  1. Holy cats Rachel! You haven’t seen Godfather 1 &2!!!
    Two of my favorite films of all time! You must see them. So deep in character development and such compelling stories! Many twists and turns. At times shocking.

    Your Aunt and I often comment on how much a young Al Pacino as Michael Corleone looked like your grandfather when he was young.

    Don’t be scared off by all the parodies about these films. They represent the best of what movies can be.

    You must see One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest too!

    • I warned you there’d be surprises! It’s true, I have shamefully not seen the Godfather movies. I have seen the scene from the first one during the parade when some guy is killed. Otherwise, it’s really hard to commit to such a long movie. I’ll get there one day.

  2. Both films are so compelling, I never noticed their length. Trust me on this!

  3. Greetings! Ryan’s dad told me about your site over the holidays. Looks interesting and will be frequenting it as I continue my goal of finally watching some of the classic movies.

    John (Paul’s dad) Shore
