You diabetic? I’m no defender of the 3rd installment, but it’s a realistic portrayal.
No, and the scenes where he has the diabetic issues aren’t the issue. It’s his normal talking cadence. Watch the first two and see how he carries dialogue then watch it in part 3 and you see a totally different character.

Every movie he did from the mid 80s on had that over the top Whoo Hah type style that was wayyy too over the top IMO. And FTR, I loved Heat, great movie, but wrong character died!

As a Godfather fan...I accept III.

People seem to hate it for various reasons (yes, Sofia should never have been cast and was awful)...but I thought it showed some exceptional maturity, moving from straight gangster to true business empire building. Like most illicit families attempt to shift towards. I thought it was interesting from that business perspective and its maturity level. Facing and dealing with eventual mortality, religious absolution, etc.

Obviously far less "gangster" and hardcore than its predecessors, but I think that's what makes it more real...as compared to horseheads in beds...which, hey, was great too.

Makes me think of Bill Hader's impersonation

Phones open up in 35 min for Super Regional Tickets (we’re so old school, SMH). Let’s use this thread to communicate and buddy up if interested with the 4 ticket limit.

@Christian Lowe @Rishvol As already discussed yesterday, some of us had said we only need 2, so we can pair up for a higher chance of success. Let’s communicate who’s got through and see if we can get some of together and get loud for the good guys together. I’ll be looking for Saturday tix.
