    You're giving a lot of credit to Godfather Part 3.

    The first two Godfather films were among the best Mafia movies ever made...Part 3 was complete crap IMHO.

    I'm going to have to watch the Godfather movies again since I can only recall a few things, but for some reason I remember liking The Godfather 2 more than The Godfather. The Godfather 3 is pure rubbish.


    Thought Casino was better than Goodfellas.


    Casino is the best of all of them in my opinion...one of those I like to watch from time to time. Can't say the same for the other movies.

    The helicopter ambush was intense though.

    To redeem myself, I own GF 1 and 2 on Blu ray. Did not get the 3rd. Also have Goodfellas and Casino on Blu. Another one I own is Mean Streets

    The Godfather is not only the best mafia movie, it is one of the greatest movies of all time. That said, the first time you see a movie is when it makes it's greatest impact. I was too young to appreciate The Godfather when it was released. I VERY much enjoyed Goodfellas, even more than The Godfather.
    I had a MUCH better understanding of organized crime at the time of Goodfellas, as I had gotten to know a few wiseguy types over the years.

    While I truly enjoy the Godfather trilogy, (especially GF I and II), the absolute best 'mafia type movie' is:

    "Once Upon A Time in America".



    Period.

    That scene was off the hook! Seems like I remember another scene, something about a parade that was pretty awesome too. The movie itself wasn't great, but it did have a couple really cool scenes.

    I enjoy all of the above movies. But the best IMO wasn't even a released movie. It's the Coppola Restoration of the Godfathers I and II. Synching the two movies so they go chronologically in order.
