    It’s good to hear that Petersen had a “better” version of Troy ready to go — I found the theatrical version unimpressively average. Stagy, boring, too derivative of other average epics depicting ancient times.

    I usually always appreciate Brad Pitt’s performances, but this one was just dull. Poor casting. And speaking of poor casting, Orlando Bloom… again.

    I watched the film last night. I agree with you……..almost. You should have made more mention of the score in the directors cut. The re-use of Horner’s original score for the film……hmm let me clarify. The theatrical cut had one whole score. Different songs. This cut, re-uses the same 3 songs 8 different times. That’s all we get. It sounds terrible. Not just from a score lovers point of view either. It’s awkward. The music is happy and celebrating when a main character is killed – It…….ruins the film for me.

    Chad, I must confess I’m not much of a score-lover. I usually only notice if it’s extraordinary, or I’ve been warned about it. I’m sure my next viewing won’t be as enjoyable now that you’ve highlighted this apparent disaster with the score. It’s too bad about the score, because otherwise everything has been improved over the theatrical cut.
