I heard they're releasing a version of The Thin Red Line which is watchable. I.e. all the boring poetry, lingering shots of sky and Penn/Travolta/Nolte dialogue is cut out, leaving the action scenes and hilarious bits (e.g. when the guy gets the 'Dear John' letter and when James Caviezel gets killed at the end). It's 17 minutes long and actually watchable. I understand they're doing the same with First Knight. They're almost completely cutting out Julia Ormoind's part (cast on the basis of her role in Legends of the Fall where she just blubbed the whole time until she put herself out of our misery and blew her brains out). Also they're altering the location of Prince Malagant's home to something much more realistic than a slate mine. A nice, comfy house. Lastly they're cutting out all the Dialogue except the stuff either side of the battles and Sean Connery's character lives and ties Richard Gere to the boat and sets it alight. Much to the delight of everyone. Except Julia Ormond who blubs until she throws herself off a cliff. Much to the delight of everyone.
