I have a very difficult and personal confession to make. As a self-proclaimed movie junkie, I must admit that I have never seen The Godfather till today. In the interest of full disclosure I did see the last 30 minutes on cable last year. Although I think I’ve seen just about every other mob movie known to man, I just could not live in the dark any longer. I had to see the Don.
The movie did not disappoint. It’s like watching stars being born before your very eyes. Without question it set the gold standard for mob flicks. I’ve been a Sopranos fan for a while now, but while I’m confessing my toenails, I must say I’ve never seen the first three seasons. I’ve been waiting to get the box set and watch them in a marathon.
Ok. I feel like I’ve arrived now. I’m a grown up, like I’m part of a circle of insiders, those in the know, but, somehow, I don’t think the Don would approve of blogging.
