I loved it and think is great, but godfather 1 and 2 are masterpieces, but they are two COMPLETELY different types of movies so its really hard to compare them at all.
Here's a controversial comment....I finally rented the Godfather as I haven't watched the whole thing through before. Well, lets just say I turned it off half way through. Keep in mind I'm not a fan of older movies and this was no different.
Its personal taste for some, if you aboslutely hate a brand of movie, whether be old, drama, comedy etc... its a lot harder to win a person over.
However I am 19 years old and my dad had me watching the Godfather when I was 7, and I have kinda grew up with and understand it now more than I did then and I appreciate the work it is, it has inspired an entire genre and has set the bar so high.
Thats what makes a movie good, when you think of Mafia movie you think Godfather, Love Story Titanic, etc...
and I believe with Dark Knight, when you think super hero movie I believe you wont say Superman anymore it will more along the line come down to Dark Knight aka Batman...
Thats what makes a movie memorable, not necessary good but has to be pretty damn good for a genre to have its bar set by it.
