Most would probably say the second, but I liked the first one better.
I voted the first. The second was great and had DeNiro but the ending was just too tragic for me to take with Fredo.
I liked the Flashback scenes in II the most, but I prefer I overall.
I couldn't get past the first fifteen minutes of number 2. They were in Italy and it just started way to show and boring. Maybe I need to go back and try and watch it or fast forward.
Third. Casino is the best Italian mafia movie ever though, and in general I find Godfather to be *way* overrated.
I'm having a hard time splitting them, but part one because Sonny.
Wow didn't expect a single vote for 3.
The first one because of Santino
Damn, beat me to it
Part 1. Sonny and Brando/Vito tipping things in it's favor.
First because of Brando.
I think Part I and II are equal in quality, but a lot of people will say Part II is better. I prefer watching Part 1, I like the story the most and I can watch it a couple times a week without getting tired of it.
third is a much better movie IMO.
Though it is less "mafiosa" and doesnt have as much action, as a movie, it is much much better than the first.
whenever these Godfather threads came up, I use to always vote for part 1
After re-watching the first two films recently, I'm going to change my opinion to part 2 being the strongest film. Godfather 1 obviously has some iconic characters in Vito and Sonny and many scenes that will forever be remembered by many.
But I thought part 2 was a better film overall.
part 2,its my GOAT
The second movie's strength, in my opinion, comes from the DeNiro scenes as young Vito.
Both are great movies overall though.
All three are legenday IMO. But at gunpoint, I'd have to say the first one is the best.
Ginger, as a character, ruins Casino for me. She's more infuriating than Corporal Upham in Saving Private Ryan.
pretty weird thread. I watched 1 yesterday and 2 today. I've been reading the imbd trivia and godfather wiki all day. There's a ton of backstory not in the movie and that enhances the story a lot. There's also some cool deleted scenes on youtube. I like the one of Don Fanucci being attacked that was cut. It explains a good bit of Vito's actions.
I had seen both a few times but probably haven't watched either in almost 15 years. I thought 1 was vastly superior. Two was very good. The flashbacks are the highlight but i wasn't as much a fan of the Cuba/Miami stuff and political things. It dragged on in the middle for a bit.
I think the older setting is just cooler at the end of the day. The old NY mafia stuff is better than the newer Mafia settings.
