A long but very funny review of the movie Troy.
Menelaus: "Where is she?"
Guard: "Sir, your wife left ... with the Trojans."
One would assume that a $200 million summer blockbuster could have found space on the payroll for some random lackey to comb the script and extricate any errant one-liners that could be potentially misconstrued as silly condom jokes by annoyed, impatient audiences. It calls to mind a quote from the estimable film critic Homer Simpson: "Your movie is more boring than church." I believe neither Homers would approve.
And Penny Arcade shows you how much better the movie would have been with the Hulk.
After all, a Straits Times reviewer gave Lee Ang's Hulk four stars, surely having the Hulk in Troy would push her five stars rating for Troy to six stars, SIX out of Five stars (place evil pinky at edge of evil mouth and laugh buahahahahaha)!!!!! And somemore, both movies starred Eric Bana. Coincidence? I think not!

"While I have yet to succumb to that temptation, I have given five-star ratings, the most recent of which was to Troy. I have been accused of being too liberal with my five stars. The general response tends to be: 'Wah, five stars. You mean the movie is perfect, ah?'"- ST 28th May, Friday
