King Arthur

I’ve loved this film ever since I saw it at the cinema.  I think it’s totally underrated and very enjoyable.

If you’re interested in the legend of King Arthur, or you simply would like to see a new take on it, this is definitely for you.   Plus if you like men charging around with swords and blood and guts of course.  I like a little Gawain myself…

Oh, and no I don’t believe this is the true story.  It’s just another story like this one.  Which I also like.

  1. I’ll be renting it – thanks for the recommendation!

  2. I have been fascinated by King Arthur. This was on my maybe rent list, thanks for the recommedation. Fun to want to believe he is real, Arthur was just too perfect to be real though.

  3. I couldn’t agree more. I saw it in the theatre on opening day and very much enjoyed it. I thought it was well done and is so underrated.

    I also enjoyed Excalibur back in the day.

  4. FYI, the movie is loosely based on a mix between the legends and what some historians believe is the true story (that Arthur was actually the leader of a unit of Roman soldiers). The story is not much like the legends in Mallory’s “La Morte de Arthur”, which is why I was disappointed… I was hoping to see something similar to the original legend.

    That’s not to say that it’s not a well-made film… but I was hoping they’d pick either “legend” or “history” instead of trying to base the movie on both.

  5. Hope you enjoy it Melissa and Kathy. I think it’s well worth a watch.

    You have excellent taste Vixen! They tried too hard I think Shan, and made it a little mixed, neither one thing or the other. But if you forget about the legends and watch it for what it is, it’s a great film.
