It's all about "After Hours", people....

RJG (RJG), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:10 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I love "Goodfellas," but it's kinda flawed. "Mean Streets" redux. The character of Henry is a bit of a cipher, actually. But I love it anyway.

eddie hurt (ddduncan), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:12 (twelve years ago) Permalink

"Goodfellas" is indeed a fucking masterpiece, it's true.

....but it's still all about "After Hours". Stop living in denial.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:12 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Alex, you know, I normally agree with you, except for about the Greenpeace people, but you are so wrong right now.

Watch it again. Ascend from the viscuous mudslick of sickly, abject wrongness you're currently slopping around in like giddy dungbeatles.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:15 (twelve years ago) Permalink

No, Alex, seriously, you're not right here.

ALEX IT IS A BAD SHITTY SILLY MOVIE

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:21 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Well, I'd agree with you if you weren't wrong, Ally.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:22 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I mean, I applaud your civic pride and everything...but man, even Trading Places is better than After Hours.

Actually, Trading Places is great!

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:22 (twelve years ago) Permalink

"Trading Places" is a great, great movie, but it has no place in this debate.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:23 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I just put it there!

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:23 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Do you ever find yourself missing the 1980s, Alex?

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:24 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I doubt it's ever crossed your mind.

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:24 (twelve years ago) Permalink

After Hours is only OK.

Further evidence of your failure to see things clearly.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:24 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I don't think there's any point, in talking about after hours, at this point.

RJG (RJG), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:25 (twelve years ago) Permalink

sorry, I meant I don't think there's any point, at this point.

RJG (RJG), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:26 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Yes, let's ignore history, shall we?

That's what you said, though.

GOODFELLAS IS OUT ON DOUBLE DVD

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:27 (twelve years ago) Permalink

All I'm saying is that "After Hours" is a perfect film, and that you're all eating boxfulls and boxfulls of Twinkies that fell from the Wrong Tree.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:27 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I KNOW , I OWN IT ALREADY.

xpost After Hours is ok but it's not as good as:

Taxi Driver
Raging Bull
GOODFUCKINGFELLAS
etc.

But it is better than Gangs of NY.

Allyzay Science Explosion (allyzay), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:28 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Alex, you are unwittingly eating baby food sprinkled with misguidance.

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:29 (twelve years ago) Permalink

"Gangs of New York" is an ambitious albeit deeply flawed film.

"Taxi Driver" and "Goodfellas" are untouchably sublime films.

"After Hours" is simply my favorite film of all time.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:29 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Sorry for the poor metaphor...but it's really all I'm capable of right now.

"The Breakfast Club" is on AMC right now.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:32 (twelve years ago) Permalink

It has some great Stones tracks on the soundtrack so yes - especially for Sweet Virginia.

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:32 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Casino is good for having Devo on the soundtrack.

"Jump Into the Fire" by Nilsson during the paranoid chopper/coke/pasta scene of "Goodfellas" = brilliance

Never saw "Casino", actually, but now having heard that Devo appears, it will be viewed with all haste.

Well they don't APPEAR, Alex. I mean really you could just put on "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" on and just look at a pic of DeNiro, same difference.

That's amazing. I've read people who think the music in Goodfellas is too much, or that film directors aren't supposed to be DJs; I wonder if there's anyone who'd argue that's a more memorable shot without the music.

Scorsese is definitely my favourite classic rock DJ.

Love this, from the GQ oral history:

During a break, one of the Mob guys in the movie comes to me and he says, “What is this ‘ball-breaker’ thing that you’re saying, the ‘unconscionable?’ ” I said, “You know, in the Caribbean there’s conch shells; you can’t break ‘em.” They all give me like the thumbs-up: “Oh, I get it. ‘Unconscionable!’”

One thing I do reflexively because of Goodfellas: whenever a friend orders a steak medium-rare, I'll say "Ah, an aristocrat." (Not that I'm dining in steakhouses every night--a couple of times a year, most recently two weeks ago.)

My cinephile roommate dragged me to see this about a week after it was released (he'd already seen it on opening day). Watching the "You think I'm funny?" scene in a theater full of people who had no idea what was coming next was absolutely chilling/hilarious.

After the movie, my roommate and I took the train home. Upon walking into our building, we saw that the front glass doors were shattered and covered in blood. The building manager was in the lobby, mopping up blood. He said, "Don't worry about it boys, just some random vandalism. Go on upstairs." In my mind, this is inextricably linked to Goodfellas.
