Scarface: First of all, the fact that a non-Cuban actor can play a Cuban so well was amazing!! (and this is coming for a Cuban girl!). And when he was finally taken out, he was taken out like a gangsta, talking the sh*t the entire time! That is badd-azz! Besides the fact that the movie is chock full of one liners that have become instant classics
Good Fellas: The movie was indeed a gangster movie but the way that Ray Liotta's character narrated some of things they did so nonchalantly gave it a bit of a dark comedic undertone to it and I really liked it.
The Untouchables: Forget Kevin Kostner playing Eliot Ness, Sean Connery as Malone and De Niro as Al Capone made the movie! I like how it wasn't your typical good guys vs bad guys. It was just a battle of who can get down dirtier and take the other guy out.
The Godfather: That's a given. No need to explain that one.
Bonnie and Clyde (1967): This is a given for a woman like me who digs these kinds of movies. Talk about stand by your man? She stood with him to the bitter end and that's what I loved about that movie.
*STARTS LOOKING FOR THE RESTRAINTS AND THE RITALIN*
WOW, You two are so TOTALLY wound up about this.....LOL
I agree with Mmcgriffs list though. I HAVE seen Scarface...have seen most of, if not all of, the Godfather, have not seen Goodfellas, And I believe I have seen Bonnie and Clyde too.
These are all representative of the Gangster culture. I believe them to be close to true to life. I have met people with past gangster affiliations and they DID say that the movies were pretty close to the truth, albeit at times the truth was much more violent and drug soaked.
The Muse leaves you in a zen cloud of well being, positive energy and creative fire. You find yourself succumbing to the overwhelming urge to write and create.......
Someone needs to add Casino and Menace to Society!!
I tried watching the Sopranos, but couldn't really get into it that deep. Game of Thrones was kind of 'gangster' because of the 'short-man', but it threw me off with ole' boy getting his head cut off at the end of season 1!!!
Oh, yea... can a gang of Predators stepping out of their camoflauging count as GANGSTA?!?
Omen: Get in line, I have been working like crazy also. I have two major projects I have to finish and hopefully everything slows down. Haven't had time to log into the board... I actually miss it. It feels good popping my head in to see what's going on.

g40t90yes: Good Morning. Now I am no political activist, but with is going on in today's activist world, I have a question. Last Sunday Vice President Pence walked out of a Colts Football game because the Players took a knee. I would like to read your View about this

g40t90yes: Continue. Now The NFL Owners (Jones-Cowboys, Ross-Dolphins) are going to demand their players stand for the Anthem. Again just thinking out loud. Couple of weeks ago Owners (Jones) knelt with players. Now you are pulling back. Why??
Oct 11, 2017 7:54:40 GMT -5
g40t90yes: One more thing. Some people view The NFL Draft and NBA Draft as a modern day or fashionable auction block for black young men. Thoughts!!! Please.

The Muse: Im sure there are going to be a lot of thoughts on this...why not start a thread on the topic under the "chat" board. It will be easier for everyone to read and comment on it there. This shoutbox is kinda cumbersome to have to scroll through to read stuff.

The Muse: Where does the time go?
Nov 7, 2017 9:26:16 GMT -5
Omen: I don't know... some say time goes around in circles - for me, its just a dreary long squiggly line, in some places in its a smile, in others... its not.
