The Ladies Lead Pompeii

Browning as Cassia and Moss as Aurelia
Yes, I watched Pompeii finally.  When I first saw the trailer, I immediately sent it to my friend.  We both instantly knew we wanted to watch it but also make fun of it.  When we tried to watch it with others, we couldn't get past the first five minutes.  I got past those first five minutes a few weeks later, and I'm glad I did.  I enjoyed the movie.  It wasn't great, or even good; but it provided strong female characters.  Really, the women are the stars of the show, as the men are lackluster.
