Although, those last two I don't plan on seeing.
Skip III but Godfather I & II are brilliant (II is better.)
NBNW is also great - Cary Grant is the ultimate in cool.

I never want to see GWTW and I have made it a point (for no good reason) to never see IAWL.

I consider myself a movie fan and am shocked that I have never seen The Exorcist but that I have seen Yor, Hunter from the Future, Krull and Gymkata more than once!

Yes, it is you. The first two films are masterpieces. Not just from a casting, writing, acting and directing standpoint but they are cinematographically beautiful films. Gordon Willis does an amazing job with very little light. Godfather II is an even darker film in terms of its plot and cinematography. Willis shows how the use of the lack of light can create a sense of dread and evil on screen.

I know I sound like a geek but I have been a fan of cinematography for some time. For a great lesson on this, check out a documentary called Visions of Light: The Art of Cinematography.
