    Writer Mark Wooden has more thoughts on Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather, Part III." These thoughts are not as serious as in the main episode (number 12), but are interesting nonetheless.

    They're also not safe for work. You've been warned.

    Writer Mark Wooden defends what some would call the indefensible: Francis Ford Coppola and Mario Puzo's "The Godfather, Part III" and "The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone."

    Wooden looks at some unfortunate choices the filmmakers made but why those choices work for the movie. He also handles the elephant in the Corleone office, the casting of Sofia Coppola.
