    Alexander? Forget about it. Rottentomatoes.com gives it 13% at this time, and I'm saying that is generous. What a disappointment, and that from Oliver Stone! :(

    i have the same bad feeling that i have about king Arthur, i haven't seen either of them - just the trailers - but they make me very nervous - i was really looking forward to them as well.


    just have to wait and see.

    Although I’m not a fan ot Alexander ar the actor who plays him it will be a shame if the film is a turkey as I’m led to believe this could be the end of such blockbusters.

    Bad, very bad, script. The movie choreography is bad. The battle scenes are confusing. And, they portrayed Alexander as this emotional guy that just so happened to have conquered the world by accident. This is a bad movie. A very bad movie.

    Isn't he meant to be bi-sexual as well, Alexandra that is not Oliver Stone.

    I thought that ancient Greek nobles were obliged to take both a wife and a husband?

    Must admit, despite liking most of Stone's work, I have major bad feelings about this one, mainly due to the fact that Farrell in the title role, to me screams "miscast"...

    It lacks the necessary qualities that make a film 'not-bad'. ;)

    Seriously, people. Don't assume a film is good unless you've heard otherwise. That makes it so much easier for Hollywood to just dump awful films on us. Don't ask "why not" to see a film, ask "why". Assume a movie is crap unless you've heard something good about it. Stop renting new releases because they have a pretty cover. < New != Good >

    Fight the power of bad cinema! :lease:
