I only recently watched the godfather and i was expecting this amazing movie cos i heard so many good reviews. I watched it and i thought it was pretty tame and boring to be honest. For me Scarface, Goodfellas , casino and carlitos way are soooo much better. Even City of God is better, if you havent seen city of god then you are seriously missing out dudes.
My favorite Pacino movie is "Dog Day Afternoon" but it's not on the list. That has to be one of my all time fav's. The mix of comedy and seriousness is just so classic. Why isn't that on your list?
I was thinking the same thing, his perfomance in Dog Day Afternoon was pretty good.
I had to choose Donnie Brasco. For once he was playing a gangster on the opposite side of the spectrum. A real "down on his luck" type of guy who never really made it to the top. It was a completely different type of character for him and I thought he nailed it.
I definitely hands down had to go with Scarface b/c everything about it from start to finish was the greatest and the whole feel if you watch it now there is alot of influence in all the Grand Theft Auto games that resemble Scarface. And my second choice without a doubt, Heat. That movie was so awesome. One of the greatest robbery movies.
