    "The Official" Al Pacino Appreciation Thread

    We have all sorts of weird and worthless threads, so time to make one for a truly deserving man -- Al Pacino.

    Pacino has graced us with his presence on film for the past fourty years and is still kicking out great films, not just as an actor, but director, screenwriter, and producer.
    He's basically the definition of a badass in almost all of his roles, such as Serpico, Carlito's Way, The Devil's Advocate, Any Given Sunday, The Recruit, and of course...

    The Godfather (Parts I, II, & III)

    Re: "The Official" Al Pacino Thread

    Al Pacino is the ish.

    I loved him in Scarface, The godfather movies, Any Given Sunday etc.

    He takes over any scene he is in.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    The Godfather and Scarface are legendary.

    But has anyone seen Donnie Brasco with Johnny Depp and Pacino? One of my favorite movies ever and Pacino gives an amazing performance and Depp is pretty damn good too. So underrated.

    Gotta give the love to Al Pacino. For a little guy, he kicks ass.

    His performance as the colonel in "Scent of a Woman" was incredible.
