The Aviator

A friend warned me that it could be three hours of my life that I could never get back.

While it is true that I will never get that time back, it was worth it. Leo can act. Cate Blanchett is Hepburn -- it's a little uncanny. The story is engrossing and the three hours flew by.

However, The movie was a little too self-indulgent. Like Gangs of New York, Scorsese likes the material more than we do. And, unfortunately, he leaves so many details out, its hard to believe that movie was still three hours long.

If you like movies, for movies sake, this one is worth it. But "Best Picture" -- nope.
