The Godfather (1 2 or 3 vs Goodfellas)

I prefer Goodfellas, better paced IMO of course, plus the cast is more convincing

I voted GF1. But I would rank them:

Godfather I
Goodfellas
Godfather II
Godfather III

I can't decide between Goodfellas and GFII. OK, so I like De Nero. And why in heavens name is GFIII in this poll. Maybe it should have been lumped in with the Twicky option so it would get at least one vote.

Godfather 2.

Pacino's performance, to me, is one of the top two or three best performances i've ever seen. Doesn't matter how many times I see it, I'm still blown away..

Godfather II, barely having an edge over Godfather I, mostly due to the incredible ending.

The Godfather I is best. No contest.

Godfather II follows closely behind, though I will contest to my dying days that the movie could've been five or ten minutes shorter.

Goodfellas comes in third, though it's still a helluva movie.

Godfather III is an abomination of human endeavor.

After the Narcs bust Henry there's only like 5 minutes left in the film. Sorry if you were bored

I'll take any of the three Godfather films over Goodfellas.

Scorcese made a great film, but I can't get past the awful acting. Ray Liotta should've quit after Field of Dreams.
