PostForum: Discuss 'Alexander' the man   Posted: Thu Aug 09, 2007 3:47 am   Subject: Dreams

The balcony scene was amazing because of the dialogue. I know that a lot of critics complained that it was cheesy, and in some ways it was. However, there was so much detail in those lines about Alexa ...

It's a piece of crap deal, if you think about it. I am still pissed off that songs were not included in that soundtrack. I LOVE that theme you guys are talking about, and I love even more the backgrou ...

I realize that Alexander believed, as much as some of us believe in the modern god...who might one day become myth himself....but I'm not an ancient hellene, so I mention myth, so everyone knows what ...

Apelles,

When I mentioned "a son of Macedonian blood" I didn't think of Alexander IV at all. I thought on the son bred in Macedonia while Alexander was either still a prince, or the first year of h ...

Apelles,

To answer your question...


I have always believed that the main reason Alexander didn't bother to marry and raise a son who would grow to be king, was because of Alexander's careful u ...

He still had Hephaistion's ring with him when Hephaistion died. I'm confused too, because in the end, Ptolemy's ring was meant to be Alexander's ring, but we know that Perdiccas had that - I never hea ...

I have a question about Ptolemy's Alexandria. I read somewhere that the Lighthouse at Alexandria was not built until years later during the reign of his son Ptolemy II so it's a mistake of anachronism ...

Cindoo:

Yes I read once that Perdiccas was given the charge of Roxanne, upon Alexander's death. Some say that when Alexander lay dying he handed Roxanne's hand to Perdiccas.

Although the idea o ...

On Perdiccas...

On the fallen ring scene:
