Oh I don't know. Colin Farrell has twice delivered the goods, acting wise for me. Two scenes stand out. One from Alexander and one from Phone Booth. The first is when he is surrounded by his army and there is dissent building. The emotion he feels resulting from what he sees as a betrayal is brilliantly acted. The second is his public confession scene in Phone Booth towards the end when he's talking to his wife on the phone. Despite the obnoxious character he was playing, Farrell really made you believe that he was truly sorry for being a s**t to his wife in what was surely a difficult scene to act out in such a public setting.

So yes, in Alexander he does, at times, whine and is not the most stoic of leaders but there's still good work going on in this film. It deserves a recut and, given a few more years, a reappraisal.

Include me in that too. I actually enjoyed Alexander also. There was nothing bad about it.

Yes, Mrs Doubtfire.....An awesome movie, anyone would be lying if they said they didn't like it, that, or you'd be 1 of 10 who truly didn't.
Erm...Mrs. Doubtfire?
I don't know why, but I can honestly say I enjoyed this movie, and since I only rented it (Director's Cut), I will definately buy this upcoming version. The ticket for '300' (if its true) will be useful too.
in this set there is a "300" movie ticket !!!!
Wow, that's annoying.....

Alexander get's 3 DVD releases in 1 year and I've yet to see a Mrs. Doubtfire SE, that's bullsh*t.
Looks like I'll have to buy this then. I'd look pretty stupid with just the theatrical and directors cuts wouldn't I?Happy
