Product Description

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.

Has been cheaper in the past six months and at some point I think it will come down again!

They're old films. They're set in a low light environment with low colour saturation and the director deliberatly chose to use a "grainy" filmstock. There's no reson to buy these on BD rather than DVD and the DVD trillogy can be had for £12.

Maybe the cheapest price atm, but this will drop in price again soon so hardly a hot deal imo.

Now that is daft, when done right a blu-ray transfer will always be better. Even if it is "grainy", which is natural afterall, a Blu-ray transfer will handle the grain better with the much higher bitrate. Blu-ray is meant to make films look their best, closer to the source material, not look like the current blockbusters all shot on digital cameras.

You'd really prefer the ]DVD over the ]Blu-ray? Heres another one from the marriage scene in first film, ]DVD and ]Blu-ray. The screens at least give a general representation of the vast improvement (Ctrl & + to zoom DVD).

I bought this set on the run up to xmas online at HMV, for £18.
