Entertainment 4m

With The Irishman just around the corner, we thought we’d look back at some of Marty’s finest moments in film.

Those of us who were too stingy to see Martin Scorsese’s latest film, The Irishman, during its limited Australian theatre run, have only a few days to wait before it hits our screens thanks to Netflix. The film, which sees the iconic director link up with longtime collaborators Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, is creating a huge amount of buzz at the moment, registering a solid 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.

So here, we thought we’d get ourselves fired up for The Irishman by re-watching some of Scorsese’s most iconic scenes (it’s a tough job) and putting laying them out right here for your viewing pleasure. So sit back and enjoy:

You Talking To Me? (Robert DeNiro) – ‘Taxi Driver’ 1976

If you’ve never stood in a mirror and uttered the lines “are you talking to me?” who even are you?

Tootski? (Matthew McConaughey & Leonardo DiCaprio) – ‘The Wolf Of Wallstreet’ 2014

Some solid career advice from McConaughey’s Mark Hanna to Leo’s Jordan Belfort. Sadly this is probably the reason why so many bankers are wankers…

How Am I Funny? (Joe Pesci & Ray Liotta) – ‘Goodfellas’ 1990

Talk about tension. There’s something so charming about Pesci’s sociopathic characters isn’t there?

Rat Scene (Leonardo DiCaprio & Jack Nicholson) – ‘The Departed’ 2006

One of the most intense scenes in the whole film… Nicholson’s character feels so imposing in this scene.

The Shinebox (Joe Pesci) – ‘Goodfellas’ 1990

The number one lesson you can learn from Scorsese’s films is don’t ever mess with Joe Pesci.

Come In With The Milk (Leonardo DiCaprio) – ‘The Aviator’ 2005

Scorsese and DiCaprio show us what life inside the mind of “eccentric” billionaire Howard Hughes is like. Frankly, it doesn’t look pretty.

The Butcher Backstabs (Daniel Day Lewis & Brendan Gleeson) – ‘Gangs Of New York’ 2002

Daniel Day Lewis’ Bill The Butcher exudes dominance in his “You are neither cold nor hot” speech after his ruthless murder of Gleeson’s Walter McGavin.

The Pop & Lock (Leonardo DiCaprio) – ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ 2014

A quickie but a goodie. Also, shoutout to Jonah Hill’s dancing which is somehow just as funny as DiCaprio here.

What’s A Mook? (George Memmoli) – ‘Mean Streets’ 1973

In case you were wondering, a mook (according to Google) is a stupid or incompetent person…

Couple Of Hundred Yards Down The Road (Robert Deniro & Joe Pesci) – Casino 1996

What the fuck are you doing on TV anyhow? It’s scenes like this that have got us so pumped for The Irishman..
