Well, I would like some suggestions for some of the good ghetto gangsta and mafia gangster movies. What are some good ones that are similar to the following movies that I've seen?

Menace II Society
Juice
New Jack City
Boyz N the Hood
In Too Deep
Friday
Next Friday
Don't be a Menace
Donnie Brasco


I have one more question, I watched this one mafia movie and I can't remember the name of it. Well, there were 3 friends that were normal kids and then one of them started to work with the mafia. In the beginning of the movie when they were kids, he found a gun out on the beach. One of the kids found a puppy in a car and the other, I think found cigarettes. Later, one of the friends works at a meat shop. The mafia leader who the guy that found the gun cuts off this guys ear in the meat shop. He cut his ear because he wore an ear on a necklace from a war. Does anyone know what movie I'm talking about?

The movie you're writing about is Brooklyn Rules.

I've heard of Colors, is it about Crips and Bloods or just gangs in general?

It's been a while since I saw this movie, but it's set in South Central L.A., so you'd expect Crips, Bloods and latino gangs. The main characters are police officers though. You may also want to check out the Colors article at Wikipedia.

The Pope of Greenwich Village is actually a real underrated movie from the late 80s starring Mickey Rourke and Eric Roberts as connected workaday thugs who f*ck up bad. Real good stuff.

I was just coming here to mention these films, I was shocked that they hadn't already been mentioned.

Anyway, I just watched 'A Bronx Tale' for the first time last night after someone gave it to me for free, and it's a fantastic game, and the story was really gripping. I like how it tackles multiple issues, such as the whole race issue, instead of just been your typical Gangster movie.
