I almost saw Troy on friday, but it was completely sold out. I've heard totally different reviews, has anyone seen it?

|<Carlos E Ferrero> Concerning that "Bad Neighbor" page... there is only one thing worse than a "Bad Neighbor": a person lacking the imagination, initiative, personal resources, energy, independence or whatever, to move away from such a dump!! Anyone who feels it is unavoidable to live in such a place is pathetic wretch!!|
|<3Suns> I saw Troy and I thought it was great. It takes a lot of liberties with Homer, but if it was supposed to be a faithful adaptation they would have called it "The Illiad" instead of "Troy".|
The fight scenes are probably the best combination I've seen of epic battles (ala Braveheart or LotR) and personal duels (ala kung fu flicks).
|<guyPaulo> Troy was a great film in part because there was not a clear "good vs evil" for the battles. Agememnon was a bastard for sure, but it was easy to root for Achilles (Pitt) and Odyssious. This kind of moral reality is a nice touch. Eric Bana has a great performance as Hector, and Pitt is very believable as Achilles. Overall, the film was excellent. |
|<Lauren> Great captioning today, Mort.|
|<Mort> Thanks Lauren, I hope you are doing well today. I guess I will have to see Troy now, although I always prefered the stories of Odysseus's voyage after the war than the actual war itself.|
|<Lauren> Right now there are 48 Mr. Nonames on the board. Welcome and where are you all from? |
|<guyPaulo> Despite the no-names in the users section, the regular monkies have again succeeded in running off practically all non-reg contributors today. In my opinion, the reg monkies' captions are so good that newcomers are too intimidated to post. That, or we're all bullies. |
|<Axolotl> Any monkeys getting invaded by brood X cicadas yet? |
We don't have them here in northern europe...
|<guyPaulo> I haven't spotted any here in the Southern US. I remember them from several years back. We incorrectly called them locusts at the time. The suckers molt and shed their skin, leaving behind a really cool little copy of themselves stuck on a tree truck. |
|<3Suns> The cicadas are a terrorist plot. In arab countries, they're called "Al Si-Qaida".|
|<Kumiho> ::giggles:: no cicades here, but I was up to my eyeballs in them last summer in Korea.|
|<Lauren> I haven't seen any yet, but they are expected in my area, since they WERE here 17 years ago.|
|<Jellyloo> Ok everyone get ready...|
MAKE THE CICADA NOISE!!!
|<Suzy> i havent seen it but i am soon ill come back and tell you guys what happened!!|
