About Nemo

Nemo is the typical movie buff. Well, he hates popcorn though! He watches every kind of movies, in languages he can understand, some he cant. His tastes in movies can only be matched by his diversity. He flows with the film. Get scared in horror ones, tear up in tragedies, and laugh his ass off in comedies. He can give you killer reviews and he doesn't miss many, so you are in for a treat! By Dory

About Dory

Dory is a lazy movie buff. She loves popcorn more than the movie in screen. She watches very less movies but you can bank that the movies she watches are indeed classics. Highly inspired by films at times. The movie she will watch will be her theme of life for rest few days.So people watch out for some rare but classic reviews by her.It will surely be a treat to read.

Troy (2004)


Imdb link:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0332452/

Genre:Action,History,Romance.

Cast:Julian Glover,Brian Cox,Brad Pitt,Eric Bana,Diane Kruger and Orlando Bloom.

Review:The movie tag line is For Honor and indeed this film is a honor to Hollywood.Director Wolfgang Petersen writes history in silver screen.A treat to watch Troy is set on an adaptation of Homer's great epic, the film follows the assault on Troy by the united Greek forces and chronicles the fates of the men involved.It is the year 1250 B.C and it shows love story of Trojan prince (bloom) and Helen (Diane) and what follows next.Troy is a story of pride and honor for fighting for something you love more than yourself.Apart from the story we all know few actors stood their ground in this movie,the famous Achilles (pitt),Hector (Eric Bana) and Andromache (Saffron Burrows) are naming a few.

Screenwriter David Benioff changed up the story to help it reach out to more people,but frankly that didn't mattered at all.The action scenes with Pitt are amazingly filmed and choreographed. All the other actors play their parts well also, with Bloom proving that he can play a weak character after playing so many strong ones.Troy is an entertaining summer flick.If you have not watched it rent a DVD soon or better BUY IT!


Rating:4/5 *The movie is spectacular*

    Good review! :)

    I watched Troy & liked it.
    Strange enough, though I think I have a flair for movies only belong to romantic & comic genre... end of the day, I like quite a few war films too!

    Only I wish I could watch it on big screen!
