Films That Raised Me – Bad Boys

Young Sean Penn ain’t take no shit as he exercised his G @ an early age following magnetic performances in Taps (1981) and Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982), young actor Sean Penn sealed his reputation as one of his generation’s most gifted performers with his gritty star turn in Bad Boys (1983), an entertaining tale of teen hoodlums in juvenile lock-up. Penn plays Mick O’Brien, a Chicago street tough who’s planning on ripping off drug dealer Paco Moreno (Esai Morales). When the scam goes bad and his partner Carl (Alan Ruck) is slain, Mick flees from the cops in his car and accidentally runs over Paco’s little brother, killing the boy. Sent to juvenile hall, Mick encounters a violent prison society run by the murderous trustees Viking (Clancy Brown) and Tweety (Robert Lee Rush). After Mick defends himself by savagely beating Viking, he becomes the facility’s new top dog. On the outside, however, Paco seeks revenge by raping Mick’s girlfriend J.C. (Ally Sheedy). Enraged, Mick escapes with the help of his brainy roommate Horowitz (Eric Gurry), but Mick is captured by compassionate guard Ramon (Reni Santoni). When Paco is arrested and unwisely sent to the same jail holding Mick, a showdown between the two old rivals is inevitable.

Films That Raised Me – Carlito’s Way

Trailer of Carlito’s Way made by Brian De Palma in 1993. (Al Pacino, Sean Penn)

This movie informed as well as enforced certain beliefs that ran rapid among street dudes or those that aspired to be. It is the story of Carlito and things that he experienced upon leaving the game and having to make room for the new breed of what he once was! It’s deep and I strongly suggest you view if you ain’t seen it yet!
