From Amazon.co.uk

Martin Scorsese's 1990 masterpiece GoodFellas immortalises the hilarious, horrifying life of actual gangster Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), from his teen years on the streets of New York to his anonymous exile under the Witness Protection Program. The director's kinetic style is perfect for recounting Hill's ruthless rise to power in the 1950s as well as his drugged-out fall in the late 1970s; in fact, no one has ever rendered the mental dislocation of cocaine better than Scorsese. Scorsese uses period music perfectly, not just to summon a particular time but to set a precise mood. GoodFellas is at least as good as The Godfather without being in the least derivative of it. Joe Pesci's psycho improvisation of Mobster Tommy DeVito ignited Pesci as a star; Lorraine Bracco achieves a career-defining performance as the love of Hill's life; and every supporting role, from Paul Sorvino to Robert De Niro, is a miracle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray Bliss! 16 July 2010
By Kenneth F. Mcara VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
In response to the previous reviewer, this is an extremely good transfer on Blu-ray. The colours are vibrant, the detail is excellent (particularly apparent in close-ups such as the shot of young Henry's face as he looks out of his bedroom window across the street to the cafe) and the lighting is gorgeous. The sound also is as good as you could expect it to be. In summary, the film looks like it was filmed this year, rather than 20 years ago.

Extras provided include 2 commentaries (one with cast - not including de Niro or Pesci - & crew, the other with Henry Hill himself and Edward McDonald, FBI), 3 documentaries, storyboard to screen comparisons and the theatrical trailer.

Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars 105 Reviews Duplicated over 3 Different Releases 27 May 2009
Format:DVD
Has anyone noticed that these 105 reviews (so far) are used by Amazon against 3 different versions of this movie? The 1999 & 2004 DVD releases and the 2007 Blueray release all share the same 105 reviews. How is one supposed to determine whether the 2004 version is better quality or no longer split on A and B sides of the disc? What is Amazon doing?

The only things keeping this movie from being known as Scorsese's crowning achievement are those other movies he made known as known as Taxi Driver and Raging Bull.
It is usually accepted that Raging Bull was the greatest movie of the 1980s. That's probably true. Goodfellas is possibly the greatest movie of the 1990s.
The thing that makes this movie so attractive to me is that Scorsese could have easily made another Godfather. Goodfellas isn't about Mafia Kings, or Crime Lords. This is about the lower levels of the mafia who don't have the glamorous lifestyle as "the kings". These are the people who are several levels down from Don Corleone. Hence, the tone of the movie is much more raw, and violent. Thus, this film is more similar to Scorsese's 1973 classic Mean Streets as opposed to Coppola's Godfather.
Scorsese pays attention to every little detail in this movie. He uses so many different aspects of cinema in order to turn what may be a typical scene into something that you always remember. Examples of this include the brilliant camera work through the back entrance of the nightclub ; freeze frames that are accompanied with interesting narrative ; great shifts in scenes that highlight twists in the characters' minds. It is as though Scorsese had a whole bag of tricks that he was picking from to put into this movie - and they all work perfectly.
The soundtrack is brilliant. In some cases it places an exclamation point on a dramatic scene, in other cases it is used to give the viewer a sense of a time period. Scorsese even shows the same scene twice from two different angles just to illustrate two different points of view...brilliant!
This is Scorsese's best film from the 1990s, even better than Cape Fear and Casino.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Amazing, a must see 25 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Before you start reading, I have to say this is definatley worth buying - essential viewing!

The film with its all star cast, great performances, Named 1990's best film by the Los Angeles, New York, and National Society of Film Critics, it garnered six Academy Award nominations and earned Joe Pesci an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

It's about a teenager who starts to help out the local 'gangsters' do errands and jobs. Like delivering things and giving messages to people. He grew up with them, they were like a second family - he saw nothing wrong with it.
He grew up to be one of them and the film is about a 30 year period (1955 to 1985) of his life.

He was happy, with friends, protected, what could possibly go wrong? You'll have to buy it to find out, its too difficult and great to explain - other reviewers may cover more of the story. I could go writing pages about this film and why its so good.

This is simply a great mob movie, it goes down with the classics such as Godfather. It is a film that the viewer will watch again and again. I have viewed this epic many a time, and each time is as if it were the first. One of the best movies ever made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the film, dislike the dvd. 17 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nothing wrong with the film however my problem is with the dvd itself. Whoever put the film onto disk for some reason thought it would be a good idea to have you turn the dvd over mid scene. This results in missing the rest of the scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars What do you mean i'm funny? Funny how? 14 Dec 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
BUY THIS!!! BUY IT NOW!!!
This has always been one of my favourite films, and as always, when you want to upgrade one of your best films to blu-ray, the question is always Will it be worth it?
Well, with Goodfellas it is! Without a doubt!
The transfer is perfect, it looks like a movie filmed in 2012. The sound is spot on and the disc is full of really interesting extras, including
- 3 Documentaries with the cast and crew
- Commentaries with Martin scorsese and Ray Liotta
- The trailer and more

Really happy with the buy, especially at this price, highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic film, blu-ray could have been better 6 Feb 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The film is classic Scorcese/De Niro and one of the best gangster movies ever made, but you knew that already :) This blu-ray release, whilst welcome, could have been better in the sound department. Be aware that all you get is a standard DD 5.1 soundtrack - no DTS-HD Master or Dolby TrueHD.

It is the performances that just about make this story acceptable, despite the highly unsavoury subject matter. Very violent, strong stomachs only.

Absolutely brilliant film, except for the fact it came on a two-sided disk. It's never fun having to turn the disc round and load it up about half way through the film.
