I have a 7.1. You're a dummy head!

1) I love all the talk about "definitive" editions when these things come out, as if there won't be a way better version on a new platform in 10 years.

2) I think the last "definitive" DVD set included outtakes from the sanitized-for-TV version, which was awesome. I remember watching it on USA sometimes, where "this city is like a big chicken, just waiting to get plucked."

Also, Scarface is the greatest non-porn gift teenaged boys ever received.

SCARFACE IS NOT A GOOD MOVIE. UGH. THE ONLY GOOD THING IT ACOMPLISHED WAS GTA VICE CITY.

I DISAGREE WITH YOUR SUBJECTIVE OPINION. 10 BILLION YOUNG MALES CAN'T BE WRONG.

ADDITIONAL POINTS:

1. SCARFACE IS ONE OF THE FEW THREE HOUR MOVIES THAT ACTUALLY NEEDS ITS THREE HOURS AND USES ITS TIME WELL. MONTANA'S RISE AND FALL IN THAT CRAZY SETTING SEEM TOTALLY BELIEVABLE. THERE ARE SOME PLOT ISSUES: THE UN HIT THING WAS KIND OF CRAZY, AND THE QUASI-INCEST SUBPLOT WAS WEIRD.

2. BECAUSE OF THE QUALITY OF THE STORY AND THE ACTION, SCARFACE CAN BE ENJOYED SINCERELY OR IRONICALLY. GENERALLY MOVIES ARE ONE OF THE OTHER.

3. AND OH IS IT CLASSIC IRONICALLY, BECAUSE: WHEN SCARFACE MISSES, IT MISSES HUGE, WHICH IS WAY BETTER THAN NARROWLY MISSING.

4. BUT I DIDN'T EVEN TO MENTION ALL THAT. YOU'RE WRONG BECAUSE SCARFACE GAVE US ONE OF THE CHOICEST MONTAGES THE 80s HAD TO OFFER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8g__x6ExM8

@CC: YOUR ARE SO WRONG THAT YOU'VE TRANSENCED PHYSICS AND YOUR WRONGNESS HAS TURNED INTO HIGGS POSSON PARTICLES.

1. SCARFACE NEEDS TO BE EDITED DOWN BY ABOUT AN HOUR. MY ADHD ATTENTION SPAN CANNOT HANDLE THREE HOURS OF AL PACINO FAILING AT A CUBAN ACCENT. MAKE THIS A 120 MINUTE FILM AND WE CAN TALK.

2. SCARFACE CANNOT BE ENJOYED; ANY SUBSEQUANT DERIVTATIVE STYLES OF ENJOYMENT ARE FALSEHOODS AND SHOULD BE ABORTED BY HIMMLER.

3. THIS IS ACTUALLY CORRECT. BECAUSE SCARFACE MISSES BY ABOUT THE RADIUS OF THE NGC 2770 GALAXY .

4. THE BEST MONTAGE IN THE HISTORY OF MIAMI-BASED MONTAGES IS THE "IN THE AIR TONIGHT" SEQUENCE FROM MIAMI VICE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rnpguVTsac
