Tat'dGreaser: I never did get the mobster hero-worship. Not really sad that this dirtbag is dead.

This quote is why.

"To us, those goody-good people who worked shiatty jobs for bum paychecks and took the subway to work every day and worried about their bills were dead. I mean they were suckers. They had no balls. If we wanted something, we just took it. If anyone complained twice they got hit so bad, believe me, they never complained again."

It's the same reason people are fascinated by Vikings or Mongol horse warriors or what have you - men who take what they want without remorse and don't take shiat off of anyone. Just because most of us have been successfully domesticated doesn't stop us from daydreaming about living outside of the constraints of civilized society.

So, I guess you're also an admirer of the top "leadership" of MS13, the Zetas and the Crips and Bloods.

But I'm gonna guess you're not.

America loves its gangsters, so long as its set to the soundtrack of Motown.



Yeah, what could I have been thinking.

Give the current crop of gang leaders few decades for the mythology to overlay the uglier parts of the business. Hell, give it a couple of centuries and there will probably be sports teams named after Crips and Bloods.

Mr. Shabooboo: Oldiron_79: Mr. Shabooboo: As someone watching Goodfellas, I'm getting a kick..Seriously..It just happened to be on!

Actually, I think Karen was sort of a sympathetic character in Goodfellas..Though she is complicit in
the crime, she really did care for Henry.She paid the price while he was in prison and having to
go on the run into the witness protection program, looking over her shoulder, etc...As they showed,once
your in that life, there is no way out except to die.

I think Pauly was also something of a sympathetic character.


You know..I think that's sorta true..He really just wanted to run his racket. He didn't want trouble,
because trouble could not only come back on him (Like his speech to Henry about how other guys
got in trouble over drugs). Unlike a lot of the other guys, I don't think he viewed going to jail
as just being "part of his job" (Like you hear Joe Pesci's character say in Casino). I view a lot of
what the real bosses did was wealth and loyalty through re-distribution of wealth. But we really
arn't shown what Pauly did to become a boss. I may have to go and look around and see what Paul
Cicero's history was..


Look up Paul Vario (the real character that was portrayed as Paul Cicero in the movie).

Hill probably wasn't around for that happening.

Cicero seemed to have started the wheels on the DeSimone execution, although Tommy had it coming.

Are you sure he didn't go back into witness protection?

Every time I flip around channels on the TV and Goodfellas is on I watch it. I almost resent the sleep lost watching this movie.

You might want to check out Paulie Vario if it's non-fiction you're after.

submitted "deadfella" 10 minutes too late.

if there is anything we can all learn from the story of Mr. Hill is that you don't leave your crack and meth pipes in your luggage in the north platte, nebraska airport. that is all.

did he use fennel like a real wop?

I have to comment on this one.
Goodfellas is one of the best, if not the best mob movie of all time.
Godfather doesnt even touch it.

The next best would be Casino, and the list goes on.

Deniro, Pesci, and Liota are the all time greats. That can not be duplicated but some of todays hacks.

Sad to see henry hill die, but it was immortalized by that movie. his legacy lives on by the greatest actors of our generation.

After reading some stuff, it looks like Paulie rose through the ranks doing the usual gangster stuff.
Running numbers, being intimidating etc.. Like Paul Sorvino, he was a hulking huge guy. 6'4 250+ and
he used that size to his advantage. He didn't get nabbed for much, a few assaults, gambling,robbery,
but nothing like murder or anything. That doesn't, of course, mean he didn't get his hands dirty. He
just didn't get caught..I guess that is how he rose to power, he didn't use a phone, he didn't get directly
involved in the dirt work, and kept a lower profile..The Machiavelli method.. :P

I liked Jimmy. He was the the kind of guy that rooted for bad guys in the movies.

What are you farking stupid or what?

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.


As he and Sammy the Bull Proved beyond a reasonable doubt, that whole "the mob will whack you if you talk" thing was more myth than reality. Sammy had 50+ mob kills under his belt, and so the mob could never find anyone willing to go after him because they were all too scared of him. Hill, well he just seemed untouchable even after he re-surfaced, partially because (thanks largely to him and Sammy) the mob has become a hollow shell of its former self.

If either Casino or Goodfellas is on TV I will stop and watch it. The problem is that sometimes both are on at the same time. Then my head simply explodes

make me some tea: At least they whacked Joe Pesci. What an asshole.

[cityofstrangers.net image 505x284]



His character in Casino (Nicky) made that character look like a boy scout.

Casino is still my all-time favorite movie, and I'm just glad I had the chance to see it in a theater during Thanksgiving weekend 1995.

IIRC, and speaking of Goodfellas.......Tom Cruise was originally considered to play Henry. HOLY shiat that would have sucked.

CSB:

Henry Hill made the local papers back in 2003....because he had recently been pulled over for a DUI over by Lake Wenatachee. Not really a cool story, but I got a kick out of it because I drive by the exit for that lake every time I visit my parents.

He was. In some scenes even he seemed fatherly, but I wonder how much of that was Pauly Cicero/Vario and how much was Pauly Sorvino.

Not a complaint, you understand, but an observation.

McGrits: Some of the real life stories are amazing. My favorite is the bit where he was being interogated after finally getting busted and told that if he didn't tell everything, he would never get to witness protection. He tells the police about the college basketball shaving and completely surprised the police. Never made the movie.


Maury references the point-shaving scandal at the moment he takes an icepick to the back of the neck.

Probably more Paul Sorvino than the character or the guy the character was based on, but getting Pauly'ed is pretty much the main reason I'd never really want to get into crime. I mean going down for something you did is one thing, Its part of the game, but going down for something some underling did behind your back.... I just don't want to play if thats part of the game.

P.S. I meant "Yotally." It's my new thang I just spewed right the frick now. Apologies.

P.P.S. Interestingly enough, I am capable of actively listening to everything she says while transfixed on her cleavage...Huzzah for one way communication absent body language!
