Default Godfather II is a much better movie than Part I

I watched part II for this first time last night, gotta be one of the most beautifully shot movies ever. The whole thing is just lush no homo. tThey dont pay enough attention these days to how god a film looks. Theyre just obsessed with flashy camera angles and fast moving speed camera shots. This is the sort of film where nearly every single scene could be framed into a picture.

And on top of all the aesthetic crack is just the ridiculuos acting abilites on show from basically every single cast member. De Niro's screen presence, Pacino's furious subtlety in every thing he does, the Mayer Lansky dude was also, incredible.

The reason I think this is better than Part I, is not just for the 2 reasons above though. It's also because after watching Part I, my feeling was that the book was alot better, and that I had been short changed with the movie. I think anyone who had read the book before seeing part I wouldve been sligtly dissapointed with all the things that were left out of the film.

Only parts of Part II are based on the book though, so it doesnt have that problem. But I feel like even if it was all based on the book, the acting and the visualz wouldve made up for the fact that it couldnt live up to the book.

my favorite part of II is the deniro scenes. I love that turn of the century shit, the rags to riches part.

one of my favorite moments was when Patengelis brother walked into the courtroom just as he was about to snitch, that was bomb

also when micheals looking at fredo that night in havana and he realies he set him up. then theres a fucking hilarious moment just after that when he asks fredo where hes going and fredo just turns around like "i gotta get a real drink" HAHAHAHahahhaha great acting from Cazale at that point, for some reason that cracked me up.


i read that james caan got the same fee for that 5 minutes flashback at the end of the film that he got for the entire first film.

i also got this off imdb:

Quote:
This was the last film printed in the US in the Technicolor "imbibition" printing process. The lab was held open for about three weeks for the film to be ready to print, and then it was disassembled and sent to Peking, China. The imbibition process was a three-strip dye transfer process that photochemical processes have yet to equal in richness and longevity of color rendition.
which is interesting!!!

Got the box set and watch them all anually.

I dunno if i would say II is better then the first, i would class them as one movie really in seperate parts.

I love the first because of Brando as Vito obviously, and i love the whole atmosphere of Sicily when Micahael is in exile, real authentic stuff.

Part III is underrated also, the ending scene when michaels daughter gets killed and he screams is one of the finest pieces of acting i have ever seen, guaranteed goosebumps everytime...

MAN godfather III sucked ASS

Fucking ruined by the fact it was a terrible movie with some of the worst acting ever put down to film!

Sophia Coppola gave in one of the worst performanes surely ever seen in feature films! Her death scene was completely laughable!

• yes, james caan got the same money for 2 as he did for 1

• parts of me likes 2 better sometimes 1. i think the deniro story is great, but some of the shit with michael and kay bores me in part 2.

• i like part 3, but as a separate movie from 1 & 2. copola didn't want to name it part 3. he wanted to call it The Death of Michael Corleone or something like that. i think it would have been received by critics a lot better had that happened.

•the guy who played hyman roth (meyer lansky) wasn a very famous acting coach. he wasn't in a lot of movies, but he was al pacino's mentor and pacino got him in the movie.
