    you shouldnt take any critic seriously.
    They are just one or two people expressing their sometimes lame opinion

    It's members of the general public who vote on the film out of 10.

    One of the great segments on the show. Ralph called in and said he doesn't like Godfather because it almost seems now like Marlon Brando is playing a parody of godfathers. Artie, who worships the movie, just paused and said "I just don't know how to be in this conversation".

    Its a classic line if someone ever says something you can't even comprehend to have to debate.

    3 is underrated. sofia coppola was sooooo bad, but discounting her "acting" its a good film.

    if they had cast someone like wynona ryder at the time, who was getting big and could act, i believe the film would have been better received to this day. sofia coppola was cancer for that movie

    I don’t think you can compare these two excellent films.

    Just proves how fucking stupid that smug prick is. Before The Godfather movie was there ever a “Godfather” like character for to parody? Sure there have been a lot of gangster movies but nothing like The Godfather so how the fuck could Brando be doing a parody?

    I may have read that which is why her name stuck out.

    Coppola should have waited for her

    She didn’t turn down the film, she was cast and was in Italy ready to start filming. She got sick, allegedly from exhaustion from all the work she’d been doing. Coppola and a doctor went to her hotel and the doctor said she can’t shoot this movie so she was allowed to drop out. Coppola was ready to start shooting in days, he had his family with him and when he wrote the character he had modeled her on Sofia and dropped her in. She didn’t even want to do it, her Mother didn’t want her to do it, her aunt Talia Shire tried to talk Francis out of it but Francis saw his daughter as that character and dug his heels in.

    IMO Ryder was the hottest woman on the planet in the early to mid 90's
