Delusions of Grandeur

Tonight, I went to see Troy, and what an utter disappointment it was! Mind you, my expectations were not high, but what with all the rather benevolent reviews from authorities in the field, I wouldn't have expected that it could fail on such grand a scale. It is not worth going into detail, suffice it to say that in the movie, the ten years of the siege feel like no more than three weeks. Something must be wrong there. I am not sure whether this is a consolation to the director, but let's say that the failure is proportionate to the suject matter of the movie.

Hollywood, let's go back to Spiderman & Co.! As for us, let's read a book again every now and then...
