Worst retelling of the Arthurian Legend ever.
I was disgusted with this movie. The characters in the movie were not
believable at all, nor did they have any similarity to the people you find
in other tellings of the story of King Arthur. What happened to the
relationships between these people? What happened to King Arthur in this
movie to turn him into such a horrible person? I have never been so
disappointed in a movie character before. The King Arthur I know would
have been leading the charge to execute Guinivere. He should have loved
her, but this King Arthur had no feelings at all except for
And it wasn't just Arthur; there was no depth to any of these characters.
There was nothing to make you feel any sense of connection to them at all.
If you don't care what happens, why bother watching at all? This movie
just a waste of time..

Black Swan Year: 2010 Runtime: 1ч. 47 min Country: USA Director: Darren Aronofsky Cast: Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Vincent Cassel... Genre: Drama | Thriller Subs: BUL Plot: Nina (Portman) is a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her obsessive former ballerina mother Erica (Hershey) who exerts a suffocating control over her. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side - a recklessness that threatens to destroy her. .

I enjoyed this movie and want to watch again. She is a woman that can respect a great man of nobility, as seen in her husband, hence I see her conflict..

Excalibur, the word whose choose "the one" become the king.
Casablanca is a great romance, a stirring wartime adventure, a suspenseful action movie, and in the end, a terrific movie. It’s listed again and again on the top ten lists of critics and fans alike. The Illusionist - A crisp, intelligent, dynamic confection, The Illusionist is the right blend of romance and mystery, and a true piece of movie magic. .
great movie .
There are better Arthurian movies out there
The movie, First Knight by Jerry Zucker is in my opinion a terrible
rendition of any Arthurian legend; granted I have yet to read the tale
of Lancelot and Guinevere. The story telling of this film and it's
relevance toward legendary accuracy is not what I am questioning for
this movie. The methods of telling a tale of love, chivalry, and war
used in this film are terrible.
First of all, casting is an important role for any film to be a success
or a failure. The actors in the movie not only have to look good in
front of a camera and studio lights, which it appears is the only
aspect that was taken in for First Knight, but the actors have to be
able to play the part they are given convincingly. Richard Gere has the
noble look, but never once in all of his movie career history has he
looked the war torn, experienced fighter type. He looks no more like a
real knight than the sun could be disguised as the moon, the role
doesn't fit him at all. Sean Connery however could have been a good
choice for King Arthur had his script been better. In this movie, he
comes off as a peaceful man who'd never lift his sword for fear of
straining is back. As he is a former James Bond, he also falls under
the category of looking nice in front of lights and cameras despite not
fulfilling a key character's role.
Aside from role selection, the acting overall is weak. None of the
characters are convincing of their roles. When fighting, the knights
have very little to no armor and the choreography is so poorly executed
that it looks as though the actors could fall over from the wind
blowing as easily as they do when they "hit" each other. I've seen
better high school film fight scenes than this movie puts forth. On
that note, King Arthur, King of the Britains, never raises Excalibur,
the most renowned sword in history, in battle. The only time he makes a
motion to fight for himself; he slightly raises the sword and then gets
shot by four arrows. These arrows and weapons are also ill convincing;
I'm almost positive that crossbows the size of a small handgun, as all
of Malagant's soldiers carry, were not readily available at the time
that these Arthurian legends were supposedly taking place. On that
note, the end of Arthur's life is not even a valiant one. How is it
that the legendary King Arthur is taken down by a lowly villain's group
of henchmen and a man who's betrayed all of the country by deceiving
the King defeats the evil villain and takes all the spoils? I just
don't understand the logic behind this kind of screenplay. Lancelot's
always the one saving the queen, a woman who doesn't even want to love
him, while Arthur, the man who single handedly united the kingdoms,
sits back and plans matters for far too long. There isn't even a
redeeming battle between Arthur and Lancelot to save this poorly
written love triangle. This movie is just about making a pretty
chick-flick out of a classic legend where everything ends up happy and
the pretty boy takes it all. I don't recommend this for personal
