ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA (1984)

A nearly four-hour period gangster movie that represented the culmination of director Sergio Leone’s career. It is also a super weird movie.

PULP FICTION (1994)

Even if you have not watched it over and over, the people who made the movies you have, have.

THE GODFATHER PART III (1990)

Francis Ford Coppola recently released a re-edited version of the least-acclaimed film of his famous mafia trilogy, but how much of a difference does it make?

THE GODFATHER PART II (1974)

This all-encompassing sequel involves at least two separate movies that never quite meet.

THE GODFATHER (1972)

Francis Ford Coppola’s mafia epic is now fixed in American culture.

GOODFELLAS (1990)

Scorsese’s most cutting exploration of the gangster lifestyle. I like the movie. The lifestyle’s not for me.

SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959)

I had, um, some issues with this comedy about cross-dressing and/or dudes that want to sleep with Marilyn Monroe.
