Cardic Cats.....Casino is my favorite movie all time by a pretty decent mark.

Joe Pesci, Robert Deniro...mixed with some mob, gambling, organized crime, murder, in las vegas and to top it off its a true story.....my perfect movie.

When you walk into my house i have a huge 40 inch poster(shown below) framed on the wall....everytime someone new comes over they always say something about it.

anyways, saw reno 911 miami last night.....downloaded the dvd screener and it was so-so, they take it a lil bit too far, even though parts are funny it was almost dumb funny, like they tried too hard.

i'll give it maybe a 5 or 6 out of 10, wasnt feelin it and i like the show.

Amen, brother. When I first heard about Casino, I was stoked to hear Martin was doing another film with Pesci and DeNiro. He certainly didn't disappoint. Even Sharon Stone is amazing in it, and that's not a common occurrance. I have to say, the end scenes with Pesci in the cornfield still gives me chills to this day. Outside of the DeNiro/Pacino thriller Heat, Casino is my favorite crime/drama. Outstanding film. ;-D

Ooooh, good call. Easily one of the most gruesome scenes in the film. :-P

Agreed. That is still one of the most brutal scenes I've ever seen, not necessarily due to the actual violence in it, but the way its carried out.

The Last King of Scotland- Eh, it was okay. I guess I had really high expectations since Whitaker won an Oscar and Golden Globe for this role, but I found the movie kind of "typical" for this type of subject matter. I actually thought the actor that played the doctor was much more compelling and had the tougher role to play. The last 10 minutes are easily the best part of the film . I think the perspective from which the story is told is interesting, but you would probably get more out of a true documentary on Idi Amin. 6/10

Cocaine Cowboys- A documentary about the cocaine wars in Miami during the late 70's, early 80's. It starts off kind cheesy, but definitely picks up. The fact that the Miami we see today was pretty much built with drug money is pretty crazy. The crime scene photos they show are really graphic...men (and women) just full of bullet holes. They also delve into the Medellin Cartel and the Colombians, so if you watch "Entourage", you'll recognize the name. 8/10

Strangely enough, I just watched the Trilogy for the first time, last year. I can't believe it took me so long to see all three, but the 2nd film is argueably the best sequel in cinema history.
