1. The King of Comedy

A very interesting movie to me, and even Jerry Lewis was good in it. It got a bit off track, but Rupert Pupkin was a fascinating character.

I also liked Meet the Parents. Circle of Trust..hehe

Peace

3. 1) The Deer Hunter 2) Awakenings

3) Midnight Run
4) The Godfather, Part II
5) GoodFellas

He's awesome in Taxi Driver, but it's not among my favorite films.

4. The Mission

Loved that movie, and bought the soundtrack.
Beautiful work of art.
Sobbed like a baby at the end.

"Heat" was one of only two movies I've ever walked out on.
I just couldn't handle the violence.

I know, "The Mission" is violent as well, but I just couldn't handle "Heat" for some reason.

7. So many. I loved Casino but there are too many to just say one..

I also liked two of his recent movies, "Everybodies Fine" and "Silver Linings Playbook". Also loved "Meet The Parents" -the circle of trust is the best! He's one of my very favorite actors of all time.

10. Godfather 2 is his best movie

however, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas are great, too. Best performance? Maybe Cape Fear? Maybe Raging Bull?

12. For me it's Cape Fear

I was blown away by his performance. It was one of the few remakes I thought was well-justified, as it almost equaled the original (and I rarely feel that way about remakes).

13. Easier to eliminate the handful of bad movies. And no one's mentioned "Bang the Drum Slowly"?

14. 'A Bronx Tale'

Always liked him in that film, and the film itself.
