I owned this DVD for ten years before I finished the whole thing.
And, you know, I thought Scarface was my favorite movie. It’s still one of the best, actually. But, the godfather. The. Godfather. I love it!
Okay first you should know that I usually like the bad guys. For example, I thought Walter White was the best!
What I admire about The Godfather… well okay, Michael &his Father, was the patience that they had. It look me a couple of views to realize that Vito never forgave or forget anyone for shooting him up in the beginning of the movie.
So many years passed between Vito getting shot like that and when Michael got this revenge.
The relationship between these father and son Don’s is definitely something that we should look at in terms of our own lives. Vito gave Michael good advice. The advice was so solid that it remained true after Vito had passed away.
Now, look at the empire that Vito built – he employed many people and took care of them. You could look at his life, his huge family, and see where the success is.
In turn, that is the type of thing that we should look at when it comes to someone else giving us advice. I’m not going to dwell on this but I will say: don’t take advice from someone whose life you would not want to live.
