Paramount has gone all out for this special release, including every single extra from the mammoth 2002 DVD box along with quite a few more. First up, let's take a look at the new extras.
The Masterpiece That Almost Wanted is an informative piece which discusses the political and cultural issues that were dogging filmmaking in the early 70's, which formulated the production of the film.
Godfather World uses many scenes from animated and live action offerings including The Sopranos and The Simpsons, in conjunction with interviews to paint a picture of the massive contribution that the Godfather has made to popular culture.
When the Shooting stopped is a great piece which talks about Francis Ford Coppolas' battle with the studio over the final cut of the film. I applaud the current regime at Paramount for not glossing over these battles.
Emulsional Rescue is a fairly lengthy look at the restoration of the film. It's no secret that the masters of the film where in such bad shape before restoration begun, but the results speak for themselves. Watching this piece definitely makes me appreciate it just that little bit more.
The Godfather on the Red Carpet is a fairly redundant series of interviews taken from the Hollywood premiere of Cloverfield from earlier this year.
Four short films from the Godfather is little more than four off-cuts from the main documentaries.
Three BD Java infused extras The Family Tree, Crime Organization Chart and Connie and Carlo's Wedding Album breakdown the myriads of characters from all three films, showing how they are related and where their loyalties lie.
The 2001 DVD archive presents all the extras from the previous DVD release of the film. It looks like they've taken an ISO of the original disc and authored that to the new Blu-ray. There is an awful lot of footage to be found in here, from vintage making of segments, to deleted and extended scenes. I do dislike its presentation; however, it should have been added to the disc properly rather than presented in its own area.
