Re: The Godfather Trilogy - 4K UHD

About that phantom punch:

“That one miss when he throws that punch at me and I react… everybody knows [the punch is actually] about six inches away from me,” he recalls. “I asked Francis Ford Coppola at the 25th anniversary, ‘Why didn’t you fix that?’ Because we had cameras on the roof, cameras all over. We had every angle they needed to fix it, but they couldn’t touch it. Once you win an Oscar, you can’t touch that negative.”

I'm assuming that was Coppola's decision to leave it. The main post was that even though Sonny landed a fake punch, he really did break a couple of Carlo's ribs. Those two didn't get along and Caan was a bit of a maniac in real life in those days.

Re: The Godfather Trilogy - 4K UHD

If you pay close attention to most standard Hollywood fare from the 50s and 60s, the fights look ridiculously poor with plenty of missed punches and dodgy choreography. It's why Hong Kong cinema and their martial arts films quickly developed an immense fan base.

And the blood in all those movies looked like house paint up until the late 70s.

It’s not even in a good quality ghost catcher, so I’ll cancel.

Re: The Godfather Trilogy - 4K UHD

I just ordered the regular 4K set. I had no need for that oversized book, portraits and discs that you’ll have issues sliding out.

Re: The Godfather Trilogy - 4K UHD

Nice. That drops my Pre-Order price even more.


I watched Jeff from the Films at Home YouTube channel's review of the set yesterday and he's very pleased with it. He actually said the new 4K transfers for 2 and 3 are even better than 1 even though 1 is good. And all the legacy bonus material is in this set, so you can feel free to dump your old ones including the new Part 3 BD that came out recently.

Re: The Godfather Trilogy - 4K UHD

I can say the transfers are great. I'm not a fan of the digi-pak style packaging (like the original DVD release). Wish they had just gone with an HD keep case where one could hold all five discs. Issue is, if the cardboard gets damaged, I'm SOL (whereas a keep case gets damaged, I can order a new one to replace it).

Re: The Godfather Trilogy - 4K UHD

I was hoping the discs would be separate from the book - funny how these "collector's" sets always manage to provide worse packaging than the standard releases, isn't it?

Re: The Godfather Trilogy - 4K UHD

Yup, mine shipped too.

Since I just watched The Godfather last month at AMC Theatres, I will probably jump into the bonus material for it and then get into the restored part 2 and eventually 3.

Mine shipped over the weekend from Deep Discount - should be here this week. My AWIL which was also part of this order arrived today and I wasn't charged additional shipping for splitting the order.

Re: The Godfather Trilogy - 4K UHD

Is the Blu-ray set anything new or just same remaster as last restored collection or whatever? Anything new in this 50th set in terms of extras or something?
