    Well, yes, but I was looking at it from the perspective of a number of reviews I read at the time talking about his fall feeling really rushed in it.

    Couldn't agree more. The Godfather never seems long...there's enough meat on the bone to keep it going.

    Exactly...horrible writing and sub-par editing.

    I suppose that was true, but given that all Lucas could come up with is the bad guy saying:

    "I think your wife might die in childbirth, go kill everybody for me and I'll see what I can do about it."
    *Anakin kills everybody*
    "Eh, turns out I can't do anything. My bad, here's your robot suit."

    I shudder to think what we would have gotten if he expanded on that nonsense.

    Venom is the first 4k movie we have scheduled for my new, yet to come, 4k projector. We didn’t see it in the theatres, saving it for the big event. We just didn’t thonk it would take this long
