Sinéad and I sat down and watched all The Godfather films over the weekend. I've wanted to see these for quite some time, just never managed to do it. They were quite good I suppose. I think a lot of the impact was probably lost because I have sat through all of the Sopranos. I really enjoyed seeing the very young Al Pacino and Robert De Niro at work. I also picked Robert Duvall who I recognised from Days of Thunder. That's just tragic, I know. I also picked Sofia Coppola (director's daughter, oooooh!) in part III. I thought she was ok! Apparently, her acting was widely panned in this. Part III was probably a bit over the top with all the super corporate empire and Pope shenanigans. The first one is cool. Ah, Marlon Brando.
