Don't ask me how this film entertains so marvelously. Its predecessor had the same embellishment, but not as strongly. THE GODFATHER PART II is a whopping three hours and twenty minutes, but once an hour has passed by, it will only have felt like twenty minutes, if that. Furth...

Thirty-seven years after this came out, it is still one of the most thrilling movies out there. Al Pacino and Diane Keaton have to be the most unlikely couple ever cooked up by Hollywood, but their chemistry is real. The story lines never seem implausable and they succeed in ma...

The sequel to Coppola's classic mafia crime story both continues the events around Michael Corleone and takes us back to his father's life story. Michael, wonderfully portrayed by Al Pacino, seems to get more ruthless, unsympathetic and paranoid while ruling his empire with an ir...

One of the best sequels of all time, the depth of this one exceeds it's predecessor. DeNiro and Pacino are amazing.

Pacinio is even better than Brando and Coppola shows his mastery as director again, but this one suffers from the overblown script.

The second Godfather is packed with great scenes, and particularly shines when flashing back to Vito Corleone's youth in Sicily, where de Niro slowly brings the origin story to life directly from Puzo's pages.
But to the masses of people who cite this film as one of the few w...

The Godfather Part 2 is considered the greatest sequel that has ever been made and also considered the greatest film ever made by many people, and I can honestly this movie is totally worthy of those two statements. The plot continues the story of the Corleone family and the new...

As I have said in all of the 100 reviews I have written up to this point, if there is one thing I despise it would have to be sequels. Now, for those that are new, the reason why is simple: sequels next to never live up to their potential and end up destroying the story that the ...
