‘The Shawshank Redemption’, ‘Mallrats’, ‘Oldboy’ and ‘The Godfather’ A.K.A. THE FINALE

I’VE DONE IT! I actually managed to watch 212 films in 7 months! BOOYA!! However, I will not feel like I’ve fully completed this challenge until I type up my so-called ‘reviews’. I now have 43minutes to type all four of today’s movies up. Guess I kind of regret not typing up The Shawshank Redemption when I had the chance [I had a nap instead >.<]

Anyways, 3 of these films were amazing, guess which one wasn’t so *eye roll, glares at TheFilmFan* [lol joking, by the way]. Now, seeing as time is short and I now have 41 minutes left, these reviews might be short, brief, bullet points and I may miss some key points, especially in Shawshank, Oldboy and Godfather. At least this time I have a genuine excuse for my crappy reviews! 40 minutes to go!

The Godfather Part II

I’m going to be completely honest and say that I didn’t like this movie. Well, I liked 1/3 of it and its only the 1/3 that involved Robert De Niro.

There are two storylines, storyline A is Al Pacino as the new Godfather and his ‘problems’, storyline B is Robert De Niro as Al Pacino’s dad, Vito, and how he ‘rose to power’. I cared nothing for storyline A. I didn’t give a damn and it bored me. There was too little of storyline B, and it was the only storyline I cared about. I really wanted to know how Vito went from his family being murdered by a Don to becoming a Don himself; how did he become something he hates? That’s what’s interesting, not who tried to kill Michael [Pacino]. Well, that’s my opinion anyways and I’m sure there are thousands of people out there who completely disagree with me but everyone to their own opinion.

Rocky

This movie was totally not what I expected. I didn’t realize it was so heavy on the romance! Its an alright film, I just can’t believe its on the top of so many guys favourite movie lists. I only made a few notes, sorry

  • Love Rocky’s hat
  • Rocky’s fridge has doughnuts, cupcakes and chocolate. Sounds like what I’ll have in my fridge when I live away.
  • His two turtles are called Cuff and Link. That’s just pure genius, I love it!
  • 4am, eats raw eggs and wears a grey jumpsuit. I think if you just said those words, people would know exactly what movie you were talking about.
  • Damn Team America had me laughing during the montage in this movie… “And anything that we want to go from just a beginner to a pro, you need a montage (montage)… Even Rocky had a montage (montage)…”
  • 190lbs?! He’s only 50lbs heavier than I am! Bloody hell…
  • At the end, I wanted Rocky to win, purely because the other guy is a total douche bag. And their faces at the end of the fight, oh my God, ew.
  • 86/212
