Mobster movies and TV shows

I've always been a fan of the mafioso genre.

Godfather, Godfather 2, Scarface, The Sopranos, Casino, Goodfellas, The Untouchables.

"Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!"

"It was you, Fredo! You broke my heart!"

"Don't ever go against the family."

"Don't ever ask me about my business."

"I'll make him an offer, he can't refuse."

"I understand. You found paradise in America. You had a good trade, you made a good living. The police protected you and there were courts of law. So you didn't need a friend like me. Now you come and say "Don Corleone, give me justice." But you don't ask with respect. You don't offer friendship. You don't even think to call me "Godfather." You come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married and you ask me to do murder - for money."

"There are many things my father taught me here in this room. He taught me: keep your friends close, but your enemies closer."

"This is the business we've chosen."

"I'd give four million just to be able to take a piss without it hurting."

"I'm going to take a nap. When I wake up, if the money is on the table, I'll know I have a partner. If it isn't, I'll know I don't."

"Do me this favor. I won't forget it. Ask your friends in the neighborhood about me. They'll tell you I know how to return a favor."

"What are you prepared to do, Mr. Ness?"
"I am prepared to do everything within the letter of the law."
"And then what are you prepared to do?"

"Luca Brassi sleeps with the fishes."

"In Sicily, women are more dangerous than shotguns."

"Bene, Don Corleone. I need a man who has powerful friends. I need a million dollars in cash. I need, Don Corleone, all of those politicians that you carry around in your pocket, like so many nickels and dimes."

"Take the gun, leave the cannoli."

"Why don't you find yourself a nice girl and settle down, eh?"
"Sure, mom, I settle down with a nice girl every night, then I'm free the next morning!"

"I'm funny? Funny how? Like a clown? Do I make you laugh?"

"Go home and get your fucking shine box!"

"I'm gonna go get the papers, get the papers."

"What am I? A schmuck on wheels?"

"A man becomes preeminent, he's expected to have enthusiasms. Enthusiasms, enthusiasms... What are mine? What draws my admiration? What is that which gives me joy? Baseball! A man stands alone at the plate. This is the time for what? For individual achievement. There he stands alone. But in the field, what? Part of a team. Teamwork... Looks, throws, catches, hustles. Part of one big team. Bats himself the live-long day, Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, and so on. If his team don't field... what is he? You follow me? No one. Sunny day, the stands are full of fans. What does he have to say? I'm goin' out there for myself. But... I get nowhere unless the team wins."

"You heard about the Chinese Godfather? He made them an offer they couldn't understand!"

"Word is they're gonna repeal prohibition. What'll you do then?"
"I think I'll have a drink!"

"Welcome to Chicago. This town stinks like a whorehouse at low tide."

This is a thread to honor the great genre.

Brick Top in Snatch is one hell of a gangster. Good old fashioned British psychotic murdering gangster.

Of course the parodies are hilarious as well.

Re: Mobster movies and TV shows

The scene where the geeky one gets whacked in the elevator is quite emotional. That was a great change of pace from the directors.

Re: Mobster movies and TV shows

Roadmap, I see The Untouchables was your fave?

I especially liked the scene where De Niro whacks the guy w/ the baseball bat after the "enthusiasms" speech.

One of the better performances of all time, really.

That was a brilliant and brutally shocking scene.

Re: Mobster movies and TV shows

It is funny as fuck when Connery and Garcia are throwing racist insults at each other.

You haven't seen Godfather 1 or 2? Or Goodfellas?

Re: Mobster movies and TV shows

I've not seen that movie, nor have I heard of it, really.

But Godfather 1 and 2 and Goodfellas are absolute classics of the genre, mate.

Equal, if not better than The Untouchables. Godfather 1 and 2 are like Laver and Rosewall, setting the standard. Goodfellas and the Untouchables are like Agassi and Sampras, metaphoricaly.
