Thank you for the info Xchazz that really helped me out a lot. I will buy the film from Amazon. I msut get Casino by the sounds of it to. What is that like tho. Is it like Goodfellas?

I do like the music from Sacrface though. I think they used the sound track for the game Grand Theft Auto 3. You can see how the game is based on that ganster image like the film tho. The game does remind me of the film a little, with its underground sleezy operations and killings etc. I don't know it's such a wonderful life for some...... [Roll Eyes]

Casino in some ways is considered a sequel to Goodfellas even though none of the characters are the same. They do share Martin Scorsese as director, Michael Pileggi as writer, Robert deNiro, Joe Pesci and Frank Vincent(believe his name is Frank) in acting roles. Both movies involve the mob. Goodfellas was more a neighborhood mob family where Casino involves the mob on a much larger scale. Personally I prefer Goodfellas but Casino is a fine movie in its own right.

- Once upon a time in America. - Must see movie.
- Married to the mob. Good flick, Michelle Pfeiffer...
- Things change 1988 - Really a comedy.
- The Sicilian - Christopher Lambert. It's OK.
- The Godfather part III. - OK 1990. Close enough
- My Blue Heaven - Funny mob movie with Steve Martin. Def watch this one. 1990 - close enough.
- Raging Bull is from 1980. It's not a mob movie but it has the "Italian" feel. Joe Pesci and Deniro. Does it get any better?
- Black Rain 1989. Michael Douglas. About the Japanese mob. Very good movie

Also, include Woody Allen's "Broadway Danny Rose". Technically, not a real mob movie, but it does involve Woody being involved with a Mafia member's wife (played by Woody's then-wife Mia Farrow).

Either way, it's a great movie that everyone should see...

Ah well these will keep me going, thank you guys for the films you have put up for me and I am sure for others who are intrested in the kind of Ganster/Mob movies that have been posted up.

I must say I am not keen on Bugsy Malone. I do like the fact the cars are peddal opporated. Imagine that huh, one way of saving the planet by cutting out those fuel emmisions, install pedals, now there a solution!!!! [Wink]

Rewatched Scarface and i like it very much although it´s a tad too long and predictable storywise. This is also much more Oliver Stone (who did the screenplay) than Brian De Palma.

Lots of great scenes in this one like the interview in the beginning, the motel drug deal gone sour and the massive mansion shootout in the end.
Al Pacino rocks and personally chose this heavy overacting method. Pacino must´ve been tired after the shooting but so is the audience after this downbeat near 3 hour marathon.

Love the locations and settings, the cinematography is pure De Palma magic.
The "Push It to the Limit" montage is awesome and Giorgio Moroder penned soundtrack oozes greatness.
De Palma calls it cocaine disco pop but i love early 80s cocaine disco pop [Wink] And don´t get me wrong, Brian likes it too.

All in all, Scarface is a very good film but not as good as Carrie or Blow Out.

"Where'd you learn to speak English?"
"In eh-school. Bogart...Cagney...I like dose-guys."

"First, you get da power..."

"She like a tiger...I want her."

"Her womb is polluted."

"Fly, pelican, fly."

"The Diaz brothers come to kill me?"

"Jew-worless-piece-o-chit."

"I'm not gonna kill you, Frank. Manny, kill dis piece-o-chit."

Loads of quotable dialogue!

And here's the ultimate parody:

"You need people like me so you can point your f*cking finger and say : That's the bad guy" [Big Grin]

Anyway.. this month Arrow will release an Italian crime movie called The Climber (1975), starring Joe Dallesandro.
It tells a story very similar to the '83 version of Scarface, and some reviewers claim it was a major influence on the
DePalma movie.

Scarface is on now. I never payed attention to the details before, but now it's all making sense. Good movie. I like Michelle Pfeifer's line about Tony's car, "It looks like somebody's nightmare".
