Kill the Irishman

Unread postby Rat_Tail » Mon Jan 24, 2011 5:46 pm

Looks pretty intense. Has a big name cast as well.

Trailer has a cool shot of downtown without Key tower or the BP building. Although it looks like they left some of the other newer buildings in.



Was reading about Danny Greene's assasination (which took place in Lyndhurst) on Wiki. Kinda crazy that someone actually planted a bomb near his car.

You can read up more on it here:

Ton of people here actually read the book the movie's based on.

It beats Wiki and you can find it on Amazon or at most libraries in this area.

Yeah because being a Cowboys fan makes me so much different from you. And illiterate.

It clearly demonstrates you lack a sense of humor.

He's a racist. Racist's are incapable of having senses of humor.

Now Jersey Shore is racist.

Ziner's "joke" wasn't really funny.

Danny was blown up in the parking lot of my sisters orthodontist. Saw the cop tape and blast marks on the lot as a kid.

Looking forward to this one not only because its a local story, but for a strong cast as well. Also, I'm pretty sure I'm somehow related to John Scalish on my mom's side which is neat. Though its not something the family ever talks about.

Fabulous book.

Amazing how he was so cocky, and yet they had the hardest time getting rid of him. Looks like it should be a good movie.

The company I worked for had an old location in the Waterloo business district. So close to Danny Green's house that their windows blew out when they tried to blow him up. Rumor had it that he got blown from the second floor to the first, the reality was, he was saved by his refridgerator door. My boss was on a bowling team backed by him.

Anyway, to Lubbers point about arrogance and BALLS. Setting up a trailer on the very spot your blown up house used to be, and sitting in the front yard in a lawn chair. Brass.

Damned guy just errored in allowing his chick to make his dental appointment.

The other thing with the book is I just thought it would have been better had an experienced writer actually tackled it.

Porcello was an Eastlake cop and not a writer. It was just choppy in parts. I give him credit for telling the story and taking on the huge challenges of getting a book published though.

Yeah, great story, but the problem with the book is it's a pretty tough read, because it's not really written well. If I didn't have big interest in the subject from being around that area, I'm not sure I make it through the book.

It was filmed in Detroit, but they took landscape shots of Cleveland so that it umm.. looked like Cleveland instead of Detroit.

Not sure I should be given the state of downtown but I can't help but be offended by that. Detroit must have a ship visit their port occasionally and some lights on after dark.

Hrad to tell the dif between the river rouge area of DeeTroit and the Euclid / Cleveland border down-the-hill anymore.
