Movies: Eccentric Howard

Caught the life story of eccentric millionaire (billionaire?) Howard Hughes in the Scorcese film, "Aviator". And while it's mighty interesting, found De Caprio's performance totally un-worthy of all the Oscar hype.  It seems to me that he's yet to outgrow his pretty boy image, which is apparent in his mannerisms and the squeaky voice. I don't know how on earth he's even considered for an Oscar but I don't think he came close to Jamie Foxx's performance in "Ray." But back to the movie, the bottomline is, to each his own quirk. We all have our own personal demons, and oftentimes, no amount of money can make them go away.
