About seven years ago I became a huge fan of 'Scarface'. A friend of mine had it on VHS, and upon my first viewing of the film, I was so impressed that I rushed right out to get it for myself. Years later, a Limited Edition DVD was released, and me and that same friend went out on release day to purchase it.
That DVD was watched a hell of a lot, and it was lent around quite a bit too, to the point that the cardboard sleeve got a bit ruined, and the disc became scratched. So, again, I re-purchased the film.
I slowly started buying tons of Scarface merchandise, including Tony Montana figures, and a Limited Edition Cadillac Model from Scarface.
But in recent years, my interest in Scarface has dropped. Now, the film is still just as good as it has always been. I saw the film again a few weeks ago and continued to love it just as I used too, but there has been a problem with the film lately.
People have responded to the film in the wrong way; all these so-called "gangsters" these, street-thugs who have seen the film one too many times, and believe that the moral behind the film was to be as violent, and drug-induced as possible.
That is NOT the moral of the film.
But they have stomped upon my love for this film. So, I've decided to leave off watching the film, and ignore these people, so that upon watchign Scarface again, on Blu-Ray, and getting this Collectors Edition Cigar Box, I will enjoy it as I once did.
(P.S. I decided not to stereotypically throw in all the famous quotes from the film in this review, because frankly...it's been done to death)
