@Denise I was really trying to tie in a womens point of view on the romance side of gangsta films, lol, I guess the gangsta films are action packed and that's why I like them, not too much into full romance movies, they have to have a kick to them, lol

...well I just love to love the way you put this hub all together being the avid film buff that you are - and it shows .....full of fun and enlightenment - you are influencing people to open their eyes and see what's out there - and the earliest Pacino movie that I know of - he played a junkie in Panic in Needle Park - and one of my favorite films of all time - Spike Lee's watershed film - the landmark 'Do the Right Thing' which should be shown in every virtual classroom in the cyber universe - it's about race relations - and so nice to meet you - you're doing a hubfantastic job here!

This is a half hour piece of entertainment you have put together! I can imagine the amount of time to put this together and then add the fact that you can spot all these films finding romantic moments. Beautiful and up one. IF they had an "Up two or three" I'd give it that rating. This goes off the chart for me! Big movie buff! RJ
