A Book As Great As The Movie

by @ Wednesday, September 30th, 2009. Filed under Book Reviews, Books, Godfather Saga, Movies

I’m usually not a fan of reading books based on movies I’ve already seen, especially ones that I’ve seen enough times that the images from the movie are indelibly etched in the brain. It’s for that reason that, even though I’ve seen The Godfather, The Godfather, Part II , and, yes, even The Godfather, Part […]

Robert Duvall talks up Sarah Palin: Actor Robert Duvall claimed to have known about Palin all along. At the New Mexico event, he was on hand to cheer on the new political couple. “About a year ago I first saw this wonderful woman speak,” the veteran of “Lonesome Dove” and the “Godfather” movies said. “I […]

American Foreign Policy, Godfather Style

by @ Monday, May 12th, 2008. Filed under 2008 Election, Foreign Affairs, Godfather Saga, Politics

John C. Hulsman and A. Wess Mitchell have a fun, imaginative, and in it’s own way brilliant article up at The National Interest in which the compare the choices facing American foreign policy leaders to the choices facing the Corleone family in The Godather. There is, for example, the diplomatic strategy epitomized by family consigliere […]

One of the greatest films of all-time was released

Democrats Go To The Mattresses

by @ Wednesday, July 18th, 2007. Filed under Democrats, Godfather Saga, Iraq, Politics

The Post Style Section offers this perspective on the Democrats’ Iraq War all-nighter: Looking at the cots, one couldn’t help but think of the scene in “The Godfather” in which Robert Duvall’s Tom Hagen, the Corleone family’s consigliore, and James Caan’s Sonny Corleone argue over how to respond to an attempt to kill Sonny’s father, […]

The Godfather Part IV: Fredo’s Revenge

As a diehard fan of The Godfather, and a libertarian, I just have to love this one:

The Godfather Cult

Received via email today from my buddy Raymond: I’m watching The Godfather for the first time. I understand now. Heh. And thus another person is assilmilated into The Corleone Collective

God I Love YouTube, Part III

Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in:

God I Love YouTube, Part II

by @ Tuesday, March 6th, 2007. Filed under Godfather Saga, Movies, Videos

And, appropriately, it’s the preview for The Godfather, Part II. Perhaps the only time in the history of the movies that a sequal has equaled, if not surpassed, the original it was based on. The tone of the preview itself leaves much to be desired. The 1970s sensationalism is a bit over the top, and […]
