Imagine that was your job on the film? You know that had a guy fully dedicated to it. They were like "Wilson, you make sure his facial features are real and lifelike; Johnson, you make sure it dangles."

Every bad review I've seen for this movie has slammed it for trying to be too faithful to the book and therefore lacking originality. That's a bunch of BS because if he would have taken liberties they'd be saying the opposite. I had low expectations going in because I didn't like 300 and I saw the bad reviews but I thought it was very well done.

Man, I went to Itally, and all I saw was a bunch of painted and marbled nudity... what a sham. Hope everyone only watches girl on girl porn around here. Otherwise, there is a LOT of German Helmet there too. Sometimes, it comes with the territory. Got to take the bad with the good sometimes. Should they have portrayed him as a Ken Doll? You can avert your eyes you know ... And anyway, not a fan of the schlong, but christ, if that's the complaint. I know this and my posts are tongue in cheek, but if that bothers you as oppossed to dismemberment etc., then priorities are misplaced. Other

The only thing I might have changed was the soundtrack. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't but when it didn't, it felt really out of place.

The soundtrack itself was awesome. Jam packed full of great songs. I do agree, though, that at least twice I thought the songs were misplaced. The two times slip my mind at the moment, but I definitely remember that. Insert blue penis joke here.

100% agree. Hated the use of Sounds of Silence especially.
