I wasn't impressed.


It is already a painful experience to see any *sandal movie* (the derogatory term of movies with Greek or Roman time lines over here in Europe) but Petersen's movie was far too long, far too *posy*.

I loved Peter O'Toole and Eric Bana in the movie .... oh and yes Sean Bean. These three gave some outstanding performances
Poor Eric though ... the last Hollywood blockbusters he was in he only played tragic heros (Troy, Black Hawk Down) even though he is one of the most funniest comedians Oz had in a long time. But he does heroic and dramatic very well. I would like to see more of him.

Brad Pitt morphs more and more into a Robert Redford clone IMHO the older he gets (didn't he hit the big Four Zero this year?) And godammit but throughout his scenes I had Madonna's Vogue playing in my head ... Now strike a pose and VOO-OGUE.

OB ... hmm... okay, so he didn't have much lines in LOTR as to show his acting talent (and I grow to suspect that it did us much good), then he was very expressive in POTC where he tried so fiercely to counter-act to JDepp's wonderful Cpt. Sparrow (perhaps someone should have told him that you cannot hold a candle to Johnny when he enjoys acting such a character so much. You just do your best and act normal otherwise you become a comic act and Will Turner sometimes did).
Now in Troy ... oh-uh ... nu-huh ... nice bod but the acting (esp. the OVERacting) and those *expressive* eyebrows and nose wrinkles really REALLY got on my nerves ...oh and that hair ... talking about a bad hair day here ... 1970's here I come :s

Yozora no mukou ni wa mou asu ga matteiru

ano toki kimi ga ushinatta mono wa
yozora no mukou no hoshi ni natta
nurashita hoho wa itsuka kawaite
