Paramount Home Entertainment's Blu-ray release of the iconic gangster trilogy, The Godfather Collection stars Al Pacino (Dog Day Afternoon) as Michael Corleone, a young man who inherits the top mob boss position of "Godfather" from his father, Don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando, Apocalypse Now).
This four-disc collection is director Francis Ford Coppola's much-lauded digital restoration of his Godfather films, the third of which - 1990's The Godfather: Part III - is only available on Blu-ray through this franchise boxset.
Why the hell would Paramount let Criterion have these films? THAT individual would be out of a job tootsweet! Besides...Paramount did a great job with them and Coppola signed off on the transfers as well.
bboehme: "one more off the wishlist and into my collection"
Same here, this box set and Apocalypse Now have been sitting in my wishlist for quite a long time. I almost pulled the trigger a few times but still held on until today. Got this one and ordered Apocalypse Now for $16 from B&N as well. Great deals!!
I already own this box set.. the movies are outstanding.. they look great. Anyone interested in this set should take advantage of this price. It is indeed a deal. Sometimes I wish I were more patient, cause I paid much more than 25.00. Grab it. Now.
