what makes him changed his mind, for now? hmm, maybe the cold shoulder treatment given to him by Cebuanos on last weekend's Boom-boom/Z Gorres/Jaca Cebu fight. This article describes it more accurately. was he booed by the fans? or he just realized he's going to earn more in boxing and remain the king of endorsements? well, i am happy for him, at least for now, and he made his mother even doubly happy that she answers every question thrown at her with "I am happy and thankful that he'll not enter politics". manny's own words: for now, backseat muna ang politics. again, for now.
goodness, make it for good na.
okey, something related to the title. :) finally, i've seen The Godfather. yes, the movie. and only now. and i know now what i've missed with those years of not watching it. and what's more shameful? i have the trilogy and they're just there, just there. and i call myself an Al Pacino fan? shame, shame, shame. lol
my review of the movie will not give justice to the greatness of the film, so i will not do that. besides, i am not good with film reviews and more often than not, i give spoilers. see, i'm bad. pero, anak ni marlon brando naman, i am glued to it for three hours and was always "schocked" with those bloody "little" acts of violence, so dark, so good. (and when i saw francis ford coppola with george lucas and spielberg handing the oscars to scorsese, i wanted to say, coppola rules! hehe) and what i love about the film aside from touching loyalty and family is the way it makes you feel the scene, you can feel as you are more nervous with Michael's meeting with Sollozo and that policeguy or when Michael looked for the gun and used it or with luca brasi's "knife" encounter or Sonny's surprise tollgate experience or that Enzo (the baker) trembling in front of the hospital. how can you not loved it, the tension just keep on building up and it will just hit you. bang. and the eyes of Pacino is so intimidating that it will kill you if you refused his offer hehehe. (i remember in Devil's Advocate how those eyes "eat" the robotic acting of keannu reeves, but that's another story).
I just love Al Pacino more. and i am now excited for the next two, i'll have Godfather II this friday (wala kasing basketball) and hopefully the third one this sunday.
so, make me an offer i can't refuse. bang.
