Of course we don’t come up with this ourselves. But we start from the reviews and reactions of the viewers. We do this via the Internet Movie Database (IMDb). This is an online database of series, actors, video games and movies. This site has been owned by Amazon since 1998.
We’ll start with an old one, Scarface. The film has a 7.8 as a rating on IMDb. That is quite remarkable, because it is a film from 1932. Yet many people still watch the film. The story is about ‘Tony’, a mobster who forcibly ascends the criminal underworld in Chicago.
The Godfather 2
Not really new either, because the film is from 1974. Still, it scores a very decent 9 on IMDb. The first movie must see you too, before you watch this one. The Godfather 2 was the big breakthrough for the actor Robert De Niro. It’s about the young Vito Corleone growing up in Sicily and New York in 1910. And the film follows Michael Corleone in the 1950s as he tries to expand the ‘family business’ to Las Vegas, Hollywood and Cuba.
This film is from 2006 and has an 8.5. The film is a remake of the Hong Kong crime film Infernal Affairs (2002). The lead roles are played by Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson. The Departed won four Oscars. The story is about a double mole, both with Nicholson’s Irish gang and with the police. And this creates a pleasant dynamic.
