-10/10-

The Godfather Part II- 1974 6 Academy Awards- Including Best Picture and Best Director

"As close to perfection as movies get"

-10/10-

The Godfather Part III- 1990 7 Academy Award Nominee- Including Best Picture and Best Director

"Inferior to the first 2 parts of the trilogy, but still a major cinematic achievement"
