    Scorsese has killed the gangster genre with this movie. De Niro, Pesci, and Pacino are all fantastic. There is so much I loved about this movie! It's a shame that most people will be watching this on a TV instead of a theater because it is truly cinematic.

    I probably haven't watched this since 2014. Pretty good design and Amy Adams is very good. Christoph Waltz is horribly miscast for this movie (though he does his best) and the child actors are unbearable. A fine re-visit but probably won't be back to it for another five years.
