Re: Favorite Robert De Niro movie that you've seen

My top... several favorite Robert DeNiro's movies are:

#1 Fav. - Mean Streets, what some would call his breakout role and my absolute favorite DeNiro (and Harvey Keitel) movie.

#2 Fav. - True Confessions, great movie set during 1940's LA with DeNiro as a priest. Also stars Robert Duvall as his brother who is a take-no-shit 1940's LA Detective. (I bet at least 65% of you haven't seen this movie. It's a slow movie but DeNiro and Duvall are great IMO)

#3 Fav. - Midnight Run, finally DeNiro's stars in a great comedy along with Charles Grodin. DeNiro's character is a bounty-hunter who is looking for a man (Charles Grodin) who stole millions from the Mafia and also committed bank fraud or some white-collar crime.

#4 Fav. - The Deer Hunter, great movie that shows the effects that the Vietnam War has had on a small industrial Pennsylvania town and DeNiro's character and Christopher Walken's character who played his best friend who also went to Vietnam at the same time with DeNiro's character.

#5 Fav. - Goodfellas, just not one of the best movies ever, it's considered the best Mob movie (behind GF1 & GF2). It stars DeNiro as a leader of a group of gangsters, thieves, etc.

#6 Fav. - A Bronx Tale, it's a mob/mafia movie but it doesn't follow the mode of other similar movies. It stars DeNiro (who also directed it) as a regular working stiff who doesn't approve of the local mob and wants his son to not associate with the local mob.

#7 Fav. - Cape Fear, great thriller movie which stars DeNiro as a recently released lunatic felon who tries to get revenge on his lawyer (Nick Nolte) because DeNiro's character thinks that his lawyer supposedly fucked him over and didn't do his job right which got him sent to jail. DeNiro did an amazing job pulling off the psychotic and sociopath Max Cady.

#8 Fav. - TIE BETWEEN Casino & Godfather, Part 2. In Casino DeNiro stars as the Mob's inside man running a Casino in Las Vegas. And in Godfather Part 2, DeNiro stars as a young Don Vito Corleone whose just getting into the world of organized crime and starts to build the empire that we finally see he has built in Godfather 1 when Marlo Brando plays the older version of the character.

#9 Fav. - This Boy's Life, good drama which stars DeNiro as an over-bearing alcoholic stepfather to a young Leonardo DiCarpio.


I know alot of people won't agree with some of this post, especially having Casino and Godfather, Part 2 so low on my list. But just remember this is going by the movies of his that I have enjoyed the most.

Honrable Mentions
: Taxi Driver (only seen 1/2 of it years ago), Analyze This (the sequel was shit), Heat, The Fan, The Score, Meet the Parents, Wag The Dog, Sleepers, and Showtime.

Re: Favorite Robert De Niro movie that you've seen

Muta you need to Taxi Driver again. Not saying it should be your favorite, just saying it's great.

I like your list though. He's never been as a creepy as was in Cape Fear. The only one I haven't seen is True Confessions. And I just don't get The Deer Hunter. I've tried to watch and like it multiple times, but it just doesn't work for me.

I still need to see King of Comedy too.

King Of Comedy is great. One of his best performances imo, he plays a total weirdo in it and it's so different from any of his other roles. I'd also say it's one of the most underrated Scorsese movies.

Although I think Pacino is better in it, I would say Godfather Part II.

Re: Favorite Robert De Niro movie that you've seen

Goodfellas is my number one. Best mob movie ever and just awesome all around. Deniro, Liotta, and Pesci were all fantastic and played off of each other beautifully.

Love Taxi Driver, of course.

Cape Fear is awesome obviously.

And to throw some comedy in there, I love Meet the Parents and Analyze This (sequels, not so much).
