Godfather was a good movie. Greatest movie of all time? I don't think so. In fact, I know so. Alot more movies have come out that were much more powerful. The only emotion i felt when watching godather was "the killings are kinda cool", which is not much more then any other action movie ive ever seen.
"I'm not going to be able to continue this conversation" "Why?" "Because I could lose my mind"
Holy goodnight. Is "The Godfather" the best movie of all time? No. Is it one of the best? Without a doubt. "The Godfather" and "Godfather II," in particular, present a drama of epic proportions, not unlike a Greek or Shakespearan tragedy. Watch these films in tandem, repeatedly. They are rewarding, far beyond "the killings are kinda cool."

My opinion is that Godfather Part II is the superior film, where Part I was a cinematic landmark in shock value but has dated b/c that is its central asset. As for DD-- no comment, this is just an imdb list.
Mute, I like "II" more myself, but I'm feelin' "I" more the last year or so, after years of watching the trilogy. Also, Twitchmonkey, start with "Godfather" 1 and 2, check out the masterful "Goodfellas" and wrap it all up with "Donnie Brasco." Here endeth the lesson. Peace.
