TMR Zoo Top 10 Greatest Gangster Films
#1
AFI defines the "gangster film" as a genre that centers on organized crime or maverick criminals in a twentieth century setting. If everyone is cool with that, we'll stick with that definition.

I don't know if there's really any rules, we can change that (and the thread title) as needed.

Ok, let's have your picks...

Goodfellas (has to be #1)
2) A Bronx Tale
3) The Godfather
4) Hoodlum
5) The Godfather III
6) The Godfather II (Hey, they were all awesome)

Are you fucking high? You ranked 3 over 2? Andy Garcia was the only good thing to come out of that movie and it still blows. Unbelievable.

3. Goodfellas
4. Pulp Fiction
5. City of God
6. Snatch
7. Reservoir Dogs
8. Casino
9. Once Upon a Time in America

The top three are completely interchangeable at the time of viewing.

Artie Lange summed it up best... The Godfather box set is the perfect DVD collection... you can watch I and II while you're doing coke off of III.

I knew I should have thought about it more before I posted. Damn!!!

Ones I forgot to add:
History of Violence
The Departed
Casino

And I liked Godfather II and III about the same, but I hated Coppola's daughter in III. She was awful.

George Hamilton didn't fucking help either.

Hmm, good point. But, Joe Montanga was very good, and Andy Garcia is awesome in almost everything, as is Pacino.
