The Godfather of All Podcasts

On the third episode of Big Mike's Movie Podcast, my friend Andrea and I talk about arguably the greatest film of all time, The Godfather. What more is there to say about the movie or the podcast, except listen to it now!

Hey, great podcast. I missed the second one so I'll need to find time to double back and catch it. You know, what strikes me about the Godfather every time I see it, and I haven't seen it nearly as many times as I should have, is that you expect it to be one of highly praised movies that you admire for their skill and their history and their cultural significance without ever really being moved by them, but the thing is just wholly engaging from beginning to end. It doesn't matter if you like gangster movies or not, it's got everything: murder, mystery, suspense, romance, personal exile, coming-of-age, the list goes on and on, and not one moment of the three hour running time feels forced or wasted.

So now that I've listened to it, I thought I'd tell ya that listening to the way you talk about films often leaves me feeling wickedly inadequete as any sort of a critic. You relly have a way of getting to the heart of a film and analyzing it from many angles.

I agree with Andrea btw, you definitely should read the book. Speaking of which, she was pretty damned insightful too. Does she have any sort of a blog that I could start following??

Hatter - wickedly inadequate? give me a break. I get caught up in my own garbage so much, I start to think that I'm overanalyzing movies or just seeing what I want to see instead of what is presented to me. But of course, I do believe in the very important social impact that movies have and the significance they have on our culture.
