...Ow. - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
And in the "...I agree, I should have listened" department, Troy DOES stink-on-ice; god bless Netflix for being cheap enough that one doesn't have to feel particularly obligated to stick with the occasional true stinker. (For the record, I only made it to the "Saving Private Achilles" beach-landing scene before deciding to bail; Mum had already fallen asleep a good ten minutes before that.)

Had better luck with Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, which except for Depp's "love-child of Michael Jackson & Church Lady" performance was a surprisingly good adaptation of the source material, if one ignores the attempt at giving Wonka a backstory. C'mon, Tim, it's Roald Dahl, you should have found that sufficiently freaky all by itself not to need to tinker with it...

The only reason to watch Troy is to see muscley oiled guys in skirts... I have to say, my favorite part of the movie was watching Eric Bana (Hector) arming for his battle with Brad Pitt.

We didn't make it that far in. :)

Fast forward is your friend! Watching Troy for the plot is useless. Troy's best feature is many different flavors of men, in cute costumes.
