nice extra mhm show. Too bad Matt couldn’t make it, but Shane is great as always.

Matt’s wife was busy having a kid, and wanted him to be there. I think it’s a lame excuse!

With regard to Diane Keaton’s role in the story, I believe it was just another plot device for Michael’s revelation that his past sins had affected all of his closest relationships including the mother of his precious children, as such you couldn’t have omitted this aspect. My thoughts…

I also agree that Connie’s character has become immensely powerful and in my opinion will become the puppet master to Andy Garcia’s role as the new Don.

And just as an aside, Talia Shire is Francis Ford’s sister, definitely a family affair.

I disagree about Michael’s death. Although it mirrors Vito’s death, I think the last shot of Michael indicates his death is of a lonely man with no family, who realises he has taken a totally opposite path to his father’s and basically cannot be redeemed. A bit bleak but I believe that is the theme for his character arc. Happy to discuss your views on this.

Yes, that is very true. Vito’s death he’s playing with the family’s future. By the end of Michael’s life, there isn’t any real future for his family with his daughter’s death a few years earlier.

Sorry to be a pain, but it also tries to tie in actual events where Pope John Paul I died after only 33 days in office. Many conspiracy theories abound about him being poisoned or similar. Interesting.
