    Re: One of the Greats has fallen

    I never did watch him in the gangster sitcoms but I have to wonder what made this one 'great'? Was he anything more than a guy who could look tough and appealed to little boys pretending that they were mobsters? A move star?

    Enlighten us on the 'great' part. A Mozart? A Beethoven? A dead US president likeness in some way? And the 'fallen' bit? Something more than just dead like ordinary people are prone to get from overeating that causes obesity?

    So dont get your panties in a bunch, I never said he wasnt any good. Just great is a little bit of a stretch.
    Okay. I just think Gandolfini is a talented enough actor that he should make it through a RIP thread without criticism of his abilities. Maybe that's just me.

    Is it o.k. to use abbreviations for profanity on this forum? Such as your use of stfu? Or how about if a profanity is used and it's not spelled correctly. The possibilities are unlimited?

    Yeah, it's probably just you. The point is, it's trying to portray him as something great and some of us want to know if he was anymore than an actor who appealed to kids with delusions of grandeur over being a gangster. Americans ya know! And the fallen bit! Didn't that used to get saved for the twoops?

    You seem to have anger issues over this. I don't get it, but being butt hurt over an actor you don't personally watch being called "great" is a little over the top.

    I'm working on my anger issues. It's been a long time since I've had to use my knife and they may let me out soon. But they told me that I'm not allowed to go around any actors and not to touch any knives. I think I can be good.
