Scarface (1983)


It's Casino all over again!
So basically: In 1980, Fidel Castro opened the port at Mariel Harbour to let Cubans reunite with their families in America. Tony Montana was on one of the boats to America, looking for fortune. He and his friend, Manny, climb the drug dealing ladder in Miami. As the story progresses, Tony grows more reckless and violent until his inevitable death.

I like to think I'm a pretty versatile movie watcher - meaning I'll try everything once and I'm not too picky about genres or styles. So when I say that I don't like Scarface it's not because I'm not into that kind of stuff. I mean, I'm not, but that doesn't mean I won't like a film of this sort. Anyway, I didn't like this film. I thought it was long and boring and Tony was an ass. Also, the chick was kinda lame - until she left him, of course. Srs, she's like "I wouldn't fuck you if you were the last guy on Earth!" and then she goes and marries him?! I don't understand movies like this, where the ass of a lead gets the girl who hates his guts - usually the girl ends up leaving him, or trying to, but she still married him for Pete's sake! I don't care how much "security" the dude has, it's totes not worth it! Yeah, boring.

"Say hello to my little friend" is the only reason this is on the list (I'm not being srs, don't worry). I honestly don't get why it's such a big hit, sry, and therefore can't see why it's on the list.

Ziggi seal of disapproval!


  1. I don't remember much of this movie, I agree, too long, too boring, and nothing sticks out to me but the architecture - That's how interesting it was. "Lookit that lovely rot iron stair case...Oh hm? Drug deal. No I really don't give a shit."
