maybe you can answer this for me? When did the black folks co-opt Scarface?
I came back home and he was all over that baggy, over-sized clothing that they like to wear and the household bric-a-brac which you can purchase at Dollar One too.

they're naturally drawn to the best movie soundtrack ever produced.

They can't help it. It's in their genes.

I agree Scarface is all violent and horrific and then we get some semi "it's gonna be ok, the bad man is dead now" ending where the dude gets his.  It doesn't seem to fit the whole mood of the film.

Then again movies today also stink at endings.  These film students need to be taught how to end their dang films.

de palma. I think the cast was pretty good, if not excellent. The story was a remake of the original scarface so all they did was update it a little (I saw the original and I was amazed at how much they stole from it). The original was done in the days when you couldn't glamorize crime, and films about criminals had to play out with them dying at the end. I think they could have done better than follow that precedent in the original.
