Quick thought

Bought a few DVDs in the past two weeks including Season 4 of The Simpsons today. Although the bargain bin at Wal-Mart can be a drought of cinema, there were two good buys that I snapped up — The Complete Adventures of Wallace and Grommit and The Godfather.

While I was gladly paying my $5.50 for The Godfather, I thought about the fact that the special edition for the whole trilogy was around $70. Why would I pay so much considering the fact that the first movie is the best of the lot?

I know a lot of people say the second film is the best of the series. I don’t. The second film seemed way too derivative of historical events for me. It’s still a great movie, but not as good as the first.

And they actually should pay people to watch Godfather III, which is a pale shadow of the first flick.

So, I’ve got a lot of great movie watching ahead of me while I move through a pile of newspaper clippings tomorrow.
