PostForum: Discuss 'Alexander' the Movie - Pre-Release   Posted: Mon Apr 12, 2004 7:37 pm   Subject: A serious reply
Well if anybody is interested in a serious reply to Über Makedonische's, here's my guess: if you notice on this website's bibliography, nowhere do they mention Mary Renault's famous trilogy - "Fire ...

PostForum: Say Hello   Posted: Mon Apr 12, 2004 6:59 pm   Subject: more about Hephaestion
Callie,

There are a bunch of factoids in Mary Renault's "The Nature of Alexander" that are not in the trilogy that I found interesting. Pertaining specifically to Hephaestion, I was surprised to f ...

I hope you don't start stalking her, lol.

She does look pretty good as Olympias though Razz

Be careful, she might cast a spell she learned in Epiros on you! Wink

Not only is Aristotle not in the movie, but for Stone to say that Alexander only founded two cities is also rather flawed. After reading Mary Renault's books, I discovered he founded several cities - ...

Yo doll face! Rumors? What rumors? We're getting close. Let's get through Harry Potters third movie first. There's been so little out there in cyberspace about Oliver's "Alexander" I don't know w ...

Hi again,

I've been aloof at keeping up with the conversations, but I'm back. I'm so happy to hear that the general consensus is for Oliver Stone to hopefully use some (if not most) of the scenes ...

I thought I read somewhere on this site that filming started in Sept 2003. That's about right for any epic film - about a year in the making. Hell, Peter Jackson did all three of the "Lord of the R ...

Well, just for the record, Val Kilmer (slated for Philip) played Jim Morrison and did quite well. Maybe it ought to be Val playing Alexander!

Yes Kevin, he is a good actor, but I have to agree with dynamo about him being a most unlikely Ptolemy I.

Like Larry, I enjoyed his performance immensely in "the Lion in Winter" as well as Picass ...

Hi Sue,

I haven't read "The Charioteer" yet; however, Mahesh (my partner) has "The Mask of Apollo" which I'm more than likely going to read after I read "The Nature of Alexander."
