How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I saw Gilgamesh tonight - i have wanted to see this every since I saw a episode of Star trek: the next generation based on this story - it is the story of a bad king, half man and half god, who meets a half man/half animal being with his same warrior spirit who causes him to change his ways. They join forces to conquer evil where the half man/half animal being is killed in the battle and then Gilgamesh ventures force to a land where there is the power to bring his friend back to life. Gilgamesh is the oldest known epic - dating back to what is now Iraq - 4000+ years ago and this version shares a lot of traits with Greek Tragedies, including a river Styx, choruses. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukMNfTnI5M8 one of my favorite ST:TNG Episodes
