I just watched Goodfellas and thought it was okay. I wasn't as crazy about as many people are. I enjoyed the way it was directed -- the shots, the music, the narration. But I didn't get drawn into any of the characters.

Mainly I enjoyed seeing ways in which David Chase borrowed from Goodfellas for The Sopranos. Although a TV show, The Sopranos has much more depth and complexity, and so many plot lines (spanning years, of course), that there are a lot of points of entry. Compared to the show, Goodfellas felt linear and basic. Still, a fine flick.
