Watching the Godfather Part III right now for the first time through.

Two things:

This is an abysmal DVD transfer. Looks worse then the other two films. Bleck.

Sofia Coppola...Christ.

Three other things:

Holy shit, it's Tuco.

God damn that reporter is a hottie.

And Andy Garcia if a fucking badass.

What's sad is not that the film is terrible (because it isn't), it's that Coppola was clearly able to deliver moments of greatness that FEEL like they go together with the other two, but some very poor choices make it ultimately a failure; namely casting Winona Ryder in the first place (who also would have sucked), replacing her with his daughter (who at least LOOKS the part), casting Bridget Fonda (supposed to be the younger counterpart of Diane Keaton's role in the originals), insulting Robert Duvall away from the project with a paltry monetary offer, and I still think Andy Garcia isn't nearly as good as people think or want him to be.

Also, that final scene of Pacino on the chair with the orange is handled so awkwardly it's painful to watch.

The film had a great trailer, though.

Yeah, if there's anything this film is missing already, it's Robert Duvall.

Tom Hagen was easily my favorite character from the first two films, and could have made a real strong counterpart to Michael in this film, since the tension between those two was building throughout the entirety of the first two films.

Also, the Sofia's character Mary would have been much more effective had she been born mute.

My god, she's awful.

When Kate wins her Oscar I really hope it's for a great performance and a leading one at that. I'd rather see her have to wait ten years and desrve it than receive a guilty career recognition.

Then again I don't know which she'd prefer

What I admire about Kate is that she doesn't choose these typical Oscar-bait roles. The charming but annoying girl in Eternal Sunshine, and the frumpy housewife in Little Children aren't exactly in line with what usually wins at the Oscars.

She made fun of this in her guest spot on Extras when she's appearing in a Holocaust film just to win an oscar, and says something about having to do that or play a handicapped person if you want one. Really hilarious.

I love it when she starts talking dirty about buffing her husband's Oscar, etc but then gets caught out

I Kate Winslet. She's amazing and seems really down-to-earth. And gorgeous to boot!

Woah, fucking awesome giving Jesse James a win. I applaud the SFFC.

But wtf's with Clooney this year? Was he seriously good enough to beat some of the strongest male performances in recent memory?

You didn't see Michael Clayton?!?! ZOMG!!!

It was actually a very well-done thriller. Nothing major. And Clooney has been better, namely in Syriana and Solaris. Not really understanding the hype on that perf.

Trailer for Harold & Kumar 2.

Not as funny as the NPH/unicorn poster, but some pretty clever stuff here.

This is a red band trailer, definitely NSFW.

I laughed my ass off at Harold & Kumar, and the poster with NPH and the unicorn was a thing of beauty.

But that? Looks so dumb.

Maybe I'm just not in the right mood.

2 confessions:

I want to see Alvin and the Chipmunks because I think I'd enjoy it.

I want to see Atonement so I can mock it.
