Movies You Should Watch Immediately: Miller's Crossing

edited January 2009 in Social Entropy++
Alright, so some of you guys are aficionados of film. Great. Cool.

You are cool dudes.

But man, sometimes I must let people know.

Let em' know some shit.

If you are any sort of fan of crime films at all, or of the Coen Brothers, then you gotta see Miller's Crossing.

This movie has everything I like about crime movies, and perfect dialogue for a period piece like this, son.

Millerscrossingposter.jpg

Gabriel Byrne plays Tom Reagan, an advisor to a mob boss in the prohibition era. His cunning and detachment are his tools for life in this rough world, but when he lets his emotions get in the way in one critical situation he's gotta use all his cunning and sweet talk to survive.

I ain't as verbose as a lot of you but I want to talk with cats who have watched this and people who get done watching it.

The operative word here is WATCH THIS FUCKING MOVIE.

HERE IS A TRAILER, SHITHEAD :

    Regan is cool as hell. But Leo is the ass kicker. And the guy who played Leo is even better. The second-in-charge cop was funny shit.

    Also this movie makes me want to drink whiskey and brandy a lot.

    Leo and that fucking Danny Boy scene.

    Every goddamn time when a boss in a gangster movie is about to be killed I start groaning because they always seem so mailed in.

    But then that old man went fucking crazy.

    I like how there were like 100 bodyguards outside of his office afterwards. Like he knew the bad guys knew they would need to send a friggin army after him next time.

    The Ladykillers would've been great with John Tuturro in Tom Hank's role.

    Ladykillers may be the worst movie they've put out, but it's still pretty solid. The movie is really good in just about everyway, I just think the premise isn't nearly as interesting as most of their movies.

    It is their only black mark as far as I am concerned. But not a very good movie. And I'm not even pulling the 'original was best' move here, it's simply flat.

    Anyone who's never seen Miller's Crossing should be ashamed of themselves.

    And every Coens movie is worth seeing, they arent all amazing but none of them are bad.

    Trailer looks interesting. I guess I'll poke around Netflix and check this out.

    Also, Ladykillers was pretty entertaining. Couldn't complain about anyone in it.

    Especially Hanks. I love his movies.
