Reposting this From Timeandtide on the Bloggers United forum, as We weren’t allow to respond to it.



“Filmgoers have had a fascination with mobsters since before the advent of the talkies, all the way back to the first ever gangster film, The Black Hand, in 1906..Beginning in the.1970s, filmmakers started exploring the New York mafioso culture in classic movies like The Godfather, Mean Streets and Goodfellas. Now it’s John Travolta’s turn to “don” the overcoat in this year’s.Gotti, exploring the life, and death, of.Gambino family boss John Gotti. To get into character, Travolta spent time with the Gotti family and with Gotti’s personal effects, including several watches owned by the (in)famous mobster. Which got us thinking about other notorious gangsters and the timepieces they.owned throughout their lives … John Travolta, Piaget Ultra-Thin White Gold (diamond dial), owned by John Gotti, worn in the movie Gotti John Travolta takes his turn at playing notorious crime boss John Gotti in this year’s Gotti. Gotti Sr was famously known as the ‘Dapper Don’ for his always impeccable appearance and love of quality threads. Former New York gangster John Gotti Jr, son of the famous ‘Teflon Don’, acted as a consultant on the film, supplying Travolta with several of his father’s personal possessions, including overcoats, Brioni ties and Piaget watches. Tom…”

I wanted to point out the irony of Travolta the Breitling toolwatch hawk wearing Piaget diamonds in this flick.

He is an actor. He wears what he is paid to wear. If someone pays him $1M to be an Invicta spokesperson - he will wear an Invicta.
Which is why I never take any actors, celebs, etc seriously. They are good at entertaining - and I enjoy that. Anything else - and I have no interest in their opinions.

PS. Looks like Gotti is getting slammed by critics and viewers alike. 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. Even Deuce Bigalow scored 23%

Audience gives it 61%. Never trust the politically correct bubble critics smelling their own farts, they always have an agenda.

There's no irony. Just what has been selected for his character to wear.

It would be odder to see him wearing a Navitimer in the film.

Man, everything is just a liberal conspiracy, isn't it? Watch out for the feminist, socialist, tree-hugging movie critic Illuminati poisoning the minds of today's youth!
