Project 101

Dan attempts to watch 101 movies in 12 months

#4 Scarface

Posted by Dan on December 6, 2008

Okay, time to break out a big-time iconic movie, so what better to start with that Scarface?

I really dug this movie, but to be honest, it’s probably not something I’ll break out again anytime soon. This movie is a perfect example of what   and I were talking about when this started – there’s some movies that, unless you see them when they came out, at that time and at that age of social climate, then it kinda loses something.

I get the feeling that had I watched this movie 15 years ago, it would’ve blown my mind, but this movie does age a lot. The character of Tony Montana isn’t entirely believable – I mean, hell, Pacino spends most of the movie overacting his arse off, but for some reason, you don’t care. Tony’s a bad motherfucker, and I can definitely understand why it’s got the following it does.

Seeing it for the first time in 2008 though, doesn’t quite have the same sheen to it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad I’ve seen it, I just thought it’d be better.

I give it 3 fuckin cockaroaches out of 5
