Having a hard time understanding why Scorsese made this film, outside of an opportunity to pay
homage to those who constructed the building blocks of his craft. The characters were emotionally elsewhere, and I can't say with any certainty that I liked nor cared about any of them even after spending 2 hours with them. If they can't seem to connect to one another with any sort of recognizable human emotion (whether hose emotions be positive or negative), what chance does the audience have to do the same? The 3D was nice, but nothing to get excited about. There were a few 3D visual tricks that got some chuckles, but when all the characters all have a flat-affect of sorts, it's hard to laugh with and/or at them. I haven't read the book, and perhaps the movie is true to that, but given how unsatisfying the movie felt I'm not sure I'd bother.
