Godfather Movie Scene: Michael Corleone is in charge of the family business and visits Moe Greene to buy out his casino and hotel. Moe Greene is outraged and sees Michaels offer as a sign of disrespect. Michael confronts Moe about slapping Fredo and asks Moe to think about price...
Movie Description: Throughout his long, wandering, often distinguished career Francis Ford Coppola has made many films that are good and fine, many more that are flawed but undeniably interesting, and a handful of duds that are worth viewing if only because his personality is so flagrantly absent. Yet he is and always shall be known as the man who directed the Godfather films, a series that has dominated and defined their creator in a way perhaps no other director can understand. Coppola has never been able to leave them alone, whether returning after 15 years to make a trilogy of the diptych, or re-editing the first two films into chronological order for a separate video release, as is the case here. The films are our very own Shakespearean cycle: they tell a tale of a vicious mobster and his extended personal and professional families (once the stuff of righteous moral comeuppance), and they dared to present themselves with an epic sweep and an unapologetically tragic tone. Murder, it turned out, was a serious business. The first film remains a towering achievement, brilliantly cast and conceived. The entry of Michael Corleone into the family business, the transition of power from his father, the ruthless dispatch of his enemies--all this is told with an assurance that is breathtaking to behold. And it turned out to be merely prologue; two years later The Godfather, Part II balanced Michael's ever-greater acquisition of power and influence during the fall of Cuba with the story of his father's own youthful rise from immigrant slums. The stakes were higher, the story's construction more elaborate, and the isolated despair at the end wholly earned. (Has there ever been a cinematic performance greater than Al Pacino's Michael, so smart and ambitious, marching through the years into what he knows is his own doom with eyes open and hungry?) The Godfather, Part III was mostly written off as an attempted cash-in, but it is a wholly worthy conclusion, less slow than autumnally patient and almost merciless in the way it brings Michael's past sins crashing down around him even as he tries to redeem himself.
Cast: James Caan, Richard S. Castellano, Robert Duvall, Al Pacino, Abe Vigoda, Marlon Brando, John Marley, Richard Conte, Al Lettieri, Diane Keaton

Hi, Jesus is Lord. To see evidence for the resurrection of Christ, read "The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus," by Habermas and Licona; and Google "Miracle of the Holy Fire." To see five good arguments for the existence of God, read "On Guard," by William Craig. To learn about the Orthodox Church, read "The Orthodox Way," by Ware.

Seraphim Rose).
Pray, "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner."
Pacino was absolutely brilliant in the first 2. Making Michael to be one of the most quietly menacing and compelling characters ever on screen. But Godfather III, eeesh. He no longer _inhabited_ the role of Michael Corleone. He was just Al Pacino reading and yelling lines. The contrast is sadly striking. Not just his fault, as III was just a mess in general.
The end line is what every person with autism should say to their social workers.
“Miss, you’re a good assistant, and I respect you. But don’t ever take sides with anyone against your client again. Ever.”
And, if you listen very closely at 2:05, Moe calls Michael a son of a bitch.
In the book, instead of saying 'I made my bones when you were going out with cheerleaders', he says 'I killed more men than you before I could jack off'. Moe was a contract killer since he was 12. I took a lot of balls for Michael to talk to him like that.
The one flaw in this scene is when Moe Greene said: "I made my bones when you were going out with cheerleaders". Before WW2 all the cheerleaders were male. Female cheerleaders didn't become common until the 1950s.
While visiting my father a few days before he died, my brother asked him if he would like anything from the cafe.
Dad was an only child, country boy who couldn't care less about Hollywood. The last movie he watched was Dr Zhivago. A life long Maxwell House instant coffee drinker. He thought a bit about what he wanted as he knew it would be his last. He looked at us with wry smile, pleased at his ability to be hip, he said. "Get me one of those Al Pacinos"
"That kid's name was Moe Greene and the city he invented was Las Vegas. This was a great man. A man of vision and guts. And there isn't even a plaque, signpost or statue of him in that town. Someone put a bullet through his eye. No one knows who gave the order. When I heard it, I wasn't angry. I knew Moe, I knew he was headstrong. Talking loud, saying stupid things. So when he turned up dead, I let it go."
Fredo should have said to Mike "Hey Mike! Let's get this straight, now! That piece of shit Moe Greene I never like him! I never trusted him. For all I know, he had me setup and my friend Angel Fernandez killed! "
It would have made more sense for Moe to just allow the buyout. Take the money and get a job at a different casino as a partner, etc. In real life, the minute Mike said that about buying him out, he'd have been polite about it and said "Sure, Mike. Whatever it takes."
