The Godfather Part II (1974)

The Godfather Part II (56:42)

Godfather Part II Mike & Fredo

The crime sage continues in our 88th edition of the T100P. Al Pacino and John Cazale are outstanding, although the rest of the cast kills it too. Francis Coppola’s second-most worshipped film also features Robert De Niro aping Brando as young Vito. Is this the equal of Part I…or even better? Our long chat about a long movie requires your rapt attention! And to get through our opus, order up some Sparkplug Coffee.

One thought on “The Godfather Part II (1974)

  1. I watched Godfather II once about ten years ago, and the only thing I remember about it is that of the trilogy, this was the film that took the longest to drive me crazy with boredom. I had actually planned to re-watch II and III shortly after I re-watched the first film last summer, but I changed my mind after the first one completely failed to do it for me. Life’s too short.

    I also remember, just in case you’re not quite bewildered enough with me yet, that I didn’t dislike Part III any more than I had the first two.
