George, GoodFellas was a nom.
It had looked like you had nominated it, and then him. But since it's just a nom from him, make mine a second.

Makes sense to include the films from the Warner Gangster collection since this is what Steve is celebrating.

Noms
White Heat
Public Enemy
Little Caesar
Roaring Twenties


If I had more I'd nominate the other two

Okay, four more noms, secs, and thirds for everyone.

Jim gets his White Heat nom back since Ric had already nominated it; I'll assume he would have seconded it so he's minus a second. Posted Image

Beating him to the punch, I'll nominate Angels With Dirty Faces, The Petrified Forest, Carlito's Way, and the recent I'll Sleep When I'm Dead.

Seconding: Scarface '32, Little Caesar, Public Enemy, The Roaring Twenties, State of Grace, The Krays, The Killers '46, Reservoir Dogs

Third: Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai

Yes, The Killer is the John Woo film.

I should have also specified that Get Carter is the original Michael Caine film & not the horrid remake.
