    Thanks - that's really more what I'm looking for, things based on real life organized crime. I should probably finish Narcos, I never gave S3 a shot.

    Irishman definitely whetted my appetite for more, though.

    PS vaguely related but Boondock Saints was such garbage I wish I knew why everyone talked about it like it was the 2nd coming. ****ing reddit. Out of all of those 90s movies that tried to rip off Tarantino I'd say it was the worst by far.

    not a movie but have you ever watched THe sopranos. I’m assuming yes, but if not, if you are really into the mafia stuff you’ll be hooked on this within the first 15 minutes

    This was good. As a local 25 teamster of 23 years. I wish Hoffa Jr was like his father. As good as Hoffa sr was being president of the Union. Jr is the worst.

    I see The Sopranos has been mentioned.

    Boardwalk Empire was also awesome

    Saw it last night. The acting is superb with De Niro, Pesci, and Pacino in the starring roles. The technology to de-age all these actors was great and completely believable unlike the Star Wars movie a few years ago.

    It’s not in the league of Raging Bull, Goodfellas, or Casino, and he could have trimmed a bit of the fat and got it below 3 hrs, but it is a hell of a movie, and likely the last time we’ll see these 3 actors in something this epic again.

    8/10

    Ahead of Casino? For me Casino is better than Goodfellas, and only behind Godfather 1&2 as the best mafia movie

    It was not without it's moments. Good but just a bit uneven to be great. I love Pesci but his acting chops haven't aged as well as De Niro's or Pacino's, who can still really bring it, and for some reason that makes me sadder than it should. Having lived through those times it certainly seems like they underplayed Joey Gallo & Tony Pro a bit and that's not just because I think very highly of the very underrated Stephen Graham, although I do. Speaking of him, definitely a big recommend Boardwalk Empire. Graham and Cannavale along with Shea Whigham really stand out in it, which is saying a lot considering how brilliant pretty much the entire cast is. BE is in my personal top 10 shows.

    @fnordcircle for your list I'd def recommend American Gangster, Road To Perdition and if you like older films The Roaring Twenties and White Heat are outstanding. Period TV doesn't get any better than Boardwalk Empire. Everything about it just works and you are doing yourself a disservice if you haven't made the time to watch it. Great binge watch btw.

    Boardwalk Empire disappointed me overall. Buscemi ruined it, as much as I love him he felt more like a mildly inconvenienced middle manager than a crime lord.

    I don't know if I could disagree with your assessment of Pesci more. There was an immediate sense of power behind him. He used quiet so well to convey the sense that this was someone who was in control and not to be ****ed with. Actually exactly what I would have liked to seen out of Buscemi's Nucky.

    I dunno man, I'm pretty disappointed in you rn. We should stop talking.

    I think Casino would be a decent comparison. I don't see Goodfellas as a comparison.

    I agree. I thought Pesci was the best of them, and that’s saying a lot when the other leads were De Niro and Pacino!
