The Godfather Part III

Postby Dr. Duran Duran » Mon May 01, 2006 2:10 am

Ok, I need a little of the cafe's help here. I just finished watching the first two installments of The Godfather for the first time in my 28 years on this earth. Yes, it took me some time to finally get around to watching these films, but they were certainly worth the wait. Very amazing storytelling, acting and cinematograhpy. I have to say, they're every bit as good as people have told me they were.

That leaves me with only The Godfather Part 3 to watch in order to complete the magnificent trilogy. However, I've heard from many people who are avid fans of the first two films, that the third installment is rubbish and not worth watching. That said, why is the third Godfather film so poorly recieved?

it took me about 25 years to actually watch them...and i had heard horror stories about 3 as well.

it wasnt as bad as it was made out to be. wasnt great either, but it would be worth watching for closure

it's definately the least entertaining of the 3, but you should see just to finish off the trilogy. 2 is my favorite ;-D ;-D

it's not a bad movie. it's just bad comparatively speaking. you're comparing it with two of the finest films ever made...so that is tough. sofia copola is not good. al pacino is his usual overacting self. the story isn't as good. it's a so-so film. forgettable. if it wasn't a godfather.

I've heard that about Sofia Coppola. People often tell me she couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. Cool, well thanks for the info on the 3rd film. Sounds like I'll rent it just to complete the trilogy, if nothing more. ;-D

Basically, its not a terrible film, it just seems so bad because the first two were so good. It was possibly the biggest letdown of any sequel ever.

Like others have said about Sofia Coppola...she totally stinks up the movie...she should definitely stick to directing...I remember she was on with Jay Leno promoting "Virgin Suicides" and the audience booed her because of III. Andy Garcia is pretty lame too and the story just seems to take a weird turn. See it once and get it out of the way just so you'll never have to see it ever again!

Godfather III is an excellent film IMO. It gets a bad rap because I & II were great films and the fact that it released 16 years after the fact, surrounded by so much hype that it never stood a chance to satisfy fans. If it had released in 1976 I think it would have been received much more favorably.
