"Alexander" Sucks

Despite all the terrible reviews, I decided to still go and watch it this weekend...

Terrible, I must say... extremely long and pointless. I was hoping for the new 'Gladiator' (the plot had potential) but I ended up extremely bored in a really long story about Alexander's unusual personality.

A true waste of a potentially great movie. I do not know what Oliver Stone was thinking.

My mom saw it and was greatly dissapointed, not only in the movie itself but the fact that she didn't get to see Colin Farrell's little buddy.

I actually went to see that movie in a theater some 2 years ago. I could have spent my money with something else. I mean it's not so bad but what fuck was going on there?!

Yeah, it's bad. And I'm a Stone fan, so I could tell exactly what he was thinking. It was spelled out during the epilogue.

He wanted to make a movie about a guy who wanted to bring the world together, make borders irrelevant, and have everyone live under one culture in peace and happiness forever, but who failed through a combination of a) his own megolomania, and b) (more so) the disloyalty and shortsightedness of others.

But, yeah ... it's bad.

I thought about starting a thread about how boring and disappointing this film was, but I secretly hoped ignoring it would be more justice. Stone is such an amazing filmmaker and if this film continues to get bad word of mouth, it could hurt his chances at making the next 'big thing'

I'm not wasting my time on a bad movie. Damn, I'd hoped this one would be good.

Rats! I've read Plutarch's bio on Alexander and thought it was interesting (I'm such a geek) so I was looking forward to it, but it sounds like a waste of $$$.
