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 A masterpiece of atmosphere and character Feb. 17 2001
By J
Format:VHS Tape
From the haunting trumpet music leading into the first scene, this is one of the more atmospheric movies I've ever seen. Dark and brooding. The score is as much a part of the film as the actors and scenes. An aging Mafia Don presides over his family's transition of power. Marlon Brando is brilliant in the role of his career, Vito Corleone. Quiet, understated, and controlled. The Godfather is a man to be respected and feared. Of course, we all know, deep down inside, Don Vito is little more than a gentlemanly thug. A man who made his name through viciousness. A common criminal with uncommon power.
At the beginning of the movie, it looks like power will pass to Sonny, the handsome and volatile oldest son. Fredo, the middle son, is semi-retarded and Michael, the youngest, has no interest in the family business. Tom is an adopted son who could never become Godfather. Through a series of events, Michael shows his loyalty to his family and sacrifices tremendously. Slowly, it becomes apparent that he, not his father or his brothers, is the force to be reckoned with. He will hold the strings that maunuever other men. Al Pacino plays him masterfully. As a man who doesn't overcome his demons. Rather the opposite; he embraces them. He allows his soul to die as he willingly succumbs to his fate. He chooses an insulated paradoxical power over independence. The Godfather isn't about getting what you want, it's about accepting your destiny and working within that understanding.
A film about family, loyalty, manliness, sacrifice and the violent, hypocritical, degrading aspects of a criminal empire.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Film Ever Made! Sept. 7 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Yes, this is probably the best film ever made. A lot come close ('Citizen Kane', 'Casablanca', etc.) but 'The Godfather' has been proven a perennial favorite between the audience since it's release over 25 years ago, and still stands well. It is virtuoso filmmaking at it's absolute best, everything from directing and acting to writing and score are done to perfection. Never a dull moment in the film, not a slow scene, not a bum performance and nothing seems out of place. Coppola's first major film and certainly his best, this was the offspring of his creative talent. His direction in this film is flawless, every little detail fits together, and even the casting was inspired, to create a moving and even nostalgic movie experience. The acting is unbelievable a powerhouse ensemble cast, few actors have worked so well together and in such beautifully synchronized harmony, you really believe that this people are family. Marlon Brando, in one of his definitive roles, delivers one of the best performances in his career and in movie history. His portrayal of Don Corleone is unforgettable, powerhouse method acting at the highest level. And also his physical and emotional transformation from 'aging Don' to 'old Don' is pure brilliance. Brando will be remembered as one of the greatest actors of his generation and it will be mainly because of this film, and of course because of his other great performances in films like 'A Streetcar Named Desire' and 'On The Waterfront'. Al Pacino also delivers what may well be his best performance ever as Michael, even though he was equally good in 'The Godfather Part II'. Some of his scenes, namely the spellbinding murder of Sollozzo and McCluskey, are so well acted it's scary. Robert Duvall is also very impressive as Tom Hagen. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars "leave the gun,take the cannoli" April 12 2010
By falcon
Format:DVD
much has been said about how great this film is,and i hesitated for the longest time before breaking down,but finally i bought the Restoration Box set which contains the three films and two bonus discs.so,after watching this first film,i must say i was pretty impressed.it's a well crafted film.at a running time of just over one hundred and seventy three minutes,you'd never know it.there never a dull moment.it's exceptionally engrossing from the opening frame to the closing credits.the acting is superb.Marlon Brandon is excellent,but i would say that a young Al Pacino matches him.the dialogue is also well written.for me,The Godfather is a 5/5

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).

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