This review is from: The Aviator (Two-Disc Special Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
This really wasn't the usual sort of movie I thought interested in to be honest.I'd never heard of Howard Huges before and I'm not interested in Aviation, or any type of old fashioned American Historical type subjects. Plus it's a very long movie, I thought I wouldn't be able to sit though it.
But to my surprise I really enjoyed it! I just watched it last night and I couldn't help watching bits over and over again wanting more. But every time I tried to skip a scene I got hooked into it. There were so many scenes I enjoyed. But most of all I thought Leonardo DiCaprio's performance was just outstanding! I think he's underated as an actor because of the pretty boy image but he is really talented. I've only recently started to recognise him a serious actor. He portrayed Howard Huges with such intensity and emotion. I found the movie educational too in a way,it tought me so much about things I knew nothing about. I usually like the usual bland romantic comedies that are always released but this was an just an epic movie, truly brilliant!
