Always. Still amazes me how awesome Ray Liotta was for a brief period & how quickly the guy just kinda fell off the face of the Earth. I really expected him to be an A-lister for life as a Deniro, Pesci, Hanks, Stallone, etc...

The best part of the movie is where they cap Joe Pesci. I can't stand that dude. He plays a bad ass in everything he's in but he's nothing but a little toad. I bet he thinks he's really a goomba in real life. I picture him as a little shit disturber talking tough as long as he has a bunch of real tough guys there to back him up. An Italian version of the weasel in Warriors that kept saying "Warriors come out and play".

That was good. Pesci's character is a nutjob - not for the first time in a Scorsese movie!

The only other movie I can remember seeing Ray Liotta in was Cop Land, which I thought was a fine film and he was good in it.

Pesci was in Lethal Weapon 2,3 and 4. I thought he was there for comedy relief. He wasn't there to help the other guys kick ass for sure.

yer, he's a good comic actor as well. My Cousin Vinny is a favourite.

Nothing to do with Marisa Tomei ... of course.

About 3 years ago, my oldest girl was watching one of the last Hanna Montana episodes while I was in the other room. Hanna was sent to the principle's office for whatever reason, and when he spoke, well I knew right there that that had to be Ray Liotta, and sure enough, it was him. He actually did a good job, too.

He's probably got it in him to pull off a remarkable come back. He just has to select something well written, like a Vince Gilligan story.
