The Godfather: The most boring film ever made....Watch
OK sure you believed all the hype and you own it as well. How often do you watch it? Do you ACTUALLY think that this triology enriches your life?
I'm personally not the type to re-watch or re-read stuff. Did enjoy the Godfater tremendously, nonetheless. Wouldn't go as far as say it enriched my life though.
For some, it's not greatness-in-your-face material, it takes some time to appreciate it.
Me.....right from the very first scene, I was hooked. The next 3 hours....didn't realize where the time went. The more I watch it the more I am in awe of how amazing it is.
Other than that? Upon re-watching them I discovered that they are fantastic films. If you don't like slow epics then it wouldn't surprise me that you think it's bad, but it tells one hell of a story.
I'd rather watch Goodfellas over Godfather any day.
Also, I couldn't understand a single word Brando was saying and had to turn on subtitles.
I agree with you, to an extent at least. It's often called the best gangster film of all time (sometimes even the best film of all time) but I'd give that title to Goodfellas, it's so much more engaging.
But it still deserves an honourable mention
I wouldn't say I like it because it's hyped, indeed there are many hyped films which I dislike, I just enjoyed it. It's probably in my top 50 (1&2 were very good, 3 made my face hurt).
Shawshank is overrated. It's a solid 8/10.
