Titanic's definitely my favorite movie of his. It's also my second favorite movie of all time.
DiCaprio's just been picking such great roles lately. Shutter Island and Inception were incredible. I think he deserves a nomination for Shutter Island, personally. His scene at the end where he finds his kids was the most gut-wrenching thing I've seen all year.
1)The Departed - first time he got my attention as an actor, personally I thought he was the best in the movie and the scene where he and Jack Nicholson are at the table talking about who the "rat" is, is one of the most intense scenes that I've seen.
2) Shutter Island - Some parts seemed out of place but there were some truly great acting parts IMO (first "vision" with wife, scribbling on the notepad, and the Lake Scene)
3) Inception - was really good throughout but IMO the role wasn't that demanding, still really good though
4) Blood Diamond - really good but accent was a little weird IMO and detracted slightly
Favorite Movies of his:
2) The Departed
3) Shutter Island
4) Catch Me If I can

did he transform well enough to your standards for that?
He's pretty much good in all of his films
The movie that made me go "Holy Shit he can act" was The Aviator. Not saying he hadn't done anything good before that but I just kinda thought of him as Jack. He was great in Basketball dairies and Gilbert Grape. He also held in own against Robert De Niro in This Boy's Life. Tho the film really isn't anything special.
I think the only bad film he has is The Man In The Iron Mask. The rest are all at least decent films. I even liked The Beach.
