Troy - Reprise
Ok - so this is slightly cheating as it's not over yet - but I'm a fair way through Troy and I'm quite enjoying it.

At the cinema I think I thought it was good, but flawed (can't be bothered to pretend consistency by rereading old journals) however I have discovered a way of enjoying the good bits (some of the fights, Brad Pitt, some more of the fights) without the bad bits (the rest...).

"Do the washing up and cook tea while it's going on".

This, patented technique allows you to spend time productively on Real Life TM while getting the best out of the film.

Oh, and I'd just like to make it clear I'm not obsessing again about men in short skirts and crop tops. See how I've not even made a single mention of the word cousin.

There should be a fan edit, with just the good bits.

Come to that, they should do the same with The Phantom Menace. Pod Race, Jedi Duel. Pod Race, Jedi Duel.

Would that really be a fan edit, or just an "old fan" edit? IIRC the intended audience like the whole thing, Jar Jar included...

"TRUE fan" edit! These preschooler johnny-come-latelies do not count.

Having recently watched the original trilogy in all its splendid restored glory, and even though I still prefer them, I can see why the more modern trilogy appeals to today's audience (apart from Jar Jar, I can't find any redeeming excuses for him). My 10 year old daughter finds "our" trilogy boring but can't wait for Revenge of the Sith. Mind you, neither can I! Glutton for punishment, me. :)

It exists....

There's an 'old fan' edit knocking around called "The Phantom Edit".

Or at least, there was if slashdot is to be believed.
