    I found it pretty dull. I'd read an article on Lucas and I was really looking forward to the movie but for me it was disappointing.

    Do Pulp Fiction and Resevoir dawgs count. Liked both of those. I'm not a gangsta movie watcher. But I thought Goodfellas, Donnie Brasco were good too. GoodFellas probably had the most lasting impact on me. But Like I said, I didn't even see Godfather until this year so it's an unqualified view.

    1. Goodfellas
    2. Pulp Fiction
    3. Resevoir Dogs
    4. Brasco
    5. GodFather 1

    1. Miller's Crossing
    2. Once Upon A Time In America
    3. Key Largo (Bogart and Edward G. Robinson... I mean come on)
    4. Godfather II
    5. Force of Evil

    It's difficult to list only five, there have been a ton of truly great gangster flicks.
