Alexander Revisited: The Final Cut
The rumours of a new 3+ hours of "Alexander" is actually true!

Warner Bros. has set a date for Feb. 27th for this one. No extras has been mentioned yet.

Looks like I'll have to buy this then. I'd look pretty stupid with just the theatrical and directors cuts wouldn't I?Happy

Alexander get's 3 DVD releases in 1 year and I've yet to see a Mrs. Doubtfire SE, that's bullsh*t.

I don't know why, but I can honestly say I enjoyed this movie, and since I only rented it (Director's Cut), I will definately buy this upcoming version. The ticket for '300' (if its true) will be useful too.

Yes, Mrs Doubtfire.....An awesome movie, anyone would be lying if they said they didn't like it, that, or you'd be 1 of 10 who truly didn't.

Include me in that too. I actually enjoyed Alexander also. There was nothing bad about it.

I hate bringing up historical inaccurcies in films (because I sound like a douche) but the version Stone released missed major incidences in Alexander's life. Colin Farrells' acting turned one of the greatest generals into a whiney child. But hopfully the added time will fill out the character, and make it a better movie.

Oh I don't know. Colin Farrell has twice delivered the goods, acting wise for me. Two scenes stand out. One from Alexander and one from Phone Booth. The first is when he is surrounded by his army and there is dissent building. The emotion he feels resulting from what he sees as a betrayal is brilliantly acted. The second is his public confession scene in Phone Booth towards the end when he's talking to his wife on the phone. Despite the obnoxious character he was playing, Farrell really made you believe that he was truly sorry for being a s**t to his wife in what was surely a difficult scene to act out in such a public setting.

So yes, in Alexander he does, at times, whine and is not the most stoic of leaders but there's still good work going on in this film. It deserves a recut and, given a few more years, a reappraisal.
