The Godfather: (1972)
Considered by many to be the greatest movie ever made, Francis Ford Coppola's epic masterpiece features Oscar winner Marlon Brando as the head of the Corleone family. Coppola paints a chilling portrait of a Sicilian family's rise and near fall from power in America, and the passage of rites from a father to a son who was previously uninvolved in the business.

Godfather Part II: (1974)
The Godfather Part II is one of the rare breed of cinematic sequels which is as good as, and perhaps better than, the original. Al Pacino heads the star cast as Michael Corleone, heir to the criminal empire established by his Mafioso father, the late Don Corleone.

Michael is now in charge of all gambling activities in Nevada, making certain that any and all political or mob enemies are quickly bought off, compromised, or disposed of. Throughout the film, Michael's travails are paralleled with the early experiences of his father, played in flashbacks by Robert DeNiro.

The Godfather III: (1990)
In the final instalment of the Godfather Trilogy, an aging Don Michael Corleone seeks to legitimise his crime family's interests and remove himself from the violent underworld.

Now in his sixties, Michael is dominated by two passions: freeing his family from crime, and finding a suitable successor. That successor could be fiery Vincent (Andy Garcia)... but he may also be the spark that turns Michael's hopes of business legitimacy into an inferno of mob violence.

I saw the first film recently and was a bit disappointed given it's status in many 'best ever' film lists. Godfather 2 is supposed to be better though.

Great films, great price, thanks :thumbsup:

The Godfather and Godfather 2 are absolute quality and they are both in my collection. It would have been for the best if Godfather 3 had not been made.
Nothing wrong with the cast but the story was pathetic. The Vatican involved with organised Crime? Maybe 500 years ago but no way now. I have still voted it Hot because of 1+2

Remind me, which is *the* box set to get? Is it this one, the black one, or the Coppola one?

Or just I just stop fighting it and jump on the Blu-ray wagon? :)

I feel compelled to comment because, as much as you're entitled to your opinion, giving no reasoning for it is often why people will call you out on it, as you expect. To my recollection, there isn't an actor in living memory that has received tributes by his peers to the magnitude that he has, and by that I mean labelling him "one of the greatest" or "the greatest", and their opinions far outweigh anything you or I have to say on the matter.

I often hear or read about people who say he threw away his career after the films he made with Elia Kazan, and that he just did 'The Godfather' and had a few notable cameos (e.g. 'Apocalypse Now') and that was it... they may be right but I'd argue that the film that truly shows his greatness and importance as an actor is 'Last Tango In Paris'.

In my eyes, there's never been an actor who's carried an entire film to the degree he did in that. It wasn't even his best performance (Vito Corleone, Stanley Kowalski, Terry Malloy, Emiliano Zapata are all far more iconic/lovable/quotable) but it was the manner with which he leads you to believe in his plight that allows you to endure everything his character goes through. You take away Brando, and you've got a nonsensical soft-core porno with a horrific ending... NOBODY else could have done what he did in that film. He turned it from smut to something very credible.

I must say though, your name is quite ironic!

I think you meant 'iconic'! Thank you. ;-) And it's obviously not 'my name'. It is of course like so many other forum users tend to adopt, a 'pseudonym'. Anyone unfortunate enough to be named Blasphemous would, if they had ANY sense, change their name to something a little more ordinary... such as 'God' perhaps? :-D

If your observation of my irony was however the fact that I have a pseudonym of Blasphemous and an avatar of Jesus with a strap line of 'Amen To that!'... then that indeed could be considered to be ironic.

With reference to your post, you argued your point well. He is/was indeed admired by his peers and a great deal of audiences. The 'Greatest Ever' etc etc quotes from whomever, are, as you point out and both you and I have made..... simply personal opinions.
