This is leading on from another thread...

who here has still not seen either Godfather 1, 2, or both?

Why not?

Explain yourselves, heathens :tongue:

also

1. do you intend to see it?
2. do you really want to see it but just haven't got around to it?
3. do you not care?

if you are truly a film lover, but have not seen one or both what is behind it...

i am just curious, considering their place in cinematic history...

and for thos who have seen it, feel free to discuss the film ( but put a *SPOILER* notation in if you do disclose anything important)

Agreed. Its pretty outrageous if you haven't seen it! I know both of my roomies have never seen it, with 3) being the predominant reason.

Haven't seen both of them... Why... Not sure. I have the DVD, I know it is almost a historic video, but yet it seems not something interesting for me.

i can understand folks who have never had the time, or are still too young and are still growing into their likes/dislikes...but considering the films' place in american cinematic history, i don't really get the people who don't care if they ever see it...

i can understand when there are folks who aren't serious film buffs don't want to watch something really old, like Casablanca or something...but seriously, what doesn't the Godfather have that wouldn't be worth seeing?

you have the DVD and have not watched it? :smile:

i think, part of what the Godfather is, is it is very *AMERICAN* and i do not mean that in a bad way...as it is the story of the 1st and 2nd generation of immigrants who live a different sort of american dream....

if you have the DVD, you really have to just clear out some time one night, and sit down and watch. You won't be sorry. :biggrin1:

That is quite judgemental. You like some movies and you dislike some movies. It isn't because they are so well known in the history of best movies that people have to see it. There are so many movies people won't see, but still worthed to see. So age and time doesn't matter.

but considering the films' place in american cinematic history, i don't really get the people who don't care if they ever see it...
Is it really that big of an issue... And is that "american" feeling so important.

i can understand when there are folks who aren't serious film buffs don't want to watch something really old, like Casablanca or something...but seriously, what doesn't the Godfather have that wouldn't be worth seeing?
Ask it the other way: what doesn't Casablance have that wouldn't be worth seeing?

I caught them both showing back-to-back on the AMC channel one Sunday afternoon so I took advantage and watched them.

Love them.

The first one is on right now on AMC for Vday. But I left the room. The audio was too quiet so I couldn't understand them. And I didn't come in at the very beginning.

Almost? :confused: Uh no, it actually is historic. :cool: Perhaps even epic. University cinema classes have studied it for decades.


Godfather & Godfather II
Godfather: [to Rocco who has killed Paulie in the car]
Peter Clemenza: Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.


Michael Corleone: There are many things my father taught me here in this room. He taught me: keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.

Hyman Roth: I don't trust a doctor who can hardly speak English.

No, Ive seen neither and have no desire too.

The theme is just not my thing so why waste all those hours?

Im not a film buff so the critical acclaim doesn't interest me.

I've seen the first hour or so of the first one. A glorified soap opera set in a mafia family. Since I've never really understood people's fascination with the mafia, it didn't appeal much to me. So I never finished it. Since I never cared about seeing the rest of the first one, I never bothered to watch the second one. I don't care that so many other people like them, but I get annoyed at being told that I'm wrong.

I also chafe at the idea that they are "cinematic history". They weren't made long enough ago to qualify. If you want to see cinematic history, check out "Little Caesar" and "The Public Enemy", which were the very first mobster movies from the early 1930s.

I must confess that this is the gaping hole in my otherwise fairly well rounded experience of classic cinema. The other side of that hole being Citizen Kane. :redface:

I have no good reason that I have never seen them - it's just one of those things. They were on TV last week but I work evenings, I missed the first showing of I but decided to watch II anyway, but as I said I was working and could not give it my full attention. I gave up after a bit because of all the Italian with subs - not a problem when I could look at the screen and read the subs - but I was mainly looking at my computer screen so I was missing half the dialogue. As I was saying to Hick last night as he was watching it - all I saw a lot of the time was men going 'EHH!!" at each other.

I will watch both some day. I do feel I am missing something by not having seen either.

What? You fool! They were made in 72 and 74!! That's aeons ago in cinema terms!! Of course they are cinematic history. Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (68) and A Clockwork Orange (71) are of the same era - both clearly have a place in cinematic history. Fucking Blade Runner (10 years later) is cinematic history. I could go on through the 80s and into the 90s. Don't be so bloody narrow!

I've seen the entire Godfather saga and none of it impresses me that much. Scenes are crowded and several scenes are poorly lit making it annoying with trying to see who is in the scene and then the dark suits with the brightness of the faces of the actors. Lighting and sound sucked. Seeing them once was enough.

A big reason the trilogy was so interesting to me was because there were so many accurate parallels to the organized crime syndicate that existed during that time.

The 'commission' of the heads of the Five Families, the pecking order/organizational composition of the Family, and the process by which decisions were made...etc., also the remarkable brilliance and foresight/diplomacy that was demonstrated by the leaders of each family.

Organized crime is so firmly entrenched into the history of our nation, it adds more depth to the significance of the film/trilogy. From the conception of Las Vegas to the Bay of Pigs to the assassination of JFK/RFK, organized crime has been at the forefront.

Just look at the cast: Duvall, Pacino, Deniro, Brando, Caan, Keaton...et al. Remarkable film(s).

yeah they were showing them yesterday...thati s why i started the thread...but watching them on AMC sucks...they are censored, most of the graphic violence is taken out and the commercials ruin them.

at least you are aware that this gaping hole is your only true imperfection MB :wink:

Exactly right, MB...The Exorcist(73), Chinatown (74), The Sting(73), Jaws (75) Taxi Driver (76) Apocalypse Now (79) Alien (79) MOnty Python and the HOly Grail (75) and many many more!!!!!

the 70s was perhaps the sea-change moment in cinematic history...i would highly recommend the documentary "A decade under the influence"...the 60s had seen Hollywood become stale, formulaic, nonsense...the late 60s and 70s brought a surge of innovation and talented young directors (Scorcese, Coppolla, Spielberg etc.) and avant garde cinema influenced by the French New Wave...it brought edgy, talented, new actors, who were not the classic glamour stars of the past...these were edgy, rebellious types, who were intrigued by gritty, dangerous, edgy roles...Pacino, DeNiro, Nicholson, to name a few...

the 70s was one of, if not the most vital times in cinematic history! It reinvented and reinvigorated the movie industry and the idea of film itself.

I've seen both and own both on DVD. I love the whole evolution of Michael from man to monster. I always enjoyed any scenes that Michael had with Kay. From flat out lying to her gullible ass, to closing the door on her, to the whole abortion scene and closing the door on her again. Those were always the best acted and most emotional/compelling to me. The family drama always outweighed the 'business' stuff for me.

I've never completely seen the third one because i've just heard so many bad things..

the third one is atrocious...you are not missing anything...it is just a poor attempt at the completion of the circle...and it fails pretty miserably on every level.

this is the only movie where the sequel is superior to the first movie. the scene in havana with the senator and fredo going to the sex show is surprisingly accurate. i have cuban relatives that saw the so called superman and can verify that he was truly hung like a farm animal. there have been some other posts elsewhere about the superman of havana before if anyone has any more info about him i would be interested

both of these movies are at the top of my all-time favorites list. I have also read the book The Godfather and there is quite a bit in it that is not in the film. In the book Sonny Corleone has an gigantic cock( which is made reference to in the film during the opening wedding scene) and his mistress had a huge vagina and can only be sexually fulfilled by Sonny. After his murder she moves to Vegas where she meets the "family" doctor (an gynecologist and abortion doctor) who surgically downsizes her womanhood. She then falls in love with the doctor.
