Throwback Movie: Troy (2004)

I’ll never forget how Paris horniness doomed his city.

Or, how brave Hector was defending his honor until his last breath.

Or, how Brad Pitt’s Achilles was a constant torn in King Agamemnon’s flesh.

Or, how Menelaus stupidly died defending his bruised ego.

Or, how Hector’s cousin, Briseis, had a chance to end Achilles’s life and, in turn, the war, but couldn’t resist the urge to jam his genital instead.

Or, how Diane Krueger’s beauty as Helen of Troy didn’t measure up to Paris’. If the switch was flipped, believe me when I say Orlando Bloom would still be finer.

But the biggest thing I’ll never forget, even though so many years has passed, is how dumb the people of Troy were and how they thought it wise to drag in a mysterious giant statue into their city, while at war. Dumb folks with a dumber King!

That’s quite the rant.

Your turn.

What’s your favorite memory from the movie Troy?

Once Upon A Time: Tarantino’s Love Song To Hollywood

Release Date: July 25

Starring: Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCarprio, Margot Robbie, Dakota Fanning, et al.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood unlocks a new side of Quentin Tarantino; one not harkened to revenge or a thirst for vengeance. This is a side of the filmmaker that still very much details his mastery of the art, while still scoring a formidable love song for the industry that made him a household name in the first place; call it a fictional retelling of some of the truths of the late ’60s in Tinsel town.

It took so long for me to watch OUATIH because I feared it’d be a bore. I’m happy to announce my fears were unfounded. Although there’s no blood and substantial gore, Tarantino –through a mixture of real and reel— tells a series of standalone stories in one movie only to have them climax in one uniquely absurd way.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood isn’t plot driven, its characters are very real. The realest of any Tarantino movie. Simple people doing basic things, driven by their thoughts and emotions, whether good or bad.

OUATIH boasts of an ensemble cast and plays with the truth in a very artistic way, typical Tarantino style. I kinda like how the movie went, though; it is enjoyable, even if it doesn’t explode like most people would’ve been expecting it to.

PS: Brad Pitt looks pretty good for his age, I think it’s about time he tells us what his secret is, don you agree?
