1. The Departed (2006)
Who the fuck are you?!

I'm the guy who does his job, You must be the other guy


With all of Scorsese's absolutely masterful work he has presented to us in the past, it's difficult for some to believe that I find this one to be his best. It may be a little more new school for some people, having more blood and violence than any of his other films, but it comes very naturally, and goes with the flow perfectly to really get you into the story.

Scorsese film's have always had amazing acting, but The Departed has a more powerful cast, and they all work perfectly with each other, and individually they are all flawless. The Departed is an extremely violent, yet realistically portrayed take on the mean streets of Boston, packing an absolutely fantastic soundtrack, and enough witty dialogue and entertainment for all to enjoy. Martin Scorsese's finest hour!

2. GoodFellas (1990)
Now go home and get your fuckin shine box!

I get blown away each and every time I see this masterpiece. It's depicts the true story of gangster Henry Hill, and his rise to the top. The cast is wonderfully powerful, with Liotta, De Niro, Pesci, and others pretty well known. They are PERFECT, and one of the tons of reasons why I can't get this film out of my head. The music is terrific, the story is extremely enthralling, with enough memorable moments to fill a swimming pool. It's Scorsese at the very top of his game, just AMAZING! I'm starting to have second thoughts whether this deserves a number one spot or not.....

3. Casino (1995)
One can't help but notice many similarities between this, and Goodfellas, and that's exactly correct, but why not? Scorsese is at his best doing that genre. This film just lacked the pacing and script that the above entries contained. It grows relatively tiresome after a bit, then starts to pick up. It's still a Scorsese masterpiece in it's own right though.

4. Shutter Island (2010)
Scorsese finally takes on a completely different genre, and strikes gold with it! It's a mystery/horror/thriller and an excellent one at that. As usual the soundtrack is great, and of course DiCaprio doesn't disappoint. Not to mention a great (but nowhere near his finest) storyline. It got almost too supernatural for me, but other then that this movie is a gem.

5. The King of Comedy (1982)
WOW! what a film! De Niro proves why he should be considered the best current actor bar-none, playing a completely different role but clearly one of his finest performances ever. The King Of Comedy is a black comedy that mixes human's desire for fame, and just how disconnected from reality people can get. Not to mention the best part; Robert De Niro plays one hilarious crazy man, and maybe some more comedic roles in the future?

7. Taxi Driver (1976)
You can't deny how good this movie is. Robert De Niro puts up a performance of a lifetime, and it's Scorsese at the peak of his career. It's extremely powerful, it's brutal, the score is excellent, and the dialogue is very quotable. Not to mention how perfectly paced the story is, and every character is very in depth. The classic De Niro/Scorsese collaboration that is yet to be surpassed, in any decade thus far.

8. The Aviator (2004)
Greatly enthralling, mostly in part to Leo's fantastic performance. Howard Hughes was a troubles genius, and from what I've heard, Leo was dead-on. In may lag in certain respects, and the material may not apply to all viewers, but when you've got Scorsese directing, and DiCaprio acting this damn good, those little bumps seem very much nullified.

The Legendary Martin Scorsese's work as a director, listed from best to worst. However, I still haven't seen a movie from him that's been anywhere near bad.
