5. The Godfather Part II (1974)
Francis Ford Coppola won Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay (with Mario Puzo), helping to bring to life the only sequel of a Best Picture to also capture the award. This film was brilliant with the continuing the story from the original Godfather. Some even say the sequel surpasses the original in quality, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro (Best Supporting Actor) led an incredible cast!
Everything was amazing about this film from the score (Nino Rota and Carmine Coppola won Best Original Score), to the plot, and writing were all spectacular which helped create one of the best films in history. If you have not seen The Godfather II you are missing out on one of the most amazing films in history!
Brilliant list. Forgot about a lot of these so i will be spending some time watching them,especially Bridge over the River Kwai and All about Eve.. Thanks
I’m glad you enjoyed it Caroline. I try to keep my Journalistic integrity even on these lists. Some incredible films were on this list. You are very welcome!
