"Why did you choose this product?"
I've always wanted to be someone who knew all the great quotes in this movie so I watched it three times last week. The FFCoppola discussion in the second audio was also interesting. Whenever I'd seen it before I had trouble keeping all the characters straight and matching names to faces... I have a much better appreciation for the movie now. I do wish they added in the scene where Michael shoots Fabrizio in the pizza restaurant - not part of the original movie but a great scene....
ITEM#: 11390227Based on the bestselling novel by Mario Puzo (who co-wrote the screenplay with director Francis Ford Coppola), THE GODFATHER tells an epic tale of Mafia life in America during the 1940s and '50s. Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando) is the family patriarch balancing a love of his family with an ambitious criminal instinct. At the wedding of the Don's daughter, Connie (Talia Shire), youngest son Michael (Al Pacino) is reunited with his family. A subsequent assassination attempt leaves the Don too ill to run the family business, forcing Michael and Sonny (James Caan), with the help of consigliere Tom Hagen (Robert Duvall), to lead the Corleones into a vendetta-filled war with other mob families. Violent revenge ensues as the family tries to change from its old criminal ways into legitimacy. Coppola's certified masterpiece, which won three Oscars (including Best Picture) and spawned an Oscar-winning sequel (THE GODFATHER PART II), set a new screen standard for merging blood-soaked violence with intimate family drama. In the process, Coppola single-handedly established the Mafia as an industry in film and television (GOODFELLAS, THE SOPRANOS). Featuring truly unforgettable performances, including the Best Actor-winning Brando, the riveting Pacino, and an unexpectedly dramatic Diane Keaton, THE GODFATHER is the pinnacle of Hollywood cinema in the 1970s.

If you grew up during the latter half of the last century, you probably saw the original "Godfather" on TV that was edited for content and cropped for commercials. This restored version is astounding in its scope. The iconic scenes that everyone knows now look like they have been polished to a high gloss. The legendary performances of Brando and Pacino are brought sharply into focus, and the age-old story of a son protecting his father and becoming the very thing his father never wished him to be ... the violence is still shocking and painfully real, but the quinessential characters rise above the dated dialog and the outmoded special effects. "The Godfather" is not a perfect movie by no means, but watching it again in its shiny new package just brings the masterpiece closer.Read More
Al Pacino and Marlon Brando do it again. This is the iconic gangster film that can never be beat. Not for young children or those who can't stand violence or blood.Read More
