Lorelle: make me some tea: At least they whacked Joe Pesci. What an asshole.[cityofstrangers.net image 505x284]He definitely deserved the Oscar he won for that role.
make me some tea: I love that movie.
NewportBarGuy: make me some tea: I love that movie.I'm pretty sure it's in the Top 5 list of anyone I want to be friends with, or admit that I know.
FishyFred: I'm amazed he lasted this long. After he went into witness protection, he couldn't stay on the straight and narrow and he went back to a life of crime.
Benevolent Misanthrope: NewportBarGuy: make me some tea: I love that movie.I'm pretty sure it's in the Top 5 list of anyone I want to be friends with, or admit that I know.Same here. I wouldn't even consider liking anyone who didn't like this movie.

I wouldn't even consider liking anyone who didn't like this movie.Personally, of all the Martin Scorsese mob movies, Goodfellas was the best one. The Departed and Casino were excellent, but I think what put Goodfellas at the top was that there were no sympathetic characters. Departed had Leo as the "good guy", Casino's DeNero was sympathetic because he was a good father and just a gambler.Goodfellas every single character wanted that life. Every character was out for themselves and every character was ready to betray another. Even Henry Hills wife got moist at the fact that her man was a gangster.
bluorangefyre: I remember the story he told of when he was nominated, he just KNEW they wouldn't give him the Oscar, so he got loaded. Then lo and behold they called his name, and on the way up he was quickly trying to put together a speech, but realized what a mess it'd be, so he went up there, said a few words, and left.
dickfreckle: I think my favorite part of Goodfellas is when the piano chord from "Layla" crashes down and it cuts to the front end of that pink Cadillac. It was a weird marriage of beauty and horror that, like other forms of art, I can't explain but know when it elicits a strong response.And then there's that litany of boozy rock and roll (Stones' "Memo From Turner," "Monkey Man," "Mannish Boy" by Muddy Waters while inhaling blow) that just perfectly captures the bizarre day Hill was having just before being busted. Scorcese has always had a gift for the music matching the scene.However..It's important that we remember not recall Hill for his highly stylized image from the film. The dude was a scumfark. Sometimes white people rant about how young black males idolize dopers and killers, yet they seem to forget how they worship the better-dressed white versions in cinema. I've caught myself doing it.A thug is a thug.
dudemanbro: What am I, a schmuck on wheels?
robmilmel: Henry forgot the two greatest things in life- never rat on your friends, and always keep your mouth shut.Kinda surprised he was allowed to live after that.
farkingismybusiness: I liked Jimmy. He was the the kind of guy that rooted for bad guys in the movies.
ManateeGag: [kingofthehill.edogo.com image 225x225]RIP Hank Hill
Confabulat: I liked him on the Howard Stern show. That guy would be so hammered at 9 AM he could barely talk.
Oznog: [www.mediabistro.com image 580x303]Damn it feels good to be a gangsta.
