Ridiculous, awkward, insipid, and unwatchable

Within the first hour of the film... The Godfather, THE Godfather... Michael Corleone Is accosting Vincent Corleone for NOT going to the police after an attempt is made on Vincent's life. I'm sorry, what!? The mafia's main business (i.e. crime) is running protection rackets... And this mafia family's godfather tells his family members to go to the police for help? Did Michael lose his balls at some point after Part II? Michael is actually... Quite literally trying to make his family business "legitimate" and for some reason still has somewhat cordial contact with the woman who aborted his would be heir in Part II... Each scene from the next is a variety of cringe, silly, boring, and mediocre... Mixed in with a nausea-inducing incestuous flirtation between Vincent and Mary Corleone... The latter of whom is the daughter of the film's director! I couldn't bare watch anymore of the film after the first hour... And especially knowing that I have two more to go... It is hard to believe this was made by Francis Ford Coppola.
