Hey

I actually managed to post last night before introducing myself. Please forgive.

I first saw the film last weekend and thought it was bloody amazing. Then went to do my bit for the box office takings again last night. And thought it was bloody amazing.

It's nice to be able to join in the discussions finally (bit frustrating with the late release of it over here). My main aim at the moment is tracking down a method of getting a bit more publicity for the positive reaction, as my last (other!) post shows. I feel so sorry for all of 'em....

Hey Lardvaark!
Love the name and the positive energy! You know what? You're right; I was one of those who criticized, but it was constructive (I really thought some things should have been depicted more extensively, like some battles and his long and passionate rivalry with DariusIII) Still, I'm all for the love-alexander campaign; count me in.
Ciao

Cheers for the welcome.

Just so you don't think I've joined then immediately lost interest, I'm heading off for a bit: I've just learned that I've lost my second grandparent (and third member of my family) in three weeks (luck sucks), and am being dragged away from my office.

Hope the community is still thriving on my return!

PS Nice to see you're not bothered by my being from Soton, CM!

Aah, you lot are great.
I've only just seen the latest posts, and the kind words are appreciated.
I'm out of town for three days (going where no-one can hear me scream) for my Nan's funeral. So until Tuesday, take care and behave yourselves Wink .

Have a good weekend all!

Nice to find likeminded people who have enjoyed or are about to enjoy the movie. I am based in Ireland the home of the wonderful Mr Farrell, the irrisistable Jonathan Rhys Meyrs and so many other actors in the movie including my son.
