Quotes

Enobarbus: The barge she sat in, like a burnis'd throne/Burned on the water: the poop was beaten gold./Purple the sais, and so perfumed/ That the winds were lovesick with them./ The oars were silver, which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made/ The water which they beat to follow faster/ As amorous of their strokes.

The power of Christ compels you!!
5 October 2005 | by manchurian_candidate3See all my reviews

This movie altogether made me lose faith in humanity. Most movies are set to stun you with good acting,or at least some acting. This movie, however, was set to painfully vaporize the viewer! It wasn't fast, like a good phaser, but slowly tortures anyone hit by it into nonexistence. This movie would be best described as a steaming pile of horse excrement laced with ebola-zaire. Cleopatra terrified me in this film. Not only was Octavia, the one who was supposed to be plain, more attractive than her, but is also a better actor for the simple reason that I didn't have to listen to her for very long. I have just seriously fallen from my chair thinking about having to watch more of this movie! If I was able to give a negative star rating to this movie, all the stars in the cosmos would not express my hatred for this movie.
