LOL, OMG, J/K, BRB, LMAO, K, :)

Ranking the mob movies.

#1- The Godfather
I feel like I'd be shot, without ever see it coming, if I didn't have this movie as number 1.

#2- Goodfellas
Awesome movie. Based on truth, tremendous cast. What more could you want. the rewatchability is off the charts.

#3- Donnie Brasco
Another movie based on truth, prefect sad sack acting from Pacino and Johnny Depp before he went gay was awesome. The fuggedetaboutit scene is one of my favorites movie scenes of all time ever, legendary.

#4- The Godfather II
Rare a sequel is this good. Happen to win an Oscar too. This may be Robert DeNiro's best performance as a young Vito Corleone.

#5- Casino
The story about the Mob taking over Vegas. I'm not sure if you heard of a guy named Joe Pesci but he rocks the shit out of this move as the lil tough guy Nicky Santoro.

#6- A Bronx Tale
Don't waste ya talent C.

#7- The Departed
Scorcese does it again. Does he know Mob movies or what.

#8- Mean Streets
An older movie also directed by Scorcese. De Niro and Keitel were great, good story and nice violence. Also a good time piece. Really makes you feel like you are actually in Little Italy.

#9- The Untouchables
It wouldn't be a list without the story of Elliot Ness and Al Capone.

#10- Eastern Promises
Man the Russian mob is rough.

There can only be 10.

Any chance Cheryl Miller gets laid? None right? No way another human beds that alien. Kobe shitted on Jesus Shuttlesworth moment last night. He's a mamba. Yo St. John's is back on the scene and couple with the Knicks being somewhat back that makes MSG the mecca again. Wait? Is this why you guys hate New Yorkers? Comments like that? Shit. I'm sorry.

Sorry that NYC is awesome!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA....

That was fun. First post in a minute not talking football. And seriously if they strike, I'll be back when they come back. I don't care if they strike half the season or even the full season. I'll be tight but I won't boycott NFL after. It's too awesome. If pussy went on strike would you not have some when it came back? No. Unless your name is Andy.

El Padrino said...

"most of those movies seem to take place in NY?

most is strong

the departed is bahstan, casino vegas and midwest mob, untouchables is chicago, easter promises is i think london but russian mob and godfather 2 while is set around the corleons in nyc is about an hour about mob in italy (the country)

El Padrino said...

H said...

Jug, your last name is Italian??

Jugdish said...

yes, but i don't make my own sauce

kill all the gophers said...

i would say

1) Casino
2) Godfather I/II
3) Untouchables
4) Goodfellas


there are only 4 (5 if you count Godfather I/II separately) worth ranking....they are in a whole nother league from movies like Donnie Brasco, Departed, Bronx Tale, etc. (note I haven't seen Mean Streets though)

El Padrino said...

eastern promises has a suite dong scene

"yes, but i don't make my own sauce"

i would semi-agree with this
still fantastic though

my grandfather on my dad's side is from sicily...but yeah i don't look italian. got a lot of irish in me too

kill all the gophers said...

"Haven't seen Mean Streets or The Untouchables."

It amazes me how people have forgotten about how good the Untouchables is. It was huge when it came out, won a shitload of awards....but for some reason it hasn't had the legs of Casino, Goodfellas, or Godfather


not sure why that is; I watched it again last year and it holds up fine IMO

kill all the gophers said...

actually I suspect that it's because Kevin Costner is in it; he does a really great job....but people really soured on him after Waterworld

kill all the gophers said...

I haven't liked anything dude has done since the mid-90s (I have heard Tin Cup is good though) but Field of Dreams and Untouchables are both in my all time top 20 movies (and Bull Durham might be top 50). It's amazing how many quality movies he did in the 80s and early 90s. and how many shitty movies he has done since

El Padrino said...

how people have forgotten about how good the Untouchables is

^this

especially since it's an actual history lesson on Capone and Ness

El Padrino said...

"I haven't liked anything dude has done since the mid-90s"

3000 miles to Graceland and Open Range solid

the latter was excellent in my opinion

El Padrino said...

how many shitty movies he has done since

#1- The Godfather -seen it

#2- Goodfellas - seen it

#3- Donnie Brasco - never saw it

#4- The Godfather II - don't think i saw it

#5- Casino - seen it

#6- A Bronx Tale - tried watching it because el pad said it was good, but had to quit because it was horrible. ns

#7- The Departed - never seen it

#8- Mean Streets - never even heard of it let alone seen it.

#9- The Untouchables - never seen the whole thing

#10- Eastern Promises - never seen it

#11- Grease 2 - seen it, great flick.

El Padrino said...

well at least you saw goodfellas

wasn't kevin costner in it? and christian slater?

if so, there is your answer.

El Padrino said...

casino and godfather 1

El Padrino said...

"and christian slater?"

i dont recall him in it

tem said...

oh i see costner was already covered.

anyway, yeah tin cup was good because cheech was in it.

tem said...

open range was solid, but that is because Duvall was born to be in Westerns.

tem said...

well it seems slater was not in it.

he was in Mobsters though. whatever the fuck that is.

