No solid date as far as I know yet Drew. However, Warner tend to announce things pretty late so a 22nd March date could be right. I imagine we'll hear something soon in any case...

Yeah, I'm really hoping its not as bad as so many people have said. I only know one person who has seen it and he thought it was okay and not terrible. We'll see.

It was terrible, through and through. The story structure was all over the place when it didnt need to be. The acting (or lack there of)was pretty aweful. Colin Farrell was totally miscast and was unbelievable. The battles were nothing more then what you see in the trailers, and all of Alexander the Great's biggest battles arent even shown, theyre just mentioned. The score was terrible. The relationship between Alexander and his gay lover was creepy, and i don't mean that in a homophobic way, I mean that in a exorcist kind of way, it was just CREEPY. The CGI and effects were just as bad as Troy. I could go on. And this is coming from an Oliver Stone fan...its really bad.

But on the plus, you get to see total Rosario Dawson Nudity Very Happy

But that's probably worth a rental, right?

Yeah, i'd say she is worth a $5 rental Wink

It might actually be interesting for you to watch now that you know how bad it is. You may even think the awefulness is overhyped because you know what to expect and the impact wont be as hard.
