Overrated IMO
There's a lot of better mafia movies out there including Casino and Goodfellas.

I agree that Goodfellas is better, but it's FAR from overrated. Casino was really good, but in no way was it better then Godfather.

I know it was good but when I say overrated I mean because its listed as the number 2 movie of all time according to the top 250 on IMDB and I really really dont think that.
Thats what I meant, but it is one of the best Mafia movies ever, just not as good as people make it out to be, (IMO)
only Kobe can stop Kobe.

You could make the argument that Godfather 2 is better than Godfather 1, but I would say Once Upon A Time is just as good as Godfather 1. It definitely has the best Gangsta soundtrack I ever heard

To me The Godfather 1 & 2 are just perfectly done, the character development,the scope, the acting, the plot twist, the climax, and resolution everything just worked out perfectly in both movies on a level I've never seen matched.

History Channel has been showing a cool special on The Godfather Trilogy called "The Godfather Legacy"
Really cool actually. I enjoyed all the info and interviews and opinions. Like Pacino talking about how Micheal felt etc. Great TV piece.
I may actually buy it:

Nobody has A Bronx Tale on their list?! Based on Chazz Palmintari's life. The guy who plays Sonny in the movie. Robert De Niro also stars in it. It's a great, great movie.

^^^   You're right, it is a great movie.  Not a lot of violence, but definitely gangster elements.   More of a coming of age film, but I loved it.

 

My gangster flicks, in order:

1.  Goodfellas
2.  Godfather / Godfather 2 (tie)
3.  Once Upon a Time in America
4.  Carlito's Way
5.  Menace II Society
6.  Heat
7.  Donnie Brasco
8.  Scarface
9.  Bronx Tale

10.  Casino


List revised for a third time.

And I think Public Enemies with johnny Depp playing John Dillenger was a great movie to, but it just didnt get the acclaim. I liked it though.
