After reading The Venetian Betrayal by Steve Berry, I wanted to watch Troy again. I never read The Iliad. I was actually confused what the Iliad was about. My mother refreshed my memory with it. Since Troy is based on the Illiad, I decided to watch it while Chris was here. It has Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, and Diane Kruger in it. Big Warning: there is lots of violence (of course since it's about a war) and one sad part. Troy is about the war between the Greeks and Troy. It actually started because Paris was in love with Helen who was married to a king. Paris decides to kidnap Helen and make her Helen of Troy. The king not only wants Helen back but also have Troy for himself.

I have seen Troy and remember the basic premise but the movie made no impression on me.

@JohnRoberts yeah me neither. I guess that's why I couldn't remember some of it.

The movie wasn't anything like the book. The other book written by homer, "The Odyssey" for me was a more enjoyable read compare to the Iliad
