Opinion

From Library Staff

Really only the first movie belongs in this list, but for some reason the library only carries the full collection rather than the individual movies.

This comment is for the first Godfather film. Such an amazing piece of cinema! Love the Don Vito/Michael Corleone characters!!

Three of the greatest American movies ever! Beautiful restoration of Gordon Willis's sumptuous, groundbreaking photography. Plots/stories as operatically stirring as those by Puccini. GREAT directing, acting, screenplay, casting, production design, photography. I prize these films as much as any American film.

Be sure to watch Discs 4 & 5 for special features, especially disc 5.

Part III is the only reason this isn’t 5 stars.

Three of my favorite films of all times. I have to admit, part 3 falls short of the first two, but it is still a very good movie. All three are incredibly well acted, and intricately plotted. Amazing. Must see trilogy for any movie fan. Production values are low compared to today,but the stories, acting and iconic scenes more than stand the test of time.

How do I write a review about one of the greatest movies ever made? What can you say that hasn't been said a million times before, in newspapers, magazines, and on the Internet? Is there a cliché that hasn't been used, or a compliment that hasn't been paid? Is there anything original left to say about The Godfather? There is not. If you haven't seen this you are missing out on cinematic history. I highly recommend this movie to everyone, this movie will not disappoint!

Bonasera: How much shall I pay you?

[the Don turns away dismissively, but Bonasera stays on]

Don Corleone: Bonasera, Bonasera, what have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you'd come to me in friendship, this scum who ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And if by some chance an honest man like yourself made enemies they would become my enemies. And then, they would fear you.

Don Corleone: You talk about vengeance. Is vengeance going to bring your son back to you? Or my boy to me?

Luca Brasi: Don Corleone, I am honored and grateful that you have invited me to your daughter... 's wedding... on the day of your daughter's wedding. And I hope their first child be a masculine child. I pledge my ever-ending loyalty.
