Why do people keep bringing up this piece of crap film. I use the word
"film" loosely.

If you catagorize it as a sleep aid or perhaps a comedy, it's a movie
great.

Nobody can parady brando as well as brando himself.

But if Joseph Conrad were alive today, he probably would have written, "It
sucks," rather than, "the horror, the horror".

Then maybe you should try posting something that would invite intelligent
discussion, rather than drivel that makes you look like an immature idiot.

Well, then, why don't you post something intelligent and coherent
about your dislike -- like the inadequacy of Brando's performance, or
the way the film doesn't really have a working third act? That might
get some people to explain to you why they like it.

Yeah, I heard he was "All-American" in writing "IT SUCKS" three years running.

I've never gotten over how it advertised itself as: 'THE GREATEST FILM OF
ALL TIME'.

I wonder who was mistaken for God. Who imparted this alleged View
Comprehending All Eternity? Was it:

Coppola? (any Coppola, maybe even widdle Nicky or Sofia...)

Brando?

Dracula as a rep of Satan?

Or maybe that smoke and that smell WASN'T napalm in the morning.

David Mills, I know it's been 20+ years since you started this thread, but I want to say that I also think Apocalypse Now sucks, like, it is a terrible movie. Entire film is pretentious self-righteous wankery.

It may be PSRWank, but it is still a great film. Mind blowing. I have nothing against the director, but I cannot stand his wife. I watched the making of AN, and she praised villagers because they tortured pigs before slaughter. She said they were a strong people. I think they were a weak ignorant people. The pigs were stuck with pointed sticks until they were frothing at the mouth.

It's good to have hobbies. There's a lot of movies I consider irksome that
others consider fabulous. I don't even trouble myself to remember which ones
they are. Everybody has their own taste, and writing "it sucks" once seems
like too much labor.

It's like still complaining about a burger you got at Denny's in 1988.

I can't seem to build up a head of steam that lasts more than a few days over
the many hundreds of lesser works among the the many thousands of films. I saw
"Welcome to L.A." last week. Jeez that was a waste of time. I don't think I'll
spend another 8 seconds thinking about it.

But I guess that's what social media is for.
