i watched scarface for the first time last night. i have no idea why i haven't seen it before. pachino is great in it of course but other than that there is some really bad acting in it but i guess that is to be expected from a movie so old. decent movie.
When Scarface was first released, everyone at my job were big coke heads (partly because we worked the graveyard shift) and this instantly became everyone's favorite movie. I can't say how quickly the oft-repeated "Say hello to my little friend" quote grew to nails-on-chalkboard annoying.
That's another film I've never seen....In fact, here are a few more random ones I've never seen but I keep getting told are good.

Forrest Gump
The Matrix
Any of the Bourne films
Stand By Me

Forrest Gump
I saw Forrest Gump at the movie theatre when it came out and hated it! From what I recall,Forrest is a really lucky, mentally challenged, naive and inncocent man who goes through life experiencing incredible moments in American history. Maybe it was supposed to be like a fairy tale about the American Dream:conform, stick with the rules, don't rock the boat and you'll be a huge success. :noclue: It was a feel-good movie full of nostalgia for the baby boomers. Just thinking about it now makes me angry :mad: :lol: On the positive side, excellent soundtrack and good techincal qualities.

I’m not sure it’s aged well, though. It was breathtaking when it came out, but since then Bandit has probably seen all the movie’s new tropes being played out elsewhere, as well as dozens of satirical takes on the movie.

From that list, I’d go with Forest Gump or the Matrix. Forest Gump has its moments if the story manages to grab
you. I only enjoyed it on my 3rd attempt at watching it.

Over the weekend, I saw the movie Midsommar by Ari Aster- loved it! It has a strong Wicker Man vibe.
The reviews have been mixed. I think because this is not a typical horror movie. I thought it was really well done; I left feeling a little unsettled and disturbed. :lol:
The director is the guy who did Hereditary which I haven't seen.
