Saw The Color of Money for the first time. Great camera work, I fucking loved it, including Cruise. Notice Bed jumping scene similarities to Boogie Nights or am I implying too much.

What are your thoughts
Brian De Palma “Repeat yourself-only better.”

I knew that if I had the chance to direct a film that it would be an unpleasant experience, which it was and still is and never ends because one has a million chances to control things and people. Especially people and things, things and people. Controlling people . . . it's just hateful, it's the most horrible thing in the world and I'm very vindictive and unforgiving and punishing and it's horrible. And I knew I would be sucked in and I would have to control the food at craft service and I would have to control everything and if one thing didn't go right I would have to punish everyone. -Vincent Gallo

I like pool movies, this one is good, TC does a great job playing an asshole. Entertaining but not great, Paul is nice. End scattered message

It IS a great movie, you've just been brainwashed because it hasn't been on any top 100 list you've studied.
It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

so i'm going to ask for an honest opinion from everyone here...no-one felt cheated by the fact that the movie ends on the break of that fair match between vince and fast eddie? having basically built up this simmering rivalry between the jaded master and his dickheaded apprentice, didn't you wanna see who won? would the film not have been better on the potting of the final nine ball? just five minutes more?


or were they just setting it up for the third in a trilogy when paul newman has been resurrected using cryogenics? :P

No. That's not what the movie is about. The last line says it all: "Hey, I'm back."

I fucking love this movie, I think it's pretty underrated. Scorsese is his usual flawless self behind the camera and Tom Cruise is awesome as usual in front of it...definitely the 2nd best preformance of his career (only behind Magnolia).

If you've seen the Color of Money but not the Hustler you should check out the later. It's way better.

this is one of Scorsese's most overlooked film. I dig it, and i can watch it over and over the same i cant say for kundon.
its not as great as goodfellas but its a lot better then casino, to me this film is a film fanatic doing a update on a old film he loved, and it shows .

i can think of lots of films where i would love to do updates on, not a typical sequel, ala dr dolittle part 2 , but like what he did with the color of money .

that is so dead on. Good work ma man. These are the same people who say that they will not watch a movie unless critics give them props first. Yuck who needs that shit, I guess that is why so few great film makers come out yet, no nothing film snob robots are dime a dozen.

I dont really pay much mind to critics, I will look on IMDB to see what ebert gave something after I watch a movie just our of curiosity. Its not so much I dont care what they think is good, I am just too lazy to care.
