I liked how it showed a double standard in society. Woman had to be chaste while men could sleep with whoever they wanted. The palace scene was nice and interesting, I liked how Odysseus took his revenge on the suiters.

I watched a movie based on the Odyssey and they butchered the story and Odysseus. They made him into an arrogant idiot who took delight in flipping off the gods.

As Odin says in the Hovamal:
"Praise no day 'til evening; no wife 'til on her pyre; no sword 'til tested;
no maid 'til bedded; no ice 'til crossed;
no ale 'til drunk."
