You Can’t Please Everyone – The Godfather

One star Amazon reviews of classic movies, music and literature. Today we take a look at The Godfather:

When’s an editor when you need one? This movie is so long that I played it on my TV, drove across the state, and when I came back, it was still playing. Since when is a movie this long? Movies are supposed to be 1:30-2:00 hours long. Plus this movie is as boring as a trip to the doctor’s. No good violence, no hot sex scenes, and furthermore, it stereotypes Italians. The only decent movie in this series is The Godfather III.

“The Godfather” has an ugly consciousness and a mean spirit. I see no justification for it, thoroughly disliked it, and have tried to forget it.

The most over rated movie of all time. If you want to watch a good Al Pacino movie then watch one of his other movies.

I did indeed sit through all 57 hours of the Godfather and not only is it one of the most boring movies ever made it’s completely pointless garbage. I have no clue why it’s considered the greatest film ever made but then again most people are dumb so yea no suprise. The only good thing about this film is the music, if you haven’t seen it don’t buy into the hype that’s all it is hype… BUT if you have insomnia put this movie in you should be asleep within the first 30 minutes.

I finally saw this movie with my family and after an half hour I was thinking of running out in the middle of rush hour traffic, that would have been more exciting than watching this all the way through…but I watched it anyway.
Francis Ford Coppola is a good director but I think Apacoplypse now is a much better film than the Godfather…..I think mostly people just say its so great to go along with the crowd, but seriously I think this movie was too pretentious and boring
If you want a good movie about the mob, then go rent Goodfellas
That movie has all the violence swearing and drug use you could expect in a crime movie, except it has rich charaterizations, a hilarious Joe Pesci,a great storyline that will hold your attention to the very last frame, and an awesome 60’s and 70’s soundtrack that wont bore you to death like the music in the Godfather……This is a boring movie, please go rent Goodfellas

This movie was so violent I couldn’t believe it! On a scale of 1 to 10 on the violence in this movie I would give it a 9!

Long before the Sopranos, came the soap opera epic of the Spaghettis. They yell at the dinner table, they have affairs with each other’s wives, and they murder everybody in sight … especially each other! Yay!

This spicy meatball was cooked up by an unholy alliance: Puzo & Coppola — which translates (loosely) as Smell & Beret.

There goes the neighborhood.

This is a boy movie and I ain’t a boy.

Daily Dose of Ingersoll

All the sciences — except Theology — are eager for facts —
hungry for the truth. On the brow of a finder of a fact the laurel
is placed.

In a theological seminary, if a professor finds a fact
inconsistent with the creed, he must keep it secret or deny it, or
lose his place. Mental veracity is a crime, cowardice and hypocrisy
are virtues.

Robert Green Ingersoll – “Truth” (1897)
