Jack Reacher (the first one) is fucking amazing, even if it has some quirky moments and weird performances. But the action is so thoughtful and interesting, I would even say that it's one of the best action films if the decade.
The Irishman is his seventh masterpiece in a row which is a landmark no one else has achieved that I'm aware of.
Truly the one and only goat.
It has been said Scorsese has made a masterpiece per decade. People seem to think The Irishman continued this streak. I don't agree but that's what some people are saying. But your claim is entirely too much and you know it. Nobody makes seven masterpieces let alone in a row. I don't what cameras and film stock he used on Taxi Driver and Raging Bull but they still look fucking incredible. His recent films looks bland in comparison.
The 2010s is Scorsese’s best decade. Shutter Island, Hugo, Wolf of Wall Street, Silence, and now Irishman. He just keeps killing it. With more work on docs and an Emmy win for Boardwalk Empire. Kind of iffy on his 2000s output though.
