    BUT - watching these movies is the human equivalent of dogs sniffing other dogs @$$holes - it's close-up examining of the worst, grossest part of life, but for some reason it needs to be done.

    Not bad, but not my favorite mafia movie. Godfather Parts I and II, A Bronx Tale, Mean Streets and Donnie Brasco are all more interesting, I thought.

    I hated Scarface though... pointlessly ugly and not entertaining.

    IMO one of the main points of the Sopranos is that it's not romantic. It's the grinding drudgery, the vocation, of sociopaths and psychopaths who know no peace or actual happiness.

    In my fine books biz I was *this close* to buying a Goodfellas script. Missed it by 5 minutes after it was offered. It was an early table script with the title "Wise Guys" crossed out with pencil and "Goodfellas" penciled in below that.

    Because of this, right?

    That had always been my understanding.
    But I'd wondered about this, as well

    Don't know. Apparently Wise Guys was the working title until that changed.

    I love the Godfather movies and The Sopranos but I didn't like Goodfellows at first. It took a while but now I think it's great!

    After Hours is Scorsese’s best movie.

    But Goodfellas is up there.

    GF is far superior. The GodF is a work of fiction.

    I binge watched the Sopranos on Hulu all in a few weeks. It got more & more tedious during the last season especially, until the stupid ending which I already knew about. Haven't watched a minute of it since. Lost all interest in the characters midway through; just merciless unfeeling animals. Let 'em all die, I don't care.

    Now, Breaking Bad, I watched the whole thing 3 or 4 times in rapid succession and I still watch select episodes often. And I'll still put on Goodfellas once a year or so. And Blow.

    Not even close, Godfather belongs to the olympus of the movies, Goodfellas is a great movie, not in the olympus though...

    Yep, I’ve seen it a time or 100. I don’t think it glorifies these people at all, but it is interesting. Seeing and hearing about people who want to be associated with the mob is kind of like people I know around here who ride motorcycles and want to be seen and associate themselves with these one-percenter outlaw motorcycle gang idiots.
