The Godfather drags on a little imo, and you can't beat the ending in scarface.
Depends on the mood I'm in.
Generally speaking though -- Godfather, it's a masterpiece.
The Godfather ... the ending in Scarface is just too unbelievable
No matter how much coke Tony M did ... nobody gets shot that many times and keeps up with the dramatics.
That's called plot/character development.
You mean like Travis Bickle, in Taxi Driver.
Yes, but its a 3 hour movie. Thats a rival to bollywoods finest
Scarface, IMO, is an over the top comic book.
The Godfather, Part One, has some substance. Character development, plot, excellent direction and acting - a film with some depth - no matter the message.
I enjoyed both. Scarface is a bit of a joke. Pacino's usual overacting, lots of blood, explosions, bad accents, mindless junk. Fun if you don't feel like thinking and just want a well made, shoot-em up comic book.
The Godfather is decent cinema. Not exactly Citizen Kane, but better than average film.
Both have a place, but I don't really think they are comparable. To beat the cliché to death - apples and oranges. Similar on a superficial level - crime dramas. But one is a serious film, the other over the top, well made, junk.
I'd take The Godfather over Scarface anyday. Scarface is still good, but it's nowhere near the level of The Godfather. Now if I had to pick between Scarface and The Godfather 3 it would be Scarface hands down.
I always liked Donnie Brasco
The Godfather is far and away the better movie. Casino is another very well made movie and also much better than Scarface.
Perhaps it's because I heard so much about Scarface before I saw it, but I've always felt that it's kinda overrated.
Not bad, but not nearly as good as some people make out. If we're comparing it to the Godfather, there is simply no comparison.
i've never really enjoyed either movie but if i had to choose i'd probably go with the Godfather just because its not as over-the-top as Scarface.
