Francis Ford Coppola’s epic masterpiece features Marlon Brando in his Oscar©-winning role as the patriarch of the Corleone family.

This review is based on the “Part 1″ disc from the box set. I literally can’t believe that people are saying that there’s no difference between this and the DVD version. I had to do a side-by-side comparison to make sure, but there’s no question that this new blu-ray is noticeably more detailed on a 40” LCD set.

It’s also got a noticeably different color balance, in accordance with cinematographer Gordon Willis’s original instructions, which makes it that much more baffling that people can’t see any difference. In addition to the color difference, there is noticeably more detail, especially in darker scenes.

Yes, it’s dark; yes it’s grainy. That’s the way it was shot. But if you are any kind of a fan of this movie, you owe it to yourself to see this beautiful new restoration.

This (and Part II) is my number one favorite movie of all times, it is a Five Star Masterpiece and I watch it at least once or twice a year, enjoying it every time. It is a shame that this great movie got such a poor Blu-ray conversion so this rating goes to the Blu-ray conversion only.

I had the VHS set way back then, I still have the Godfather trilogy DVD set which is excellent and very enjoyable. So I purchased the Blu-ray version of the Godfather and Godfather Part II and I am VERY DISAPPOINTED(Godfather Part III is an afterthought anyway and does not measure up to the first two).

I agree with every negative remarks on this conversion, although the bad film grain only noticeable on a few short cuts and it does not bother me too much but I do not like the excessive contrast throughout the film where all the sunlit outside takes are just plain terrible. All the highlights are completely washed out so this disk for me is a piece of junk. Unfortunately I took the seal and wrapping off from Part II and I cannot send it back to Amazon, so they just will sit on the shelf and collecting dust.

If you have the DVD version and purchased the Blu-ray like I did, do yourself a favor and put the DVD in a good upscaling DVD player and the Blu-ray version in the other one, play them at the same time the go back and forth and compare the two like I did. You will not believe how much the DVD version is better. They improved the sound output on the Blu-ray version so not only the front 3 speakers are on most of the time but all five+1, however you have to crank up the volume substantially to hear the voice parts while the other part become way too loud, so I do not like the “enhanced” sound output either.

If you have the DVD set and are thinking about to buy the Blu-ray versions just hang onto the DVD set which is just as sharp on my Onkyo upscaling DVD player as the Blu-ray with a lot better image quality, contrast and colors.

All in all I am VERY DISAPPOINTED and would not recommend wasting your money on the Godfather Blu-ray conversions.

I saw this classic movie for the first time ever this weekend. The beginning gets you hooked although I feel it has a couple slow parts to it. Overall, it is worth seeing. However, I agree with another customer that the quality of this blu ray is so bad, they should stick with standard DVD until they figure out a way to make it better. I have seen movies from the 1960’s that look fabulous like James Bond. However, this movie, although worth watching, needs a major overhaul in picture quality.

One of the finest movies ever made deserved a perfect transfer to blu-ray. Is this really the best that can be done? I doubt it; plenty of other old movies look far far better than this on blu-ray. The picture is grainy, as was the original print to some degree, but this lacks the warmth and depth of the cinema print, and compared directly to my upconverted dvd on a 42″ Samsung LED via new PS3, is barely better.

There are some color variations and a little more black depth, but hardly enough for this to be called a “restoration”. I see this every summer at our old art house theatre here, and that print is a MILE better than this, and always has been, year in and out since the 70s. I understand that we all love this movie so much that we want this to be close to the original theatrical print, but it just isn’t. It might be a little better than the dvd, but so what? That was never great to begin with.

Plus, the price is a joke, especially considering the only extra is the “controversial” director’s commentary, which isn’t very controversial at all to my ears, though it is occasionally interesting.

Coppola may moan about greedy studio execs on his commentary, but his continual milking of these films while adding little of value seems to indicate that he too is becoming rather greedy.

Stick with your dvd until Coppola makes us an offer we really can’t refuse.

I’m very disappointed in the Blu-ray version of The Godfather. The picture quality, compared with the DVD version (which I also have), is very bad — it is noticeably darker than the DVD – so much as to make it almost unwatchable. Parts are also very grainy (pixalated?). The color is super saturated, adding to the darkness. This is certainly not what I expected when shelling out for the Blu-ray edition. It is not worthy of the description “Restoration”.
