King Arthur

This is a really good movie. I was surprised because I had heard some bad things about it. But it had great action and moral heroes and a Queen who kicked a**. What more could you want from a movie?
Much better than alot of adaptations of the Legend. Too bad the people who did Mists of Avalon didn't do it like this.
Also showed the negative aspects of Christianity and rightly so.

Your's is the first good review I heard of the movie!

So they made Gwen a go for heck warrior instead of a whiny fundamentalist hypocrite cheerleader like in the Mists of Avalon?

Interesting!

Saw it this afternoon and really enjoyed it. It was pretty bloody in spots but not as bloody as Lord of the Rings.

Definitely worth the money!

My DH is a big Arthurian history buff and is not going to see it. Once he saw the trailer with Gwen in a leather bra while all the rest are in full armour, well--it was just too revisionist and gratuitous flesh for him.

i hate the way Hollywood has to revise historic events so they are "politically correct" for today's stupid audiences who don't even know their history.

oh well.

fluffylemur.

I couldn't agree more.

Besides, it's not Christianity that has negative aspects. it's the people who profess to be something they truly are not ...and today, it's hard to find a movie (or a reviewer) who knows the difference.

We keep trying to put 21st century "morals" into "historical" movies, and it just doesn't work.

All I'm gonna say.

Okay, I agree about the costume. I don't think any self-respecting warrior male or female would wear anything like that, it was winter for cryin' out loud.
Still it was fun to watch. Didn't mean to offend anyone by the post.

Pardon me, but what standards make leather string bikini costumes "politically correct?!"

They certainly aren't by any feminist standard I know!

This is one more Arthurian take that I just don't want to see.

I think they confused Gwen with Boadicea ( also spelled Boudicca or Boudica) (note: do you know how hard it is to find that name if you don't know how to spell it!!!!!)


but I bet even our dear Queen B *IF* she wore a leather breastplate ALSO wore a shift under it or over it!!! Any woman who is prepared to go into battle would know how to dress for it.

Hollywood really ticks me off sometimes.

Just Hollywood?

It always confused me and ticked me off when I was a little girl that the super heros wore tights, and the super heroines wore shorts and miniskirts. Didn't they want to prevent their legs from getting scatched up?

Oh, Boudicca (and there are those who say the d-word comes from her name)! That was a woman who gave the Romans a run for their money until she fell! The statute of her in London certainly doesn't portray her as some object of male fantasy.

By the way, the folks at the Mythology forum on the NYTimes think the movie is gad awful (don't know what they're saying at the movie forum).

Most "historical" movies aren't very. Besides how many times does something historical happen and all the major players ( and most of the minor ones) are extremely good looking?
This one was just fun, fluff.

Rita Mae also said something in a book about a character being critisized for painting her fingernails. She said any movement that based itself on what you wear was a bit well I forget how she put it but the idea was you don't base who or what you are on what you wear.
