I have never purchased these films myself, but they have been on TV countless times. I would usually watch them at least once a year. Regardless, I was tickled when I noticed that all three were available for streaming through Netflix. Now I could watch them whenever I wanted! I immediately added them all to my queue and devoured them in a single day. It was a good day. That was back in September. Just a scant two months ago. Well, I went to watch them all again just yesterday and found they were now missing from my queue. GASP! Had someone in the family removed them? In my home? Where my wife sleeps...and my children play with their toys?

Admitting my failure, I just added The Godfather to the regular (or "commoner") queue. By the time it gets here via /gag/ the US Mail, I probably could have just downloaded a Torrent of it...about a million times. But there is that whole "ethical downloading" thing I actually care about. And I know I would feel dirty getting a less-than-legal copy of such a great film. So I guess I will just have to wait. In the meantime, I think I will blog about it. And I just did. I don't know...maybe one day, if my grades are good enough, I will buy myself a Kindle (and the Kindle Editionof the novel) and actually read the book my favorite movies are based on. But I don't like Kindles, Tom. I'm a businessman. Blood is a big expense. Okay, that last one was a stretch, but I wanted to squeeze one more quote in...
*Yes, I know there were actually three Godfather films. But I just love the first two; the third was pretty forgettable. I mean like really forgettable. It had its charm, of course. The actor Andy Garcia was great in that film; even being nominated for an Academy Award. And that was back when most people called him "that guy who was in The Untouchables with Sean Connery". But that was about it. The first two are the best ones. In fact, the first two are considered by many to be the best American films ever made.