El Padrino said...

slater was great in True Romance

borderline mob movie

El Padrino said...

Walken steals that show though

tem said...

never seen true romance.

shocking.

H said...

I liked Thirteen Days. Costner wasn't awful in that. Well except for his attempt at a Boston accent.

kill all the gophers said...

"how many shitty movies he has done since"


Waterworld, The Postman, 3000 Miles to Graceland (IMO only, agree to disagree), the Guardian...and a bunch of stuff I see on imdb that I've never heard of

kill all the gophers said...

slater was great in True Romance

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

it's my favorite Tarantino movie (ns). The scene with Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken (where Hopper is schooling Walken on his black ancestry) is one of the best movie scenes EvAA (ns)

remember our "how did they know _____ taste good" conversation awhile back

i imagine the first guy who saw something like cotton growing and trying to eat it

man this shit is awful

then trying to cook it only to see it singed into dust

then like a smart man from another territory showed him a way to make clothing out of it

i think about shit like this often

who looked at a sheep and said, you know what, that wool keeps them warm, I bet if I cut it off those suckers I could make me a sweater out of it.

Blue said...

I mean, did they start out by killing all the sheep and then shearing them before they realized, oh hey, if we cut the hair off it grows back.

Blue said...

or who said, you see that cow? i bet his skin would make a great pair of shoes.

El Padrino said...

probably killed first

Blue said...

the cow one i get, because they already kilt the cow for the meat, and so then they have all this skin left over that gets all hard and crunchy, perfect for shoes

Blue said...

these are all things that are going to be in my book

El Padrino said...

skins of animals like cow and deer were used for clothing too like a pancho

Blue said...

who said..'these grapes taste awful, but if we get the juice from them and let it sit for a year, it'll be some fantastic wine'

I have not seen any of those movies.

re-awake yourself

Jugdish said...

the cow one i get, because they already kilt the cow for the meat, and so then they have all this skin left over that gets all hard and crunchy, perfect for shoes


maybe they kilt the cows for the shoes and they didn't know what to do with all the dead cow bodies, so they burned them. when they did that, they said "Hey, that shit smells pretty good...maybe we should eat it."

Jugdish said...

maybe they kilt the cows for the shoes

basically they busted him for being an idiot

i'd bet that in the next 5-7 years it gets de-criminalized federally

kill all the gophers said...

"Withstood a constitutional attack on the grounds of self-incrimination in Sisson v. Triplett, 428 NW 2d 565."

I just looked up the case because it baffled me how they get around the self-incrimination protections....turns out:

"(2) Act, which includes confidentiality provision, which explicitly provides that dealers are not required to give name, address, or other identifying information, and which permits stamps to be mailed to any address or picked up by one other than the dealer, does not violate state and federal privileges against self-incrimination."

-hilarity, I wonder how many of those stamps have been submitted; I'm gonna guess 0

kill all the gophers said...

"i'd bet that in the next 5-7 years it gets de-criminalized federally"

I think so too; it is a cause that unites progressive liberals and tea partying libertarians.

unless Huckabee is elected; he'd veto that shit down

Blue said...

what's a stamp?

El Padrino said...

weed grows man

legalize that shit, tax it, profit close the budget a bit

Blue said...

here they have a registry for everyone that gets a prescription for it.

You get a card. and can go into a dispensary (which are all over the place) show your card and buy. And they have a ton of high quality stuff, lots of variants.

kill all the gophers said...

a medical mj growing went on the news and was bragging about what he was doing and how great business was...etc.


^^^^^^^^^^^^^


smrt; you'd think with his line of work he'd realize it's still federally illegal to grow weed without a gov't waiver (which they only grant for scientific study)

Blue said...

it's like a PBA card, but better

Blue said...

"legalize that shit, tax it, profit close the budget a bit"

that's what they did in Denver, gov't gets a good bit of taxes from it

kill all the gophers said...

"what's a stamp?"


tax stamps? They affix those to every pack of cigs sold in the US; I guess they figure in theory they can regulate and tax weed that way too


but really, it's a bs system they know nobody will use, just to get around the 5th A.

El Padrino said...

denver rocks

if only it was on a coast

kill all the gophers said...

Whatever party is in control when they legalize and tax it is going to get a huuuge political windfall, in that it is going to cut a ginormous chunk out of our deficit. And I suspect the results will not be that bad for public safety, kids, etc. (shit, it's already almost as easy for kids to buy pot underage as it is cigs)

the cynic in me says most Republicans won't support it though because they want high deficits, at least for the time being, to justify cutting programs they don't like (i.e. programs aimed at helping the poor)...which is why I also believe Bush racked up the deficit (under Rove's direction) and how some can rail against our deficit and then just as passionately support the Bush tax cuts for the top 2% (which accounts for 25% of our deficit)


but again, cynic.

i'd rather talk about easter candy


ok, but one last CoL thing to add about legalization

The one thing that gives me pause is the lack of a quick test for people driving under the influence of mj.

It's dangerous, and if people use visine, the eye test is too subjective...field sobriety tests are imperfect as well, and easily exploited by accomplished attorneys.

so...not sure about legalization just yet
