Thats a bit like saying Passions of the christ and titanic were predicatable really.

Saw Goodfellas for the first time recently and was very underwhelmed by the whole thing. Can't understand how it gets so much praise.

yes it follows the story faithfully enough. as a classics student and a frank miller fan i loved it to be honest. to be fair its like the originator of that 'last stand' story so its won its place to be cliche.

The Battle of Thermopylae was the origin of the last stand. 300 was based on it. Hardly rocket science!
