Because one of the reasons you don't like the movie is because you loathe bad people in movies.
I never said that though. I said that their are no redeeming characters, which means, there's no hero, no one to root for. Not that I don't like bad people in movies. Yeah I agree, that's dumb. A good villain, as a foil to a good hero, is great thing to watch.
Problem is, Godfather is full of villains, not heroes, and it glorifies that fact. Therefore, it's uninteresting.
I hope you realize my word choice of "dislike," is important. I never said it was a bad film, but you're reacting as if I did.
That's about the most pathetic reason I've ever heard (at least from a man) for not liking a movie
You do realize that there's a whole slew of old world male philosophers who would argue that art's imperative it to present us with moral good. That showing immorality is actually a bad thing. I actually tend to agree with them in theory, so yes, that is some of my beef with the film. But that goes to more overt problems like torture porn films and stuff. Less so for something like the Godfather.
