Not usually my cup of tea, but 'Goodfellas' was surprisingly entertaining. The 1990 gangster film directed by Martin Scorsese started off slowly and similar to every other gangster film ever shot, ever. But as the story and characters develop, the film became something brilliant. The story was superbly told, and its easy to see why the film is famous for its camerawork. Most noticeably, the corridor/back entrance one-shots looked stunning.
Definitely worth checking out.

Yes i know its juvenile and outdated, but that's why i love it. Once i got past the overwhelmingly face-meltingy nostalgia, i could actually concentrate on trying to criticize the film. This was surprisingly difficult. I couldn't criticize the voice acting, because it was brilliant, I couldn't criticize the story, because it was astoundingly absorbing. I couldn't even criticize the animation, because it looked fantastic. Perhaps even, super effective. *bad pun grin*
I miss being part of the demographic this was made for. Those few years were so much better than now. But for an hour and a half, i got to relive those precious years.
Rating: 9.5/10 (still a little nostalgia blinded)
