MoSHO Monday Movie Club: The Godfather
We’ve started a movie club! It’s like a book club, except for movies. Every Friday, someone from the MoSho Movie Club picks a film.
Could be old, could be new. Could be critically acclaimed or it could have been a flop. The point is, that everybody watches the movie over the weekend. On Monday, we talk about it on Facebook Live.
Also, I’m aware that my co-workers (Joanna, Nico) and former co-workers (Lisa, Brandon) considered it “an old, boring boomer movie”. I wanted to prove them wrong. Also, I feel like a lot of the anti-Godfather attitude I was getting was because of a reference from “Family Guy”. This one…

Was the call from Carlo’s lover and the dish-shattering fight with Connie all an intricate plot to get hot-headed Sonny to leave without bodyguards? It just seems like there would be a LOT of assumptions for that plan to work out. I’m not sure I buy it.
Here are some of my favorite pop culture references to “The Godfather” of all time.
Family Guy. Again
