I read it opens over here on November 27.

Looks like it has a cast to die for---as well as De Niro and Pacino
there's long time Scorsese favorite sideman Joe Pesci,Stephen Graham
(my favorite ever screen Capone and a fellow limey to boot!) Bobby
Cannavale (the psychopathic Gyp Rosetti in "Boardwalk Empire",) the
ever reliable Wolf,Harvey Keitel and of course dear old Silvio himself
Steve Van Zandt

Yep,I can't wait to see it!

Just finished watching it. Fred Parris should receive some nice checks as "In The Still of The Night" is prominently featured a few times.

I watched it yesterday. The soundtrack started off great, with "In The Still Of The Nite," "I Hear You Knockin' " and "The Fat Man" in the first five minutes. But it fizzled out. It certainly was no "Mean Streets" or "Goodfellas." But the movie was terrific.

I think "In The Still Of The Nite" was heard in its entirety in the credits. Did you notice Vito Piccone played a motel manager?

I didn't notice, but I saw it in the credits. RFK was played by Jack Huston, who played Richard the sharpshooter in Boardwalk Empire.

I just watched the conversation with the 3 stars and the director which comes on Netflix right after the movie. They used some new digiital process rather than makeup to make the 3 stars look younger in the flashback scenes.

Joe Pesci steals the show...Particularly at the point where he tells (or orders, rather) DeNiro's character to kill Pacino's character.

In Philadelphia, I heard about him decades ago.....I thought that was everything wrong with the union movement that creepy, corrupt people like him were important people in certain unions in this town. I read parts of his death bed biography, "You Paint Houses, Don't You?", and I fully believe his story on how the union racketeer disappeared without a trace. I have no doubt.

I agree with you 100% about Pesci's performance. Feb. 9 is his
birthday--I know this because it's also my birthday--and I hope they
give him the Oscar for best supporting actor that night.

It's a shame your birthday comes 15 days too early--or else it would
fall on the single most important day in the history of the observable
universe

It's my favorite film of the previous decade. It fully deserved the Golden Globes that the overrated "1917" won instead.

If you want truly horrible CGI, watch "1917."

Well, it really got screwed by the Motion Picture Academy last
night--nominated for 10 awards and didn't win a single one.

Seriously! But at least it lost out to my #2 movie of 2019, PARASITE.

Joyce Meyer should be the next in line to play "Joker". Makeup dept could shave the budget, baby!!@
