    you seem to take a liking to that movie The Age of Innocence which i have not seen, but really need (and want) to. it’s been a while since i’ve seen the movie Gangs of New York, but from the last experience, thought it was not one of the greatest films ever — not just for Scorsese standards… what is it you like so much about that film? i’d love to hear what you’ve got to say about it. Shutter Island was an okay movie (great cinematography and acting though), then again, I also did not like the movie Inception as much as everyone else (if you think real hard, the two movies are very very similar). ok, i need to stop commenting on every single movie on this list haha. one last note, the movies Goodfellas and Taxi Driver definitely deserve to be higher up on the list.

  • How did I miss this? :'(

    Filmmakers shouldn’t be this good.

  • I didn’t actually vote in this poll, but no prizes for guessing my #1. My Next Projection Taxi Driver review:

  • Only 79% for Goodfellas? Wow – I totally expected that to take the top spot!

  • I actually have never seen The Last Temptation of Christ, yikes!

  • Scorsese has deemed ‘The Age of Innocence’ his most violent picture.  Emotional violence can be just as painful as physical….if not more so.

  • My feelings towards Gangs of New York may have something to do with my Daniel Day-Lewis, but it’s a film that time after time I keep returning to and it keeps impressing me. 

  • Franchesca

    yes, you can’t go wrong with Daniel Day-Lewis. but i definitely have to re-watch this movie.

  • Franchesca

    he said that?
    now really interested to watch that movie.
    but definitely agree on your stance.
    ah, you just got me excited to watch this movie haha.

  • Really interested in hearing your stance on The Age of Innocence? It’s easily my favourite Scorsese!
