    Difficult to chose just one..."Billy Jack"...back in the day...because of its' message. I think it is an important one for these times. Let's have peace and now...and start getting along better...before someone has to start kicking serious butt around here!

    Goodfellas, definitely.  I know you won't disagree, Fiery.  That should have been Scorsese's first Best Picture/Director award.

      i only disagree to the point that it shouldn't have been his first best directing Oscar - Taxi Driver should have been his first Oscar. smile then followed by Raging Bull, then Goodfellas, then Casino. Ha!

    I think Martin Scorsese's best movies is Raging Bull.
    It should have won Best Picture of 1980.
