You can’t make this stuff up. This is one of my favorite movie stories. Troy is a movie I regret seeing myself to a certain degree in that it was so bad. But it wasn’t bad enough to be entirely beyond redemption. Rather, it was that perfect kind of bad that just opens it to heckling while you’re with a bunch of friends at a party. I would laugh and chuckle here and there because some of the dialogue is just ridiculous, especially when said by Orlando Bloom.

But nothing, NOTHING will top the audience reaction for when the Trojans come out of the Trojan horse. No joke, at least a few people around me made audible reactions of surprise when they saw this. And I thought I grew up in a hole.
