Transcript of GTA 5 as a PostModern text

GTA5 As a postmodern text Intertextual
References Introduction for "The Godfather: Part 3":
Michael Corleone - [voiceover]:
My dear children: It is now better than several years since I moved to New York, and I haven't seen you as much as I would like to. I hope you will come to the ceremony of papal honors given for my charitable work. The only wealth in this world is children; more than all the money, power on earth, you are my treasure.
Introduction trailer for "Grand Theft Auto 5":
Michael [voiceover]:
Why did I move here?
I guess it was the weather. Where the... I don't know, that thing. That magic. You see that in the movies. I wanted to retire from what I was doing, ya know? That...that...that line of work. Be a good guy for once, a family man. So, I bought a big house, came here, put my feet up, thought I'd be a dad like all the other dads. My kids will be like the the kids on tv. We'd ball and sit in the sun, but, well, you know how it is.
The Sopranos is an American television drama created by David Chase. The series revolves around the New Jersey-based Italian-American mobster Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) and the difficulties he faces as he tries to balance the conflicting requirements of his home life and the criminal organization he heads. It also features Tony's family members and Mafia associates in prominent roles and storylines, most notably his wife Carmela (Edie Falco) and cousin and protégé Christopher Moltisanti (Michael Imperioli). A central theme is his professional relationship with his psychiatrist, Dr. Jennifer Melfi (Lorraine Bracco).
