Coppola by far.
I'm going with one of the best sequels ever made.
The Godfather II...and...umm....not close.
Pretty close for me as both are in my top 15. The Godfather Part II has the edge.
The Godfather Part II
GF II has the historical edge and is a timeless classic. Batman Begins is a great superhero film BUT is not as good as the Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. Especially The Dark Knight would be more of a contest
Both films can be seen as origins, for Bruce Wayne and Vito Corleone. Whereas GF2 has to split the time frames between Vito and his son, Michael, BB allows both the past and present timelines to focus on the same character. In that respect, BB may have the tighter narrative.
To ugh choice but I give it to the Godfather
GF2 is more memorable and powerful.
The Godfather Part 2 chooses two show two narratives in order to strengthen its themes and characters, it isn't simply there because they wanted to develop Vito more. Batman Begins has an amazing story, up until the pretty weak 3rd act, in which it just doesn't work out nearly as well. Godfather 2 is about as close as we're going to get to a perfect movie, so yeah gonna go with that.
