4.0 out of 5 stars SO HE IS THE AVIATOR..!!! Feb. 5 2007
Format:DVD
Well..many people downplayed this movie, I can see why, if you can hold on through the first half hour, which is a little slow in story telling, you will find this a fascinating movie...so many twists and turns, DiCapreo shows exellence in acting Hughes, whom I wondered his part in aviation, now I know it's big deal...a trully strange and strong character, his loves include Hepburn and Gardner....you go inside Hollywood competition, the Story of TWA versus Pan Am...really very interesting movie, for that price...do not hesitate to buy...

5.0 out of 5 stars DiCaprio’s Intense Portrayal of Howard Hughes May 14 2014
By Stella Carrier TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I am lucky to have originally watched my first showing of “Aviator” back in 2005 through a movie theater in San Diego California (I use to live in California when I was still in the military). Aviator is a captivating movie that highlights Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance as Howard Hughes. The film captures Howard Hughes rise in wealth and fame during his lifetime through his work in aviation and the Hollywood film industry. There are multiple popular celebrities that featured in this film such as: Cate Blanchett, John Reilly,Kate Beckinsale, Alan Alda, Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, Gwen Stefani, Ian Holm, Danny Huston, and Brent Spiner. I admit that I purchased this dvd due to being a fan of DiCaprio’s acting and noticed the great bonuses which include:
Disc One:
Feature commentary by director Martin Scorcese, Editor Thelma Schoonmaker, and Producer Michael Mann, an image of Leonardo DiCaprio pictured with Kate Beckinsale
Disc Two (many multiple features such as):
Deleted Scene: Howard tells Ava about the car accident. A Life Without Limits: The Making Of The Aviator. The Role of Howard Hughes in Aviator history. There is also the image of Leonardo DiCaprio walking through a beach wearing a suit.
Modern Marvel Feature: A History channel documentary on Howard Hughes. A feature titled “The Affliction of Howard Hughes: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. OCD panel discussion with director Martin Scorcese, Leonardo DiCaprio, and feature of widow Terry Moore. An Evening with Leonardo DiCaprio and Alan Alda. The Visual effects of “Aviator” and Constructing the Aviator (the work of Dante Ferretti.
More disco two bonus features: Leonardo DiCaprio pictured with Gwen Stefani (in a scene from the movie) and another image of Kate Beckinsale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Howard Hughes the Visionary Oct. 2 2013
By Lynda TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An incredible story about a creative inventor mathematics genius, who put his perfectionism and passion into creating aviation wonders; he set into motion qualities that continue to be paradigm in today's technology formats. He also applied his visions to the film industry. A visionary genius, yet struggling with a mental disorder. His germaphobia began with his mother insisting on cleansing routines. She was trying to protect him from dying due to illnesses prevalent at that time, and lack of medical knowledge. Also, little was know how to assist people suffering mental anguish.

The actors are fabulous under Martin Scorsese's tutelage... The extras DVD is very informative, teaching us another side of Howard Hughes, and how the actors reflected the characters, especially Leonardo applying himself to become Hughes. I love the time periods 1920-30-40-50s, the people, costumes, and sets, draw us into the movie. We feel compassion for Howard Hughes who became an eccentric recluse to maintain his privacy and hide his mental struggles, especially from the obtrusive press.

For those who appreciate Aviation, and those who appreciate character movies, I recommend this DVD. It's living art, based on life and realities of those years.
