American Gangster

American Gangster
Watching the trailers for Ridley Scott’s American Gangster it’s hard not to be reminded of Scorsese’s The Departed, the most recently successful Hollywood spin on the world of mobsters versus cops. But if there’s any similarity between the two films at all, it ends with the advertisements. Where Scorsese’s film is intense, entangled, and full of pathos Scott’s film is calculating and flat. American Gangster is a procedural more than anything; a basic, by the numbers execution of a standard good cop versus sympathetic mob boss drama.

Robin and the 7 Hoods
The Rat Pack packed it in after this sprightly musical comedy that owes more than it should to Damon Runyon's stories and Frank Loesser and Abe Burrows's classic musical Guys and Dolls. Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen's bright and snappy score features such songs as "Style", "Bang-Bang" and the Sinatra standard "My Kind of Town". Set in 1920s Chicago, the tale begins during a birthday party for head mobster Big Jim (Edward G. Robinson) who is shot to death during the celebration. Rival gangster Guy Gisbourne (Peter Falk) immediately declares himself the chief gangster.
