As good as the Vito bits are, the Michael Corleone sections of Godfather II are almost all incredibly boring and hard to follow. The widely held II > I opinion utterly baffles me.

Yeah a lot of these films are very dull. At first I thought it couldn’t be helped and it’s just a fact that older films are slower and more opaque but some of the stuff from like the 40’s that I’ve watched proper zips along

there’s loads of imaginative stuff in there I’m sure and Blazin Saddles remains an all timer for me, so it’s not all bad. But it just feels like there’s so many deadly serious, macho, grey, slow films that are wildly acclaimed and just don’t chime with me at all
