I truly cannot fathom the thought of this film being better than “The Godfather” or “The Godfather Part 2″ I was flabbergasted when I read some of these reviews. OMG, “Goodfellas” is at best a well-crafted IMITATION of the number one movie of all time. And Scorsese’s best picture? No freakin’ way, haven’t any of you people seen “Raging Bull?” That is his masterpiece! I admit “Goodfellas” is an enjoyable movie, but the only thing memorable about it is Joe Pesci’s loud mouth. By the way, I think it’s very sad that Scorsese cloned this movie, set it in Vegas, and called it “Casino.” What a pile of crap that one was! “RAGING BULL” IS A MASTERPIECE, YOU MUST OWN IT! Just rent this one, it’s good, but no way would I buy it. By the way, to all you “THUG LIFE GANGSTA wanna-be’s, if you think this movie is “HARD,” check out “American Me” with Edward James Olmos, that movie makes “Goodfellas” look like “Barney.”

It’s not often that I walk out on a movie. This one, however, which I saw when it was first released, nearly threw me out of the theater. After watching the movie for about twenty minutes I kind of suspected that I had seen the whole thing. After forty minutes, I reailzed that I was caught in a loop of banality and so left the theater, along with at least one other viewer. If Scorcese succeeded in doing anything with this movie, it was to show the sadness, banality and near pathetic quality of life of those the movie portrays. In fact, if I knew this was the purpose of the movie, I’d certainly rate it higher. As it is, if crazed “soccer moms” and lunatic “sports dads,” those who are truly in need of some redeeming value in their lives all had guns, you’d have “GoodFellas: The Suburban Story.” I’m wondering if Scorcese might have loosely based this movie on the equally painfully uninteresting book, “Confederacy of Dunces.” Of course, the movie did allow Joe Pesci to perform some wonderful comic routines concerning, of all things, the theme of pinky rings.

Deserves an X rating for all of the gratuitous violence. Little to offer to a Christian-based viewer who ascribes to humanist values.

After already buying this film (a crappy DVD by the way) and a few others (All crappy transfers accept for Mean Streets.) here comes the re-releases. I will never watch another Scorcese film. My money is better spent on real Italian directors like Fedrico Fellini, Michelangelo Antonioni, or Ermanno Olmi.

Martin Scorcese joins the rank of Francis Ford Coppola. These are two directors who have based their careers in forever tarnishing the image of Italians in North Amercia. Also two directors that have ripped off their fans with poor DVD’s only to later on force them to buy again.

Kiss My ass.
