Well, I always used to read good reviews on this flick but actually when i saw it I didn' like it much.
Could you fans of this flick tell me why do you like it? Just wondering
Sure there are many differences in story lines and it's not very appropriate to compare but for me 'Rocky' is much better.

Great movie. It was really innovative and unique flick when it was released. Kinda revolutionary movie in many aspects though I don't like it much. The idea is perfect but the movie itself is a bit boring if you are watching it these days.

Classic, no doubt. I like it, but it's too flawless and seamless. And I dunno whether being too flawless is good or bad. Too sugary

Epic. Masterpiece. Really good flick in many aspects. I like another David Lean's movie called 'Bridge On The River Kwai'

It's sad but I saw only the original version
I'd like to see Moroder's adaptation just because it is with Queen's soundtrack as far as I know

By the way many years later 'Rat Race' came out and it resembled 'It's a mad,mad,mad,mad world' a lot.

Good and funny one though it seems like it was made under the strong impression from 'Annie Hall'. Kinda plagiarism That's why I don't like it much.

Raging Bull ... I like boxing, but I'm usually not a big fan of boxing movies, or sports movies in general, but Rocky and Raging Bull are exceptions.

First of all I'm a big Scorcese fan. The realism he gets is extraordinary. And the cast, everybody from DeNiro and Pesci to Frank Vincent (Salvie) and other bit players just rang very true to me. I grew up in an environment not all that different than the one in this movie, and as a kid I was around the game, knew a lot of boxers and thought Scorcese nailed it. It's a hard movie to watch, not the violence in the ring, but the violence in the man. The wife beating, the time he goes after his brother, and just the emotional turmoil is hard for me to watch. It's one of those movies that I think is great, but I can only watch it once in a great while. That said, I think DeNiro's performance is one of the best ever captured on screen...

On a side note, Jake LaMotta himself is a very interesting and from what I heard troubled man. I know a guy who knows Jake personally, who spent a lot of time with him when he was a fighter, and while he likes the movie he says, and get this, It was the Disney version.

I enjoyed Flicka since I have a thing for horses.

The notebook made me smile. There's this movie called "just friends". The lead character ends up going to this movie with his girl, his mother and another guy who tries to get the same girl. It's "the notebook" And they pretty much ridicule the movie throughout.

Masterpiece. No doubt. One of the best movies ever. Joe Pesci is terrific.
There were some awesome scenes in 'Goodfellas'. Here is one of them.

***
Billy Batts:
You remember Tommy's shines? The kid was great. He made mirrors.
Tommy (Joe Pesci):
No more shines, Billy.
Billy Batts:
Come on. Tommy. We're only kidding. You can't take a joke? Come on.

Tommy is mad. Pause. And then Billy says, 'Now get the hell home and get your shine box!'
Tommy is pissed off.
Later on Tommy kicked Billy's ass for these words. And other guys (Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta) helped Tommy.
***

P.S. The soundtrack is drop-dead too
