    Watching The Godfather Saga on HBO. The best 2 movies ever made plus a steaming pile of shit P3.

    Which Corleone kid would you say is the best.

    Sonny was definitely badass but Michael lasted and was smarter.

    Santino (Sonny) Corleone

    Well, you're asking two questions here - who's the best, who's the most bad-ass.

    Santino's the most bad-ass, definitely ....

    Got to say though, killing all of your rivals & wacking your brother is pretty badass.

    I was just watching this for the umpteenth time a few weeks ago. This is Micheal at the end of Godfather II. I think the previous scene is when he closes the door on Kay. When they pull in tight his hand shifts and you can see he still has his wedding ring on.

    Michael was cooler because he is more calculated

    Sonny was an idiot

    Very split on this one. It's Michael who arranges the most heinous and brutal act in having the other dons and Moe Greene killed. Whereas, Sonny had the reputation of being violent. His quick temper is ultimately what gets him killed though.

    Literally took the words out of my mouth. IMO, the stealth assassins are really the most badass.

    I have honestly never watched The Godfather. Just never came to an opportunity. Is it better than Casino? I fucking love Casino.

    Tom was smarter than them all. Without him they would have all been lost.

    That's like asking if a vagina is better than a Fleshlight.

    I've heard conflicting accounts by people not affected by nostalgia. The movie, I mean. Vagina is fantastic.

    Nostalgia schmostalgia. The Godfather a superior film, imo, as is Part II. It's not hype. Now, if you were asking if it's better than Goodfellas, that's not as easy a question. I'd still say yes, but they're very different in their ways.

    Still, I come back to the vagina analogy: are you going to take someone's word for it, or go get yourself a piece to see for yourself? You got anything better going on this weekend? ;)

    Watched this too after Wiggy mentioned it. Apollonia's death was the real tragedy of the movie. What a piece of ass. They don't really explain why Michael was pining for Kay so much... why didn't he just pick up another fine Italian broad instead of that harpy? Michael closing the door on Kay is some of the finest cold blooded cinema ever.

    Part 3 is awful for many reasons but one is because Michael is no longer Michael. He's Al Pacino.

    It actually comes after a flashback to Vito (played by De Niro) holding a young Michael in the train in Sicily, holding his hand to wave goodbye. It's a quick cutscene preceded by the Vito birthday scene, where we see Sonny, Fredo, Connie, Michael, Carlo, and Tessio (Brando was notably absent). That scene is notable for the fact that most of the characters present are now dead, half of them by Michael himself (on his orders). It was a happier time in the family, but it segues into Michael completely alone. It's a kick-ass way to end the film.
