Included in the Bundle
Francis Ford Coppola's epic masterpiece features Marlon Brando in his Oscar ®-winning role*as the patriarch of the Corleone family. Director Coppola paints a chilling portrait of the Sicilian clan's rise and near fall from power in America, masterfully balancing the story between the Corleone's family life and the ugly crime business in which they are engaged. Based on Mario Puzo's best-selling novel and featuring career-making performances by Al Pacino, James Caan and Robert Duvall, this searing and brilliant film garnered ten Academy Award® nominations, and won three including Best Picture of 1972.
This brilliant companion piece to the original The Godfather continues the saga of two generations of successive power within the Corleone family. Coppola tells two stories in Part II: the roots and rise of a young Don Vito, played with uncanny ability by Robert De Niro, and the ascension of Michael (Al Pacino) as the new Don. Reassembling many of the talents who helped make The Godfather, Coppola has produced a movie of staggering magnitude and vision, and undeniably the best sequel ever made. Robert De Niro won an Oscar; the film received six Academy Awards, including Best Picture of 1974.
One of the greatest sagas in movie history continues! In this third film in the epic Corleone trilogy, Al Pacino reprises the role of powerful family leader Michael Corleone. Now in his 60's, 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 hope of business legitimacy into an inferno of mob violence. Francis Ford Coppola directs Pacino, Garcia, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, Eli Wallach, Sofia Coppola, Joe Montegna and others in this exciting, long-awaited film that masterfully explores the themes of power, tradition, revenge and love. Seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture.
Hey stop being idiots
Don't rate an epic movie 1 star because you are upset it's not in HD. Rate the movie for how good it is, not for what resolution it is offered in.
Before everything was HD and blu-ray everyone would have gone crazy over this deal.
To be straightfoward the godfaaather is the best movie ever made in the history of forever
ITS THE GODFATHER
I always read the reviews when I buy anything, whether or not I've watched the film. I think the people that condemn itunes for not putting this in HD is undermining the the pure "awesome-ness" of the trilogy. I was so suprised that this bundle was rated 4 1/2 stars when its usually expected to be an unanimous 5.
It's the GODFATHER; and the two BEST out of the three - don't complain.
Sure, its a little - and I emphasize, LITTLE - disappointing that they dont have it in HD, but the first time I watched these films, I wasn't really awed by the picture quality...I was awed by the movie. I love and appreciate these films HD or not. GET IT; I'm sure that the fact you can't see every pore on Pachino's face won't kill the storyline.
