Man, what a movie! A classic. You should also see part-two as the family moves into Las Vegas in a big way.

One of the greatest films of American cinema: all events are described clearly and all the characters have compatible motivations.

It took me so long to watch this movie because I thought it'd be really violent and I don't like that. But actually it was a nice surprise!. It's an excellent movie, just the right amount of violence needed, when the story required it. Great story, all characters very real, the actors performances great. As good as it can get!

Its the Godfather, what more does one have to say? Great story, dialogue and characters.
"Leave the gun. Take the cannoli." "Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes." "It's not personal... It's strictly business"

Great actors, superb direction, thrilling plot. Just an advise: if you want to watch it to learn Italian, this is not the movie for you. The characters speak in an Anglo-Sicilian language, not in Italian.

I REALLY liked the book and them decided to watch the movie. I was not disappointed. It was a great adaptation but I highly recommend reading the book because there are other plotlines in the book that addmdepth to the story.

Don Corleone: My wife is crying upstairs. I hear cars coming to the house. Consigliore of mine, I think it's time you told your Don what everyone seems to know.

Tom Hagen: I didn't tell Mama anything. I was just about to come up and wake you so that I could tell you.

Don Corleone: But you needed a drink first.
And now you've had your drink.

Tom Hagen: They shot Sonny on the causeway. He's dead

MICHAEL: ‘Well, when Johnny was first starting out, he was signed to this personal service contract; with a big band leader. And as his career got better and better, he wanted to get out of it. Now, Johnny is my father's godson. And my father went to see this band leader, and he offered him $10,000 to let Johnny go. But the band leader said no. So the next day, my father went to see him; only this time with Luca Brasi. And within an hour, he signed a release, for a certified check for $1,000.’ KAY: ‘How'd he do that?’ MICHAEL: ‘My father made him an offer he couldn't refuse.’ KAY : ‘What was that?’ MICHAEL:‘Luca Brasi held a gun to his head, and my father assured him that either his brains -- or his signature -- would be on the contract. That's a true story. That's my family, Kay. It's not me.’

Don Corleone, I am honored and grateful that you have invited me to your home on the wedding day of your daughter. And may their first child be a masculine child...
