Also... there was a thing on Twitter recently about how to watch The Irishman as a miniseries.
Not a fan cutting it to parts if it wasn’t intended to be. I have a feeling this weekend is the one though, magic will happen.

I agree with watching it all in one sitting. I was fortunate enough to see it in a cinema, and the length is essential to the plot. You're supposed to feel it, to realise the distance of time, and feel the characters ageing. I'm sure you'd get the same feeling from it in a 'miniseries' version, but muted.

fredo - do you guys still have 'oddfellows' in NZ?

ps Thought The Irishman was a long , pretty slog to nowhere special. Watchable enough and everybody did their best but ultimately I didn't care about any of the characters. At least Goodfellas had some kinetic energy and charisma going for it.

Ended up watching The Irishman in two seatings (couldn’t pull through the last half hour on the first go). I have to say, I agree with fredo’s assessment above 100%. Kind of disappointing, I was really looking forward to it. Perhaps, my expectations were a bit too high. Thought Romano did a pretty good job though and didn’t look weird seeing him there; didn’t think he could be anyone other than... well, Ray.

Also watched American Made (unless I just made up the name, the one with Cruise) and also meh. Not bad, but nothing special.
