Alexander (not so) Great

Oliver Stone sucks. It’s a fact made abundantly clear every time he opens his mouth, especially after his visit with his commie buddy Fidel. So I’m not surprised that he took liberties with the story of Alexander The Great. As we all know by now, every damn movie nowadays has to sneak in a gay reference or character to make the homosexually dominant liberal Hollywood cult respect it. Totally out of proportion to reality. I therefore fully expected Stone to focus on this rumor about Alexander, even though all our sources about the life of Alexander were written many centuries after the fact. I guess there’s not enough story there. After all, the dude only conquered 90% of the then known world. Stone and Hollywood have to play up the questionable bisexual thing.

Why did Stone, of all Directors, have to be the one to get his grubby hands on this? It could’ve been a great movie about one of the most powerful personalities the world has ever known. Now, it’s going to be boiled down to “was he bi or not?”.

Wasn’t Ridley Scott available?

My Greek brethren are up in arms over this and are actually threatening legal action (thanks to Liam for the link). They want him to put in a disclaimer that the movie is a work of fiction. I love this line …

Varnakos said as Stone has the right to freely express himself, the audience should have the right to know.

“We cannot come out and say that (former U.S.) President John F. Kennedy was a shooting guard for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team and so Warner cannot come out and say Alexander was gay,” Varnakos said.

And The Athens News Agency said no scenes were allowed to be shot in Greece because of government opposition to Stone’s portrayal of the Greek hero.

Stone actually included the vulgar line “Alexander was defeated only once — by Hephaestion’s thighs.” Hephaestion, by the way, is played by Jared Leto wearing eyeliner. The whole thing is kind of funny actually. The movie sounds like a total Rotten Tomato.

(That reminds me: There’s a creepy lookin dude, Shepard Smith I think, on Fox News Channel that I can swear wears eyeliner. Does this bother anybody else besides me?)
