Thread: Troy

    Thumbs up Troy

    Great story! Looks to be a great flick.
    I noticed that no one had started a thread yet, and since I'll be seeing it tonight I thought I'd go on ahead and do just that.
    With such a great cast - Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, Orlando Bloom, Rose Byrne, Bryan Cox, Peter O'Toole, Brendan Gleeson, Sean Bean - could they really go wrong?

    I heard it is really bad.

    Re: Troy

    I never was really thrilled with Pitt but that changed after I saw Ocean's Eleven. I think this story can make for a great picture so I'm hoping they can pull it off. Are there any early reviews of this movie out yet?

    I plan on seeing it tonight as well. This should be a better moive for Bana than the Hulk was. I also was not a big fan of Pitt until Oceans 11 and Fight Club, so now I will go with different expectations. After the disaster that was Van Helsing, I'm looking forward to this "Big" movie.

    Re: Troy

    I read somewhere that they changed part of the history for the film, so if anybody figures out what was changed please relay it for i'm very curious.

    I dunno about this one though. I might catch it this weekend, but we'll see.

    Wolfgang's been disappointing with his past few films.

    I dont' see this taking over my favorite Wolfgang film, Das Boot, but it looks to be good.

    I have heard that they tried to pack too much of the war backstory into this film, trying to tell an entire decade's tale in under 4 hours (even the Iliad didn't try to tell the whole story), while also making it character-driven so you end up with no really singular area or person to hang the film on for very long before it changes gears and pushes characters out of the picture for long periods of time. I personally don't feel any compulsion to see this film at all, and that's exacerbated by the fact that I'm distrustful of Warner Brothers more than ever lately.
