I like the Untouchables with Sean Connery, Kevin Costner, Robert De Niro and Andy Garcia in it. Great film that i'll always love, mainly since it was the first Mob film i watched! The elevator seen still gets me!

Personally, I think mob movies are incredibly damaging to American Culture. Every time a new mob movie comes out, a couple of thousand more impressionable guido kids think they're invulnerable wise guys. The result: a spike in bar brawls and stupid petty crime, and more irritation to social critics like myself.
That being said, I gotta go with The Untouchables
(Just to head snide Euros of at the pass, I know 'American Culture' may seem like an oxymoron ).

In goodfellas, probably my favorite, albeit disturbing scene, is when Ray Liotta "bitch-slaps" his girlfriends (later wife) old boyfriend after he physically abuses her, with the butt of his handgun. The sound effects even made it more realistic!
I am going to have to watch Midnight Run again. Is it available on DVD?
