Watched the Godfather

Just watched the Godfather for the first time. Can’t believe it has taken me this long to watch this classic movie from 1972. I think everyone else in the world has already seen it.

Great movie. Most people agree. I don’t think Shawshank should really be rated higher, but what are you going to do?

Had trouble watching it at first because my friend Tom gave it to me on a USB drive in WMV format. I mean seriously, who uses WMV anymore? I watched theĀ WMV on my Mac using VLC and then popcorn in hand, started watching.

Afterwards, I checked out this article from Mental Floss on 15 Things You Didn’t Know about the Godfather. Pretty crazy that Paramount didn’t want Marlon Brando in the title role. I can’t imagine anyone else pulling it off.

So what do you think about the Godfather? Should I watch parts II and III? Yeah, I guess.
