The Stephen Covey Godfather Seminar

The Stephen Covey Godfather Seminar

Tom: Guys at work think I'm from PLUTO when I say I've never seen The Godfather. I say I'm from North NJ--I pretty much LIVE in the movie...why would I want to watch it?

Do you think it's strange? Is it like reading Shakespeare? Is it required somehow? I think Sunset Boulevard is the best movie ever made. Or Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. I'm currently working on season III of Rocky & Bullwinkle...I'm not mainstream, am I?

Oh, and btw, I thought of a decent 4BW: Ready? You can have it: Jackie Robinson and Larry Doby in row 1. Below them, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Not great, I know, I know...it's hard though. --Fog

I've never seen The Sting. Or Citizen Kane.

The Sting is fun, but not seminal. Citizen Kane is. Sunset Blvd is between the two. Mad Mad Mad...World is more on the level of The Sting.

I think The Godfather (both I & II) are great, but mildly overrated (I don't consider them "the best films of all time").

Your analogy, however, is incorrect. Saying "you live in it" is, hopefully, incorrect, unless you really are a Goodfella.

Now, if you said, "I don't watch Jersey Shore because I live in it", is presumably not only correct, but can get you free back pats of commiseration.
