Goodfellas (1990)

Goodfellas Quote: “Never rat on your friends and always keep your mouth shut.” – Jimmy Conway

“Goodfellas” changed the game when it came to mob movies, taking us from the fantasy of mafia bosses to the much more mundane lives of foot soldiers. It showed how a man and a woman could be seduced by a criminal lifestyle. And it put Martin Scorsese’s cinematic magic on full display.

In this episode, the Shat Crew reveal their favorite scenes from the 1990 biopic and debate when exactly Henry Hill’s life went from glamour to garbage. Also up for discussion are Robert De Niro’s performance, when a rat isn’t a rat, and whether the film’s ending was rushed.

And finally, we answer the question on everyone’s mind: Is this movie better than “The Godfather: Part II?”

Plot Summary: “Goodfellas” A young man grows up in the mob and works very hard to advance himself through the ranks. He enjoys his life of money and luxury but is oblivious to the horror that he causes. A drug addiction and a few mistakes ultimately unravel his climb to the top. Based on the book “Wiseguy” by Nicholas Pileggi.
