Quentin Tarantino movies can be a hit or miss since the Kill Bill movies, and this one is a miss for me. Yes, there’s lot of corny humor yet the gory fight scenes made me squirm (yes Kill Bill was gory but just different all together and maybe because of “who” did the gory scenes). Wasn’t my type of movie.

To say the least this movie is riveting and lives up to the title! Long only because there a lot of scenes without words (Leonardo). The cinematography is absolutely gorgeous. There are scenes that are hard to watch yet I made it through them (due to so much hype about the gory scenes I became desensitized). I do expect Leonardo to have a long awards Season with lots of wins! This movie is based on a true story. I did find it hard sometimes to understand what Tom Hardy’s character was saying (I think he picks these kinds of roles for some reason, lol).

Please click the link to view all the winners for this year’s Golden Globes Awards Ceremony; I did a happy dance for Leonardo DiCaprio for ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.
Wow, that’s what I thought the whole time while watching this film. I was totally captivated from beginning to end – all 3 hours! This film is NOT for anyone who will be offended by “anything”. If you’re a “religious” person, this is not the film for you. Raw, raunchy, over-the-top, and sinful behavior is mostly what this film is about and it’s depicted quite well. In my opinion, this is Leonardo DiCaprio’s best performance to date! I loved him in ‘Titanic’ yet this is a totally different kind of film. Good chemistry and acting by an ensemble cast (honorable mention of Jonah Hill). This film is depicted from a TRUE story about the life of Jordan Belfort. Leonardo definitely deserves all award nominations for his portrayal of Jordan and I hope he wins the Oscar. ALERT: This film is NOT for children or teenagers that accompany adults that you don’t want exposed to what will be shown on screen.

This movie is visually stunning! I didn’t know it was in 3-D yet I was pleasantly surprised and I did enjoy the effects. The movie is long (143 minutes) and the storyline could have wrapped 30 minutes sooner. This is a love story, pretty good acting, reminded me of a musical yet it didn’t work for me. I also didn’t think Jay-Z’s music connected to the Era.
PG-13; Drama/Romance; 143 minutes
(a very generous) 3 stars out of 5 stars (probably should be 2.5 stars 🙂
