Happy 20th, Goodfellas!!!
Later this year, after Martin Scorsese’s new film “Shutter Island” comes and goes at the movies and comes out on Blu-ray and DVD, it will be 20 years since his hit movie “Goodfellas” came out. At the time of its release, the two-and-a-half hour movie had more than 300 uses of a popular swear word, had an all star cast, and made back its $25 million budget and thrived as a popular movie on TV as well as on DVD and Bluray and VHS. The popularity of this movie spawned other mob movies of the decade, and reinvigorated the genre as a whole.
