I'd never dream of listening those types of songs but love the Goodfellas soundtrack, it's sensational and goes perfectly the scenes.

Henry really, really goes out of his way to avoid using the word "mafia".

You never admit to the existence of this thing.

He called them "the organisation" earlier on, like that's not the most suspicious phrasing you've ever heard.

Is there a single mistake in this movie?

A scene that doesn't advance the theme or the plot? A character who doesn't work? A musical cue that doesn't fit? A directorial shot that's out of place?

 

The only note I have is it should be another hour longer.

Be careful what you wish for, Netflix will probably have a 12 series 'Henry Hill in suburbia' spin off in the pipeline, starring Ewan McGregor.

"She's prejudiced against Italians."

 

Of all the legitimate reasons not to go out with a psychopath like Tommy, alone, she somehow picks that.

 

Women, eh.

Think the most relatable part in the movie is Henry getting badgered by his mother in law, thinking fuck this and walking away.

Absolutely. Although I did something similar and dismissed an exes mum who was being doing my head in….. 3 months later a seemingly perfect relationship was in tatters with her bitter mother holding the smoking gun. Zero shame.

Having friends who are concerned about your marriage and your general happiness is invaluable.

One thing (amongst a million) I loved is the mysterious dialogue," he bought his fucking button that fake tough guy".

Now you have Google to clear that up but in 1995 when I first watched you had no idea what that actually meant.
