...does that make it bad, overrated, or just okay? Of course not! The only reason that The Godfather and The Godfather Part II were better was because they more about who the characters were, rather than just about what they did.... Full review

But there are other things I love about this movie.....For example, in 1990, we gave "Goodfellas" the prize for best picture....one of my favorite movies from the last 20 years or so, and part of the museum's ongoing salute to the New York Film Critics Circle.....Goodfellas" has aged well, too, all on its own -....Second, "Goodfellas" is a wonderful piece of social observation..... ...

The easy answer is to say that high definition makes any movie better, but for me that isn't true. Such comparisons, of course, seem frivolous today, since "Goodfellas" was always meant to complement, not supplant, "The Godfather" saga. ... Full Review
