Both the Godfather movies* are pretty much stop-and-watch. We’ve seen them so many times, it’s easy to kind of just pickup from any point.L.A. Confidential, is one of those movies for me. As is Godfather II.
No, I must say that I have never sen that particular edit.Both the Godfather movies* are pretty much stop-and-watch. Weve seen them so many times, its easy to kind of just pickup from any point.
There are so many iconic moments, I tell myself, Oh I just want to see where Michael confronts Fredo, OK, now I just want to see ... and then pretty soon Ive watched the whole movie. Funny enough, we own them on Blu-ray (the beautiful re-masters), so its not like we cant watch them any time.
Have you even seen the edit with I and II presented together and also chronologically ordered? (i.e., the flashback in II played before the modern events of I). It was on FMC/AMC at some point, confused the heck out me
* I only acknowledge Godfathers Part I and II as Godfather canon
Can't quarrel with that list, as it coincides with a few of the movies on my own list that I would stop and take a fresh look at.Until very recently, Shawshank Redemption and Godfather I/II.
Other people have told me the same thing.
