Nah, there were three. The first one had Vito (who's my avatar). The second one had Michael as the new Godfather, succeeding Vito after his death. And finally, the third one had Michael as the Godfather who was now much older, his kids have become much older and his daughter's boyfriend eventually becomes the new Godfather. While I don't think the third one was as good as the first two, it was still good and the ending was very tragic.

As for the OP, I think the LOTR trilogy was better than the Batman one.
He's saying he thought the 3rd one was so bad it shouldn't be considered a Godfather film.
As for me nothing can beat the true scale of LOTR.

LOTR by far!!! LOTR, Star Wars and Back To The Future are best trilogies/Sagas ever made!

That clip gives me goosbumps. Easily my favorite scene in any film.

LOTR by a mile, though I love the new Batman films. But for me the storyline and the characters and the morals of LITR are so much deeper and more meaningful. Batman is basically about explosions (though awesome explosions) whereas at the heart of LOTR is the importance of friendship and love for ones home, which are universal values.

Also the love that went into making LOTR is breathtaking, the sets and costumes, weapons and armour are incredible, all so detailed and beautifully designed. the music is incredible as well, as is the cinematography and the acting.

I've probably watched each of the three films more times than any other film and I never get tired of them.
The scene is just incredible, in the extended version when you hear the horns in the background with Gandalf and the Witch King. :sogood:

I do disagree with Batman just being about explosions thou. Each film had a particular vision which I believe were Fear (Begins), Chaos (Dark Knight) and Pain (Rises).

Batman is a really good trilogy but I would have to say LOTR because its so amazing. I've probably seen it so many times that I no most of the dialogue. I've even started to read the books

Sorry, my bad. It's such a long time since I watched the third one. Maybe you're right that it's worse than I remember it to be. But I definitely remember and agree that the third one wasn't as good as the first two and probably shouldn't be counted as a real Godfather movie.

I can't choose, maybe LOTR just clips it, just because I wasn't a big fan of Batman Begins, but the other two were spectacular films.

LOTR! I can't really watch Batman with a straight face because of the husky voice thing he does when he's batman.

I love both but I'd have to go with LOTR purely because of the fact it was meant to be a storyline that could not be made in to a movie and yet they came up with one of the best trilogy's of all time.

They are both incredible in terms of cast and effects, but I have to give to LOTR in terms of original screenplay/story and music. Although Nolan did put his own mark on Batman his trilogy is still part of a long line Batman films, tv shows and other ventures. It isn't really any darker than some of the comics so not overly original in my opinion.

Plus the LOTR films got better with each installant, for me anyway, but Nolan's Batman deteriorated. They are still excellent in comparison to a lot of other films but in my opinion Batman Begins was the best. I didn't understand the hype about The Dark Knight, and Dark Knight Rise is probably on par with its predecessor.

The original Indiana Jones trilogy beats them both out though.
Hate to break it to you but LOTR was based very closely on 3 big long books.

Batman was great, but Lord of the Rings.

and there were only two Godfather films..
The film's success spawned two sequels: The Godfather Part II in 1974, and The Godfather Part III in 1990.

I refer you to my earlier comment on this matter. :rolleyes:

There are only 2 Godfather films in the same way there are only 3 Indiana Jones movies.

I remember it being pretty terrible. Me and my brothers had 'Godfather Thursdays' for a few weeks, and obviously in light of 1 and 2, 3 is an absolute abomination.

Despite being a great director, Sophia Ford Coppola (plays Michael's daughter) is a terrible terrible acress.

I really enjoyed the Batman trilogy, but it's no LOTR. They're hardly comparable, to be honest, but LOTR is the best trilogy ever made, probably that ever will be made. I really do hope the two Hobbit films maintain the high standard.

This, so much. Watching the behind-the-scenes and commentary and seeing exactly how many people were involved in making things such as the weaponry and the settings and how much care they had for it.

Also, best music.
