The Godfather

The Godfather ★★★★★

In both preparation of watching "The Offer" on Paramount and getting married to an Italian woman next weekend, it's time to watch the Godfather series for the first time since I've been in high school. And to no surprise, its still so great.

Not much to say that hasn't been said before. So many characters, so many families and yet it all flows so easily. By the time the opening wedding scene has ended, you are completely aware of all our major characters and the roles they play in this crime family. The tone is set from the first minute and all the small details all come back into play. Just a masterful cast, with Al Pacino giving such a spectacular performance. Such an easy 3 hours. Looking forward to rewatching Part 2, as I remember that one far less
