Too bad Colagero turned into a real thug.





Yes he really messed up a chance for a good life.

His real name is Lillo Brancato was born in Bogota Columbia. Adopted when he was four months old, he was raised by Italian American parents,.

And I read, while looking to cast the Bronx Tale, they were looking for an Italian looking kid to play his part, and they found him one day on Jones Beach in Long Island, and that's how he got the job.






looking for an Italian-looking kid?  It's amazing that they found one in the NY area....


I agree with loon; his crappy acting fit perfectly to the part - same as Sophia Coppola in GF III, she played a kid in love, that part has to be played awkwardly - bad acting translates well to awkwardness....

Well she sure was a terrible actress. Good career choice to change to directing.

I believe there are at least two scenes in the awful Godfather 3 where Sophia looks at the camera while walking off screen. Cringe worthy.  Francis had some quick debt to pay off. Thankfully a real movie about the mob was made that same year but hilariously Goodfellas was ignored by the "award voters". Yet another reason to give any award its warranted grain of salt.

Goodfellas was a very good movie. But, after you have seen one mob movie you have seen then all. Same plot, same theme, same violence.

It's a genre; you could say the same thing about horror movies, cowboy movies, space movies, knights in armor-type movies, sword-and-sandal movies, war movies, prison movies, car-racing movies, horse-racing movies, submarine movies, etc etc etc.

Godfather 3 was almost unwatchable. It was unreal that he directed that movie. Even Pacino stunk in it. In the first 2 he was so good and he played Michael so calm, cool and calculating. In the 3rd he was like another person. 


 IMO the all time worst movie sequel was the Exorcist. Richard Burton starred in it. I only finished watching it because I couldn't believe how bad it was and kept thinking it had to get better. It got worse. The Jaws sequels were bad also.

Godfather III jusr somehow brought out the worst in everybody.  Even Eli Wallach (Calvera in the Magnificent Seven) was awful.  Normally I like almost anything Joe Mantegna is in, but Joey Zasa?  AwfulThe guy playing Connie's opera-singing son?  Awful  George Hamilton and Father Guido Sarducci?  Come on.  Talia Shire was just phoning it in.  Everybody just looked like actors reading their lines.  I didn't believe anybody.  Andy Garcia was OK, but not great like Pacino was in I and II.  The Sicilian assassin was good, but that's about it.

Exactly and that's why I don't watch many movies anymore. Every now and then something really interesting comes along and I'll watch it. Some of my recent favorites have been: No Country For Old Men, Inception, Memento, There Will Be Blood, City Of God, Million Dollar Baby, The Millenium Trilogy (Swedish version), Let the Right One In.

No Country was outstanding.  Off the top of my head my favorites since 2011 are Zero Dark 30, Lincoln, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Ted.

Zero Dark 30 was excellent. I didn't see Lincoln. The Girl With Dragon Tattoo was better in the Swedish version. The American version painted Bloomqvist as being cavalier in his treatment of Lisbeth. In the book and in the Swedish movie version that was not true. American movies have to have the obligatory male bashing to appeal to the female audience.
