Whats the Best?
For years I would have picked The Original but lately I've been addicted to II
Do we really need this poll?
The Original by a mile for me. Never understood the flashback scenes in Part II. I'm sure he was trying to do something there, but I've never been able to figure out what purpose they serve besides giving Bobby D a big payday.
yes....Look 2 for each...I really wanna see a poll for the first 2...The other choices are basicallya joke.
Those scenes are classic
I like part 1 a lot more. The flashbacks in II are the only good parts. I didn't care about Vegas or Congress. Those parts always put me to sleep. Even though we see Michael fully turn evil.
You dont like Mike going to do business with Hyman Roth really only to kill him and Johnny Ola? And the whole ending seeing him go crazy and abandon Kay and Kill his brotheR? Its so fucked up, its genius...Also The last scene of 2 is one of my favorite scenes ever.....Seeing the whole family and tessio waiting at the dinner table to surprise Vito....And you see Sonny Introduce The scumbag who eventually marrys connie and betrays the family.....
Tough call. if you add the version that combined godfather 1 and 2 and made them chronological I would go with that. having 3 up there as anything but a goof is just wrong.
I guess I'd vote with the original but GF2 would be a very close second on my list.
What is that called and where do I find it? I'm not sure i have ever heard about that one. (And I consider myself a GF fan!)
Tough call between 1 and 2...
If someone held a gun to my head, I'd have to say 2.
The original was it for me. Still one of the best films made.
IMO 2 was more dynamic, but the first one is just the better of the two
its the Godfather Saga...i am not sure if they made it on DVD...it seem to be a made for tv thing...it combined parts 1 and 2 putting the flashback scenes first in order then the other scenes...
and for me Godfather 1 is king....then part 2 and i am not sure how much i enjoy part 3...
Part II is my favorite movie of all time. GREAT THREAD!!!
Those scenes were in the Book the Godfather and never adapted in the film The Godfather. So they told the stories of father and son Corleone's rise to power
The original and it's not even close for me either. I also never understood why all the hate for III. It's a different movie but it's supposed to be.
Went with the original, but it's a tough call between 1 and 2.
I went with 2, the flashbacks with De Niro were the best
I own the box set........I got it in 2002,,,,,,,never made it through the whole set, maybe i'll give it a shot. Or maybe,,,just maybe, the movies were made a long time ago, and are WAY the fuck over-rated :icon_cool
I voted 2.
I and II are 2 of my favorite movies of all time.
I always like part two just a little bit better, but part one was outstanding as well.
I liked part three as well but there were a couple of bad casting choices in it that did hurt the film. But otherwise I thought it was good, though not great like the previous two films.
I liked the nephew..Whats his name? Sonny's son. But Michael's Children ruin 3.
They should make a movie today of like the Inbetween years..between the flashbacks and godfather 1. Like show Vito coming up even more...and show tessio, clemenza becoming capos and all that shit..show sonny as a teenager and the other kids...
my opinion, two was good, three shouldn't have been a choice, and one was just outstanding.
Did you find the easter egg that shows the Soprano's watching GF on TV?
The original. It reset the bar and re-invented the genre of the mobster movie.
It set what most other mobster movies afterward try to emulate. Which is not a bad thing.
