I didn’t like it much either because it’s a bit “too much”, exagerated, too eighties for me. I KNOW, this is justified, the movie has to be so because of Tony Montana, anway, I still think it’s too much for me.
Why didn’t you like it either ?
To be honest I don’t know how well I can answer that. I think I’d have to watch it again to find specific reasons, because, to be honest, I really didn’t pay it total attention because it just didn’t catch my attention. I watched it with a friend and my mind starting drifting about half way through. It just seemed to ultra masculine and pointless to me I guess. I don’t mind if a movies only point is to entertain, but it didn’t even do that.
On a funny/bizarre side note -> I read in the paper the other day about how another “crack house” had been raided by police. They’re essentially shitty, disgusting apartments where druggies go to do their stuff and not get arrested. The cops were talking about how the places were also extremely disgusting/depressing and all that stuff you would imagine, but the police officer also said that everyone of these places he’s ever found were basically empty except for some scarface merchandise. I just thought that was kind of weird/funny
I’m curious what about Scarface some people enjoy. Is it just the entertainment factor, or do you see something more important in the movie?
