Movie Gangs of New York (2002)

20101212:
This was a great movie. Leonardo DiCaprio has been in great movies. I've seen so many of them too. I plan to rewatch a bunch of his movies when I get back to CA. I could probably do a one-day marathon. Then I'll have another one-day marathon for Johnny Depp.

Amsterdam Vallon (Leonardo DiCaprio)

The movie was on two discs.

Bill 'The Butcher' Cutting (Daniel Day-Lewis)

I knew that Gotham City (where Batman takes place) is basically New York City, but I didn't realize how true this was until after watching this movie and the aforementioned special feature. See Gotham City (Wikipedia.org).

Jenny Everdeane (Cameron Diaz)

William 'Boss' Tweed (Jim Broadbent)


Instant Comments:
A: Oh, Brendan Gleeson. I didn't know he was in this movie.
A: Why would the battle end as soon as the priest was killed?

John C. Reilly (Happy Jack Mulraney)

A: I wonder how long he spent in reform that he would notice something like a timepiece being lifted (which would seem like a skill acquired on the streets).
A: "Have I ever had you before?" She shakes her head no. "Then you don't call me by my Christian name."
A: Damn. "That, my friends, is the minority vote."
A: Huh. Do the two gangs still go at it? Despite a common goal?

Wlater 'Monk' McGinn (Brendan Gleeson)

A: Interrupted by cannon fire.

Special Features
1: I watched the special feature "Discovery Channel Special 'Uncovering The Real Gangs Of New York'" on the second disc.
