    Watched with my 2-year old son. Here are some of his observations:

    Scarface

    ★★★★★

    The clothing. The cars. The pastels. This movie is cocaine. Is Scarface over the top? Yes. But for Brian de Palma to bring Oliver Stone's violent and excessive script to life, over the top is all we could have asked for.
