    Dear TTW Posters,

    Is there anyone else a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio? Basically, I grew up watching his movies. His recent movie, Inception, is coming out in July 16. The movie gets great positive feedback from the Rotten Tomatoes. Here is a Trailer at http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi4219471385/

    Enjoy!

    I hated Leo for the longest time untill i watched the departed and then i was like "This dude is amazing!."

    Shutter island was okay but inception looks awesome and ive been looking forward to it all summer, hope its good.

    I liked him in the sitcom "Family Ties".

    I think he has gone downhill since then.

    First off, this movie looks greeeat. I am really looking forward to it, probably the movie of the year. Its ratings have been more than good but outstanding. it was a 97% on rotten tomatoes which is very rare on that site. Love Leo, really liked him in The Departed. The Departed is one of my all time favs.

    Really can't wait for this movie

    Don't forget about his masterpiece- Titanic. One of my favorite.

    I like movies like Inception.

    They have a good plot, (esp. if it has DeCaprio), it has action, CGI effects, I like them.

    But he's fatter than he was from Titanic...not liking that so much. :/

    I wouldn't call Titanic a masterpiece. That movie made me want to puke, it was awful.

    With that being said, Inception looks like it'll be crazy. Nolan is the man, and I can't wait to see it.

    Even people I know who don't care for epic romances thought Titanic was well made and well acted, diverting and entertaining, and the critics generally praised it. It made someone want to puke? You'd have to have no detectable heart or soul.

    I never liked Titanic too much, and I always thought DiCaprio was too much of a cheesey romance actor for a while. But his recent films have been superb and he is really showing that he is one of the best actors out there. One of my favorite actors now, actually!

    I've enjoyed practically all his post Titanic movies, and have come to appreciate Titanic for being pretty epic. Good stuff.

    I hated Titanic, but I think Leo picks great movies so I always watch them. Titanic was a Cameron movie and he is a massive cheesbag.

    Gangs of New York is amazing for a better example. The Beach was even pretty cool.

    Shutter Island wasn't even THAT bad. It wasn't awful by any means.

    I will definitley check out Inception.

    I like Prestige as well. Christopher Nolan is a British-American film director, 40 years old. He is best known for directing a movie of "Memento".

    I agree, it was quite anticlimactic for me. Most probably because I expected something amazing!

    Like many kids in back junior high I resented the popculture loveydovey controllable doting limpwristed manboys like Leo or Nsync that could fulfilled every whim of, steal the attention of the girls in my class. Any social pressure for men conform to lovey dovey manboys was resented.

    Seems female sexual preference have finally broken through more resistance and girlyboy justin beiber hairstyle syndrome has overtaken teenage boys.

    Both genders are going to always have their fantasy idols they prop up, but as female preferance and pressure for males to become ever more doting and obedient & emmasculate becomes ever more pronounced in the coming years, it'd just be nice for the mainstream to at least acknowledge that females too do to what the male portion of society has been heavily criticized for.

    Now days women do no evil and men are the horrible things like Jessie James and Tiger Woods.

    Now days I've come to like Leo alot, he's earned his chops and is quite a skilled actor.

    Great movie, story grips you right till the end. Interesting storyline a dream within a dream within a dream.

    The scene towards the end which takes place at the wintry location looks similar to one in Batman Begins.

    There is something about Ellen Page that makes her really attractive.

    Shutter Island was well-acted, but the story was so predicable it was scary. I watched it a few days ago and by the 45th or so minute I could tell what would happen for rest of the story. A good movie? Yes. But great? Naw.

    I can't wait for Inception, though. Might go see it tonight!

    I'm looking forward to seeing it. I gained a lot more respect
    for DiCaprio after hearing firsthand from his acting coach how
    hard he works to prepare for each role.

    btw, in case anyone is interested, check out the book
    "Intent to Live" by Larry Moss. Very interesting book giving
    insight into the preparation of actors by one of the top teachers
    and coach of many oscar winning/nominated actors.

    Caught the midnight showing last night. Awesome movie, probably the best I've seen all year. Make sure you stay attentive when you watch it though otherwise you can get lost. In fact, I'm gonna go watch it a second time. 2 thumbs up.

    I saw a midnight showing of it. It was awesome! Great, intricate story line where things are tied together and the story, as deep as it was, was easy to follow. Everything will just make sense at the end. Or will it?

    It's a thumbs up from me.

    I like the final part of it. It's a reality or dream depends on a person's state of mind.

    I saw it, loved it, going to buy. It was great from beginning to end and the two and a half hours flew by. I really loved it. 10/10. The ending even kept you guessing which is always great. I think I need to see it a few more times to really pick up and understand everything.

    I thought it was really good (even if not Scorsese's best.) I guess I'm the only person in the universe that really liked it.

    LOL. Maybe we should make this easier by making a list of those that ARE NOT illuminati. Those basturds seem to have connections everywhere. I've heard that even Paul the octopus is an illuminati. :)

    He already said it. James P. Unfotuanetley, Squire. Third Earl of Huggingtittlessey.

    J.P. Unfotuanetley made a name for himself in the London of the 1960s, creating such products as the "Spanish Fly" aphrodisiac, and the "Incredible Sea Monkeys." After winning a landmark settlement against a toilet paper company for damages to his sphinctex sustained during a diarrhea attack elicited by an unholy consumption of Jolt Cola and Slim Jims throughout the 1980s, he has spent all his financial resources to subvert all that is sacred in society, promoting such acts as "Vanilla Ice" and "Backstreet Boys." Currently, he is the dark hand in Hollywood that has produced such subversive films as "Bring it On" and "Paulie." Some day his crimes against humanity will be known to all. For now, it's up to some valiant few to live with the terrible knowledge that this m.enace to society is free amongst us.
