Days Gone By: De Niro and Scorcese

I have added two reviews to the Yesteryear section:

Taxi Driver (1976)

Taxi Driver

Grade: B

Raging Bull (1980)

Raging Bull

Grade: B

I like both. I do not love either.

    • I do think Taxi Driver is the better of the two and honestly deliberated on whether or not to give that one a B+. I think it has some of its own flaws, though, so I opted not to leave it as a B.

  1. I’m one of the minority film bloggers who don’t put Scorsese on a pedestal so I don’t know if I’d even LIKE either one of these. I might give Raging Bull a shot though I’m not into boxing movies either, ahah.

    • I don’t hold Scorcese on much of a pedestal either. I think he’s artistically gifted, but I also think he makes narrative missteps in most of his movies, these two included.

      For what it’s worth, I think Taxi Driver is a bit better than Raging Bull.
