didn't want to like this guy early in his career, but i was sold after "gangs of new york" and "catch me if you can"

He was actually quite talented as a kid (literally) even to be honest. Did good in a film with Johnny Depp and another with Robert De Niro.

Pacino, prob best known for The Godfather, Dog Day Afternoon, Scarface, Any Given Sunday, Carlitos Way and a bunch of others where himself/the film were critically acclaimed and received Oscar nomination.

De Niro, prob best known for The Godfather 2, Taxi Driver, Deer Hunter, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Cape Fear, Casino, etc.

Both have been in mostly below below average-average films from 2000-present day, although De Niro has been recently Oscar nominated for Silver Linings Playbook, a film I really want to watch.

For me personally though, De Niro.

^ How could you forget Scent of A Woman by Al? That's a classic.

Pacino & De Niro were both great together in Heat as well (GREAT ASS!!!), but since I'm a bigger De Niro than Pacino fan, I'm gonna' add some other titles to the ones you mentioned that I've seen and enjoyed as well in no particular order: Shark Tale, A Bronx Tale, This Boy's Life (the one with Leo as a kid), The Fan, Cop Land, & Limitless.

Others I have yet to see, but need to and hear are great: Mean Streets, Once Upon A Time in America, The Untouchables, Midnight Run, Awakenings, & Backdraft, & heck probably more I'm unaware of so I'll throw an etc.

You 2 don't know jack squat!

Pacino > De Niro.

Back on topic. I've always liked DiCaprio. a big basketball diaries fan.

I've always thought of Pacino for the most part as the more intellectual type of the two and De Niro the more in your face violent, intimidating, and hardcore.

Yeah, gotta' give him his props for that one. That was an extreme role to say the least and for him to take it on at the age that he was made it that much more impressive. He sure convinced me he was a druggie.

Goodfellas alone(to me) has been better than anything from Pacino. My fave Pacino is Scarface btw.

My fave Dicaprio has got to be The Departed. Catch Me If You Can is 2nd.

Haven't seen A LOT of the movies these 3 dudes have been in though. Like Heat, Scent of a Woman or Basketball Diaries.

It's all matter of opinion.

^Yep.

Btw, still haven't watched The Godfather, and it's regarded as one of the best ever made and perhaps Pacino's best. So, that might top it for all I know.
