Maybe it is because I was younger but I don’t remember the third film being so bad. Come to think of it, I’m not even sure if I did see the third film. I would need to ask my uncle since he owned the first two films on VHS. In reading over Wikipedia, I…"Mario Puzo’s THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone"

Brosnan was heavily criticized for his singing in the first film and rightfully so. This time around, something is different. Brosnan’s singing is more or…"Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again Is A Fun Time"
