I just watched Goofellas for the first time.

I liked it and it was great but i was a little let down.


*bump

elaborate please.




well i saw Casino a few years ago and i really liked it.  So many people told me that Goodfella's was way better than Casino so i was really hyped to see Goodfellas.  I finally got it off Netflix and when i sat down to watch it i just felt let down.  I mean i enjoyed it and thought it was a really strong movie but i guess the hype just thhrew me off.

it could also be that Casino looks so much better, and the Goodfellas dvd is total bunk...
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Well, Casino and Goodfellas have so much in common, I always felt Casino was an evolution of Goodfellas. They're both awesome, but I think Casino is more entertaining and fun. Which isn't to say Goodfellas isn't, but you all know what I mean.

According to dvd.ign's Most Anticipated DVDs for 2004:

GoodFellas
Publisher: Warner Home Video
Publication Date: September

The Pitch: Finally, one of the best gangster movies gets a proper DVD treatment.

Why it's Going to Rock: Just having a new single-sided disc with a new transfer will be a blessing, as the current disc on the market is one of the first films released on DVD and you have to flip it part way through the movie. But this movie, along with other Scorsese masterpieces, will get a two-disc treatment with extensive input and involvement by Martin himself. De Niro isn't one for participating in DVD extras but I really hope he takes part in this one because it was one of his defining moments. Ditto Joe Pesci, who hasn't acted in years and has turned to a singing career.

that's great. i was just thinking they'd probably be doing that soon.  i held out on recently getting Heat AND Enemy of the State AND Goodfellas which are ALL being put out in good editions soon, so my patience will be rewarded.  8)

more than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. one path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. the other, to total extinction. let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
