Another Voices FILM Podcast,
The Wes & Oldboy Chronicles Podcast Episode 4
Goodfellas, Martin Scorsese & The Mafia In Cinema
Todays episode is brought to you by…us.
Oldboy and I took a 2 week break, and returned with a vengence to discuss the newly remastered “Goodfellas: 25th Anniversary” Blu-ray disc which has finally been remastered from the original 35mm negative and color corrected, all supervised by Martin Scorsese.
It’s a 4 star (out of 5) job, and it looks better than it ever has.
See the screenshots below…
Simply a perfect film
We actually do a film commentary track because we watch the film during the recording.
We discuss Scorsese’s films leading up to his 1990 masterwork.
Then we enter into Brian DePalma‘s “The Untouchables”, Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather” then finally into David Chase’s “The Sopranos”…it’s legacy, Edie Falco and how hard-core she is and Vince Gilligan’s “Breaking Bad”.
