(If you’re curious, my review process. It’s also pasted at the end of this post. I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me.)
(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)
The Godfather: Part III
SW SCORE: 32
2.5 out of 5 🐙
Aside from the Matrix Reloaded, there might not be a more disappointing sequel in motion picture history. Look, I could play the game that the movie wasn’t THAT bad if you took out every scene with Sofia Coppola. But guess what, she’s in the movie. And while she’s a fantastic director, her acting was so bad that it ruined every scene she was in. And it’s not like the rest of the scenes comprised a compelling story. Can you name any lines from this movie? Can you name any lines from the previous two? Of course. How many times have you seen the first two? How many times have you seen this one? It’s not that the previous two were happy endings. But this whole movie is just unhappy.
Review process: (this is always evolving, I’m sad to say. I’m more of a watcher who makes mostly unhelpful observations about things I have absorbed. I am not unlike a pop culture blob.)
Two scores are assigned: (I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me)
(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.
(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)
(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so
(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
