TROY!

Troy isn't so much based on The Iliad than it is based on common knowledge about the Trojan War (kind of like O, Brother, Where Art Thou? and The Odyssey): Helen leaving her husband, Menelaus, for Paris, Prince of Troy; Achilles is a hard ass; there's a Trojan Horse, and there's a moment with someone's heel.

My inner Greek Civ/myth geek cringed a bit at the way some things got turned around (the Greek gods make no appearances a la Clash of the Titans) and reinterpreted (such as "Achilles is straight, damn it! Do you hear me, STRAIGHT!"), but more on that later.

The movie wasn't inspiringly good, where I wanted to stand up and say, "Damn, Wolfgang, you done good!" It was entertaining enough and for everyone who came to see the pretteh, it delivered.

gripes, spoilers and the highlights )

Anyway, more info at Bulfinch's Mythology, The Mortal Women of the Trojan War and Pantheon.org.

To the little bitches sitting next to me during the movie: you have no idea how much I wanted to stab you repeatedly in the thigh to stop your inane chatter!

ETA: Corrected info about Andromache and added more links.

The cast of Troy is now at Cannes and there is a whole slew of pictures.

OMG, the sheer hawtness.

[livejournal.com profile] leggyslove has posted some awesome pictures from the Troy premiere.

I'm a little disappointed that Eric Bana didn't keep his 70s pr0n star hair and beard, because that look really suited him.

And dude! Look at how he towers over the BEAN!

I've decided the slash-fest oozing with hot man flesh, also known as the film Troy, needs to be in theaters a lot sooner than May 2004.
And because of Jon's influence, I now realize it's quite plausible that Eric Bana is the odd love child of David Duchovny and Corey Feldman.
Saw The Hulk last week; it was one big "WTF?" moment for me. I didn't understand a damn thing. At least I can't complain about a cop-out ending.
