3.0 out of 5 stars Better Get the Collection July 5 2004
Format:DVD
So many reviews rate the film itself which we already know is a classic, but few give any comments on the quality of the DVD. The Paramount Widescreen Collection of this film is indeed a very bad transfer which becomes quite evident in the first scene which is almost incomprehensible because it is so dark as to render the subtle performance of Brando unviewable. On my DVD I couldn't even access the bonus track with the commentary. Fortunately I only spent $15 for it, but it really fueled my desire to see the collection which everyone raves about, eventhough I could care less for GF III.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look For the Little Things July 6 2004
Format:DVD
Excellent film, although the violence is disturbing.
A few little things in the film are notable for me in
clarifying the contradictory personalities of the characters.
(1) In the scene where Sonny smashes the camera of the
man photographing the vehicles parked at his sister's
wedding, he throws down a couple of bills to the photographer
as he is walking away. Sonny may be violent, but he
isn't a thief!
(2) In the scene at the beginning where singer Johnny
Fontaine is complaining about his problems to Vito
Corleone, Corleone tells Johnny that he is too thin
and should eat more. It is touching how this mafia
don who has people "rubbed out" is concerned about
the health of his friend like a Jewish mother.
(3) When Clemenza kills his co-worker Pauley, he
tells the fellow who actually did the shooting
to "leave the gun and take the cannoli" which he
promised to bring to his wife as he was leaving
for "work" that day. A concientious husband! (and
killer)
(4) Michael, at the end of the film, chews his wife
out for asking about his "personal business". Finally,
he gives in and tells her....a lie, that he didn't
rub out Carlo, his brother-in-law. Didn't he think
she knew what was really going on? And why does
she keep playing along with the lie? Everyone is
really lying to themselves and continuing with the
charade.
(5) When the heads of the "five families" get together
to regulate the narcotics trade, they agree that it
shouldn't be sold near schools. That, presumably,
wouldn't be moral or ethical, but selling it elsewhere
would be ? (or is it they are being pragmatic and think
that the authorities won't
crack down on them if they sell somewhere else).

Format:DVD
This film was a superb adaptation from Mario Puzzo' novel- Coppola reached the peak and became a first rate director with this movie.
There are many worthy issues to remark. The first of them was the superb approach and conception given to this complex and even fascinating world of the mob.
Until this movie; no other one had made such analytical surgeon, with so deep gaze. The camera (with a photography which reminds us to Visconti in several dramatic sequences) establishes as another actor.
The amazing cast was another cosmical achievement. Coppola has always had that hunter smell for the outstanding actors.
What can we add to the unforgettable performance of Marlon Brando? . More than acting Brando established a landmark; he became in a model for this role.
But the emerging talents such as Robert de Niro , James Caan, Talia Shire, Diane Keaton and the young raising promise as Al Pacino who had revealed the year before with Serpico, looks like they had established a unspoken commitment, not only with the directorial code, but with themselves.
The flow of the story follows the same model as a Symphony in four movements. Coppola will never be effectist with the action sequences; he makes that you feel as logical and the use of the music looks like a voice in off, which makes as a natural link for the work in progress.
There are, at least five unforgettable sequences in this legend movie. This work from its release, became in a reference film.
Watch it and you'll be always rewarded over and over.
An eternal triumph in the story of the cinema.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the all-time great films May 15 2004
Format:DVD
The Godfather is one of the greatest movies ever made with a great story and impressive cast. The movie tells the story of the Corleone family, one of the Five Families in New York City. Headed by Don Vito Corleone, the family must survive in the changing times after World War II as the drug industry begins to spread in America. The Godfather must try and hold his family and empire together against the other mafia families, but also against his own family. This movie has become an important part of American pop culture for good reason. The movie is full of great characters, fantastic one-liners, the instantly recognizable theme, and the still alarming violence. This is a great movie that should not be missed by movie fans everywhere.
Marlon Brando fully deserved his Academy Award for his performance as Vito Corleone, the head of the powerful Corleone family in NYC. This was also the movie to skyrocket Al Pacino to the top as Michael Corleone who takes charge of the family when everything begins to go wrong. The impressive cast includes James Caan as the hot-tempered Sonny, Robert Duvall as Tom Hagen, Richard Castellano as Clemenza, Diane Keaton as Kay Adams, and Sterling Hayden as corrupt cop, Captain McCluskey. The movie also stars John Marley, Abe Vigoda, Al Lettieri, Talia Shire, and Richard Conte. The DVD offers a great-looking widescreen presentation and commentary from director Francis Ford Coppola. Releasing the movie like this without the second two movies in the series was a great idea. The other two movies are good, but nowhere near as good as the original Godfather. For one of the best movies ever to come out of Hollywood, check out The Godfather!

There is simply no other way to make 3 hours go by this quickly. Unless you're watching The Godfather Part II of course.
