Saw "Soft White Underbelly" there. Some oddity that Blue Oyster Cult's record company wouldn't let them tour arenas under a  certain size, so they instead pretended to be that to play local beer money  shows. Only a year or 2 before , saw them  on a joint bill at MSG with Dio/Black Sabbath. Think the record company knew and it was all BS, but a great show both times. 

I remember that well. Iron maiden did a similar stunt when they played lamours under something like charlotte the harlotte

I definitely married well.  A complete psychotic Jet fan and NFL in general.  Actually enjoys watching games all day on Sunday with me.  No joke, just bought several boxes at work for the SB.

The Taking of Pelham 123.   Original especially.   
 

Gazumteit.....

Loved that flick.  Most shocking part of this trailer is the shot of an almost traffic-less FDR.

I like Ed Norton but I think this would've been a better film if he found himself another director.

No votes for the Warriors or Mean Streets?

I just watched Mean Street  for the first time in a decade. Movie ages  great, the pool hall scene is amazing.

Couple more:  My wife suggested The Devil Wears Prada.  Meryl Streep is great in it and I wanted to bang Emily Blunt.

I'll add a Charles Bronson classic:  Death Wish.

This is my favorite post because the guy tried to blame "his wife" for his first choice being Devil Wears Prada, and then he still didn't feel manly enough, so he threw Death Wish out there.

Ed Burns always did a great job capturing the NY vibe of that time... Brothers McMullen, She's the One, Sidewalks of New York.

Spike Lee too, of course. Summer of Sam is very underrated. Do the Right Thing.

Taxi Driver, of course.

American Psycho

Tried to watch it yesterday but it's not streamable yet.  Will let you know once I ever catch the flick.  Thanks again.

As a Lamour metalhead teen growing up in Brooklyn at the time, hated the movie and hated disco. But the Bee Gees songs on the soundtrack are really good stuff. Oddly the Bee Gees wrote the music on spec without seeing any of the movie. The producers geave them some ideas about the plot, and they came up with the rest. Their songs hold up way better than a lot of music of any style from that time. 

The movie grows on me only as a piece of complete fiction. There were some very dumb cuigines back them, but from the movies you would think Brooklyn was a gorilla convention. Simply not the case . There was a lot more crossover than you might think.Sometimes Italian guys would go to rock concerts and Irish guys would go to dance clubs. 

"Staying Alive", the sequel, on the other hand, could be one of the worst money grab pieces of s__ ever made.

The Marine Parkway Bridge as the kinda opening sequence....

Scorcese shot some footage of "The Irishman" along the roadway leading to the Silver Gull with old cars. Not clear to me watching it if any of it was  actually used.

Hmmm ….

Bronx Tale, Goodfellas and Once Upon a Time in America come to mind but my vote is for The Wanderers 

 

It's actually called "Goodfellows"
