As a film fan, one of the eternal debates is The Godfather vs. The Godfather Part II. Both films won Best Picture and both films are all time classics. No one is disputing that. But forced to choose one, do you choose the rise of Michael Corleone as his father, Don Vito Corleone, passes on? Or do you choose the epic dual story of the Corleone family’s beginning, with Vito’s rise to power, alongside its expansion, as Michael broadens and splits the family? It’s a Catch 22, Sophie’s Choice if ever there was one and a debate that’s sure to go on forever.
On the poster side, though, this debate has been closed.

When people talk about their favorite Quentin Tarantino movies, some ask “Does True Romance count?” Directed by Tony Scott, True Romance was one of Tarantino’s earliest screenplays and though he didn’t direct it, it totally feels like him. The tale of a slacker named Clarence (Christian Slater) and the love of his life Alabama (Patricia Arquette), is exciting, surprising, violent and hilarious. It’s filled with passion, pop culture, realism and an almost unbelievable cast of supporting characters.
The film celebrated its 20th anniversary last year but as that milestone seemed to slip by many people, this year it’s having a bit of a renaissance. There’s a huge celebration happening in Los Angeles and Odd City Entertainment has an officially licensed poster coming online Friday. Check it out below. Read More »
