    Probably one of the most difficult questions there is.
    Both Godfather 1 and 2 are both great, but. I think I may like 2 a bit better.

    But my number one would probably have to be the one I watched again a few weeks back for the bajillionth time. Heavy duty movie. :cool:
    Papillon

    The Godfather

    The Good The Bad & The Ugly is a very close second.

    I watched part2 a couple years ago on an internet (stealing) stream , I watched the first half when they were in Italy with the English subtitles , Then it went to the 2nd half and it was in Fucking Italian :jj: I was pissed.

    B.T.W. I still need to find Papillon and re-watch it . :thumbup2:

    I can watch anything Eastwood , Especially the spaghetti westerns.

    I have a box set of The Godfather Complete Epic, in a leather bound box, complete with a book of photos and Corleone family tree. Coppola spliced 1 and 2 together in chronological order for the epic, and included some deleted scenes. There is a fan made "recreation" using the new DVDs and the VHS footage of the Epic available on Demoniod. It's pretty cool if you've never seen it. Bravo or USA sometimes run it around the holidays.


    Here's some Godfather trivia. What color represented evil in the Godfather movies?

    Is the deluxe boxset you have the 3 VHS tape compilation or is the deluxe edition currently available as a commercial dvd?
    I had the 3 VHS deluxe boxset but sold it on eBay for a bunch of money back when you could make a bunch of money for that kind of stuff on eBay.
    I'm going to download the deal you're talking about from Demonoid.
    When I talk about The Godfather I & II being in my top 10 of favorite movies- I consider both parts as one single film.
    Stupid, I know but I can't watch The Godfather without following it immediately with Godfather II.
    I'm not a fan of The Godfather III. I've seen it 3 or 4 times but without Duvall... it just doesn't reach me.

    It's the VHS version. Even Coppola says he did 3 for the money. It definitely shows.

    Did you know about the color they used to represent death in the movies? It's really cool wants you realize it...

    Oranges are on the table setting in Hollywood producer Jack Woltz's dining room.

    Oranges are on the table in front of Corleone enemies Barzini and Tattaglia at the meeting of the Dons.

    During Connie's wedding, Tessio eats an orange, foreshadowing his death.

    Sonny Corleone drives past a billboard promoting Florida Oranges shortly before being ambushed at the turnpike tollbooth.

    When Michael is in Sicily, he meets a woman named Appolonia, which means orange.

    When he first meets her, she is under an orange tree.

    Don Fannucci (the black hand), is seen handling an orange before he is killed by a young Vito.

    When Vito is shot, he just purchased oranges from a street vendor.

    When he dies in the garden, he has an orange peel in his mouth.

    When Michael is discussing with Tom and Rocco how they're going to assassinate Roth, Michael is eating an orange.

    Johnny Ola brings Michael Corleone an ORANGE from Florida in GFII, and it's from Hymen Roth who of course wants to kill Michael.

    Connie's husband is wearing an orange suit when Sonny beats him up.

    Orange suite case bein placed in the trunk before Connie's husband gets strangled in the car.

    Baptism scene is loaded with orange. Priest's robes, guy giving Moe Green a massage, orange shirt of the gunman in the lobby,lady in orange on the steps.

    Connie wears an orange colored dress at end of movie while she commits murder.

    Orange fell out of the bowl on the table in the room where the Commision had a sesion just a few seconds before the helicopter attack in GF III.

    When Michael falls ill, he needs OJ in the Vatican.

    Those are just the main ones I can remember. I'm sure there are more. This isn't just internet conspiracy theory stuff. Coppola has written about this in a few different books.

    In the Sopranos, Tony buys a bottle of orange juice and is followed by an attempted murder on his life by the orders of Uncle Junior.
