Godfather II is 3 hours and 20 minutes and they stretched it into a 4 and a half hour time slot.

i have a pretty robust DVD & digital collection.. but i swear, watching these movies on cable (commercials & all) are 10x better than popping in the DVD.

bad acting, bad writing.
Pacino's and everyone else's "cuban" accent is almost a caricature of a an accent. 
it's almost a parody movie.
it's like damn near every other movie from the 80's.  horribly dated and not able to stand the test of time.
the violence in it is gratuitous. 
and what made it all worse was 1998.  the 15th anniversary edition came out on dvd and there was Tony Montana stuff everywhere and you had kids spouting off lines from a movie they'd never seen.
and then all the rappers....enough said.
Shouldn't even be mentioned with the likes of The Godfather I and II, Goodfellas, Casino, The Untouchables, etc.
I won't deny it's popularity, but it doesn't make it good.
I'll see your
 and raise you one son..
 (be honored.  this is only the 3rd (and I guess 4th) I've ever given out)
Have a great day watching Scarface...

Agreed. Scarface just may be the most overrated movie in history.

Untouchables on the other hand...

Untouchables is soooo overrated.
The movie is so hoakey, cheesy, and over the top. It's also way too good guy vs bad guy for me, on some Saturday morning cartoon +*!+. In the best mob movies, that line is much more blurred and complicated. 

Plus,  Kevin Costner's acting was terrible in it...

Only saving grace is Sean Connery

Tuned in for a bit during Godfather II, where Vito comes back and kills the old man, they didn't show him gut the bastard

You're doing yourself a disservice if you watch edited versions of these movies for the first time. By all means enjoy, but they're far better unedited.
