    Oh I just remembered this one from 1 year and a half ago: Live by Night. I really enjoyed it, trailers were misleading and were telling a different story because it painted Ben Affleck's character like the usual anti-hero that walks too closely the thin line but it was the opposite, but still had many gangster elements to it.

    Does Ghost Dog count? Different kind of gangster.

    Black Mass is good.

    Every movie needs a transsexual character who shoots dart out of their vagina.

    In all seriousness though, Um....

    - The Godfather: The original is a masterpiece. The sequel is great too, but I'm one of the few people who favor the original.

    - Once Upon a Time in America: Maybe...This is an amazing movie in its own way, but I have to admit that I'm wary of revisiting its 4 hour long running-time. Sometimes though I check it out in parts, as it's flawless when it comes to visuals and sound. Yikes, so many memorable moments. I think my favorite scene is that time jump that uses "yesterday" to signal the transition.

    -The Untouchables: This is probably my personal favorite, in that I can pretty much sit down and watch it whenever I want.

    I'd need to think about it though. "The Goodfellas" is great, but never had that same impact on me that it left on others. This isn't my preferred genre, so I haven't actually seen a lot of them at this time ("Carlito's Way", "Casino" and a few others).

    I am surprised at some of the names listed though. "Gangster Squad"? I mean, it was a fun movie, but I never thought it would be anyones favorite. "Live by Night" was also a bit of a mess, but hey, if you made a 'Favorite Dinosaur movies' thread, I would probably list "Carnosaur"...so...who am I to judge?
