Flicks on 6 – Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘Shutter Island’ and Oscar Shorts

This week on “Keep it Local” we talked about Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island, Hollywood Theatre is showcasing the Oscar nominated shorts, plus my Top 6 includes Mother and Sonicsgate.

Shutter Island

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow, Michelle Williams
Running Time: 2 hrs 15 mins
Rating: R
Release Date: February 19, 2010

PLOT: Based on Dennis Lehane’s novel, U.S. Marshall Teddy Daniels (DiCaprio) and his new partner Chuck (Ruffalo) are called to a remote island off the coast of Massachusetts to investigate the disappearance of a woman from the island’s hospital for the criminally insane.

WHO’S IT FOR? This is not a horror film. This is a thriller. There are also moments where Shutter Island truly takes its time. Be ready for some slow (but good) scenes. The blood is intense, but nothing compared to a slasher flick, and it’s less than Inglourious Basterds.

EXPECTATIONS: I felt like I was waiting forever for this film. Originally it was due out in October. That’s normally a red flag. But when’s the last time Scorsese has truly messed up a movie? I’m glad you asked. It was 1999 with Nic Cage in Bringing Out The Dead.

Or just watch below to hear what I have to say. Plus, you’ll have a chance to win a copy of Matt Damon’s The Informant!. Though I always recommend reading me instead of watching me.
