lots of hammy acting

nobody but old boomers care about the workings and machinations of the mafia because we didn't have to go to mob-owned clubs in the 70s and 80s to avoid having a 'mixed' crowd.

>>Overuse of colour makes it look like a cartoon
Mob movies are cartoons. Its over the top caricatures are taken straight from cartoons. You see this in everything related to mafia. Sopranos, Goodfellas, Godfather.
Its an old jewish trick being pulled right in front of your eyes but you are too razzle dazzled to notice.

I'm so happy to see this thread.

Casino is trash. I can't believe there's people on this board who actually try and push the idea that Casino is even in the same conversation as Goodfellas.

If Casino existed in a vaccum - DeNiro and Pesci didn't have the reputation they did after Goodfellas, and Scorsese too - this would be a Razzy tier film. You're meant to just pretend that these aren't laughably written characters just because the cast has done good gangster shit in the past.

The relationship stuff is awful. It's a totally wasted setting.

You're right about 90 percent of the content but there are definitely exceptions.

The Godfather (I and II), Goodfellas and The Sopranos are all quality productions and lend themselves closer to fact than fiction. That's because they put an emphasis on character interaction instead of g-g-g-gangster shit.

The Sopranos and The Godfather are about family life. Goodfellas is about masculinity and manhood. All the crime stuff comes second.

Pretty much everything else is bad.

>>99807404
Hahahahahaha imagine thinking this

Stop

Goodfellas has a score rivalled by next to nothing. Acting is top shelf and the writing is TIGHT. Performances are fucking excellent and it flies in and out of convention perfectly.

Offer me some negatives about Goodfellas that don't just insult the audience instead of the film. I'd love to hear them.
>>
>>99807443
Now I'm starting to think I'm wasting my time with you

Goodfellas score is exceptional
The majority of the characters are complex, especially Henry
The narration is probably one of the best in all of cinema history, especially the way Henry and Karen are intertwined together, it's stunning

Should I rewatch Casino? was kinda bored with it and then everyone got killed yeeee, but I found the narrative weak, just like the Godfather. It seems like both movie just could be a lot better if a better filmmaker shot it, both movies feel like they could lose about 30minutes of dead weight.

You have it backwards. His character in Goodfellas was supposed to be huge. He was better cast as Tony "The Ant" Spilotro.

Not so much the writing but the execution is what's funny.

>>99808691
no, Goodfellas is better because it shows Henry go from a little boy to a violent, indefensible criminal. Casino while aslo great starts with all the main characters being middle aged thus fully formed and cynical already

This is what I though at first, but the plot is 100% different. Goodfellas is about an average dude trying to come up through the mob world. Casino is the story of a smart and driven guy being pulled down by idiots.
>Stupid recasting of Pesci and De Niro
Both of them yes, but either one or the other would have been alright.

No. It pretty much did as good of a job as goodfellas in recreating an environment
>>Pesci fucking Stone is one of the unintentionally funny scenes evar
Yes. I'm supposed to believe a chick that hot would want to mount up on pesci?
But it was more of her personality to fuck around with deniro with his friend.

It's a good film. It's not one of the greatest films of all time like Goodfellas though. Niro, Pesci, Stone and Woods were great, Scorsese tries something different stylistic wise which makes sense because it's Vegas but it's not perfect like Goodfellas is. You can tell what's going to happen, parodical at times especially when it comes to some of the violence,editing and choices of music. But yeah, just because it's not Goodfellas doesn't mean it's not a good film, I enjoyed watching it.

I personally think Casino is superior to Goodfellas. Those two movies have a lot in common, but I don't see that as a problem.

>Plot is boring
The mafia invests in Las Vegas, the history of Las Vegas, etc, none of that is boring.

>Sharon Stone cannot act
On the contrary, she was brilliant in this movie.

>Overuse of colour makes it look like a cartoon
I think you're missing the point of it being Las Vegas. Las Vegas is larger than life, or was, at any rate, and that's great way to convey that.
>Pesci fucking Stone is one of the unintentionally funny scenes evar
That's fully on you. You're emotionally retarded if you don't get the despair in that scene. It's one of the saddest things in the film.

Kino.

This, 100% true.

I've said it before but this movie suffered from following history too closely. Nobody gives a shit about sharon stone's character or her affair with pesci and her plotline was pointless. In the end the mob gets busted over the feds finding the logbook and pesci gets whacked over being a loose cannon. There should've been more focus on the criminal activies and characters like Frank Vincent, instead we got a relationship drama inserted into a crime movie.

IRL, I find No Country For Old Men to be an effective pleb filter. They can't even appreciate the gas station scene, because they're somehow too stupid to understand the subtext (yes, I work with tards... enlisted military).

Local small time mafia often own bars today though. It's not like they're selling crack out of them, but they make a good chunk of thier money on this legit business, and much of it is cash so they can launder money in them.

It's alright.

A classic example of a soulless glib facsimile.

It is a shame that Goodfellas exists, because without it, this would be known as one of the greatest mob films ever made. A cinematic epic. Scorcese's refining of the formula. But unfortunately, its similarities to Goodfellas in cast, plot, and themes have dampened its status significantly.
The amount of hate I'm seeing here is shocking. I knew this board had shit taste, but I didn't know their taste was THAT shit.

Dumbest shit I've read here in a long time.

It has some goodfellas tier montages. Pesci's crew robbing everybody, the bosses back home, the money room, pesci's crew messing with the feds. It's essentially a hangout movie in the style of Goodfellas, as opposed to just simply a rollercoaster like GF
>>
Also, the scene with DeNiro and Pesci making peace in the garage with Fleetwood Mac playing is one of the best things Scorsese's done
>>
>>99810194
It's humorous, with good suspense towards the purpose of the plane, and overall atmosphere
