Any one read the Iliad? Do you think that the Movie Troy has given justice to the original epic? Which is better the original text or the movie?

Well for example Achilles's cousin in reality is not hi cousin but his LOVER *laughs* When I told my friends this they were shattered The real Achilles may be a great hero, but he's not so charming: he's not only bisex, but also a pedophile (he rapes and kills one of the little children of Priamus) Brrrr... I loved the movie. Just Brad Pitt and his muscles are worth the price of the tickets *laughs*
