Welcome back Goodfellas

I think I should continue with another one of my favorite Movies:
Goodfellas(gangster film)
The only thing that Henry Hill always wanted was to be a gangster. He wanted to be part of something significant. At the age of 15 he got the chance, took it and became one of Paul "Paulie" Cicero Soldiers. There he met his two new best friends, Jimmy "The Gent" Conway and Tommy DeVito. After ten years with the mafia Henry and the others got arrestet. In prison he starts to sell drugs which Paulie accepts as long he is inside but seeing the money Henry doesn't want to stop.

Goodfellas, in my opinion, is better than the Godfather. While Coppola tries to show the "inside" mafia, Scorsese shows the "outside" mafia. He tells the story about a youg boy who wants to be more than just an average person, something everyone wants to be someday in his life. As much as I like the movie, he made a mistake. One small mistake that keeps the movie away from perfection.
The scene which is narrated be his wife. Its just annoying, booring and evertime I see the movie it just don't feel right. So I recommend just skipping the part with the italien woman.

First post, good luck!

The daily interwebs? It sounds strange I know :)
This blog is dedicated to the Intenet. For the strange things I see hear and sometimes smell ;).
I want to talk about movies and music I like and don't like. Enough. I quite dont know how to explain what I want to do but starting right away may seems to be a good Idea.

My first recommendationis one of my favorite Movies:
Snatch(crime film/action/comedy)
The movie is about an small-time boxing promoter named Turkish(after a crashed plane) and his partner Tommy. Turkish is in a bad position. He lost his fighter and therefore can't keep up a deal he made with the gangster boss Brick Top. Oweing something to Brick Top is like a ticket to hell. So Turkish and Tommy try to get out of the mess by switching the fighter with Micky, a gypse who is responsible for the situation both are in, but they learn that gypses are unreliable.

It is hard to talk about the movie without explaining and spoiling to much. Guy Richie shows a beautiful picture about the Londoner criminal underworld and the Charakter are unique and likeable. The movie has a lot of similarities to Richies previous movie "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" which I also recommend for people who like "Snatch".

Rating: 7/10 Its worth a look
