Have you voted in my poll? It runs for a week so you have got time, but I hope no one tries to bias it by voting twice. If you do, you will be severely punished- no pictures of Heph/ Alex for a month Laughing

Leonidas and Joanna

I think you need to send a PM to Kevin and/or Lardvaark to get details of the letter and addresses etc. Its worth a try anyway. Lardvaark is 'in charge' of this project, I'm just giving advice Smile

Leonidas, are you named after the posh chocolates that we used to have in Britain? Laughing

Is that the Spartans who fended off a much bigger army than themselves in some valley or something?

I was joking about the chocolates, I think actually Leonidas was some sort of shower gel years ago when I was little Laughing

Hey there

Didn't get a chance to do this before. The two extra names on the message are two gentlemen who got in contact with me when they heard about this project. This is a copy of their email, which they said I could put on here to let you all know how they felt. 11 viewings is pretty impressive stuff. If only I earned more (read="some") money. Mad

Hello,

While not a registered member of the above referenced forum, I am a regular visitor and am quite heartened to see the number of individuals there who are as enthusiastic about and appreciative of Mr. Stone's film as myself and my partner are.

We have paid to see "Alexander" in theaters eleven (11) times to date (by far, a record for both of us), and have been anxiously awaiting the release of the DVD. However, we've become gravely concerned of late as a result of rumors suggesting that the original film will be edited down for DVD, rather than extended with bonus scenes and/or features.

Because we contend that Oliver Stone achieved high art with "Alexander", we are appalled at the idea of it being hacked up to meet the approval of mindless, fundamentalist middle-America. As are so many others on the alexander-the-great.co.uk forum, my partner and I are earnestly hoping for a director's cut that actually adds to the length of the film. To our minds, the rumored editing would be nothing short of a shameful travesty.

We respectfully request that you add our names to your letter to Mr. Stone. Here's hoping that our collective voices will be heard, and that he won't compromise the artistic integrity of his film to appease the bleating sheep of our society.


They're not being anti-American btw - they're from the States.

I can't stay much longer but I hope to spend a bit more time here tomorrow. S'later,
L

Hi Kevin,

I think I may be a bit too late to the party, here (I just saw all this). But we over at the Dreamworks Alexander forum feel like you all do about the DVD (or even cutting any of the film).

If you need any assistance, I could round up the troops to help out. It might be too late, but if you need anything, please let me know.

Thanks,

Dara Smile

CX, these fellas apparently read what we had been saying here and were ready and waiting when the whole message idea was suggested. Yeah, fame at last, eh?

I just realised what you were on about in your last comment about realising what night it was....sadly I was not about to go anywhere good, I had to leg it to my supervisor's to hand in a paper I had proof-read. Glamorous.

Lardvaark - you are getting the fame you rightly deserve, matey.
And heads-up to the couple that emailed you - I agree, as do we all, that this film is High Art - the eagle, the balcony scene, the locations, the palaces, the crimson forest at the end - everything was just.......beautiful (he says wiping a tear away from his eye! - come on, I aint that corny!) but I mean everything I said.
They should join, as BT say - it's good to talk.........

Nice one from the Dreamworks Alexander Forum too - guys - WE ARE BECOMING LEGION
YES!

Birdie Mom- Yay! Thanks for offering that. I'm sure everyone on the side of Alexander will feel the same.

Lardvaark: wow, that is amazing! Hopefully the support for Alexander is GROWING!

Does anyone post on the IMDB Alexander board? I often look at what they're saying on there but can't be bothered to log onto yet another board. I THINK they are mainly pro Al, but I don't know. We could get them on board too [no pun intended there!]

And thanks Kevin, we appreciate your efforts.
