Gotti

Post by Rob Lister »

Hits theaters this week

232 people have already rated it 6.5
I'm not sure if they've seen it. But of those 232, 60% gave it a 10 and 15% gave it a 1. It is almost certainly neither. Maybe the 15% are just Travolta Haters.

I will watch it once it becomes available on one of my existing feeds.


I have to give the trailer a 6.4

How the fuck would I know? You need to get woke more than shemp.

But I can tell you this, John Gotti was no Tony Soprano

Here's Tony talking about Gotti


I'll go further and say that will I do enjoy a good Travolta film, John Travolta is no James Gandolfini, MHRIP.

Travolta is a horrid actor. He is Keanu Reeves horrible. He is Shia LeBeuf awful.

Watching him act is like watching a white guy dance ... "one two three step"

Don't get me started.

He was too busy making a fool of himself in front of like-butt-hurt people.

I'd rather wake up next to a severed horse head than ever watch "Gotti" again.

Starring in this mobster biopic that deserves to get whacked is an offer Travolta should have refused. Insane testimonials from Gotti supporters at the end are as close as this shitshow will ever get to good reviews.

Gotti is a connect-the-dots disaster -- the don's greatest hits, so to speak -- without discernible theme or cohesive narrative.

When Gotti tells viewers, speaking directly to the camera at film's end, that they'll never see another man like him, an attorney should really spring up and object that the statement assumes facts not in evidence.

Closing reportage of everyday New Yorkers brashly extolling Gotti's virtues upon his death, painting him, without any irony, as some kind of local hero, pretty much tells you where this picture's coming from.

There's not really a story here. It's more a series of recognizable scenes from any number of gangster movies...

There are 44 credited producers on the picture (good. lord.), and not one person had the nerve to question just what kind of derivative, borderline nonsensical film was being made.

Gotti ends up feeling like a kitschy assemblage of other directors' ideas.
