Should I watch The Godfather Part III?

Postby Taffy » 02 Mar 2010, 17:16

I've seen the first two, and enjoyed them immensely. However, we've all had the memory of great films despoiled by the dross that follows, like Infernal Affairs with its dire sequels or the shite that George Lucas made after Return of the Jedi.

I've heard some very negative reviews of Part III. So, should I watch it, or would it be better to savour the first two and leave the third untouched?

The 3rd one is pretty crap, but it didn't really change my opinions of the first 2. Not like new Star Wars ones did.

It has its' moments, but on the whole it can't touch the first two.

I like any movie that has location shots of Sicily. So for that, it's ok. Mostly it sucks, though.

That's an offer that you can refuse.

It doesn't compare to the first two, but it's not entirely garbage.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan
