    Sequels? I think they went to far with numero three. Although that was the first one I popped in when I got the DVD set because it had been so long since I had seen it. It wasn't as bad as I remembered...just not up to par with the other two.

    I think the first one has transcended good and bad. It simply is. Everyone who is a fan of movies needs to watch it so they may gauge what makes a great cinematic experience. With out the Godfathers, you wouldn't have the Goodfellas and the Casinos and the Sopranos. It's a linchpin in our popular cultural.

    No he did not, but his rise within the family did take place under Vito - there's your titular character.

    They could still do it . . . MAYBE . . . if they could get DeNiro to convincingly play a late 40s Vito, some young buck could come in as Santino (Scott Caan? LOL ).

    Like I said, I do love it while some people deplore it.
    But at the same time I agree with you fully about it not being up to par. Although I do think the inclusion of Robert Duvall would have gone a long way . . .

    Yes, I'm reading that. I will probably give it a rental, but I'm not a big fan of gangster/mafia type flics. I'm always willing to give it a shot though. I'll let you know what I think when I get around to renting it.

    Just a quick question. In Part III Connie gives that candy to the guy at the opera. And during the opera she sees him die. Was the candy poisoned or did he just happen to die?

    Love the book. Hate the films.

    I heard recently that publishers are looking to find someone to turn the Godfather II and III films into books. Apparently they aren't looking for someone to be the next Puzo, but someone with their own unique style to continue the story.

    Just have to say it again - I hate the films.

    I saw this in a news article Thursday or Friday of last week: There is a deal being worked on right now for a fourth book, which most likely lead to another movie.

    yeah, it was poisoned cuz if you really watch her face its like she knows, plus she has her binoculars focused on him. why would she do that unless she knew he was going to die?

    anyways, the Godfather films are probably the best dramtic films of all time. I think all of them are told well and well acted, even the third one. but, i believe they go in order of which ones best and that sort. i think a forth one is posible but instead of just focusing on sonny's rise to the top, why not do another split story between sonny's rise and vincents rise, seein how they are much like the same type of hot-headed characters.
    Ah, good...here comes the Air Force with those new round planes.
