Go home, get your Shinebox: Goodfellas

I could have picked perhaps any scene in this movie, and it would have been a classic. And I may just put more scenes up later, but this is one of the best from the movie, Goodfellas (1990).

If this is a movie you haven't seen, it is a movie you must see, especially if you like Gangster movies. Based on the non-fiction book Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi, and directed by the great Martin Scorsese, Goodfellas follows the story of Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), and his fellow wiseguy colleagues, Jimmy "The Gent" Conway (Robert De Niro) and Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci) during their rise and fall in organized crime, spanning three decades.

In this scene, quick tempered Tommy is rattled by another gangster Billy Batts (Frank Vincent), and things quickly turn violent.






Martin Scorsese is on top form when directing this movie, and this is without a doubt a classic. I challenge anyone to not enjoy this movie. The main cast preform fantastically, Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci all being at the very top of their game. This movie is truly one of the greatest gangster films ever made.
