So many good ones, but I always laugh at Analyze This and Analyze That.

Also Ronin.

Was never a big fan of Raging Bull

Ronin, Heat, Casino are all incredible. I really enjoyed his performance in “Meet the Parents”—he nailed that role and you could tell he enjoyed playing it.

Oh man. I guess I’ll bring up his role in Jackie Brown. Not to mention Good Fellas.
No. Casino, is not better than Good Fellas. Fact. They are both great though.

Chiefly because it is the only film of his that I actually watched.

Um..I think Men of Honor would have to be my favorite.

@ragingloli…Heat with Sandra Bullock?

With Alpa Cino.

Alpa Cino! LOL! Pretty sure there is supposed to be an H somewheres in there!

Alpa Chino, with an H, is a character from the movie “Tropic Thunder”, which also stars Robert Downey Jr. in blackface, as “a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude”.

De Niro the person leaves me feeling a bit cold…yet De Niro the actor is fantastic in almost everything he’s ever done!!! I loved his vulnerability in the part of Leonard in the 1990 movie Awakenings with Robin Williams. He was intimidating as Max Cady in the 1991 CapeFear. I enjoyed him as Vito in 1974’s The Godfather.

Analyse this.

MollyMcGuire's avatar

I personally don’t like him very much. I think my favorite movies in which he played are Ronin and Cape Fear.

mazingerz88's avatar

Really admire him as an actor. Wish he had more gritty films like Taxi Driver and funny ones like Analyze This and That and that milk my nipple movie.

Taxi Driver, Heat

Honourable mention to We’re No Angels in which he basically took the piss out of his acting style.
