my comment- what is your point, here exactly? different movie, different
This is to that Clark Walker character who thinks he's the foremost critic
and film historian. Why does there have to be a point? He's just asking
geez greg, what did I ever do you to you? Are you just breaking my balls
a little or are YOU a jaggoff?
ps to DEFRANCO71 -terribly sorry if I may have offended you by giving a
short reply to your short post. I wasn't trying to be rude, I just
wondered what it was that you were aiming at - a discussion of Long
Island dialect, humor, curse words, Joe Pesci's method, screenwriter Nick
Pileggi's motives, what?
pss to Gregg H. -
you say, "Why does there have to be a point? He's just asking a
I say, sure, and his question was, and I quote, "Any comments?" My
comment was, "What's your point?" If his post "had no point" as YOU
infer, (not I) I'd like to hear that from Defranco, not a third party.
Apparently a firm "yes" to both questions. This guy seems to enjoy flaming
people, including me, on several newsgroups. Personally, I've found most of Clark
Walker's posts to be interesting, well-informed, and often, showing
thoughtfulness. I've so far found Gregg's posts to be the opposite of that, often
not taking the time to to even comprehend the post before breaking out his trusty
little flamethrower (such as calling me an "asshole" and saying that I know
nothing of film-making for giving my opinion that Scorsese's best work was yet to
come, and several other things). Gregg, you need to lay off the coffee, make a
few friends, get laid -- whatever it takes to prevent you from having diarrhea of
the fingers. Try and contribute something to what is a public news forum -- other
than asinine provocations.
Actually, I just saw it again on VHS and they do say " Breaking HIS
balls" in the movie at least once if not more.. Besides, these gangsters
were from Kansas City and the lingo, accents and expressions are
incredibly different than that used in New York.
