Twas a busy day and night for me. I watched the Indians beat the D-Rays 10-0 in the afternoon, and got burnt to a lobster crisp. Then tonight I saw Troy. I'd give it a solid 7. Would ask for it as a gift because I might want to watch it again some day. It didn't seem like a 2 hour and 42 minute movie. It moved with a pretty good pace the whole time. The acting by some (Orlando Bloom) wasn't anything to write home about, but it was interesting enough and certainly filled with action. It seems the epic battles put it in the vein of Gladiator, Braveheart, and Lord of the Rings, but I don't think the battles were as good as those in Braveheart of Lord of the Rings.

And last of all, don't forget about Diane Kruger (she played Helen). She is a potential top 10 nominee. She bears striking resemblence to a girl I work with, which is a big plus (and maybe is what leads to the nomination.) I can't really find a good still photo of her, but trust me when I say she looks better in motion anyway. This is the best one I suppose, but it's a bit small.
