10 years of Flick Filosopher: celebrating beefcake

I’m stunned that so many of my critical colleagues approached Troy like it was supposed to be, I dunno, Gone With the Wind. Cuz, you know, it’s not. From my review:

Swords being swung around by handsome men in sandals and skirts and little else would have been all I needed to get me into the theater — man, there’s lots of nipples in this flick, and not a one of them is female that I can recall, though I was otherwise distracted. Director Wolfgang Petersen has clearly heard the cry throughout the land for more male nudity in Hollywood films, cuz there’s about as much here as there could be in an R-rated film. Who says women don’t wanna see naked men onscreen? I decree that Eric Bana and Brad Pitt get oiled up and wrestle each other in every Hollywood film from now on.
