"Saw Goodfellas for the first time last night (late pass post)"


  

          

Good flick. A bit dated, but still very well done. Didn't realize all the folks who were in it but can see how influential it was for everything that came after. Makes a difference seeing Pesci as Tommy before as a bumbling burglar in Home Alone, even though both movies came out two months apart!

What have you FINALLY gotten around to seeing that every other member of the human race already has?

>What have you FINALLY gotten around to seeing that every other
>member of the human race already has?

i wouldn't put these at the level of Goodfellas, but for me recently it was:

-Boyhood - this moved at a much faster pace than i expected; i may have watched sooner if i'd known it wouldn't feel like nearly 3 hours and was funny

-A Serious Man - i used to keep up with dem coen boys, but for some reason this one didn't appeal much to me when it came out. i think i benefited from having the 10 extra years of life experience to appreciate what it was saying, and watching it reminded me how much i enjoy their filmmaking.

-Flight of the Conchords Season 2 - i watched the first season long ago and lost track of finishing up the series until recently. it was still funny.

-The Fall - one of the earliest netflix "original" series that was really just a license and is now off this service but on others. i <3 gillian anderson on the x-files and appreciated her in other roles since that original run, but it's another i just lost track of until i made myself watch. i found the first series to be just ok, but it got much better to me in the second and was still good in the last. she was great in it, jamie dornan was, too, and the show really got under my skin. i'm good on another intimate psychological profile of a serial killer for a long time, thanks.

The Fall was pretty good but some of the unrealistic stuff drove me crazy.

"I DON'T WANT SANTANA ABRAXAS I'VE JUST BEEN IN A SERIOUS ACCIDENT!"

I don't know why but that line had me laughing. I just love the randomness in Coen Brothers movies.

That's one of the great things about re-watching Coen Brothers movies. Even with the dramatic ones, they throw in little random details that you know are only there because they thought it was funny.

Zombieland was really, really good. Funny as hell

The Office had some really good seasons...and some not so good ones. Tried to start Parks and Rec but I think I'm good.

I think you could watch the second half of 1 because it does start getting a bit better.

Seasons 2-4 are some of the best television and I would watch before anything seasons of the Office

reboot. They changed Amy Poehler's character from an awkward Michael Scott type loser to a Tracy Flix overachiever it became a much better show.

And I only watched it after I'd watched the rest of the series. And only then because I kept on hearing how the show came together starting with that finale. And, compared to the other seasons, it's still kinda lame.

But yeah, I jumped in with Season 2 no problem.

Like they tried to keep it grounded and subtle. Some would say boring.

From Season 2, they said fuck it and really put their foot on the gas.

in every conceivable way


even more than I'd already known/expected

I tried to watch godfather once before, on vhs, in my dorm room, on a 13-inch vhs/tv combo and I fell asleep ten minutes in.

they're both really great movies and their influence is clear, I don't think I'd watch them again though

Part II was in theaters a few weeks ago and I went and checked it out (first time seeing it on the big screen) and I forgot the influence it's had. I think now I put II ahead of I slightly.

I get what you mean about not seeing them again..dont have to watch good shit over and over to acknowledge that it was good shit.

...married, because I didn't want to marry anyone who hadn't seen the Godfather (or Goodfellas, which we'd watched a few months before).

Got her to watch Godfather 2 not too long after the wedding. She prefers that.

All three of those films I can watch anytime, anyplace, from any point, and never get sick of them.
