I'm hoping that you're being a contrarian a-hole with this statement, because the alternative is that your taste in film just sucks and is obscure just for the sake of being obscure.
So why does one (of three people mind you) disliking Godfather mean so much? And why would this statement be true at all.
And why is Godfather immune to dislike? Why?
That belief is far more ridiculous than my statement. And your assumption that that must mean I like obscure films to be obscure is also nothing short of ridiculous. Yes, go look at my Top 40 list. What's the most obscure movie on that list? Throne of Blood...maybe? If that's obscure.
And for the record, and on many occasions, I have already said that Godfather is a wonderfully made film with great parts all around. Very good writing, cinematography, acting, writing. All great. It maybe has some of the best collection of film parts ever, that's for sure.
....That doesn't mean I have to enjoy the experience. It has an awful moral center and it glamorizes evil. Not even just violence. And people love it for that.
I also really loath true anti-heroes, not just you know, Snake Plissken, but really bad guys like Michael. Sadly there's no redeeming character outside of Kay, and even that is a stretch by the end.
So saying that I strongly dislike the film is far from saying the film is bad. You've just proven most of the point of why SOMETIMES it's hard to have discussion.
"OH MY GOD SOMEONE SAID THEY DIDN'T LIKE THE GODFATHER! RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!"
That's just ignorant, sorry. And I don't mean that in distaste, I didn't throw out the first insult. Disliking one film made you question everything, come on, don't be that shallow.
