Bring me the head of Jerry Bruckheimer
I watched King Arthur last night, the "historically accurate" one that came out recently. I Tivo'd it, except I don't have Tivo - I have a Motorola DVR, but Moto'd it hasn't really caught on yet; fingers crossed. Anyway, if you're thinking of watching this movie, you'd be better served to shove a bamboo shishkabob skewer in your eyeball.
If you're going to do a "historical" take on a legend and then you Hollywoodize it to make for better entertainment then what you're really doing is fabricating a less endearing legend from an already better one. By the end of the movie I was rooting for the Black Pearl to make an appearance and kill the lot of them. I like Clive Owen, but he's earned about 4 years in purgatory for staring in this abortion.
On a lighter note, I just bought a $126.94 universal remote control on Amazon.com. It's a Logitech Harmony H-688S. You plug it into your computer and fill out a webform saying what equiptment you've got. Then you can junk your other remotes. It should be bad ass.
As you can imagine, unless I can update my blog from my new remote control, I'll see you in August.
