    "What I am about to say on this comment section has probably been said a gazillion time. But Imma say it again because it has to be said. The Godfather is simply one of the greatest films ever. With splendid performances from its cast, with a great direction, fantastic storyline, I believe the Godfather is among the top 10 best films of all time. So I don't find it surprising that it is included on this list. And to say rewatchable is really an understatement because I watch this movie at least once a month and it still catches my attention."

    "Don Corleone is a fictional character but I swear I get chills up my spine when I watch the Godfather films. Maybe its the old quality of the films or the superb acting skills of the cast, but I truly feel that it is one of the most lowkey menacing films ever. Add Don Corleone's intro monologue and BAM you're in his world now. Such a great classic!"

The performances of Al Pacino, James Caan, and of course, the legendeary Marlon Brando certainly puts this on my list of top movies. seeing an old NYC during the sicilian mafia period presented in such an accurate way is truly heartwarming"

    "The Godfather movie ad the series should be a must-watch for everyone. The first movie is the best one for me since it introduces the Corleone family and makes us to learn a whole new world. The movie is awarded many times by different organization and Marlon Brando was able to grab the Oscar for best leading role with his great character."

The acting and directing of this movie are pretty much perfect. I really think anybody who hasn't seen it should whether you are a fan of the genre or not. 5 stars easily."

I love all the characters and the drama and the action in it. Kind of an inside look on what crime families are all about. A must see in my opinion."

    "The Godfather is the greatest movie of all time bar none. It is a story of Italians becoming gangsters in America. It was a moving story that really helped me see the side of the story from the bad people's pint of view. I thought Italians were really awful before, but after seeing the movie I fell in love with them."

The actors that were cast all fill their roles so perfectly that it is difficult to imagine them as anyone else. The dialogue is so compelling it is difficult to realize it is only a movie."
