Limited to 5000, apparently

Throughout his long, wandering, often distinguished career Francis Ford Coppola has made many films that are good and fine, many more that are flawed but undeniably interesting, and a handful of duds that are worth viewing if only because his personality is so flagrantly absent. Yet he is and always shall be known as the man who directed the Godfather films, a series that has dominated and defined their creator in a way perhaps no other director can understand. Coppola has never been able to leave them alone, whether returning after 15 years to make a trilogy of the diptych, or re-editing the first two films into chronological order for a separate video release, as is the case here. The films are our very own Shakespearean cycle: they tell a tale of a vicious mobster and his extended personal and professional families (once the stuff of righteous moral comeuppance), and they dared to present themselves with an epic sweep and an unapologetically tragic tone. Murder, it turned out, was a serious business. The first film remains a towering achievement, brilliantly cast and conceived. The entry of Michael Corleone into the family business, the transition of power from his father, the ruthless dispatch of his enemies--all this is told with an assurance that is breathtaking to behold. And it turned out to be merely prologue; two years later The Godfather, Part II balanced Michael's ever-greater acquisition of power and influence during the fall of Cuba with the story of his father's own youthful rise from immigrant slums. The stakes were higher, the story's construction more elaborate, and the isolated despair at the end wholly earned. (Has there ever been a cinematic performance greater than Al Pacino's Michael, so smart and ambitious, marching through the years into what he knows is his own doom with eyes open and hungry?) The Godfather, Part III was mostly written off as an attempted cash-in, but it is a wholly worthy conclusion, less slow than autumnally patient and almost merciless in the way it brings Michael's past sins crashing down around him even as he tries to redeem himself. --Bruce Reid

Do you think DeNiro actually realises that his once great reputation has been destroyed by churning out numerous films that are utter tripe every year?

Hmmm, very tempting... :P

Just a word of warning, this thing is HUGE! Won't fit upright on any of my shelves

Limited to 5000 in the UK. There's probably 9,995,000 elsewhere in the world though.

I did.

Because then someone else would complain that I didn't post any information about the box set itself.

And actually, my first line before all the information was, and I quote:

"Will post link in first comment!"

Hmm, if they still have any in stock by next week I might consider as I'm currently skint

I'd rather have a steelbook, but can't deny this look great.

I bought this a couple of weeks ago for £28, but I don't mind as I'll use the £5 for something else I wanted.

But do be wary of the size. This might help give some perspective...

I really want them to release the blu ray set similar to the VHS set I have, where the first two films are cut into chronological order in one long film. Heat for this though!

thanks op, was broke before hand but it's another christmas present bought already lol
