When I last watched it on my much smaller TV, I remember wondering why some were disappointed with this disc, so I somewhat agree. I’ll see how Part 2 looks in the next couple of weeks.

Jeez I continue to think those two discs are absolutely ravishing. I've seen an IB Tech Print of Godfather 2 and think the transfer we are given is superb.

Well, I think it looks pretty crap on my 40" monitor. Definitely high time for an upgrade.

There really needs to be a new restoration and Blu-ray of The Godfather. I projected that tonight and it is really showing its limitations. Any dark scenes are just covered in highly digital, often coloured noise. The colour timing is also highly inconsistent from shot to shot even within the same scene. Maybe this 4k resto is just a product of its time, but it’s pretty crap.

I still think the BDs on my 60" 1080p look superb. But, I can imagine the limitations past 80" or so. I can't imagine this not getting a 4K BD release.


I projected Part I last night and was pretty pleased with the presentation. There are some definite limitations and high grain levels in some low-light shots, but I'm not convinced that those are not limitations of the source material. There's also a good bit of historical stock-footage that was (to me) noticeable for the first time.

I'm sure those issues could be smoothed out if you were so inclined, but I'm not sure that would make anyone happy either.

Don't forget, I believe the OCN of Godfather is long gone...so it's certainly not a perfect first gen source.
