Martin Scorsese's much-ballyhooed The Irishman promises to reunite De Niro and Pacino, but also features the return of Joe Pesci. From his stoic performance in Raging Bull to his later comedic work in the Lethal Weapon and Home Alone (pictured) franchises, and My Cousin Vinny, Pesci boasted a wide range of talent, making for a welcome re-emergence.
Staff Pick of the Day
Directed by John Woo
Though John Woo's lifelong admiration of Sam Peckinpah, Sergio Leone, Martin Scorsese, and Stanley Kubrick are evident in this stylish actioner, the film is essentially a tribute to Jean-Pierre Melville and his cult thriller Le Samouraï. The film's number of victims makes The Terminator or Rambo pale in comparison, but its brilliant visual style and bravura direction earned accolades even from non-action fans.
