Martin Scorsese explores the life of organized crime with his gritty, kinetic adaptation of Nicolas Pileggi's best-selling Wiseguy, the true-life account of mobster and FBI informant Henry Hill. Set to a true-to-period rock soundtrack, the story details the rise and fall of Hill, a half-Irish, half-Sicilian New York kid who grows up idolizing the "wise guys" in his impoverished Brooklyn neighborhood. This movie was just fantastic with no words to say. The directing and the acting was excellent.

Great movie Great Actors , awsome scenes , the only real problem i have noticed ..is not actually about the movie but more on the basic substence by that a mean that the underline of the movie protrais Ray Liotta caracter almost has a okay guy and he almost does not do anything at all ...like come on ! 25 years in the mafia and the guy never robbed someone ,killed ,beat to a pulp , and more ..anyways im off topic ... great movie loved it (still do) sometimes watch it 2 times back to back .. thanks ..

Scorsese crafts a rise to power story with his signature combination of brutality, wit, and tragic drama. The way the swarmy rise of Ray Liotta's Henry Hill switches from glamour to paranoia is intriguing to watch and Scorsese pulls off the transition through the years of the gangster's life with ease. The talented cast (including staples of the genre - De Niro & Pesci) shines, particularly Pesci who uses his pint-sized anger to full effect as a bratty mobster heir.

"To be a gangster was to own the world."

"As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster."

So says Henry Hill in the opening moments of Martin Scorsese’s “GoodFellas,” a movie about the tradecraft and culture of organized crime in New York. That he narrates his own story--and is later joined by his wife, narrating hers--is crucial to the movie’s success. This is not an outsider’s view, but a point-of-view movie based on nostalgia for the lifestyle. “

At the end of the film, Henry (Ray Liotta) still misses the old days. His money is gone, most of his friends are dead, and his best friend was preparing to kill him, but after he finds safety in the federal witness protection program, he still complains. “We were treated like movie stars with muscle,” he remembers. “Today, everything is different. There’s no ...

Gangster flair.

I think Goodfellas is a little better than the Godfather... Don't hate me.

The reason I made that remark above is because they are two very similar movies. They are mobster mafia movies and both have the same structure and character change. There are only a few things that can definitely tell them apart, like the narration and comedic undertones of Goodfellas and the solidity of the main character in the Godfather.
Don't get me wrong, I adore the Godfather and think it is a spectacular mafia movie, but Goodfellas is just a little bit ahead of it, in my opinion.
Goodfellas just has so much more replay value. I could sit down now and watch it, which is something I would have to think about with the Godfather.
Martin Scorsese's fresh direction and way of storytelling add a lot of heart...

"Goodfellas" by Yojimbo

Career criminal Henry Hill reminisces upon his life of crime in this true life story based on an actual FBI case. Goodfellas is the perfect film. It has the perfect blend of drama, gritty violence and humour as we see the dark side of the American dream played out over 25 years of a wise guy's life. The people depicted here do not play by society's rules and have their own set of laws and conventions revolving around the pure pursuit of profit in this, the logical conclusion of capitalism. The livelihoods and lives of others are commodities to be used up and tossed away and life is cheap to these mobsters whose stated obsession with loyalty and family is also soon forgotten for the "big score", leading to total anarchy. The combination of DeNiro, Liotta and Pesci makes for a brilliant tri...
