About the film: In what is undeniably one of the best sequels ever made, Francis Ford Coppola continues his epic Godfather trilogy with this saga of two generations of power within the Corleone family. Coppola, working once again with the author Mario Puzo, crafts two interwoven stories that work as both prequel and sequel to the original. One shows the humble Sicilian beginnings and New York rise of a young Don Vito, played by Robert De Niro in an Oscar®-winning performance for Best Supporting Actor. The other shows the ascent of Michael (Al Pacino) as the new Don. Reassembling many of the cast members who helped make The Godfather®, Coppola has produced a movie of staggering magnitude and vision, the film received eleven Academy Awards® nominations, winning six including Best Picture of 1974. A timeless classic best revered on the big screen, time tested fans and newcomers alike won’t want to miss this special event featuring exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies.

Please note that only United States residents are eligible to enter this giveaway contest. (see contest rules for further information)

BlogHub members ARE also eligible to win if they live within the Continental United States (as noted above).

Good Luck!

    “Ya Touch my Sister again, I’ll kill ya”!
    “Don’t tell me your innocent,it insults my intelligence “!
    Carlo hits Connie, Sonny goes driving to kick the crap out of him. He hits him with the garbage can lid.
    Poor Sonny eventually gets killed in revenge when Carlo teams up with Mob Guys in ambush.
    Years later when Michael his younger brother became ,The Godfather, he even fed Sonny’s death
    He throws Carlo off the scent becoming Connie and Carlo’s baby’s Godfather in church all the while planning the details.
    I love the part where Vito played by Robert DeNiro goes back to Corleone,Sicily and sees the old Don who had his Father, Mother, & Brother killed someone introduces him as the producer of Olive Oil here. He advises the old Don, this is Vito Corleone. The old man says translated, wow, you stole the name of the town.
    Vito goes to Don Cheech close to his ear as the Don is now Deaf,
    “My father’s name was Antonio Andolini and this is for you”.
    Vito stand Don Cheech in the stomach and he exclaims “ you Son of a Bitch” in Sicilian/ Italian Dialect.
    Other scene I remember well is when Kay leaves Michael. She finally admits she didn’t miscarry but aborted their child. She told him,” I knew it was s boy and I had it killed”. “Because the Sicilian thing must end”.!
    Even though I saw this Movie a million times and know the lines, I would Love to see it on the Big Screen

    This film is a classic on every level ~ directing, cinematography, screenplay, acting. The ways in which the characters and the families develop their loyalties, rules of behavior, and power in America are unpleasant and memorable at the same time

  3. There are several reasons to think The Godfather Part II is a classic. First off, it’s the only sequel to win a Best Picture when the original won the same award (LOTR Return of the King won, but the others didn’t). That standalone fact about the movie invites people to wonder why. It’s a common discussion on which one was better, Part I or II.

    Second, Francis Ford Coppola was a visionary during the 70s. Part II adds to the mythos of this universe and he uses a different approach to this versus the sequel. The juxtaposition of Vito and Michael in their rise to power is so clever. The ending to Part II. The score. The brilliant acting, cementing the careers of several. Just…everything. Even though it’s technically a sequel, I see it more as a companion to Part I.

    Everyone that loves film has probably seen this, but it’s even rarer to see it on the silver screen. Anytime a classic, like Part II, is at the theater, that is a great opportunity to see it as intended to absorb the details Coppola put into this project.

  4. Jack Cibrian says:

    The evolution of Michael’s character- and straying from his father’s code- are the highpoints of this character study. Watching young Vito evolve and mob boss Michael devolve is an interesting and sad contrast.

  5. Jennifer Zogott Levy says:

    This film is a classic because of the timelessness of its themes, and the near-perfection of its execution.

    It was a sequel to one of the most famous and watched films of all times. But unlike many sequels, it was as good as – or even superior to – its predecessor, winning a Best Picture Academy Award. I especially enjoy the story of how Vito came to America and his evolution from innocent emigrant to all-powerful neighborhood boss. A true classic film.

  7. Eileen Kotler says:

    I don’t believe Godfather 2 was a classic. Godfather 1, in my opinion, of the best films I’ve ever seen. I saw things I never saw, or heard, before. The cast was fabulous and I still like watching it.

  8. Shawn Wilson says:

    I don’t accept the premise that the 70’s are not “classic-era” and I’d argue that no decade has produced more classic American films. It is arguably the greatest decade in film history and perhaps no film exemplifies this raising of the bar better than “The Godfather: Part II.” It faced the daunting task of following up a beloved and financially-successful Best Picture winner and did so with aplomb on a far grander scale while raising the stakes for all concerned. It is bigger and more audacious than its predecessor with a complex flashback structure and multiple storylines. It makes do without Brando, elevating his Don Vito to a mythic off-screen presence in the process. It substitutes in De Niro as young Vito in an astonishing turn. Coppola was working at a level without peer at this moment in his career: with “The Godfather” (1972) and then “The Conversation” (1972) and “The Godfather: Part II” (1974) in rapid succession. He builds here on his greatest success and carries it from the gritty organized crime family drama where it began, to an operatic tragedy spanning generations. “The Godfather: Part II” is a classic film, it is a sublime continuation of the Corleone family saga and it is absolutely essential viewing for any film-lover.

  9. Christine Martick says:

    My son is 28 years old. Loves this movie very much. Would be great for him to see it on the big screen.

  10. Connie says:

    I think that The Godfather Part II is a classic (and also the reason that I love it so much) is because it is a simple story, one that Francis Ford Coppola described as the story of a man and his father at similar points in their lives, but it is also so grand in structure (spanning several decades and across several continents) and so allegorical in nature (further exploring the immigrant narrative by linking the origins of the Corleone family to the origins of America). The movie’s frequent flashbacks between Vito and Michael add so much to each of their stories and the performances from each actor in this movie is just phenomenal. I could go on and on about why this movie is a classic but simply put it is a masterpiece that one can never replicate again.

  11. Jamie S says:

    Haven’t seen this movie yet, but have heard people quote lines from it. I’ll have to watch the first one before seeing this!

  12. Richard Humbles says:

    I have not yet had the pleasure of watching this film but I have seen the first Godfather and absolutely loved everything about it and have been waiting for the right time to view Part II and what could be better than viewing it for the first time on the big screen?

    A friend of mine is a huge fan of these films and would instantly be my first choice to take along. It’s been a few years since I’ve seen the first one but it still remains so vivid in my head. I would love to see Michael’s growth as a character.
