Goodfellas (1990)

Jesus every time I remember my blog I'm like, hmm I think it's been 2 days since I wrote something, turns out there were 4, and now, well like 5 days and nothing, sorry but I've been really busy with my homework, I think C++ is gonna drive me nuts.

Anyway, since I got no time for cinemas, I decided to start doing reviews on classics and just plain old movies, maybe I'll do some I've watched more in the future, but for now, Goodfellas, for some reason I went my whole life without seeing it until now, and god is it good.


So unless it's a really known film, I won't fuck around in classic reviews, I mean if you really wanted to know if it was good, you would've already know, considering is considered in every other top 10 of all time.

But hey I can give you my opinion about the movie, I started watching and didn't even know it was based on a book or that the book was based on real life, so I was kind of expecting the same godfather mobster story we've all heard thousands of times, and I was really impressed with what I got, just the story of a man who became gangster, made his way up the mob and then fucked everything up, but every part of his life feels important, you have to be paying attention to so much at the same time, that it makes you feel really connected to the character, since you know what he went through and why he's doing what he's doing.

At the end of the day, what makes it good it's that it feels real, the actors and the actions feel real, well maybe because they were.

I could go on on every single detail of what makes it good or mention that half the cast here is in the Sopranos, I'm just gonna drop you a piece of trivia instead:

"The word "fuck" is used 296 times, for an average of 2.04 fucks per minute. About half of them are said by Joe Pesci."

Yeah, you know you're in for a ride, seriously if you haven't watched it, go now, GO WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOIN JESUS CHRIST.

  2. I never really liked watching gangster movies even though I studied film in high school. All I know is that Martin Scorsese directed the film.

  3. Funny how? Like a clown? That long take in the Copacabana was such a great scene. Seriously though what rock were you living under bro? Next you're going to tell me you've never seen Back to the Future films or Star Wars.
