So it's about one-thirty in the morning. I just got back from seeing Troy. I posted the new comic, and there was no way in hell I could not come here and post a little something about this movie.
It was awesome. I loved it. It was, however, not very accurate to the book, but honestly, what movies are? They took liberties to make for a better cinematic experience (as always happens) and you know what? I don't fucking care. The movie was still very fun.
Brad Pitt and Eric Bana were incredible. The first fight Achilles had at the beginning had me giddy. If you've seen the movie, you know exactly what I'm talking about. If you haven't seen the movie yet, prepare yourself for giddiness.
It's been quite a while since my English Literature or World Civ classes, but I remembered enough about the books to notice a couple of the errors. I urge you not to let that ruin the movie for you. I know, I know. There are some of you out there that love to sit on a stick and complain about innacuracies to the book, and how the web should shoot from cartridges, etc etc. Go see Troy. It's fun. At the very least, there are some very cool fight scenes.
I'm working overtime on collection book stuff. The closer I get to having it finished, the more rabid I become about it, and the more I want it. Yesterday I pulled a straight fourteen hour day working on it. Still got a lot of work to go, but I'm that much closer.

Van Helsing, however, can suck my ass. That movie was laughable.
