Funny how?

The Godfather was on Film4 last night; I'd forgotten how funny it was. Don Corleone's weary resignation as he receives a parade of well-wishers with favours to ask is hilarious, and Marlon Brando's face after the famous disembodied horse head scene is a comedy masterclass.

But the funniest bit comes when Michael Corleone is hiding out in the Sicilian countryside and is seen taking a stroll with the local mafia don:

Michael: Where are all the men?
Don Tomassino: Dead from vendettas.

Godfather II was on last night. Possibly the only sequel which is better than the original.

James K - Terminator...? Back to the Future? Errr... the second episode of Friends...

I've still never seen ANY of the Godfather films. I sat down to watch both this week but just couldn't handle staying until the end - I think I'm cursed somehow.

You are right about Terminator..Not so sure about Back to the Future however.

Toy Story 2 anyone?

People always say The Empire Strikes Back, but I prefer the first film. Toy Story 2 could be better than TS1, but definitely Godfather 2 beats out GF1 and Back to the Future 2 tops BTTF1. Terminator 2 is just too damn long...
