Episode 79: Oh My Godfather


Brando, what plants crave.

We’re going to make you an offer you can’t refuse. Listen to the Nerd Hurdles podcast or swim with the fishes.

The Godfather is one of the most beloved films of all time. At least as voted by 18-35 year old males on IMDB. They also like The Dark Knight a whole lot. So that tells you something about The Godfather right there.

No, not that it’s awesome.

Sometimes it’s hard to hurdle the hype piled on a classic film, but rarely does such a revered classic prove to be a case of the emperor’s new clothes. The emperor’s naked people!

The Godfather is perhaps the worst scripted, worst acted, most poorly paced, so-called classic we’ve forced ourselves to watch in a long time.

Right about now, you’re probably asking for some defense of the above thesis. We provide our argument in the episode. Download it now and then put out a hit on us later.
