Yes, that too

That Joe Pesci character was so volatile, I can't see how anyone could trust being in his presence for too long. It's like he'll snap at any moment.

If he didn't have the security of his mob connections, someone would have beat the crap outta him and broke his jaw so his mouth could be wired shut.

I also think Ray Liotto overacted the laughing, but again that was part of his character so maybe not.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Maybe he was laughing more so out of relief.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Oh, and you just gotta love it when Tommy gets his later on after being such a violent asshole to everyone esp. to those who were unarmed and innocent.

Starting with that poor owner who just wanted to settle the tab.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Pesci's character is a despicable little man. Yeah, he's hilarious. But a short guy like that would be dead if he didn't have the mob behind him.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

He thought the mob was which is how they fooled him into his own assassination.

This may be a dumb question but is the mob really as bad and violent as depicted in the movies and TV?
Do they really murder that much or perhaps even more?
Like at the Sopranos level or less than that?

Yes, they are violent and murder but is it ever exaggerated?

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Well I'm not Italian and I know nothing about the mob. Lol. Maybe @Retro Pinky can comment.

She has me on block…

Here is the real Tommy according to Wiki so take that as you want to.

They say he murdered about 5-7 men on the page though I suspect there could have been more.

I'll ask her.

@Retro Pinky, amongst Italians, how common is relation to or knowledge of people in the Mafia as in "Goodfellas"?

I, er, I'm not at liberty to say. uhoh.gif

Actually, on my maternal grandfather's side, there were connections. I have have a very strong, er, suspicions that one of my male cousins is connected. And other things of which I cannot speak. I've said too much already.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Okay, it's kinda like every Greek person is related to someone who owns a charbroiled burger joint.

How is your Mother doing? Healing up nicely, I hope.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Yeah ,but her legs are weak and it’s hard to rebuild the leg strength while the shoulder heals. I’ve been helping her with leg exercises and such 👍

Thx for the well wishes Nzer😊

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Meh, lol

Matthew McConaughey is like a Bruce Willis. I think this scene has potential if another actor played the role lol.

Monster, how should I feel? Creatures lie here, looking through the window.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.





Not exactly a single scene, but Brando's performance in that clip is honestly flawless.















Throughout Heaven and Earth, I alone am the honoured one.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Many acknowledge how good Javier Bardem was in NCfOM. But the service station owner was exceptional too!

“Sir?”

*Sir is not answer! They speak English in Sir?

“Sir?”

Say Sir again. I dare you. I double dare you mother ****er. Say sir one more goddam time.

Hands down one of the top “It’s so bad, that it’s hilariously funny to watch” movies.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

It's a good story and had potential but you know.
A nice try at sci fi.

Though no doubt all the Scumtologists love it!

Spader was hot. No hom'.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

It was hot some guy pissing on his shoes. Just say it. Everything about the dynamics of power between two men. No homo.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

What does Spader do to Nicholson to piss him off originally in Wolf? I tried to find a clip but I’m only getting ones after they’re feuding.

Monster, how should I feel? Creatures lie here, looking through the window.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Spader gets Nicholson demoted from his high end job, and makes sure he takes Jack's place. This is hyper bad because he was Jack's protege. Jack has super senses after being bitten by the wolf and he smells Spader on his wife, so surmises rightly that they're having an affair. Good enough reasons to piss on his shoes, I think.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Does Nicholson hear this with his super-wolf hearing? Is that how he finds out?

Monster, how should I feel? Creatures lie here, looking through the window.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Nope. He hears about it through the regular channels. You should watch the movie so you'll know exactly what's happening from the beginning.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

I would love to have my hair cut like that.

"Asparagus."

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

That's one of my favorites too. Apparently Rutger Hauer ad-libbed that whole speech.

Re: Collection of the best acted scenes of all time.

Actually he didn't ad lib it on the spot.
He re-wrote it first.

Which makes it that much more epic.
