Despite the rather thorough drubbing it suffered at the hands of some of the nation's most prestigious critics, \"Premonition\" is actually a pretty well-thought-out and tightly wound thriller, given emotion and heart by its star, Sandra Bullock. It's not a movie I would be wiling to go to the mat for, but as throwaway thrillers go, this one is really not half bad. Bullock plays Linda Quinn Hanson, a suburban mother of two, who receives the shattering news that her husband has been killed in an auto accident. However, when she wakes up the next morning, she finds him, strangely, sitting in the kitchen, suddenly alive and well, benignly sipping coffee before heading off to work. The question quickly arises, did she dream the story of his death, is she dreaming now, or is she undergoing some sort of mental crisis precipitated by the shock of her loss Or is she caught in some sort of bizarre time warp that allows her to jump back and forth between the periods before and after his \"death,\" and, if so, might she be able to step in and alter the course of events to prevent the accident from happening in the first place In both concept and form, \"Premonition\" is pretty much an assembly-line thriller designed to tweak the audience's brain cells for a couple of hours before sending everyone home with not a whole heck of a lot left to think about once it's over. Still, it's intriguing enough while it lasts and only the true nitpickers among us will feel compelled to put its twists and turns in logic under the scrutiny of a critical microscope. Despite a few weak moments in her performance, Bullock actually makes us care about the character and the very strange thing that is happening to her.\"The Premonition\" is by no means a classic - or even first rate - chiller, but those with a few spare hours on their hands and a penchant for brain-puzzlers could do worse than check it out.
Well, that did work, thank you. Torrent was kept under \"Hidden\" label and wouldn't work. Can't understand though, why did that happen. I don't always keep uTorrent open, so most of the time updates get to me whenever the program is automatically opened when I download a torrent file. I also usually do the updates on the spot and then re-run the torrent file. I find it strange it doesn't work like that any more.
Another version of Apocalypse Now has floated around over the years: a bootleg copy of the film's first assembly cut. An assembly cut is the very first edit of a film, which features every scene that was shot and is intended only for the creative team to view before they move on to a rough-cut version of the film. Apocalypse Now's assembly cut leaked for a time and was spread around on videotape. It would be one of the longest Francis Ford Coppola movies of all time, coming in at a behemoth 289 minutes long, and it included material not featured in any other cut of the movie. This draft of Apocalypse Now is probably too unwieldy to be considered a good movie, but it is an interesting watch for those so inclined.
None of Francis Ford Coppola's new movie cuts are short by any means, but they tend to vary in length. The longest version is the film's first assembly, with a runtime of 289 minutes that's full of extremely rough footage. On the other hand, the theatrical cut of Apocalypse Now is the shortest iteration - clocking in at 153 minutes long. It's significantly shorter than its counterparts, even the Final Cut and the Redux version. While the former cut of Apocalypse Now is about 182 minutes long, the latter was 202. As in the case of the definitively better Godfather 3: Coda cut, which trimmed 4 minutes off the original, shorter means better for Apocalypse Now. The theatrical cut is - by far - the best version of this surreal Vietnam War classic. 153554b96e
