All good choices so far. Godfather I & II are the standards by which all others are judged. Some of the finest films ever made in any genre.

Mean Streets is also excellent. A very influential film and one of Scorsese's best.

Does anyone agree with my feeling that Godfather II was better than Godfather I?

I thought De Niro's Vito Corleone was fantastic.

Part III wasn't as bad as some make out.

Yes. Absolutely. I enjoyed that one.

I do. I think II was better. Anybody ever see The Godfather Saga? It was a chronological edit, starting with Vito Andolini (Corleone) as a boy in Sicily.

The saga was very well done, especially with the extra scenes that were not in the original movies.

Godfather III, if it was made on it's own, would have been a fine movie. But as the follow up to two absolute all-time classics, it just couldn't hold it's own by comparison.

Loved Casino and I happen to be watching The Departed right now. I may be a bit partial to that as it was filmed around me so everywhere they are in the movie I pretty much recognize.

I absolutely loved the Godfather (both 1 and 2, but 1 more than 2). I also liked Once Upon a Time in America. Both have great acting, an intriguing plot and excellent character development.
