Who’s an animal? The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day’s mother’s an animal, ya’ son of a bitch!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

Ready for dose number two of your Scorsese double dip? Sure you are! And why wouldn’t you be? This is Raging Bull afterall.

While the Bushy-Eyed one doesn’t appear in today’s pic it’s still a great shot, showing a little bit of tenderness in a movie that isn’t exactly filled with tender moments. There’s a lot of macho strutting and alpha male aggressiveness in Raging Bull, but when you have De Niro in his prime I say bring it on.

Thanks once again to Pat Barnett for sending this one in!



If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at

Tomorrow’s pic is from one of the biggest Oscar snubs of this year, in the humble opinion of yours truly.

    Probably the most over rated movie in film history

    by Mel

    And don't get me's a decent flick, but I don't get the praise this movie gets. There are some very good performances, but the story is lame as fuck. It's just not interesting.

    It's a character study!

    by LouGarrick

    So the "plot" (if that's your concern) is secondary. Like "The Apostle", "There Will Be Blood" or "The Aviator" (to name a few). Don't miss the point of these terrific films by focusing on the plot.

    Brazil is not a character study.

    by FluffyUnbound

    You may as well say that Baron Munchausen is a character study.

    Is that J.J. Abrams?

    by lv_426

    Oh wait, it's De Niro.

    Good to see Scorsese back in form...

    by seansarto

    After the Deniro break-up, it took him a long time to hit stride with Dicaprio...I just saw "Shutter Island" and was pretty happy about it. It is a filmmaker's film.

    The most overrated movie in film history???

    by Billy_D_Williams

    Oh god here we go with the fucking trolls again... Lawrence of Arabia/Citizen Kane/It's a Wonderful Life/Psycho/Clockwork Orange is overrated...yeah, okay professor of fucking film studies...funny how the trolls never give a good reason why. I could understand if you said Raging Bull was overrated (it's not), but to say it's THE most overrated movie in history immediately destroys any argument you could have had. You want an overrated film? Try Forrest Gump. Raging Bull is a fucking titan of a movie. Stop writing checks your brain can't cash.

    DeNiro to Zero


    Was there ever a sharper career decline? The man was a GOD and with the very rare exception (Stone) he's now a career cameo man, best known to a whole generation as... Gaylord Focker's father-in-law.

    nasty in the pasty-Pesci ALWAYS looks pissed

    by phifty2

    Was watching Lethal Weapon 2 last night. He doesn't look pissed in that. Hard to believe the same guy did that, Home Alone, My Cousin Vinny, Goodfellas/Goodfellas 2: Casino. Pesci has a hell of a range.

    by BenBraddock

    You're kind of right, but it happened to other one time greats too.. eg Pacino, Hoffman... I guess that kind of creative energy can't be kept going indefinitely. They got older, too, and great parts are scarcer. But like someone above wrote, De Niro gets a lifetime free pass for all the crap he's done recently. As do Pacino & Hoffmam IMO.

    RE: Billy_d_williams

    by Chris

    Why is It's a Wonderful Life overrated? Because Clarence KNEW what happened to the bank money and didn't bother telling George. Because George gave up everything so everyone else could have a wonderful life. He wanted to travel the world and do all those amazing things and his brother kept him from doing them. I still think it's a great film but watching it, without blinders, it has some serious flaws.

    by my job sucks

    Well put sir, I know the good folk on this site have the right to air their own views on moves,but, saying that this film was the most overrated film in history is a bit of a bold statement when there is so many more films out there that deserve that accolade i'll see you're 'Forrest Gump' and raise it with 'The English Patient'.

    Re: "RAGING BULL Had A Boring Story ..."

    by ArmageddonProductions

    Um, you do realize it's a TRUE story, right, asshole? Were you expecting DeNiro to shave his fucking hair into a mohawk and blow off Pesci's fingers with a spring-loaded .45 semi-automatic or something?

  • Feb. 26, 2012, 10:05 a.m. CST

    Re: "It's a Wonderful Life", how are the points you raised "flaws" exactly?

  • Feb. 26, 2012, 1:01 p.m. CST

    Re: Syway moaters

    by Chris

    My point is that because he did everything for everyone else, he didn't get to have a ''wonderful life''. And since Clarence was trying to help George, would it have been so hard for him to say ''George, just for future reference, don't let Uncle Billy deposit the money. You should probably take care of that from now on'' But they didn't. Coupled with some of the anachonisms and some poor editing (Same guy jumps into pool twice, missing window, Etc.) I'm just pointing out that the movie isn't perfect and had flaws. It's still a great movie and I admit that I'm a bit jaded but with 60+ years of hindsight, all George's hard work would have been wiped out in Oct 1929.

  • Feb. 27, 2012, 10:59 a.m. CST


    by Billy_D_Williams

    If Clarence told George what happened to the bank money, he wouldn't have needed all the townsfolk to help him with payment, which justifies the ending of everyone coming over to show George how much he is loved...hence, It's A Wonderful Life...and George not traveling the world is showing that sometimes what you want and what you need are two separate things. It's a character arch. jesus christ man, what are you on?
