Definitely one to add to the list - thanks for the review. I’ve always enjoyed this and while it doesn’t scale the heights of the first two films, I can’t think of many films that do. I never really understood the huge criticism Sofia Coppola got either, which seemed to be quite mean spirited in a lot of cases. Also I don’t care what anyone says, for me Al Pacino’s acting on the steps near the end is fantastic.Thanks for the review - never understood the hate this film got as I always thought it was decent, just not in the same league as its 2 predecessors.
The lack of Robert Duvall is a bigger issue than Sofia Coppola for me. I'll rent this out of curiosity.
It will be the best it will look, but still 1-2 years away, I was late to it too, watching on VHS back in early 2000’s, wanted a repeat viewing after my first watch. One drawback with streaming availability is with so much choice, sometimes the classics don’t get a lookin.I've still to watch the godfather trilogy, im holding out now for the 4k box set when it arrives.
I missed it when orginally out and was more into SCIFi, horror and action at the time.
Thanks for piquing my interest with this review. I look forward to watching all 3.
Interesting point about the streaming availability. I think you could be right about that. And its a shame because the classics will be the better option more often than not.It will be the best it will look, but still 1-2 years away, I was late to it too, watching on VHS back in early 2000’s, wanted a repeat viewing after my first watch.

Go on, dip your toe in the Corleone pool.
And I'll have a comp for this too hopefully before Monday. I'll throw a link in the thread when it's live.I’m not a huge fan of part 3, but it wasn’t too bad and did have great cinematography and score.
2022 is when the UHD set of all 3 movies is to be released and that’s an age away. I’ll pick this up when it goes down in price before the big release in 2022.
I still have mine.I had the VHS boxset of the trilogy arranged in chronological order.... watched it all in a day and loved it. I think that was done specifically for a TV broadcast, but I did like the linear way it charted the Corleone family from the father as a young child through to the son as an old man.
