No worries, my reply is late too.
Not a fan of flashbacks either, if you seen Man of Steel you will understand that.
I think I'll give it a shot too. That's funny, I tried watching the original Scarface and I couldn't finish it. Guess I was expecting it to be similar to the one with Al Pacino.
Just saw your post about The Godfather 1 and 2, didn't want to leave another comment since I just posted one, but those two were the best. Did you ever see 3 tho? I never have, I heard it was just awful.
