    God, I spelled "you're" wrong...how embarressing....

    My name is Jess from Minnesota!
    I love to draw, go for walks, writing, and watching movies! Mostly Mob/mafia movies which are my FAVORITE! Which also inspired me to WRITE a series about the mob. So if anyone out there likes the mob or is writing about it too, let me know!!! I'd love to talk with you! :)

    omg, HELL YES!!!
    Well, my favorite gangster movie is Goodfellas. And you know how Martin Scorses says Casino is practually a sequel to Goodfellas. Good movie. I LOVE Joe Pesci.

    I liked the untouchables but it seemed to be more about the police who went after the mob/Capone than the actual mob. Where as I just like mob movies that are about the mob. You know, about them and their story. I loved Deniro in the film though. He like, made it. It should've been all about him. He was fantasic as Capone.

    What are your guy's favorite mob movie?

    Hello Jess, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Organized crime dramas aren't really my thing, but writing transcends genre.

    If you haven't explored the site yet, you should probably do so soon. Newcomers often gravitate to the Lounge, the Word Games, or the Review Room, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners. Remember to check out our FAQ as well!

    As for the Review Room, new joiners often wonder why we do things a bit differently on this site than on other writing sites. We emphasize reviewing as a critical writing skill. Training your eye by reviewing other people's work helps you improve your own writing even before you present it for others to see. Therefore, we ask members to review other people's writing before posting work of their own. The Review Room forums on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work (and on that note, please only post each item for review in one Review Room forum). See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
