    A lot of people say 2 and they have a case but I just think the first film was the greatest movie ever made

    The original was the better of the two.

    Not to say that 2 doesn't have it's merits; it's an amazing movie but 1 was great, groundbreaking, and authentic with great actors.

    Without 1 there is no 2.

    Both brilliant but 1 has Brando and a very FRESH performance from Pacino, who's still great in 2 but overshadowed by De Niro. Scripts are about equal.

    2 is great in it's own right, but the original is better. I prefer the Epic, best of both worlds.

    Really? I can't watch the epic, I prefer watching them as they were released.

    One thing I really wish is that Coppola had made a version including the deleted scenes--I could take the time to edit them in for my own benefit but I'm too lazy--much like he did with the Apocalypse Now Redux and The Outsiders.

    Never seen either one. Don't like crime movies.

    Now if they had a robot or spaceship or monster in either one...

    Godfather1 and 2 are both great, but I would say 1 is the best. You really appreciate the quality of these films when you compare them to the other films released during that era.

    Tesio was great too and you don't even see it. "Tell mike it was only business. I always liked him."
