The Godfather on Blu-ray

Venkman here - If you are a true movie geek then you know that if you have a Blu Ray DVD player this is a must have for your collection. The Godfather and The Godfather 2 are two of the greatest movies ever made! The Godfather 3 was good, but not as good as the first two. This new DVD set wont only be on Blu Ray so if you don't have a Blu Ray player yet don't worry, you can still get them in the old fashioned Standard Def. The features on this thing are going to be amazing. Parmount has made us an offer we can't refuse. Check it out:
