No wonder this movie won the Academy Award for best picture in 1972 - it's great! And timeless, since even today the acting and storyline are topnotch. Obviously, since it's about the mafia, it is violent - viewer beware. But the violence seems very plausible and fits with the story. Each character is developed so well, even many of the "side" characters. Fun to watch Al Pacino and Robert Duvall at the beginning of their very successful careers.

There is nothing I can say that will do this movie justice. Possibly the greatest movie of all time.

Such a freaking classic.

Don Vito Corleone: "You talk about vengeance. Is vengeance going to bring your son back to you? Or my boy to me?".

The godfather to me is a bloody brilliant masterpiece of a film and people may say it is not they cup of tea and am okay with that but this movie changed the way that I thought of movies, the story is about a man called Don Vito Corleone who has this big family and big friends and all in the middle of all of that the family and friends don't know that he works with the gangsters, The acting is out of this world and the music is so chilling and moving with a gangster feel mixed with it, R.I.P. Marlon Brando you beautiful man your brilliant actor bring us a strong Character in the movie that you deserved more then one Oscar and this movie deserved more then 3 Oscars it dese...

My 100th Review: The Godfather

This is a special event for me, because this is my 100th review, so I thought: why not do something special this time and review the film that contributed to my early love for film, the official king of all movies?
So here it is: my review for 'The Godfather'.

Rarely does a movie influence something. Especially today. After all, it is just a movie. it would take a lot to change something in a person.
For a long time, I had forgotten about the Godfather and started dismissing it as overrated.
Then I remembered, what I owed this movie.
It truly is life-changing for me, when something as simple as a fictional flick can change you in a way that you stop looking at movies as flicks, and start to refer to them as art. The Godfather is a good example that displays this, because this, alon...

"The Godfather" by Yojimbo

The son of a Mafia boss returns from the war and following an attempt on his father's life becomes more and more embroiled in the shadowy world of organised crime. Francis Ford Coppola's classic gangster saga is the story of a criminal dynasty headed by Marlon Brando in one of his most iconic roles. Coppola's direction is deceptively simple in that he uses no gimmicks or stylistic tricks; he merely allows the story to unfold and lets the superb cast do their thing. Brando's mumbling family and loyalty obsessed don has since become part of popular culture folklore (along with the classic score) and all other accompanying performances are top notch, from James Caan's hot headed Santino to Robert Duval's purely business orientated adviser. But this film is really the story of Michael's tran...
