i'm like 95% sure that i have not seen these movies before or maybe i did & they were so boring i blocked them out? either way here is a half assed review of all 3.i love francis ford coppola's movies like Bram Stoker's Dracula, Cotton Club, & Peggy Sue Got Married but i find gangster movies to be boring. the only one i can stand is Casino because sharon stone is such a well dressed baddie.
ok.lets get to it
the godfather #1 3 hours long,huh? this had better be good. 2 minutes in & i am already annoyed by marlon brando's stuffed cheek whisper voice.its weird how naturally good looking he was & how hard he fought against it(like johnny depp now).
i dont get it, is fredo supposed to be retarded? the wardrobe & hairstyles are really bad.very 1970s when i'm guessing its taking place in the 1950s? all those afros & disco makeup styles are distracting.i didnt even recognize diane keaton.whoever picked out that wig & shaved her eyebrows must have really hated her.
halfway through & i'm not seeing why this is considered such a classic.i get it was based off a best selling book but this is pretty boring & idgaf about any of these characters. all this anti black stuff isnt cute either. 3 hours & still could not come up with a better ending than that,huh?
its disturbing how they only call him "tom hagen" not just tom.the hair/costumes are much more authentic. am i supposed to know what is going on? i guess not.whatever. its annoying, all this italian dialog with no subtitles. i'd rather watch a movie starring fredos wife deanna than this although young al pacino is looking like a snack.
speaking of snacks, young robert deniro was a full meal.this movie is VERY boring. i'm loving this abortion monologue,too bad diane keaton never gets to play dramatic characters.she's basically an extra throughout the 1st movie until the last 40 minutes of the 2nd.again the ending sucked.i'm really regretting watching these movies.what a waste of time
ok so here's where it gets "good".hopefully this will be interesting.george hamilton is such a fox,i wonder why he was never a bigger star.al pacino's hair is too 1990s, the grey reminds me of christmas tree flocking,super distracting.its set in 1979 but all the hair/costumes are from 1987.good job? its weird he thought sofia coppola could be a movie star.without actual talent you need looks & she just doesnt have it(or enough charisma that you forget you are looking at an unattractive woman).i wonder why he would set his daughter up for failure like that.
this movie is so bizarre.is the diabetes scenes really necessary? as usual i have no idea what is happening or why.maybe that is for the best.i am bored & this opera scene is going on way too long. the end of mary may be one of the funniest things ive ever seen.
all 3 movies were SO boring & bad,i have no idea why the first 2 keep being put on best movie lists
