When did this happen?

Since when has Leonardo DiCaprio been a good actor?

I am sure many will argue with me that he has ALWAYS been a good actor. But whoever says that did not see The Beach or Titanic.

I mean was it when he became the Scorsese darling? Was it when he decided he should just stick to angsty? I cannot figure it out.

I will admit in his early career he had a couple good parts, like in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" and "Basketball Diaries" but other than that....blah.

But NOW. You look at like his newer flicks and damn the boy cannot lose.

Gangs of New York
The Aviator
The Departed
Revolutionary Road
Blood Diamond

I am impressed and I am now a fan.

Good job Leo...way to not have an eating disorder or resort to cable ministry.

I'm glad someone agrees with me. He was awful, AWFUL for so long and I hated any film he was in and now...I watch...and I become less ashamed as the films go by...

I didn't see Titanic or The Beach, so I've always thought of him as a very, very good actor. I can't even imagine him being awful...that kinda makes me wanna go watch those two movies. Well, The Beach maybe. I refuse to watch Titanic. :P
