It's not even a good crusade, either. #3. I guess we can be glad it's not #4.
I saw a clip last night. A cavalry charge in slow motion- oh, puhleeze!
Some Christians are predictably upset about the portrayal of same in the film.
Guys. Crusades. Not your finest hour.
I don't know why it is but the Crusades make me come over all maudlin. Maybe I died at the Horns of Hattin in one of my earlier outings. Whatever the reason, I really, really want this film to be good, and it bugs me that it won't be.
He never gets particularly good reviews- but I guess someone up there must love him.
Don't tell me, let me guess, Brad Pitt as Richard I and Orlando Bloom as Saladin?
Orlando Bloom as some blacksmith or other and Liam Neeson as a Jedi knight (sorry- knight templar or knight hospitaller or whatever)
Not me. I want to gaze at Orlando Bloom, be he ever so stupid.
Be still, my heart.
He is very pretty, I'll grant you that.
This time he gets to wear a beard.
I saw a brief trailer for this a week ago. Eh.
I'm with you, I'd like to see this done properly, but I suspect we're going to be treated to a lot of battles, loud noises, and crappy dialogue and acting ala Alexander. I didn't even see that one and it pissed me off. Colin Firth with a bad dye job playing my favorite historical figure? I think not.
I was disappointed with the wayAlexander looked as well. So much so that I didn't go see it either. Too bad, because Stone is a talented filmmaker and I do like Colin Farrell. *sigh* Oh, well.
Oops - you're right, it's Farrell not Firth.
Mr Darcy conquers the known world- I like it.
And doing so with impeccably good taste and manners. ;-)
But with a certain hauteur which might cause some persons to form a prejudice against him.
I'm getting tired of computer generated spectacle. I just don't think armies of pixillated characters look the same as armies of real live human beings. Everybody was going wild about the battles in LOTR, but I wasn't that impressed.
I didn't see Alexander either- but then I can't be doing with Oliver Stone's brand of melodrama.
