I'm sure you can now easily tell in HD that Tom and Waltz aren't really the proper actors when they are outside in the first film. It's so bad it looks like a spoof shot

Mine arrived this morning - couldn't believe how small it is. For a 4 disc set, it is no bigger than 2 single BR cases stuck together. Looking forward to watching it next week!

I only noticed in the old DVD set because Coppola pointed it out in the commentary. On the recent Coppola restored DVDs it was blatantly obvious though, so yeah it'll be clear as day in HD. Makes you wonder how bad it must've been in the cinema.

For anyone with the US set how stupid is it that it comes with a booklet that is too big to fit in the case or slipcase

The plus side is that the films look fantastic.

WHSmith have the UK set up for pre-order for £31.49. Not bad.

Hmm, from the UK images, it looks slightly better than the US for the box.

I have managed to work my way through Godfather 1 and 2 now over the last couple of weekends and they really do look great. Very impressed with what has been done with these movies. Now I need to force myself to watch the last one.

I know Part 3 isn't anywhere near as good at Part 1 and 2 but I still like it. The final 10-15 mins are great. I love the final shot.

I'm looking forward to buying this set on Blu-Ray!

Yeah, the third's a competent film. Just unnecessary. Would have more love for it if they managed to get Duvall on board instead of George Hamilton.

Exactly my first thought when mine arrived this week. My second was how did all those plastic hinges get broken inside

Still, 2 classic films I cannot wait to watch un-interrupted.

I put my booklet in the slipcase - I slipped it in, and then allowed the plastic Blu-ray case to push it aside as I slid it into the slipcover. Seems to work fine - the booklet isn't showing any signs of crushing. Give it a go!

Packaging sounds like crap, I hope the UK release is more sensible.

Finally got around to watching 'The Godfather' on BD this afternoon, nearly a month after i got it!
Beautiful transfer, really got the tone right and great restraint on trying to make it look too '3d-HD'
Highly recommended - and such a damn good film, it had been too long

That has suprised me. I was looking at their site yesterday and they're selling "Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring" on DVD for £24.99.

I quickly removed site from bookmarks...
