Episode 43 – Goodfellas (w. Ric Vega, Wes Richerson, and Doug Gobeski)

Doug Gobeski brings in his friends Ric and Wes after their first viewing of the 1990 Martin Scorsese film Goodfellas. We talk voiceover, tracking shots, and prison attire. The movie was criticized for extreme depictions of violence at the time, but how does it look in 2019? And we discuss how this all ties in to the gangsters that have appeared in pop culture since. Hopefully you’ll find it funny, in an amusing sort of way!


Apparently some people just don’t get this movie, at least according to the…*checks notes*… New York Post. Well, both Jessica and the screenwriter have something to say about that.

Additionally, Frank Silvero’s lawsuit against The Simpsons was eventually thrown out. Why he didnt just get a recurring role on The Sopranos like everyone else, I just don’t know.
