FUN MONDAY-Own Movies
Sayre our host this week asks :
I want you to think about the movies that you OWN. Not movies you've seen, but the ones you felt strongly enough to go out and buy. You will be your very own awards committee, awarding your movies an Oscar in the following categories ....
I can't say anything about categories or being my own award committee for the simple reason that I am not a movie freak. I don't have any favourite actors, the only one which just comes into my mind is Julia Roberts. When I watch a movie I like it or not, the rest doesn't matter.
Of course that was different when I was a Teenager !
I don't owe a single movie. I was never interested in buying movie DVDs and keep them like books in a library . There are a few laying around here, but they belong either to our son or to friends. If I want to see a film again I rent it. I have friends they own a whole Video library, but I am not interested at all in this.
The only DVD which is not rented or borrowed in this house is "The Godfather" all 3 films. It was a birthday gift Mr. G. got years ago.
It is the DVD package called "The Godfather DVD Collection". The collection contains all three films with commentary from Francis Ford Coppola and a bonus disc that features a 73-minute documentary from 1991 titled The Godfather Family: A Look Inside, plus a 1971 documentary. The package also contains deleted footage, including the additional scenes originally contained in The Godfather Saga. "Francis Coppola's Notebook" a look inside a notebook the director kept with him at all times during the production of the film, rehearsal footage, and video segments on Gordon Willis's cinematography, Nino Rota's and Carmine Coppola's music, Francis Ford Coppola, locations and Mario Puzo's screenplays. The DVD also holds a Corleone family tree, a "Godfather" timeline, and footage of the Academy Award acceptance speeches.
This movie is part of cinema history and you can read more about it here in Wikipedia
