    Part 3 was the worst. The incest in it freaks me the hell out, but the ending was touching. No pun intended.

    The book was better. I have been watching the Godfather since I was like seven. I am not sure if I love or hate it, but I know it like the back of my hand. I love the line, "Leave the gun take the cannoli."It just shows how removed they were from noticing anything off about the lifestyle they had created. The evolution and ultimate corruption of a simple survival based action. Sociologically it is a fascinating story.

    As far as Puzo goes, I loved The Sicilian. Turi!!!!!!!!!!!

    Brando's performance, not to mention that of many of the other actors is transcendent.

    But, to each their own.

    I love them but they were one of the first mobster movies I ever saw. That may color my opinion of them. Not to say there haven't been great mob movies since but they really are the gold standard all other movie gangsters try to imitate.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I personally liked Scarface better than The Godfather, but you'll never hear me say The Godfather is anything short of amazing.

    I think The Godfather had a certain level of integrity and character code the other mob movie's are missing.

    Part III was crap, the 1st two were great, and about the "catchphrases" you obviously dont know any NY Italians, all they DO is catchphrases.

    The best part of III was Pachino's silent scream at the death of his daughter. Other than that yeah...I ain't sayin notin.
