Movie Mondays: Gangs of New York

This weeks Movie Monday post is about the movie Gangs of New York. I am so excited to write this post. I really like this movie! I got to see part of this movie Saturday evening but didn't get to see it all because of putting my son to bed. I love this movie though, so I thought it would be perfect to write about! The basic plot of this movie is about Amsterdam Vallon (Leonardo DiCaprio) seeking revenge on Bill 'The Butcher' (Daniel Day-Lewis) for killing his father, Father Vallon (Liam Neeson) when he was a young boy in a gang fight. He goes back to the 5 points in New York to do so. At that time, the city is ran by street gangs and the most powerful one was The Natives who were led by Bill The Butcher.  Along the way he meets Jenny Everdeane (played by Cameron Diaz) who is a pickpocket. In the end Vallon kills Bill and gets his vengeance. He is buried next to Vallon's father. This is such a good movie. I love movies set in this time frame too. Seeing how life was back then in America and I love imagining how it would feel living in that time frame. Although I'm sure being black and being a woman it would not be good for me, but I still like to think about it, lol.

This is such a good movie. I love watching it every time i see it. I tried to see if it was going to come on again later or maybe even today but it isn't coming on. So I definitely need to buy this movie so I can get my fix. Actually since my son has daycare tomorrow I think i might go out and try to find this movie. It is definitely worth watching for anyone who hasn't seen it, or even for someone who has seen it!! Its so worth watching. And something about Bill the Butcher...I don't know what it is.....
