Who saw this last night?

It was on ridiculously late really (started at 11:10, finished at 01:15) and knackered me for today (had to get up at 07:30) but it was more than worth it.

Powerful, brilliantly acted and superbly written - it is well deserving of it's classic status and place among some of the greatest films of all time. It was the film that "made" Robert De Niro, and after wanting to see it for a huge amount of time, I'm not disappointed.

Excellent.

It is I think. There is a "Cannibal : The Musical" by the South Park creators, that is the story of Alferd Packer. Its crap though.

As we were briefly discussing the film Ravenous in this thread, I thought I'd mention this link :

http://www.crimelibrary.com/ serial_killers/history/alfred_packer/ index.html

it details a story almost identical to the plot in ravenous, I wonder if it was based on it?

that is all.

Did you see The Godfather Part II with Robert De Niro as Vito Corleone?

Yeah, Ravenous wasn't as good but it wasn't a bad film. Certainly not stupid.

I saw Taxi Driver on video a few years ago. Didn't know what it was about or anything about it at all (save for the "Are you talking to me?" speech)

Thought it was... different. I've got it on DVD (haven't watched it yet) and I've been meaning to get around to watching it again to give it a second chance.

Ravenous was excellent, maybe it's you that's stupid?

Yes.

And Taxi Driver is superior to Ravenous.
