Okay this is how it goes. You give the name of the movie name and rate the movie someone said by 1-5 stars. (Mafia Movies Only)

 

 

Name: GoodFellas

Witness to the Mob: I'd give this one about a 4/5

 

It was an NBC TV Movie done during the mid-90's telling the tale of Sammy "The Bull" Gravano and how he became inducted into the Gambino family during the late 70's/early 80's. Along with how he met John Gotti and the two plotting together in killing Big Paul Castellano which resulted in the hostile take-over of the Gambino family and soon began it's downfall. Not only to the largest and most powerful family at the time but also the American Mafia in general. I think what I loved most about it though is it shows what a true piece of sh*t John Gotti was and how his actions were mostly manipulated by those around him... one who claimed himself to be the boss of bosses (when in reality it was Carlo Gambino) was short sighted and self-obsessed.

 

Probably one of the better Mafia movies out there. It's not as cliche as Goodfellas or the Godfather. One thing very neat about Witness to the Mob is how much of it is fact based. I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Mafia Movies and or has an actual understanding for La Cosa Nostra.

 

 

Full movie on Youtube:

Witness to the Mob has one of the most godawful acting jobs I've ever seen - I'm talking about Nicholas Turturro. whatsthat.gifbarf8bd.gifbarf8bd.gifbarf8bd.gif

 

The Untouchables was awesome: 3.5/5

 

Witness to the Mob was unwatchable thanks to Nicholas Turturro: 1.5/5

 

 

The Godfather Part III

3.5/5

 

It's a great film in its own right, however when compared to other mob films it doesn't hold a candle.

 

Name: The Departed (does it count?)

Most definitely. The Irish mob is no exception especially being a Scorsese masterpiece.

 

4.5/5

What? The Godfather broke the cliches. Also, you're probably mixing it up with every other film that took something from it and made them cliched. Not the other way around.

 

How is Goodfellas cliched? I'd just like to know.

Probably my favourite Coen Brothers film. Turturro's superb in it. 4/5

 

Anyone ever seen Election? It's a Hongkongese production about a Triad clan. Was really surprised by it.

I thought it was good. Not great. I'm a history guy though so I knew how it was gonna end. The acting was good though.

3/5

What about Road to Perdition? Is this worth watching? I have the DVD, I just haven't gotten around to watching it

Anyone a fan of Carlito's Way? I watched it for the first time recently and loved it, the final scene in Grand Central station is great.

 

Gangster/crime films are my favourite. The Godfather, Casino, Goodfellas and The Departed are amongst my all time favourites. I also love A Bronx Tale, that's a must watch for any mafia movie lover.
