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.

Format: DVD
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).

I just received the trilogy on Blue Ray. It's just amazing compared to the DVD version I had.

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.

I'm not quite sure if it's possible to surpass THE GODFATHER series in terms of pure artistic beauty. The imagery is wrought with the emotions of the film and the characters, the Italian-language moments are scripted well and interjected at the best times, and the acting (among other things such as the directing and cinematography) is superb. It's a travesty, it really is, that Al Pacino never won an Oscar for these films. The extras, including commentaries, are very well done and don't ruin the integrity of the film, as so many DVD extras often seem to do.
I've loved these films since I was a little girl; even then, I was able to discern the circumstances and fabulousness of the characters. This is due to Francis Ford Coppola's unceasing vision. Although Part III is clearly the least of the trio, it is the necessary conclusion that the series needs. Perhaps if it had been brought to the screen sooner after Part II, the vision would have been less interrupted. However, all three are remarkably well done -- I hate to repeat myself, but nothing surpasses THE GODFATHER.

If you were sitting in a dark room, could not see a thing and "THE GODFATHER-WALTZ" started to play, you would immediately associate this with this collection, and you'd by correct...probably one of the most recognizable themes ever written...not to mention the "LOVE THEME FROM THE GODFATHER", so beautiful and haunting had universal appeal, our composer Nino Rota most certainly outdid himself with this score.
Director Francis Ford Coppola's delivers a masterpiece, based on Mario Puzo's best selling book...an outstanding cast even more realized today than then ~ Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Robert Duvall, James Caan, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, Richard Castellano, John Cazle, Lee Strasberg, Eli Wallach and Sterling Hayden embroiled within "The Godfather Saga", dramatic acting at it's best.
The full-length Audio Commentary by Francis Ford Coppola, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround, Widescreen Enhanced for 16:9 TVs, Closed Captioned, and that's on just the first four discs...on the final disc (Disc 5), "The Godfather Bonus Material" with over three hours of exclusive features highlighting the many Cast Rehersals, Additional Scenes, Documentary on the Making of the Godfather, The Music of the Godfather (featuring Nino Rota and Carmine Coppola) plus other extra's to numerous to mention...but you get the general idea, this is a "film-buffs-treasure"...something that only comes along once in a lifetime, do me a favor...don't pass this up...this DVD Collection is in a CLASS BY ITSELF!
You might want to pick up "The Godfather Trilogy" (SSD-1121) on the Silva America label, would make an excellent companion for your "Godfather DVD Collection", please check out my reviews on amazon.com/music.
