"I'll make him an offer he can't refuse."

"I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart."

"Every time I try to get out, they pull me back in."

Think of "The Godfather" movies, and those are just three of the classic lines you'll remember. But if your Corleone memory is fuzzy, I have some good news for you: all three of Coppola's crime epics are now available on iTunes for a mere $9.99 total. (By comparison, "Goodfellas" alone currently costs $14.99.)

Yes, you're locked into the Apple ecosystem with this purchase, but at this price -- just $3.33 each, and over 9 hours of total viewing time -- who's complaining? Blu-ray sets will run you closer to $25 (Barnes & Noble) or $30 (Best Buy), while digital versions cost $42 to $45 on Vudu and Amazon, respectively. At least, that's the situation today -- we may yet see more price cuts as the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales go into high gear.

And what about the much-maligned third movie, 1990's "The Godfather Part III"? Yes, Sofia Coppola was woefully miscast. And yes, the movie suffers from the dearth of Robert Duvall. But in a post-"Phantom Menace" world, this movie may actually be better than you remember. (I'd suggest listening to Wolfpop's The Canon podcast for a deeper dive.)

So what are you waiting for? Buy "The Godfather Trilogy" at iTunes

Put another way: Leave the gun. Take the digital download.
