#2. The Godfather: Part II (1974)

- Director: Francis Ford Coppola

- IMDb user rating: 9.0

- Metascore: 90

- Runtime: 202 minutes

A rare sequel thought to be not only as good but possibly better than the original film is “The Godfather: Part II.” Coppola’s epic crime film tells two stories: one focusing on Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) attempting to keep order as the new Don of the family, and another flashing back to his father Vito Corleone (Robert De Niro) from his Sicilian childhood to his arrival in America. The film is thought to be the finest work from Coppola, Pacino, and De Niro, with De Niro and Coppola winning Oscars for their roles. It is the first sequel to win the Best Picture award.
