Agora (2009)

Showtime on 8/11/11
I know that in real life, the library at Alexandria burned and therefore the scene doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things, but watching the mob ransack the library is heartbreaking. Other than that, this movie is a typical sword-and-sandals epic without ever quite reaching epic status. Rachel Weisz is wonderful as always, but her presence and the film's location of Roman Egypt make it feel a little bit like a cross between Rome and The Mummy Returns.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars

New Movies in Year Three: 70
