Naming yourself "The Gay Blade" apparently wasn't enough to break ground years ago so now we need Oliver Stone and Colin Farrell to do it for us!
"Breaking Ground With a Gay Movie Hero"
Even before I read this article, I have been intrigued by Alexander. Yes, Oliver Stone has made many bad movies. But, even his bad ones are interesting in a train wreck kind of way. But now I can't wait to see this film, preferably at Court St., with a sold out crowd of unsuspecting homophobes freaking out. Oh man, it is going to be classic!
The effete film critic and conservative talk show host Michael Medved predicts the mayhem that is heading to a theater near you!
"There's a certain audience out there that just loves war movies, battle movies - 'Braveheart,' 'Saving Private Ryan,' 'We Were Soldiers,' " he observed. "There are probably a bunch of people who will go to see 'Alexander' looking for a he-man, a superwarrior. When they find out he's playing for the other team, that will probably create a certain indignation in some of the audience."
A he-man, indeed!
But what if some impressionable young boys bear witness to such depraved and gloriously sinful debauchery?
"There will be people who see Alexander the Great's bisexuality as applauding that lifestyle, and unfortunately it will lead some young boys, young men down a path that I think they'll regret someday," said Bob Waliszewski, a film critic with Focus on the Family, a Christian group.
