    American Gangster

    American Gangster

    http://www.imdb.com/video/trailer/me60061652/

    Following the death of his employer and mentor, Bumpy Johnson, Frank Lucas establishes himself as the number one importer of heroin in the Harlem district of Manhattan. He does so by buying heroin directly from the source in South East Asia and he comes up with a unique way of importing the drugs into the United States. As a result, his product is superior to what is currently available on the street and his prices are lower. His alliance with the New York Mafia ensures his position. It is also the story of a dedicated and honest policeman, Richie Roberts, who heads up a joint narcotics task force with the Federal government. Based on a true story. Written by garykmcd

    I enjoyed it. I don't think I've seen anything with Denzel Washington that I didn't enjoy.

    I liked it, too. It's a story of career choices and changes, business strategies, and unlikely friendships. I'd give it 4 out of 5.

    Im not crazy about D.W. Hes a competent actor and hes played some good roles but I dont find him overwhelmingly interesting. Hes not faceted enough.

    If you like a well done western the likes of Silverado you will like 3:10 To Yuma.

    I liked both "3:10 To Yuma" and "American Gangster", but "No Country For Old Men" was the best of the most recent flicks in my opinion. "There Will Be Blood" I am so so about, despite liking the acting of Daniel Day Lewis.

    Next 2 on the list.
    I have kind of a special interest in the Coen Bros. because we went to the same high school.

    I feel the same way about Clint Eastwood since we went to the same high school and are about the same age.

    Well hell you two I didn't go to School with anyone famous.. I was on a plane with Clint Eastwood once, and stood at a bar in Vegas next to Sammy Davis Junior.
