Also, IF you're going to order from DD, might as well wait til release week and then also get to apply either a 10% or 15% coupon to boot -- there's almost always a 10% coupon available and often enough also a 15% one...

Of course, there's a chance they might hike the price a little bit very soon after release day, but it shouldn't be worse than the new price w/ 10% coupon...

There's a 10% DD coupon floating around now. There usually is at any given moment. I used it on my preorder this morning.

DD seems to only have 15% off these days when items are in stock. Never used to be like that but then when they first opened they had 20-25% off sales 20 years ago.

I am so over The Godfather, I'll pass. It was good for awhile but enough is enough.

Unless they do it unprompted, people have emailed them to ask for a price match on an upcoming title and sometimes they change the price. Someone might need to make Amazon aware of DD’s price.
Otherwise when you preorder an item from them, if the price ever goes down on Amazon before it ships, you will always get the lowest price they offered.

Amazon is the easiest place to cancel an order so if it doesn’t go to a price that you feel is low enough you cancel before it ships.
Okay, that’s not exactly the price matching guarantee I expected when you mentioned it.

I know I will always get the lowest price on Amazon when preordering but I am not very confident I can ask them to drop a disc price by $30 just because another etailer has it for less.

I know it will never happen as both Coppola and Pacino have "disavowed it" but I so love the COMPLETE NOVEL FOR TELEVISION or whatever its called, It had all the extra scenes and it was so rich and I would love to have it remastered. I still have the ancient laser disc but...its not the same.

Best Buy does this if you contact them over chat. But they’ll only match the price AFTER the release date. So you can preorder, and they do like Amazon and give the lowest price during the pre-order period. Then once it ships, if someone is still offering it cheaper, you can get an agent to refund the difference.

They’ll match through the end of the return period too.

That version was fully remastered in HD and has aired several times on HBO. I don’t know if it’ll ever come out on disc but if you’re savvy with a DVR hopefully you can record a copy someday.

That would be ideal for Paramount+.

I forgot those might work for preorders. They're not reusable though, right? Think that's partly why I haven't used them yet.

Guess I'll wait a bit and then preorder.

I also have some BB GC + a limited time $10 rewards code I might want to use on this if Best Buy offers it at this price by release date, which might well happen -- actually, they also generally do PM too though not against coupons...

Was it just the first two movies or did they add GF Part III to it as well? I swear I saw a "nine hour" version with all three on HBO before.

The one I saw was Parts 1 and 2. It looks like it ran about 7 hours and 4 minutes.

There’s also the four part “novel for television” version that AMC ran around 2012 that first aired on network TV in the 70s. It’s a less polished, less complete version of what HBO ran but is interesting for historical purposes. That runs about 6 1/2 hours and has opening and end credits for each part.

And has deleted footage we haven't seen elsewhere. Starting around 2 minutes into this, you'll see additional Godfather Part II material playing under the credits, including Connie taking care of an older Michael. An 18 year old Anthony is supposed to show up here. At 3:21 you can see Michael and Anthony walking together. This was the scripted ending to Part II.



And while going down that rabbit hole, I found this alternate "Last time on The Godfather" opening to Part III which aired on AMC. It has a few outtakes of older Michael sitting around.
