Compared to the first two installments, the third Godfather movie sucked.
If you ask anyone what there ten favorite movies of all-time are, there's a strong liklihood the The Godfather and/or The Godfather: Part II will be included on such a list, and for good reason -- both were cinematic masterpieces.
Why then, did The Godfather: Part III suck?
To be fair, in its own right, the third installment wasn't a terrible movie -- it had its moments. But compared to the impeccable standard set by the first two installments, this movie failed to make the mark. Most true fans of the trilogy are quick to dismiss the third installment due to this subpar effort.
So why did this movie suck in comparison to the original two?
We at MCP headquarters were determined to discover the answer to the question which has plagued the minds of many movie-goers for sometime. So we decided to allow The Magic Mushroom Machine to watch all three installments, and explain to us exactly what went wrong.
After the marathon session of having watched all three movies, the super-computer recounted three reasons as to why The Godafther: Part III sucked:
1. No Robert Duvall (Tom Hagen)
2. Francis Ford Coppola was past his prime
3. Instead of playing the role of Michael Corleone, Al Pacino played the role of Al Pacino
