Little Caesar [VHS]

The Godfather Collection (The Godfather / The Godfather: Part II / The Godfather: Part III)
"In 1972, the movie based on the book written by Mario Puzo started the greatest saga I've ever seen, The Godfather. Based on stories of mobsters, all into 1 story, under 1 family, the Corleone Family."
Gangster Wars [VHS]
Gangster Wars [VHS]
"This was originally a mini-series on TV, they only sell a short diced up version of the mini-series, but still worth a shot, it seems to be the main backbone infulence of the movie "Mobsters"."
Scarface (Widescreen Two-Disc Anniversary Edition)

Traffik - Miniseries
Traffik - Miniseries
""Traffik", is the roots and infulence of the American released movie, "Traffic". Instead of the Cartels in Latin America, this is based on the traffiking of drugs throughout the Eastern Hesmiphere."
Bugsy
Bugsy
"Bugsy & Lansky both intrigue me. Theres also an old movie called "Lucky Luciano", but since I have yet to watch it, it doesn't make the list. Wish there was a movie for Frank Costello."
Mobsters
Mobsters
"This is almost a re-do of "Gangster Wars", though more action packed and with a little more Hollywood polish, its a tad bit more inaccurate then the already inaccurate story of "Gangster Wars"."

Mario Puzo's The Last Don
Mario Puzo's The Last Don
"Based on Mario Puzo's book, "The Last Don" has 2 parts to it, and is no where near as good as Puzo's "Godfather". Focuses on the West Coast activities of the mob in Hollywood. Worth a watching."

"I have yet to see "Gotti" so thats why I havent placed it on this list."
Lansky

"As I said about Bugsy, these movies both intrigue me, mainly cause you get some tad bit of info from movies such as "Mobsters" about their arrival, and the solo movies are more about their departures."

"A long history of America's fascination of mob movies let to the birth of a new era, a HBO mob drama show, titled the "Sopranos"."

The Wire: Season 1
"In 2002, David Simon proved once again that he is the Mario Puzo of street gangs. The Wire has recently finished it's 3rd season, and the 2nd season is being release in Jan 05'. WATCH THEM ALL!!!!!!!!"
Kingpin (Producer's Cut)
Kingpin (Producer's Cut)
"When NBC had "The Sopranos" & "Traffic" mate, "Kingpin" was born with a presents of it's ancestors "The Godfather" & "Traffik". This is an ok miniseries, it's worth a watch & it does build on you."
