American Gangster

Just got back from seeing this tonight, was incredibly high through the whole thing. Was a pretty good movie, it sort of dragged on. But a rather good film, good story line, loved the actors they used in it.

 

Anyone else see it?

I watched the first hour and a half online.....Seeing as it leaked 2 weeks before release, and the quality was F'ing incredible. I'm DL'ing as I type.

 

P.S. How dare you watch a Denzel Washington movie high!!!

I just saw it. The theatre was empty when I got there and 30 mins later(30 mins before the movie started) it was packed... so I got a sucker seat in the front aisles.

 

I liked it a lot, nothing new but it was a solid gangster movie. Acting was definitely good and the big shootout was really visceral. I thought the movie didn't wrap up that well but it is based on reality so that limits what can be done(also, I wanted to get out of there because my neck and eyes hurt from staring straight up at the screen ). It was long too, I had no problem with that though because I like long films.

I think I'll pass on this until the DVD release. Just don't see myself sitting in a theater for almost 2 and a half hours unless it's a movie I truly want to see.

I'm going to see this tonight, looks pretty good. It was an easy decision to see this instead of Saw IV, plus Denzel is the sh*t.

'Acquired' it. Watched the first 15-30mins with a friend then we stopped 'cause it didn't really hold our interest. I'm still gonna watch it though once I just get around to it.

Well the finnoch response wasn't needed...your topic is from early September, page 3 of this forum, and marketing for this movie only just started a short while ago. There has to be some sorta cut-off, eh?

 

Anyway, about the movie. Looks solid I guess, could do without the crap song in the TV spots, but other than that, looks alright. Is it like Training Day? How's the soundtrack? Dialogue? Story?

 

EDIT: Forgot about this funny story I read from Crowe. Apparently when he was working with Denzel on Virtuosity, on the set, he accidentally spit on him, but Denzel was cool about it, and they both finished the scene, and then he just wiped it off without getting pissed.

The movie is awesome. I like the part when he kill that guy in the middle of the street in cold blood.

Eh, I'll wait for the DVD. I wouldn't sit through 2 and a half hours unless I wanted to see it, like Groovy. Also, people in theaters are annoying as all hell.

 

Also, why the f*ck can't people just say that they saw a movie? Does it make you cooler to say you "downloaded it", "acquired it" or "watched it on the net"? Does it make your e-dick bigger? sh*t.

Hey what's wrong with "acquired it"? I think that's a non-arrogant, non-boastful phrase, the others are annoying, but saying you've acquired something is just...trying not to brag, yet at the same time letting the person you're talking know you've dl'd it. I say that with my friends all the time, I don't see the big deal.

 

Anyway, it's probably a real good movie, so I'll catch it on HBO or Encore in a year or so. I also don't waste time with the movies unless it's an epic flick that requires a big screen, liek Spidey 3, Transformers, etc. Speaking of which, Groovy: I read your message at the Megadeth Bitch Boards about tripping some kid who was running around the theater...win.

I too found that hilarious, seeing as that dude was a major prick at Bumpy's funeral, but I found it more farfetched. I know Frank has clout, but goddamn, that is some wreckless ass behavior. I didn't buy it or enjoy it all that much, especially since he did it in front of his brothers....

Haha, that part scared the sh*t out of the entire theater. Also the part where he gives that cop a chicken is pretty funny as well.

Looks like American Gangster topped the box office this weekend, it took in a little over 46 million, which suprises the f*ck out of me, given how long the movie is.

 

Talked to some friends who saw it, they said it was quite good, so I might end up seeing it this weekend.

Does King Kong ring any bells?

That song in the trailer is Heart of the City (Ain't No Love) by Jay-Z.

 

I saw American Gangster today and I loved it! It's a f*cking great movie! It's kinda like Blow. Both Denzel and Russell Crowe did an extremely good job. icon14.gif This movie was both interesting and entertaining. I would recommend it to people who like gangster movies.

 

Did anybody get the Godfather reference? In one part, Frank says to his little brother, "If you weren't my little brother, I'd blow your f*cking brains out!" You remember that part in the Godfather? Sweet!

This movie was sweet but i think they're more interesting violent NY drug lords from the 70s,80s and 90s than Frank. I mean I think Nicky Barnes would've been better with his flamboyant attitude also The Supreme Team for their violence but this is by far 1 of the best gangster films of the past few years.

Whoa, 46 million, pretty substantial coin for an opening weekend.

 

And film length really doesn't play a part in how much it grosses, a good movie is a good movie.

I watched it recently. It was OK.

 

I dunno. As far a true stories go, GoodFellas was a much better movie. The movie really dragged during some points but the overall story was quite interesting. Honestly, Denzel Washington's acting was the only thing that saved the movie. Still, it's the best crime drama I've watched in theaters since The Departed.
