Inferior.

Sony Product placement at 13 min yonder

Re: Watching Apocalypse Now Redux (1979)

I'll never watch that version again…it veered far too much into pretension & became rather dull.

Re: Watching Apocalypse Now Redux (1979)

The French plantation scene in particular ruined the pacing of the film and diverted away from the story and its impact. The original edit was tight and kept the narrative cohesive.

Brando saved that picture. Milius' original ending would have been awful.

Re: Watching Apocalypse Now Redux (1979)

You're right, it was that scene…I was itching for it to get going again.

Brando? Hmm, I've usually lost a bit of focus by the time he turns up, & have never got on with all his head-scratching & rather pretentious talk.

What had Millius written?

Re: Watching Apocalypse Now Redux (1979)

Brando rewrote the script for Coppola and Milius' ending was a big action piece with shoot out at the end including helicopters to the rescue something like that).

Recklessness is Common

Re: Watching Apocalypse Now Redux (1979)

That movie is terrible, along with the original version. Very overrated, one of the few movies where I really don't understand why it's so critically acclaimed.
