Product Description

Amazon.ca

Throughout his long, wandering, often distinguished career Francis Ford Coppola has made many films that are good and fine, many more that are flawed but undeniably interesting, and a handful of duds that are worth viewing if only because his personality is so flagrantly absent. Yet he is and always shall be known as the man who directed the Godfather films, a series that has dominated and defined their creator in a way perhaps no other director can understand. Coppola has never been able to leave them alone, whether returning after 15 years to make a trilogy of the diptych, or re-editing the first two films into chronological order for a separate video release as The Godfather Saga. The films are our very own Shakespearean cycle: they tell a tale of a vicious mobster and his extended personal and professional families (once the stuff of righteous moral comeuppance), and they dared to present themselves with an epic sweep and an unapologetically tragic tone. Murder, it turned out, was a serious business. The first film remains a towering achievement, brilliantly cast and conceived. The entry of Michael Corleone into the family business, the transition of power from his father, the ruthless dispatch of his enemies--all this is told with an assurance that is breathtaking to behold. And it turned out to be merely prologue; two years later The Godfather, Part II balanced Michael's ever-greater acquisition of power and influence during the fall of Cuba with the story of his father's own youthful rise from immigrant slums. The stakes were higher, the story's construction more elaborate, and the isolated despair at the end wholly earned. (Has there ever been a cinematic performance greater than Al Pacino's Michael, so smart and ambitious, marching through the years into what he knows is his own doom with eyes open and hungry?) The Godfather, Part III was mostly written off as an attempted cash-in, but it is a wholly worthy conclusion, less slow than autumnally patient and almost merciless in the way it brings Michael's past sins crashing down around him even as he tries to redeem himself. --Bruce Reid --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This full frame-by-frame restoration is beautiful. A damaged master copy had been the main culprit of a poor transfer to DVD/video originally. This transfer is not just a digitally cleaned up version of that master, but in some cases they used a better quality negative. The old version had murky dark scenes and washed-out bright scenes like the opening wedding scene. It was terrible. This version fixes all that and is just beautiful in HD. The Godfather the way it was meant to be seen.

While the original film ranked #2 on the AFI's list of 100 Greatest Movies (#1 being Citizen Kane), many film buffs, afficionados, and audiences believed that the first Godfather film deserves that #1 spot. How many people do you know who know some of those famous quotes like, "I'm gonna' make him an offer he can't refuse," or "Never take sides against the family again, ever..." A few maybe? Or perhaps you grew up in an Italian family like mine and your father can translate the Italian for you while you watch? Now how many people can quote Citizen Kane beyond, "Rooooosebuuuud...."
Despite the excellence of the first film, it is my opinion that Godfather part 2 delves deeper into the family, more into the two-toned life that Michael Corleone orchestrates between the family business and his family. Nowhere is this more apparent than with the relationship he cultivates between himself and Hyman Roth (wonderful performance by Lee Strasberg), cementing the old adage that you keep your friends close and your enemies closer. On the surface they are friends, behind closed doors they are co-conspirators, between each other they are close friends and confidants. Beneath it all, in the depths of each man's heart, they are mortal enemies, Corleone ultimately the victor. The whole movie is a mounting tension between the two, reaching heights as when Hyman fumes over the death of a great man, Mo Green, whom Corleone had killed in the first film. In the end, Hyman becomes just another victim, mowed down by a Corleone footman.
The court proceedings are shot in a way that transmits the claustrophobia and morose tedium of the justice system back in the days of McCarthyism (the eras align somewhat, both post-war 1950's).

So many years ago I read Mario Puzo's book and of course went to see the movies. I just knew this collection was going to be great and it was, especially the extra discs showing how the movie was made. The Godfather is my all time favourite movie. You won't be disappointed! Even though Godfather I was the more acclaimed one - I love all 3, yes even 3! I yearn for another one to be made, but know that won't happen. Years ago I never would have thought that "mob movies" would be amongst my must haves, but now on certain ones, I'm hooked. The direction, the haunting music and of course five-star acting by my favourite actors, especially Al Pacino. Carlita's Way, Scarface and of course the fabulous Goodfellas with the great Ray Liotta...they are all classics in my book. I'd also recommend the audio CD Godfather Part 11. Can you believe I even watch them when they are on TV also?! Yes. I admit it.....I'm totally addicted.

I had no problems playing these discs on my PS3.Blu-ray discs are a bit odd as they are more scratch resistant than regular DVDs but sometimes if there is a fingerprint on the disc they will not play.
The picture quality in these movies while not razor sharp has warm rich collours.In Godfather 2 the Picture quality is very good when the movie shows how the Godfather started out at the beginning of the century and sepia tones are added to create atmosphere.
I think this is a fine collection.

The Godfather series have long been heralded among the greatest pieces of american cinema. First reviews of the films:
1.) Godfather: (11 out of 10). A classic of cinema and #3 on the AFI's 100 greatest movies list. It's also my favorite movie of all time. Marlon Brando gives a legendary performance as Don Vito Corleone, the head of the Corleone mafia family. From his hoarse, mumbling voice to his cheeky face, Brando created one of the most famous and often parodied charcters in film history. Another special contribution this film gave to pop culture was introducing Al Pacino. Pacino is great in his signature role as the Don's son, Michael. He shows in his portrayl the transformation of Michael from a war hero into a ruthless mobster. The supporting cast are all fantastic as well. James Caan as the hot-tempered Sonny, Robert Duvall as consigliere Tom Hagen, Diane Keaton as Michael's wife, Kay Adams and the late John Cazale as Fredo Corleone to name a few. The Godfather had many memorable scenes such as the horses's head lying in a man's bed, the shootout at the restaurant or the massacre of Sonny Corleone. And who could forget Marlon Brando's famous line : I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.This movie also gave the audience insight into family life inside the mob and how these people stay close to one another despite being low life criminals.
2.) The Godfather part 2: (10 out of 10). Brilliant sequel which is equal to the original in it's epic scope. This movie tells two stories. The sequel part shows us Michael moving his newly established crime organization and family to Lake Tahoe. The prequel part takes us back in time to when the young Vito Corleone (played brilliantly by Robert De Niro) rose to power in the slums of New York.
