AA61HVY - Maybe we could drone on about getting tanked off Rainbow warriors, pink squirrels, fuzzy navals and 6 packs of Natty Light. Then you might have something constructive to say for the first time ever...
Having got that out of the way, let me say than I am another one who likes "Godfather III". Its a very hard movie to follow, and quite different from the first two, but I think that helps set it apart. Part II is also good and I only say the 1st one is better is because the initial was such a classic, its hard to rate a sequal ahead of it. The original "Godfather" was a tremendous movie, and I too do not find it racist. Italian-American groups don't like it because of the "negative" night is portrays Italians in (the whole Mafia concept). Also, and I find this legitiment, people say that the movie romanticises The life of the Mafia. I can see that complaint, but lighten up. The Mafia will exist with or without the "Godfather" movies. Mario Puzo's intention mainly was to show the family of the Don of a powerful Mafia Family. He did that very well, even more so in Part II. The trilogy as a whole is fantastic. If you haven't seen them, its must see T.V.

Quoting KROC (Reply 20): I never understood why everyone hated Sophia Coppala in III. Granted she isn't a top notch actress, but I do not think she was as bad as most people say she was.
When III was playing in the theaters, audience members would start laughing at scenes not meant to be funny, her acting was so atrocious. At least she had the sense to stick with directing thereafter.
In any event, if you consider III on its own merits, rather the comparing it to the first two installments, it really is not nearly as bad a movie as often claimed.
"Let me think about it" = the coward's way of saying "no"
