KyleGNewcomer: The roomies are watching Troy.
KyleGNewcomer: That was a one-timer for me.
Gentry WTS: yeah me too... just as "Alexander" will be when it comes out on video
KyleGNewcomer: did you see that one in the theater?
Gentry WTS: it was nominated for the crap movie awards... along with Catwoman
Gentry WTS: never saw it
KyleGNewcomer: me neither.
Gentry WTS: Pitt and Farrell just don't have that epic appeal
Gentry WTS: it has something to do with their body of work and their 'pretty boy'ness
Gentry WTS: now Russell Crow and Mel Gibson.. they did it rather well
Gentry WTS: esp Gibson
KyleGNewcomer: I never thought about that, but you are right.
KyleGNewcomer: They don't have the commanding presence of those other guys.
Gentry WTS: right
Gentry WTS: when Pitt says "immortality, take it, it's yours!" - i want to laugh at him
Gentry WTS: but when Gibson gives his speech in braveheart, i want to go and kick some British arse
Gentry WTS: that is actually a point at which LOTR waned a bit in the third film
Gentry WTS: Aragorn was great until he had to give a big speech to an army
KyleGNewcomer: hmm, I never thought about that.
Gentry WTS: he is great for up close conversations and is quite commanding as a leader of a small group - his voice is perfect for it
KyleGNewcomer: I think you're right though. He was good as the silent ranger, but not majestic enough to be a king.
Gentry WTS: exactly
Gentry WTS: His voice is too high pitched or something to accommodate the speech outside Mordor
Gentry WTS: The words are perfect, but he's just not convincing me
Gentry WTS: perhaps i'll have to blog on this later
KyleGNewcomer: you should definitely do so. It would piss off all the LOTR nerds.
KyleGNewcomer: They're one of my favorite groups to pick on.
Gentry WTS: heheh
