You Can Watch The Godfather on YouTube for Free (Update: No You Can't)

If you ask any red-blooded male (or hell, blue-blooded too) what their favorite movie is, I bet you anyone with half a brain will say The Godfather. Amazingly, Francis Ford Coppola's entire masterpiece is now on YouTube for free.


I love the video description:

The aging patriarch of an organized crime dynasty transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son.

I now know how I'm going to spend the next 3 hours at work. Interesting side nugget: the video was uploaded by SonyPicturesUK which is a little weird because The Godfather was a Paramount Pictures flick. I don't really care what that means (maybe international distribution or something?) because THE GODFATHER. DON CORLEONE. MICHAEL! ON YOUTUBE. FOR FREE. [YouTube via The Next Web]

Update: Well, it looks like The Godfather was uploaded illegally by a fake account. Which means YouTube has since killed 'SonyPicturesUK' (after pulling the gun from the toilet or something like that). I'm sad now.

You can keep up with Casey Chan, the author of this post, on Twitter or Facebook.




I'm one of the minority who just doesn't get the appeal of this movie. I have seen bits and pieces when it is on bravo or a&e but I sat down one evening to watch it and couldn't get more than 10 minutes in to it.

It's not the mafia angle. I enjoy goodfellas, bronx tale, casino. Maybe I tried watching this movie too late and it just looks dated to me. I dunno.

Am I the only one though?
