I've always considered it a pretty overrated movie, so not too surprised.


Agreed.

I'd say Freauxzen leaving off Godfather would be more surprising,


You don't know me well enough yet. I'm sure some weren't surprised at all.

particularly since he made a comment about not having crappy movies make up the top 20 for the 70s. Then he goes and leaves off two movies pretty much universally considered top 20 period, much less 70s.


1) What crappy movies made my Top 20?

2) Honestly, I don't think the Godfather films are that great overall. They are missing key elements to me. If I were solely basing this on "technical and artistic accomplishment," they probably would. But it's about more than that.

We've hashed this argument out on here before, so no need to repeat or ruin the thread. In short, Godfather lacks a soul, completely, and that makes it really hard for me to like it.

I wasn't surprised. But that doesn't make it hurt any less. In fact, that and your irrational hatred for all things Russell Crowe are the only things standing in the way us being best friends.

Oh, I didn't see any crappy movies on your list, I was just referring to the opposite, with Godfather being left off. But everyone's tastes are different, I'm sure many posters will disagree with us about Chinatown. I'm having hard time coming to grips with the first Godfather movie not having a soul though.
