I Will Take It

Just saw a midnight screening of The Godfather at Landmark Sunshine on Houston. Fantastic to see it on a big screen. As the scene approached where Michael suggests that he be the one to kill Sollozzo and McClusky, I immediately thought of Bilbo volunteering to take the ring to Mordor in Fellowship. Same scene, only they don't laugh at Bilbo like they do Michael. In Star Wars, I guess the analagous moment is when Luke returns to the Lars homestead to find the burning bodies of Owen and Beru. Luke's moment isn't as cool, because he only answers the call once he's got no other option. Pussy.

I know this isn't really a deep thought, but it's four in the morning, and I don't often stay up this late anymore.
