...ive already seen some scenes ive never seen before i like it.
As far as I know, all the deleted scenes are extras on Blu-ray, but they take on new meaning when edited into the whole. I still prefer the original movies, but the epic is pretty good in its own right.
I'm dvr'ing it right now
5pm to midnight
I've seen it this past weekend . Loved it.
Hard to watch it straight through.
What are you talking about ?? I've moved out off my couch only to take a piss .
I could do it again if I have the time .
If you want the full experience, wear a diaper like Richard Christy. No interruptions necessary.
It's long, but it's awesome.
I never knew about the scene where Michael is giving Kay a dirty Sanchez while getting a rusty trombone. It was just seconds before the house gets shot up. I hope I didn't spoil anything for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.
I came across it and been watching it for the last hour.... Never saw any one from start to finish
The time is the hard part. If you have kids and a wife, 7 straight hours watching a movie is hard to come by.
Ever since I got rid of HBO they started showing great shit like this.
Or maybe it just seems that way. I'm re-upping tomorrow.
I think this version was shown on TV in the late 70s. May have had to edit slightly for TV at the time.
Was shown as a mini series.
Really? It's great drama. Pretty good story line. The contradictions in their lives are interesting. Sopranos borrowed a lot from it.
Just seems that way. Only about 10% is worth watching, but that 10% is really good.
Yep. Plus, you get on-demand.
Yeah, it's one of those movies that has always been in my life ever since I was a kid.
The very first time they showed the first one on tv was such a big deal in my house and I'm not even Italian. I saw the part with the horse's head and it freaked me out!!
When Sonny goes after Carlo for smacking Connie around, he throws a right cross that misses by about two feet, yet Carlo's head snaps back. One of the worst punches in movie history. Don't know how it didn't get edited out of such a classic.
Yeah, Coppola took the opportunity of the network broadcast to re-edit the movie. It got released on VHS in the '80s or '90s, which is how I saw it; I don't think it ever made it to DVD or Blu-ray, so this airing is going to be a first for a lot of people. I can't recall if some of the gnarlier scenes were removed, but it would make sense that they were, since it was a for-TV edit. I'm assuming the HBO airing was re-transferred for HD. Did they restore the gore?
David Chase also openly admitted his admiration for Goodfellas and (as we all know) had a bunch of GF alums on the Sopranos. It's funny when you watch old shows like the Rockford Files, where Chase got his start as a writer--that show featured Joe Santos, whom Chase later cast as Angelo Garepe on the Sopranos. He definitely remembered his old friends.
