Gave Goodfellas 9/10 too
(Original post by jojo72)
I'd say best director to never win an Oscar and going on the past few films he is unlikely to make another film as good as the ones that got away (an example of why the Oscars suck)
I thought it was a good film, well made, well acted - but really only a watch once affair. I think you sum it up when you say it was nothing new or original (even discounting the fact its ACTUALLY not original because of the other film)
On the plus side as well the time really does fly so the 2.5hours doesn't seem it.
7/10 for this.
If you gave this a 9/10 what do you give Goodfellas???? )
I always try to judge a film based on it's own merits, not taking into account films it may or may not be based on, nor the director's previous work. Obviously I will draw comparisons, but I won't let that affect the rating of the movie itself! Not everyone has seen Scorsese's previous stuff, or Infernal Affairs; and I reviewed it as such!
