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

Alex...it is so NOT all about After Hours.

RJG (RJG), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:10 (sixteen years ago) link

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 (sixteen years ago) link

"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 (sixteen years ago) link

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

Allyzay Science Explosion (allyzay), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:14 (sixteen years ago) link

Stop living in denial.

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

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

Allyzay Science Explosion (allyzay), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:20 (sixteen years ago) link

ALEX IT IS A BAD SHITTY SILLY MOVIE

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:21 (sixteen years ago) link

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

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

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 (sixteen years ago) link

"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 (sixteen years ago) link

I just put it there!

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:23 (sixteen years ago) link

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

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:24 (sixteen years ago) link

I doubt it's ever crossed your mind.

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:24 (sixteen years ago) link

After Hours is only OK.

Allyzay Science Explosion (allyzay), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:24 (sixteen years ago) link

Further evidence of your failure to see things clearly.

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

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

RJG (RJG), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:25 (sixteen years ago) link

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

RJG (RJG), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:26 (sixteen years ago) link

Yes, let's ignore history, shall we?

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:26 (sixteen years ago) link

That's what you said, though.

GOODFELLAS IS OUT ON DOUBLE DVD

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:27 (sixteen years ago) link

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 (sixteen years ago) link

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 (sixteen years ago) link

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

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:29 (sixteen years ago) link

"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 (sixteen years ago) link

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

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:30 (sixteen years ago) link

Casino, anyone?

Monetizing Eyeballs (diamond), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:31 (sixteen years ago) link

"The Breakfast Club" is on AMC right now.

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

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

adam. (nordicskilla), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:32 (sixteen years ago) link

Casino is good for having Devo on the soundtrack.

Allyzay Science Explosion (allyzay), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:33 (sixteen years ago) link

Monetizing Eyeballs (diamond), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:33 (sixteen years ago) link

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

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Thursday, 19 August 2004 02:33 (sixteen years ago) link

Casino rules!

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.

Man I love how Tommy’s stories (which you can barely get a handle on because we jump into them halfway through and everyone is cracking up) are basically stories about him getting the shit kicked out of him, or him torturing someone. And I love that they’re done in an old school hack comedian delivery style. Pesci is actually at this point maybe extremely underrated in this role, he’s incredible.

Also love the moment when Jimmy tells Henry, “forget about tonight” re: Morrie, which feels like an easy narrative trick to deceive the audience, but the actual murder that follows is telegraphed so much that it comes off more like Jimmy thinking Henry doesn’t have the stomach for it, and maybe doesn’t 100% trust him because of that. Not ready to whack him yet, but hedging his bets on what he allows him to witness.

DeNiro saying “hoof” is still A+

omar little, Tuesday, 19 June 2018 23:38 (two years ago) link

I've thought about the "forget about tonight" moment several times, and I thought Jimmy was genuinely gonna offer Morrie an amnesty -- until Morrie started busting his balls in the alley hours later.

I've posted a couple of these movie-music Zooms I've been doing with a friend (we're getting close to 50, but I've tried to post sparingly). The first half of this one, and then the last 10 minutes, is on Goodfellas and Scorsese; there's 10 or 15 minutes on Jonathan Kaplan's Heart Like a Wheel in the middle.

Links are preferable to embeds anyway IMO.

It's probably endlessly repeated but on the Talking Sopranos podcast Michael Imperioli was telling the story of how he was taken to the emergency room for a cut on his hand when filming the scene where Spider gets killed and the staff called "code blue" and were cutting his suit open to treat gunshot sounds.
