ATHENS 2004 Olympic Games - Opening Ceremony info
(it's not completely done yet, but I don't bother to see all of the nations walking by..)
I personally think it was a bit boring....
The effects were impressive, but it was a bit impersonal and cold, and it was too little focus on the magnificent Greek history and culture.
The parts that were about it were too "digital" and it looked like they had focused too much on the special effects and forgot about the content..
So I give it a 5 (on a scale from 1 to 10...)
What do you think about the ceremony??

I loved it and I don't think it was too wrong on focusing just on the Greeks because the Olympics are "home" now in Greece. I love the parade of the history starting with the Greeks, they even included other nationalities.
Katie Couric and Bob Costas were providing the voice overs, lol, and they got a bit annoying after awhile. Driving at the usual points - over and over and over again.
But I just adore the cheers that Afghanistan, Iraq and the US got. Plus the Iran team, not really looking happy were they? Also I found it interesting how most Arab nations present had women represented on their teams, a major first, except Saudi Arabia. 21 males.
Don't get me wrong but ... were all the women locked up back home or something? Of course I'm sure the Western world sees this as offensive to women but most of them are quite alright with it.
But I adored it. The song of the opening ceremonies though, I didn't get it but then again Bjork is not my favorite singer.

The whole body falling apart over the water was wierd. The DNA was pretty cool. I was looking for the little pink arrow to piont to the fruitcake gene but it never showed. All the gods and es were a brief histroy lesson and the parade of nations was colorful. That's all I got to say about that.
... the guy with the cube up his ass was funny too.
Whatever was sufficient to get us to this point is insufficient to get us any further.
