Movie #77 - Goodfellas

Henry Hill: [narrating] And when the cops, when they assigned a whole army to stop Jimmy, what'd he do? He made 'em partners.

Day #75

Martin Scorsese presents a rock and roll gangster epic in the most authentic manner you can think of.

As usual, this mob masterpiece features Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, even Samuel L. Jackson and a mean looking (as always) Ray Liotta who all performed admirably, especially Joe Pesci who steals the show -- winning himself an Academy Award in the process.

Its direction's masterful, brutal, fast and captivating.

This 1990 hit is a really fascinating piece of cinematic history.
