Cool Stuff: ‘The Godfather’ Finally Gets the Sleepy Don Vito Corleone Collectible You’ve Always Wanted

There have been plenty of collectibles and artwork paying tribute to cinema’s greatest mob boss, Don Vito Corleone from The Godfather. But most of them hone in on the intimidating version of the man in a tuxedo discussing dark deeds and deals with the shades drawn. The collectible creators at Damtoys are taking a different approach with a new 1/6 scale figure of a much more casual, even sleepy, version of Vito Corleone, labeled as the “Golden Years Edition” of the character.

‘I’m a first-rate, second-rate director’—Francis Ford Coppola

The first film director that I think I was ever aware of was Francis Ford Coppola. I was in middle school when other students were talking about a movie featuring a scene with a severed horse’s head. Being 11-12 years old I didn’t see The Godfather in theaters in its original release—but I learned the […]

Cool Stuff: ‘The Godfather’ Life-Size Bust Will Make a Great Gift on the Day of Your Daughter’s Wedding

As pop culture fanatics, we’ve seen a lot of weird, expensive merchandise inspired by movies and TV shows. But some of the most perplexing collectibles, at least to me, are life-size busts featuring life-like sculpts of famous faces, and this new piece from DAMTOYS inspired by The Godfather is easily one of the most unnerving. Marlon Brando is immortalized in a tangible form as this life-size bust of his portrayal of Vito Corlone in The Godfather, complete with a fabric partial suit, synthetic ...

‘The Godfather Part III’ Re-Edit Coming From Francis Ford Coppola and Paramount This December

Just when you thought you were out, they pull you back in. Francis Ford Coppola hasn’t directed a new feature film in a few years, but he has gone back to tinker with some old ones. He recently released a recut version of The Cotton Club, and now he’s about to do the same thing with The Godfather Part III. Infamous for being the least-well-received entry in the otherwise fantastic Godfather saga, this new Godfather III cut, which goes by the somewhat clunky title Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, Cod...

A Tribute to Robert Evans: The Producer Who Stayed in the Picture

The word “legend” refers to a great many people who have worked in Hollywood. But when you’re talking about a movie star or a fabled director, the essence of the legend can be found up onscreen.

The Godfather, a First Google Employee, Steve Ballmer and Microsoft

--> A few years ago, I had dinner with one of Google’s first employees. How he joined Google was a long and convoluted story that had more elements of luck than I can ever recount. He’d been working in a midsized town in relative obscurity and at a fairly low level when, through a series of making the right choices and one random string of events after another, he was hired at Google. Early, early Google. He found himself sitting in a room with less than 15 people who were Google’s first employe...

The Best TV Shows & Movies Leaving Netflix in January 2019

We’re coming up on the end of 2018, which means there’s one more purge of Netflix titles before the new year begins. Thankfully, the list of titles leaving before 2019 isn’t nearly as big as it used to be, so you should have plenty of time to check these movies out before they leave the streaming service forever (or maybe just a few months, since that’s what happens with a lot of these titles). Below we run through the best TV shows and movies leaving Netflix in January 2019. Face/Off Over...

Drinking alone, part 2.

1. Earlier today, I had "Deval Patrick, drinking alone" ("... I was actually quite drunk, by myself”). In the comments, The Godfather said, "Drinking alone is bad enough. Admitting to a reporter that you do so is weird." I said:I don't see anything wrong with eating alone in a restaurant and ordering a drink (or even 2 or 3) with your dinner. But getting "quite drunk" alone (especially in public) is embarrassing.2. Everyone seems to be talking about "Embracing päntsdrunk, the Finnish way of drin...
