One of the best mafia films of all time, arguably the best work of director Martin Scorsese, and a crime classic.
Stars: Ray Liotta (Henry Hill), Robert De Niro (Jimmy Conway), Joe Pesci (Tommy DeVito), Loraine Bracco (Karen Hill)
Based on the book "Wiseguy" by Nicholas Pileggi, and based on the true story of Henry Hill, an American mobster who was an associate of the Luccese Family of New York. The story starts in the 1950's, the "old days" of the mafia, before things got the way they are at present day. Hill starts out working at a small cabstand as an after school job, but ends up earning a lot more money, learning to score, here and there. The owner of the cabstand, Tuddy, brother of Paulie Cicero (the boss of the family) offers his affection and wisdom. Hill spends much of his time at the cabstand, and eventually drops out of school. Henry goes on to be an associate working for Paulie in illegal activities.
The movie is a dynamic, and is put together wonderfully, with flashback scenes, and clever narrations.
The movie Casino, also by Scorsese, which was released a few years later, has some similarities to Goodfellas, besides the fact that Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci star in it, as well.
As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster.
You know, we always called each other goodfellas. Like you said to, uh, somebody, :You're gonna like this guy. He's all right. He's a good fella. He's one of us.: You understand? We were good fellas. Wiseguys.
1. The act of insulting someone via a reference to an embarrassing event in their past. The term was popularized by a scene in "Goodfellas" in which Billy Batts admonishes Tommy DeVito for his subservient childhood job by exclaiming "go home and get your f**kin shinebox."
2. Attacking someone for previous shameful actions, giving the impression said acts are indelible.
Mike opted to avoid attending his high school reunion, knowing they'd remember his loss of bladder control in gym class and be shineboxing him all night.
|6.||Go Get Your Shinebox|
To put someone back in their place by reminding them of their roots or some former activity. To call someone on a bit of hypocrisy. From the film "Goodfellas" in which Billy Batts intentionally goads Tommy DeVito by derisively reminding him he was a shoeshine boy.
"Ugg, did you see Jeremy is drinking PBR? What a hipster."
"Go get your shinebox, you drank it just last week to get in good with the indie broad."
