re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

casino is underrated but it is not as good as goodfellas. raging bull could be the most overrated film i've ever seen, i do not get why this is considered a great film. it's a very good film, but i'd put taxi driver, casino, and goodfellas over it easily.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

I am confused why nath posted a video with the last 30 seconds of possibly the worst sketch in Mr. Show history. When there a youtube link that is just pallies.

I recently rewatched Raging Bull and I think it has two major things going against it. So many people have stolen the plot of sadomasochistic athletes that it feels like a cliche and Scorsese feels it is necessary to show the whole story of Lamottas life.

Spoiler:


edit: Actually worst sketch in Mr. Show history is where Cross is the queen.

If you could connect the first half of goodfellas with the last half of Casino then it'd be the perfect movie...that sounds like an old joke but it's true

The Departed has solid rewatchability, it's one of the film's finer traits I think. It just isn't some masterpiece that should be put up with or above Scorcese's true great works.

Its a good/fun crime flick with lots of flaws.
