Is it watchable for someone that only got half way through the Sopranos? Or would parts go over my head?

 

You could watch it, but half of the point is seeing what the early days of the characters were all about. If you don't know/care about those characters, I'm not sure it'd be worth it.

I think you'd be fine with this. The main character that it focuses on (Dickie Moltisanti, Christopher's dad) is dead long before the timeline of The Sopranos even gets started. 

 

Tony is a peripheral figure in this thing. 

 

It's not really a "prequel", it's more "a Sopranos story" which I think they billed it as, and which makes more sense.

It’s a crock of shit. If this weren’t Sopranos related it would be getting pelters. It offer nothing to the original series other than a chance to re-use a few lines/scenes/characters. As a stand-alone film it’s very poor.

Public service announcement 

 

The best version of the best film ever made is on BBC1 tonight at 12:15

Apocalypse Now. The Final Cut

 

 

 

Call me crazy but I think the original cinema releases for both Apocalypse Now and Blade Runner are the best versions.

Yes they may not of been the "full" realisation of the director's vision but they were the actual releases that changed the way we looked at cinema. The effect they had on cinema from that moment on is huge and the later released director's cuts never had that effect and influence.

If you haven't seen Heart of Darkness then make sure you do as soon as you can - the fact that Apocalypse Now was even made is just a feat in itself.

I would have agreed with you, seeing the original at the cinema as a teenager was an absolute stunning for me. I still remember it vividly, I've never had a cinematic experience like it.

 

I've watched the original dozens of times since

I thought Redux was horribly disappointing, the whole rhythm of the original was gone.

 

I saw the final cut  a couple of years ago, again at the cinema, the first time I had seen any version at the cinema in a couple of decades. Going in I was worried that it wouldn't live up to the original at it would be a disappointment but it was a genuine masterpiece

I’m not kidding either- she was frantic in November that she wouldn’t be able to get any in due to shortages. :lol:
