    Stories don't have to have a conventional beginning, middle and end. The movie us like the slice of a much larger story. But I can understand not being satisfied with it.

    Troy has one of the best sword fights in a movie ever. True story.

    If it had dinosaurs it may have even been an ATG.

    Every movie would be better with Brad Pitt in it.

    I'm all for unconventional; I just didn't like this one, or rather how it was executed.

    Might read the book just to get more of an insight into that bloke's mind. The movie's portrayal of him, due to the time constraints probably, wasn't as deep as I would have liked. I thought he was an interesting character, we just didn't get much of an opportunity to get into the nitty gritty.

    I disagree entirely, you don't want a character like him to be given depth. He is a force of nature. He is death.

    Ok, I'll concede this. He'd improve Star Wars, though that is a sad indictment on both him and that particularly ghastly franchise.

    Star Wars is just..stupid. Can't think of a better word to describe it.
