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.


  1. This is such a good movie, I just loved it when it came out. I do agree that Goodfellas is better than the godfather as well!

  2. Loved it the first time I saw it, Not my favourite movie but its pretty good!

  3. I do like the godfather just a bit more than goodfellas, but it is still a legendary film that I watch pretty often.

  4. I liked it more than the godfather. I couldn't stand that movie.

  5. im a just a bit more of a fan of the godfather but this movie is epic in its own way

  6. Oh my god, this movie is a classic, a pure classic.

    I'm not tired of watching it again & again.
