Goodfellas’ Cast and Crew Reuniting for 25th Anniversary Screening

Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas won just one Oscar (for supporting actor Joe Pesci) at the 1991 Academy Awards. (The year’s Best Picture winner was Kevin Costner’s Dances With Wolves.) But the film seems to grow more popular and critically acclaimed every year, to the point where it’s now considered one of Scorsese’s masterpieces, one of the best movies of the 1990s, and perhaps the best gangster film ever made without the word “godfather” in the title. Astonishingly (at least it feels astonishing to an old man like me), it’s been 25 years since Goodfellas made its debut in theaters, an anniversary Scorsese and his cast and crew will celebrate next month with a 25th anniversary screening and reunion at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.

Aurora Borealis Lights Up West Michigan Skies [Video/Photos]

A coronal emission from the sun set off an Aurora Borealis light display seen over most of the northern tier of the United States -- including Michigan -- late last night into this morning.
