Post-Father's Day Movie Review

Since yesterday was a day for fathers, Husband basically called the shots, and his call was to do as little as possible. Fine by me!

We'd started watching a movie while we were in Columbus, but didn't get to finish or even find out the title. Husband was hooked, so I trudged to Blockbuster last week to find the movie for him as part of his father's day gift.

That movie was King Arthur.

Now, I had a heaping helping of all things British when I was in college (English major, remember), so I became a bit of an Anglo-phile there, with a special interest in the Arthurian legend.

I've seen Excalibur, I've read The Mists of Avalon and liked that point of view, but this movie was pretty good. Sure, Merlin was there, but it wasn't all that supernatural stuff, all oogie-boogie hocus pocus.

My the one sticking point for me was Keira Knightley. She's a good actress, I just can't stand that mouth of hers. Always pursed...ugh.

As for Husband, he liked it too.
