Frank Sinatra-That's Life
I don't believe this movie came out perfect, but I wanted to get it online. I also tried voice overs, but the BG sound kept getting screwed up, so I had to settle with sub-titles.
There were loads of good editing points and loads of great dialogue and if you haven't seen Goodfellas then I'll swim the English Channel.
The Music really made the movie - and there's the problem. Lionhead have strict copyright rules as far as the music used goes... and while that sounds like I'm being a moodkiller - there have been films in the top five that have had the rug pulled out from under their ass because of 20 seconds of copyrighted music. Crediting the songs in the description isn't enough. They want money.
To quote Goodfellas. "Whattya wanna do - you wanna $%£# with Jimmy Conway? Just give him his money"
That's the way it is.
It's an innocent mistake.
Unless of course you have the copyright rights to the stuff you used in which case it may well be worth all the fives. In fact if you have the rights to Frank Sinatra's song I'll give you a six and apologise for any offence I caused you please don't have me shot.
Oh - one other thing - some of the guys seemed to be wearing suits from different eras so I wasn't sure which kind of decade this was set in... dunno if you meant that. It was a good film - just keep an eye on the FAQ about copyright - trust me on that.
