Rolling Eyes Have loved Alexander for years. Thought the movie was great ... Colin had just the right amount of arrogance to play the role effectively. Rest of the cast was super too ... was very surprised at Val Kilmer as Phillip ... and Angelina Jolie was perfect as Olympias. Can you believe that for his historical consultant fee, Robin Lane Fox only asked to ride in the calvary charges? Amazing!Somebody write me ... would love to discuss more.

Welcome to the forum! We love Alexander too and that's why we daily discuss about history and the movie in this forum. You should join us in the discussions, particularly in our reading group. As you may have seen, we are reading Plutarch's Life of Alexander and commenting its paragraphs. I hope you saty with us and enjoy participating in the forum. Welcome again.

WELCOME to the best forum on Alexander. You came to the right place. After all you are a history teacher. I'm sure you will enjoy yourself as much as we do.

Robin Lane Fox only asked to ride in the cavalry charges ? Well, I wouldn't have asked anything ! Meeting Oliver Stone, all the cast of the movie and being there with them during the filming would be ENOUGH Very Happy for me!

Especially since the opinions of expert historians usually get ignored! I don't know nearly as much about Alexander as does RLF but I would have cleaned the stalls to get to be a consultant on that film!
