    You did not state your own opinion but want to know if I agree or disagree. Does not compute.

    Having not seen any of the Godfathers I'm not able to comment.

    I feel obliged to since they're so famous, even though generally speaking I hate that kind of movie.

    Ugh, Dondrei. Everyone has to see 'em at least up through the Horse Head scene...that's just...awesome in so many ways. You'll understand when/if you watch 'em...

    Also: The LotR movies...not a great analogy. They kinda sucked...you should never get a woman to dress up as a Male Elf and shoot things...that was a woman, right? Was it just me?

    Also having not seen The Godfather, I can't judge it one way or another.

    Of course I can just open my VHS version and watch it right now...oh right I don't own a VCR anymore...damn it, I can't even watch Das Boot or Schindler's List anymore either...


    There's a DVD version of it, right?

    Wasn't it in the 2nd or 3rd one? Jeez, I haven't seen these in like, 5 years, do I need to see 'em again?

    P.S: Why the hell are you guys up so late? I know it's because I'm both a bum and a lazy bastard...what's your excuse?

    My excuse is living in the magical land across the world where it's 5 in the afternoon.

    I've seen that scene of course, just not the movie.

    5:00 PM. Jeez...I need to get some sleep so that I'm awake at that time here...

    Ignore the off topicness...hrm...
    What's it called when you go off-topic in an Off-Topic forum...on-topic? Are they like Negatives? Or is it more like i. i = sqrt(-1), i^2 = -1, i^3 = -sqrt(-1)...different things...

    Okay, time to leave. When I lapse into inane math analogies, I know I need some sleep or some food, or both.

    I start work at 3:00 in the afternoon and I didn't get up till 12:00 noon today. There's no possible way I could sleep until at least 2:00-3:00 in the morning even if I drugged myself.

    What if you put the Godfather movies on a conveyor belt?

    Disagree. Arguably the best Rings movie was the 3rd one while easily the worst of the Godfathers was the 3rd one. So, while Rings gets better as it goes, Godfather dwindles down at the end.

    Why? Just because they are both considered very good?

    Haven't seen the Godfather either, don't ever plan to. It's not like there's anything in it that I haven't heard about all of my life.

    No the horse head was in the first like 15 minutes of the first movie, i saw it last night at the movie theater. First time i saw it in a LONG time.

    But the most ridiculous reason to not like a movie without seeing it is "Oh, i dont like it because everyone likes it." Give it a shot, its a classic. Scarface, that was a ****ing AWESOME movie, but it just got blown way out of proportion by the media. Godfather is along the same lines, but not blown out of proportion at all.

    And the reason i made the comparison is because LOTR is an epic story, and the Godfather is pretty damn epic for a mafia movie. Its an amazing trilogy.

    The Godfather is one of my favorite film and book. The 1st was the best and dealt with the current mafia life, the 2nd dealth with the originins of the mafia family, and the 3rd one was garbage.

    Just remember that both 1 and 2 each won tons of Academy awards back in the days where Academy award films were blockbusters. The ending to 1 is probably the best ending I've ever seen.

    And yes, they were better than the Lord of the Rings series.
