I don't care what anyone says about this film, I believe it is Martin Scorsese's best. It fully earned it's best picture win and Scorsese fully earned his Best Director trophy. In my opinion, this is the best mob movie ever made and certainly the best movie taking place in Boston. Everything is perfect, the cast, which I believe to be the best cast in cinema history, the soundtrack, obviously the directing, the cinematography, the acting, it's just a perfect film.

Wow, I am reaaly surprised how much I liked this movie. I have had several opportunities in the past to watch this film, but it just never interested me. I probably would have never seen it if I hadn't become a big Kevin Spacey fan of late. It was nothing like I expected. I expected this film to be shallow and cliche, but it ended up being complex, and I believe, somewhat of a thriller. Truly one of the best films ever made.

It Happened One Night
Although very predictable(although only because I have seen endless rip offs of this movie) this is still a fantastic movie, and by far the best romantic comedy I have ever seen.

It amazes me at how many people seem to hate this movie. I wasn't expecting anything special, and was blown away. This film doesn't get the credit it deserves. Credit is due to the Academy for getting it right.

Victor Fleming directed two films in 1939, "Gone With the Wind" and "The Wizard of Oz". "The Wizard of Oz" is half as long and twice as entertaining.
