The Godfather - Livetweet Review

So...I did this the other day.



5/5 stars

Hannah Long


  1. You're so funny! I've been thinking about seeing this film for a while, but I don't know if I could detach myself from the violence as much as you. Visual images tend to imprint themselves on my mind rather stubbornly. On the occasions when I have watched movies with harsh violence, I try to self-edit as much as possible. But this one makes it tricky because most of it is so abrupt and unpredictable (in your words, "getting groceries one minute, getting shot the next"). So I'm still mulling it over. Meanwhile, this review is very entertaining! Are you planning to watch Parts II and III now?

    1. The violence isn't as graphic and excessive as say, a Tarantino movie. Yet it is still hard to watch at times. For the most part the violence is easy to see coming, but there are one or two that do happen suddenly.

      I'm planning on watching the other two soon. I just checked out Part II from the library. Looking forward to seeing why Jack Walsh became so unpopular with the Chicago Police Department. I mean, of course, De Niro's Vito Corleone, and the New York City Police Department. But, you know. Don't get to quote it very often.

    2. Not as graphic as a Tarantino movie... oh that's helpful, like "Well, he's not as Catholic as the pope!" ;-)

      Heh, I see what you did there.

  2. So this was really fun! And that last funny pic--I saw the first part of the line and I KNEW what it was going to say and just laughed. Perfect. You should do more of these tweet posts! Really fun to read your thoughts as the movie progresses. I haven't seen this movie, but hopefully at some point I'll manage to watch it.

  3. Having now finally finished watching Godfather I for myself, I am finding it impossible not to read David's instructions to Solomon in 1 Kings 2 in a Vito Corleone voice.
