For Troy, Brad Pitt was asked to play Achilles, the greatest warrior in history, a man whose feats of arms were so incredible that people said he must be a demi-god, half immortal, a man who could conquer any nation in the world with the strength of his sword.

Brad Pitt chose to costume himself for the role with a set of cheap blond highlights and a leather miniskirt, thus becoming the first man in dramatic history to play Achilles as a three-dollar whore. Good call, Brad.

Yes, and he looked so fantastically Greek, didn't he?

I saw the previews, heard the flat inflection in his voice, and the first thing that came to mind was "historically accurate."

Oh, no, wait. The first thing that came to mind was "steaming pile of Hollywood bullshit." My bad.
