Creating Art & Sharing Love Since 2009

You talkin' to me?

If you recognize this quote, you're in the right place! In honor of Robert De Niro's birthday tomorrow (August, 17) we're sharing a very special list on the blog today: the top 7 movies to watch starred by the  actor (one of our favorites)... come check it out!

Actually, all of the films with De Niro are excellent (specially the ones with him and Al Pacino, like 'Righteous Kill' and 'Heat', and the ones directed by Martin Scorsese) and probably will be missing some in our list here, but we hope you enjoy it and help us celebrate his amazing career... 

1. The Godfather, Part II by Francis F Coppola (1974)

2. Taxi Driver, by Martin Scorsese (1976)

3. Ranging Bull, by Martin Scorsese (1980) 

4. The Score, by Frank Oz (2001)

5. The Mission, by Roland JoffĂ© (1986)

6. Meet the Parents, by Jay Roach (2000)

7. The Irishman, by Martin Scorsese (2019)

Ok, so this one couldn't be out of the post. I know it's not in a top 10 of best Robert De Niro's performances, but it also has Sly on it... come on, it's like Rocky Balboa x Jake LaMotta! Plus, Kevin Hart is fun... and Kim Basinger is still gorgeous! That's the movie I'm watching tonight for sure ;)
