Most mob movies are based upon real life occurances.....they are somewhat historical in that nature.....you cannot say the same thing about "Terminator", "Predator", et.al. I perfer that to those kind of films...that's just me though. I'll take the movies about the mob and any offensive comedies you got and you can have your sci-fi, horror and fantasy films...deal?
As for so-called "popular" music.....that dreck that most radio stations carring Rick Dees are programming now is nothing more than a set formula devised in coporate boardrooms and aimed at certain demographics for max profits...it's business
not art. It works largely because the little mall rats are limited in what they're exposed to....going to college usually
takes care of that if they have any real interest in it to begin with.
