    I thought it was boring, too long, and.....boring. The only part that I liked was when that soldier got shot and the tape recorded message from his mother kept playing.

    It seems like everyone I talk to, though, really really liked it. I just don't see it. :hs:

    You are one of the most profoundly retarded posters yet on OT. I bet you bash Bush too.

    I initially posted a warning saying I like most movies that people often associate with A.N, and it was recommended to me on netflix.

    But then I realized its just a movie. And logan, who joined two weeks ago and is 16, I do bash Bush and you have no right to call me retarded.

    And I'm sorry that you are so offended by the fact that I didn't like it. :ugh2: Are you accusing me of "not getting it?"

    He's not accusing you he is telling you. I dont mind that you dont like the film, that's your matter, but to say that you dont like a film cause it is boring doesnt really hold enough water. If you dont like it, actually tell us why you dont like it.

    Ok, I found it boring because I felt lime some extended scenes were not necessary. It seemed like Coppola was playing around with light a lot, and in doing so some scenes were just silence, and in my opinion, pointless. Sure, some of it was haunting, but a good 30 minutes could have been trimmed easily.

    which version did you watch? the Redux version? If so, that has 30-40 minutes put back in. If that is the case, why dont you watch the original theatrical version and then see if you like it any better.

    I kind of agree with you here, the plot was a bit well, slow, theres no denying that, but the movie was masterfully filmed and is very deep, I could see how someone could be bored watching it, but it was an excellent movie.

    btw, Full Metal Jacket is pretty cool too, but i dont think its on the same level as apoc. now

    I liked it, I thought it was a regular war flick with a little more taste, not just the regular cowboy style war movie.
