A Most Violent Year is out soon, which got us thinking about mob movies. Specifically, Goodfellas, and how good it is (right?) To get you thinking too, here are 7 lesser-known facts about Goodfellas (SPOILERS)! Subscribe: http://goo.gl/9AGRm
What did you think? Did you know any of these bits of trivia already? Did we inspire you to bring out some of your favorite Goodfellas quotes from the depths of your memory (hopefully we didn’t inspire you to imitate any of the characters’ other behavior - that would be a lot of felonies).

Inevitably, in the hodgepodge of life that goes into creating a movie, a few strange and interesting things happen here and there that are rather fascinating little tidbits of information. Every Monday starting in 2014, tune in to Cinefix for lists of things we find out that you (probably) didn't know!
My favorite movie I have a glass framed poster of Goodfellas in my living room. I could not believe it my Millennial friend did not know what movie it was! The greatest gangster movie ever. He better be ready next time he comes by he really has no choice!
My favorite movie. Scorcese's mom and pops played awesime scenes. For some reason they stood out to me. The old guy making that awesome sauce and the traditional older Italian mother. I knew a few that reminded me of her. Sweet old catholic ladies who made bomb pasta sauce that would send you to heaven. Thank you Martin !!!
Actually, Tommy got killed because when Henry and Jimmy got sent to prison, Paulie started having an affair with Karen..When Paulie went away for the contempt beef, Tommy tried to strong arm rape Karen, Paulie found out and dropped a dime to John Gotti, who was connected to the Gambino family ( Paulie, etc were connected to the Luchese family) People had suspicions that Tommy was involved in killing Batts and Jeroth, so when it was confirmed, a crew led by John Gotti snagged him...Tommy was not killed by a single shot to the head, Gotti went to work on Tommy, they found Tommy's remains in three trash bags along the east rive
It would help if you actually did your research: that’s not a mugshot photo of Tommy DeSimone at 03:00.
That’s a photo of Joe Iacobacci (Cleveland mafia, 1990s)
“Now go home and get your f**ken shine-box!”

That meatball scene reminds me of my Italian grandmothers at Xmas... except its raviolis... she made the most amazing 100% authentic Italian Raviolis... It was always the hit of Xmas. And it was just like that, always very loud and boisterous at the Italian family, I mean you walked into the room and it was like a shouting match was going the whole time and laughter etc... my Dad and my Uncle ripping on each other, seeing who could out-class the one this year... the mirror opposite at my mom's mom, where it was quiet and you would only hear a glass or a fork go clink, clink... I have such great memories as a kid, too bad my adulthood sucks...
Here's one you missed, Frank Vincent who gets the beating as Bill Bates also too a massive beating from Joe Pesci in Raging Bull.....................but don't cry for old Frank Vincent because he gets Pesci back back in Casino when he beats him to death in the corn fields
