DamnYankees: How is that shot infamous? Infamous is not a synonym for famous, subby.
jake_lex: And the funny part is that wasn't even how it was planned. They were just going to have Henry and Karen go in through the front door, but the Copacabana wouldn't allow that. So they replaced it with the shot where they come in through the back.
JerseyTim: I think my favorite use of music in Goodfellas is the Ronnettes version of "Frosty the Snowman" before Jimmy has to dress down Johnny Roastbeef and Frankie Carbone for buying a Caddy and a mink right after the Lufthansa heist.
JosephFinn: And I'll admit I've somehow never seen Mean Streets; I need to fix that
skinink: And although Werewolves of London is basically the only song remembered from The Color of Money, the whole soundtrack is great. I listened to it for years then lost the tape. Now the soundtrack is no longer for sale.
JosephFinn: shiat. Time to watch Goodfellas again.(And I'll admit I've somehow never seen Mean Streets; I need to fix that.)Karen: I know there are women, like my best friends, who would have gotten out of there the minute their boyfriend gave them a gun to hide. But I didn't. I got to admit the truth. It turned me on.
sluggers: Scorsese did not have the rights to use "Be My Baby" in Mean Streets, but Phil Spector did him a solid and let him use it.
farkeruk: sluggers: Scorsese did not have the rights to use "Be My Baby" in Mean Streets, but Phil Spector did him a solid and let him use it.John Lennon talked him into it.
Pandora's Litterbox: Robert Osborne and Drew Barrymore introduced me (at long, overdue last) to Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore last evening on TCM.Damn good movie.Excellent use was made of Mott the Hoople and T.Rex.Wish more films of that quality were still being released.
Omahawg: blame star wars. character and plot out, special effect explosions in
Omahawg: memo from turner is a great song from a great soundtrack but I've never actually seen the movie.
skinink: I think Sid Vicious singing "I Did it My Way" over the Goodfellas epilogue deserves special mention.
jake_lex: I also liked the mention of the use of Jackson Browne's "Late for the Sky" in Taxi Driver. That film is -- understandably -- more famous for Bernard Hermann's incredible score, but that song just fits so perfectly there. It's the soundtrack for the moment when Travis finally truly snaps.
BeatrixK: skinink: I think Sid Vicious singing "I Did it My Way" over the Goodfellas epilogue deserves special mention.So much THIS!#3 was there -- I'm happy!
SCUBA_Archer: List fails without Harry Nilsson's Jump into the Fire to kick off Henry's last day as a Goodfella.
TimeCubeFan: Fail without Devo's 'Satisfaction' from Casino. Perfect song choice.
art_shamsky: This one' called Martin ScorseseHe makes the best farking films (x2)If I ever meet him I'm gonna grab his farkin' neck and just shake himAnd say thank you thank you for makin' such excellent farkin' moviesThen I'd twist his nose all the way the fark aroundAnd the rip off one of his ears and throw itLike a like a like a farkin' frisbeeI wanna chew his farkin' lips off and grab his head and suck out one of hiseyes and chew on it and spit it out in his faceAnd thank you thank you for all of your farkin' filmsThen I'd pick him up by the hair swing him over my head a few timesAnd throw him across the room and kick all his farkin' teeth in and thenstomp on his face 40 or 50 timesCuz he makes the best farking films he makes the best farking filmsI've ever seen in my lifeI farkin love himI farkin love him
Lor M. Ipsum: No Last Waltz?Fail.
