Finally Seeing American Gangster
I don't care if he snitched. I don't care for Jay's soundtrack. I don't watch bootlegs. I love going to the movies and today is the big day. I've had November 2nd circled on my calender for months now. Everyone is telling me it's good, but I have to see it myself. Is it Casino good? Scarface good? Goodfellas good? Paid In Full(I love that movie) good? Training Day good? Or is it Belly good?

Let me know your thoughts, if you've seen it.

See ya at Kips Bay!

    I saw the bootleg...and I'm going to see the movie..Anyway, the movie is fuckin great. Bottom line..fuckin great. I live in Atlanta (Decatur to be exact) and the movie hit the streets early..My curiosity got to me...I had to watch. I was intrigued every second of viewing this early version..George Lucas can direct the fuck out of a movie, but Frank Lucas TRUE STORY made for a better storyline than many movies I've seen recently. Before I watched it, I had heard that some people weren't pleased by what they saw. As soon as I heard this, it made me want to see it even more because a lot of times things people don't like, I end up liking..People are so trend-led. It has been years since I've seen a biopic this good and people are already hating..Oh well..Cause the story is the truth and Nicholson said it best, people don't like the truth..They want to see people hacked up in Saw 19 and shit..Go get a fuckin history lesson..Even if you already seen the bootleg, go support the movie..Hollywood is Mt. Olympus and Denzel is the Zeus of the shit..

    i need to check my google reader more often cause i should have had top spot on this comment post.

    anywhoo...being the gangster flick junkie that i am, i felt it was your typical gangster movie minus the "frills". I knew about Frank Lucas prior to this movie and I thought it was fascinating that he managed to Bamboozle the US Government and use the MILITARY to smuggle all that gosh darn heroin.

    I don't care how he met his wife. I dont care how big the house was that he bought his mother...you got modern day "gangsters" doing that right now. Aside from the scene where he blows dudes brains out in broad daylight and calmly walks back to eat with his family before his grits got cold was freaking classic. But I wanted to know who were the KEY PLAYERS in this overseas arrangement.

    I guess theres only so much film you can spend on a mastermind who "works" with the US Military to filter Heroin into the 5 Boroughs.
