You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens.

This one is a thinker. Really tough call.

Same here.  I'm torn.

Should Vader take his light saber to Joe Pesci's hand?  Or, should Frank Vincent to tell Luke to go get his fucking shine box?  I can't decide just yet.

i guess when it comes down to it, Empire is a more important movie in my life.

Raging Bull and Taxi Driver i'd pick over it without a thought. but somehow Goodfellas, great as it is, just seems a little more, i don't know...frivolous, somehow. which is probably the wrong word.

hell. guess i'd better go get my fuckin' shinebox.

frivolous?
agree it's the wrong word

especially is that it's based on a true story. I was living in Brooklyn when some of those bodies were found in Howard Beach. I remember the Brinks job - they caught some of those guys, who wound up in the prison ward at the hospital I was at. Police presence went up about 10 times when they showed up. Took them back to Rikers in a 10 car convoy at midnight. seeing the movie was pretty cool - answered some questions.

without all that, it was a great movie.

emay

One of the, if not the greatest, sci fi movie that changed movie production and model making got beat by a movie made about the biggest snitch on the east coast?!
Really!?
