Movie Review

Gangs of New York-

Another movie that I had never gotten around to seeing. I had always meant to, but movies with long running times need for me to be in the right mood to sit down with them.

That I was able to pick this up on blu ray for $5, it was the perfect reason to finally watch it.

It's not a perfect movie, but it looks amazing, it as some great performances and it sparked my curiosity and made me admit my complete ignorance of American history. While I have read of some of the artistic changes that were made to true history in this movie, It is still pretty crazy even if only 50% of it were true.
