The Aviator

Martin Scorsese's portrayal of Howard Hughes is by far one of the best biographies I have seen on the big screen. Leonardo DiCaprio is brilliant with his on-screen transition into the later, more crazed years of Hughes' life. Although this movie displayed the known historical background of Howard Hughes and his rise in the aviation world, I would love to see a movie based on his involvement in the... read more

"The way of the future..."

Martin Scorsese established himself as one of the best directors in Hollywood. With each new movie the crazed Scorsese fanatics praise the movie like it's the second coming.

When I watched The Aviator I was never a fan or hater of Scorsese. I am fond of some of his movies for sure. GoodFellas in particular is still a superb piece of movie-m... read more

''The way of the future.''

A biopic depicting the early years of legendary director and aviator Howard Hughes' career, from the late 1920s to the mid-1940s.

Leonardo DiCaprio: Howard Hughes

Martin Scorsese keeps it real with Avaitor. There's none of the foul language or gratuitous violence that characterized some of his most famous mob films, like Casi... read more

Description: Focusing on his early years (from the 1930 production of 'Hell's Angels' to the 1947 test flight of the Hercules (aka Spruce Goose), when he was 42), this is the story of how young Howard Hughes transformed a small fortune into a massive one. The son of the Texan inventor of an amazing drill bit who died when he was 18, leaving him with 75% of the "Hughes Tool Co.", Howard Hughes (DiCaprio) quickly moved to Los Angeles to become a Hollywood film producer, where he helped launch the career of Jean Harlow and other starlets, and producing such classics as Hell's Angels, The Front Page, Flying Leathernecks, and Scarface ( ...

“From the talented Martin Scorsesse comes an admittedly ambitious but compelling and visually stirring biopic on legendary rebel billionaire Howard Hughes. Although it is nearly three hours, I don't think the film dragged that much and I was gripped for the whole duration. My problem is to do with the secondary characters though. The Aviator is one of those films where a lot of detail goes into making the protagonist and a few more key characters convincing and relateable, but the secondary characters aren't given as much attention as well. This is not the first film to have this problem though, Kinsey which was still very good had it too, as did Chaplin. Back on target, actors like Willem Dafoe and Ian Holm are not given that much to do, they do fine with what they have, but their characte” read more

"Scorcese is a master of time periods for waking them alive and making films from is passion projects, which always transmite to the viewer from the screen. DiCaprio cannot deliver a bad performance, but brings his characters very much alive when he has such a thriving force with a right kind of project, which he managed to choose perfectly project after project and a passionate directors like Scorcese."

Best Picture Nominees (in Ten Sentences) (478 movies items)

"Howard Hughes was one of the most powerful, if not eccentric, actors, producers, directors, playboys and plane engineers in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Naturally, Hughes has been the subject of multiple films, whether as a supporting character, a fictional character inspired by him, or the subject of a biopic directed by Martin Scorsese. What makes this one, "The Aviator," so fascinating and stand out from the others is that it follows Hughes’s (Leonardo DiCaprio) struggle with obsessive-comp"
