Jesus.Imagine when this hair style was an IN thing.
I’d never seen Scarface fully until just now and it started out so good.I was enjoying it but the more the film went on the more i began to hate Tony Montana.He’s a good bad guy and all that but he’s just such a massive douche bag.I mean really he has everything,gets the girl the power and the money but somehow it just ruins him.It could be the massive amounts of coke he’s doing that begin to warp him but i guess that’s here-say. Scarface was written by Oliver Stone and Brian De Palma directed.You really do get the 80’s theme from the film with the clothing choice disco music and the rest.There’s also some good original music in the film too.I’ll sum up the plot for anyone who hasn’t seen it,in a nut shell it’s :a Cuban guy emigrates to American,starts small doing ‘jobs’ for a gangster,he moves up the ladder and then he’s on the top rung.No one’s untouchable so eventually he gets got.Michelle Pfeiffer looks tasty in this but she could have done with a couple of cheese burgers.
IMDB RATING – 8.2
MY RATING – 7.5
SEEN BEFORE – NO
RECOMMEND? – YES
OVERALL – WOULD HAVE BEEN TWICE AS GOOD WITHOUT SCARFACE IN IT.
stairsA Guy Richie film,fuck where do i begin?I think if you’re going to watch one of his films do just that.Watch ONLY one because they all have the exact same plot.There’s two groups ,good guys and bad guys.The good guys get fucked over by the bad guys and have X amount of days to sort it.They finally sort it.They they get ripped off or there’s a shoot out.Things look bad and finally it all works out okay in the end.All the while this formula is set in a London gangster scene.Throw in 200 classic indie tracks and wahey you have a Guy Richie film.On wait i forgot,you need a voice over because evidently you’re not being spoon fed enough.No character development.No fatal flaws.No nothing.I find his films tripe and I’ve seen them all.But i can see how they appeal to the masses.Load enough music and drug references and Joe-public will like it.
