Is anyone watching Apocalypse Now?  Is it on Showtime back East?  The new version with 48 extra minutes will be on in another 1/2 hr on the West Coast.  I assume it started 2 1/2 hrs ago East Coast time.  I'm just wondering if anyone is watching it back East and if it is worthwhile with the new footage?

48 EXTRA minutes!?!?

man now it's the super long mother movie of all time.

The best part is when they come up on that firefight ot night and the one dudes like "It's beautiful man"

Would the blooper be the fact that they were using 30 round mags in 1967 or 1968? I watched a little but switched to DVD at the request of the GF. I haven't seen it in years. Am I right?

I believe the original title for "Apocalypse Now" was "Is This POS Ever Gonna End?"  [:D]

No, the movie takes place in early 1970 (Chef is reading a newspaper about the Manson family and Tate-LaBianca murders). I think the blooper referred to is Larry Fishburne's (now known as LAURENCE Fishburne) scene shooting up the sampan with the M60 and opening it up to reveal BLANKS.
