    Gahdfather 3 : Revenge of Hell

    *In a heart breaking scene Al Pacino watches Godfather 3*

    In the 1970's Francis Ford Coppola became one of the world's most acclaimed directors, with Godfather 1 and 2, The Conversation, and Apocalypse Now. Four of the most universally hailed movies of all time.

    Then with Godfath3r he destroyed his entire reputation and career.

    Gadfather 2

    Also for the first time, I realized that this one is even better than the original. If you watch them back to back it's completely seamless. It's like the first movie kept going and got even better in the second half.

    ★★★

    Solving the labryinth of motivations and time frames is a lot more fun than trying to sink your teeth into characters which don't let you in.

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    ★★★½

    It's taken me awhile to warm to this one. Once you buy into Leone's twist for twist, super linear story telling, it doesn't take much effort to enjoy this. It's not at all about giving you deep characters to evaluate, they're already labeled in the first couple minutes. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is all about big set pieces, western atmosphere, and finding out who the fastest gunslinger is. While some things haven't aged as well as others (like bad dubbing), it's great looking. Morricone's beautiful score injects a lot of life as well.
