    Talkin in that decade only, not whole career. I think Al Pacino as Scarface was the best acting of that decade. Went hard imo. Raging Bull was good but the Rocky Films were more fun and awesome. Nothing against Ragin Bull though. Did you guys know there was a Scarface novelization that's now going for $900? Are you kidding me? Ain't nobody paying that for some damn books biotch.

    Tony Montana was awesome, but you have to give it up to Deniro. Both movies are A++

    Based on huge posters hanging in 20-something single men's apartments, Scarface.

    Why specifically compare these 2 movies to each other? I liked Pacino in Dog Day Afternoon the best and De Niro in Cape Fear.

    Both great movies. Need to revisit Cape Fear, Juliette Lewis was fine in that one.

    I think I’m one of the few people that think Scarface is overrated and I am a film junkie to say the least. Pacino was great as TM, I’m just meh on the movie.

    Ive seen the movie once and I’m pretty sure that was it. No interest and I love early Pacino.

    Yeah he definitely made the movie with his insane performance. He dialed it to 11 on that one. Sometimes even comical with how over the top it was.

    Pacino's performance in Scarface was a bad joke. DeNiro was brilliant in Raging Bull.

    I feel you on that, I think that’s why I like it more. Pacino was funny as hell, with the accent and all.

    Manny should have been Scarface. There I said it, Mayne.
    I lost count how many times I've watched the Scarface movie. I've seen the original one a couple of times too.
    Thank you Howard Hughes. Both don't happen without him. You the real 'hossa'. You know what a 'hossa' is?
