    It's incredible how much 80's music can cheapen a movie. 6 years 7 months ago

    Why do people use the word overrated? People rate things best on how good they feel the movie/game/book etc is. All the art forms are so subjective that words like overrated suggest arrogance because of how subjective art is. 8 years 10 months ago

    A movie I only knew for its chainsaw scene, and as it turns, for having the same ending as Grant Theft Auto - Vice City. This is the movie that comes out every few years, about the rise and fall of a big criminal, a kind of corrupt American dream, but Scarface is no Godfather, or Goodfellas, or even a Wolf of Wall Street. It's much too obvious for that. It's garish and noisy and vulgar. Al Pacino doesn't so much chew the scenery as devour it, and it does nothing to change my basic opinion of Oliver Stone (who wrote the screenplay) as a sensationalism peddler. Memorable scenes, sure, but Scarface is rather soulless and empty. And that score/soundtrack! Pee-yew! An 80s movie through and through, it's as carbon-dated as a fossil. If someone were to change the music to something more timeless, more traditionally Cuban for example, it would actually improve the film a hundred fold. 4 years ago
