True, but taking into account that Casino is often seen as a bit of a lesser sibling to Goodfellas, Age Of Innocence isn't something that appeals to his usual fanbase at all (another one I haven't seen, incidentally), and Gangs of New York isn't that beloved either, you can see how it might look like there was a fallow period after Goodfellows*.
It probably wasn't until The Departed that he started winning over his old fans again, even if people don't talk about that one so much anymore.
I'd say he's done pretty well in the last 15 years overall, especially considering how most of his contemporaries have slipped into irrelevance over that period.
*genuine typo, but I like it
