    It's a classic. Some great quotable lines. Many memorable scenes. Disturbing and very thought-provoking for anyone with a functioning conscience.

    It really is one of the better movies of all time.

    And Godfather II is just as good, if not better. Godfather III...eh...has a couple quotable lines, but not really up to the standards of the previous films.

    What sequels would you suggest that are up to par of the original?

    I like three - it was about trying to find redemption...

    You mean, in film generally? Well, as mentioned, Godfather II, but off the top of my head, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Trolls 2, Rocky 4, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness, Spider-Man 2, Hellboy 2, The Dark Knight, From Russia With Love (also On Her Majesty's Secret Service, The Living Daylights, GoldenEye, and Casino Royale, which are the only Bond films I really like), Mad Max Fury Road.
