Yeah, DiCaprio is just a good actor with a name that draws in an audience. He's certainly not the best actor or the biggest name, but he's good and big enough for a movie to make some dough on, if it's of decent quality and the budget isn't sky high.
I remember when both 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'The Thin Red Line' came out. I saw both in the theater, and 'Saving Private Ryan' is head and shoulders above the other. In fact, I thought 'The Thin Red Line' was boring and a waste of money.
I thought shutter islands sound track was AWFUL. too loud, incongruent, and as deep as the kiddie pool. ruined the movie for me.
