The Legend of Hercules

I watched Legend of Hercules. It has Kellan Lutz, Gaia Weiss, Scott Adkins, Roxanne McKee, and Kenneth Cranham in it.

Big Warning: there is lots of violence.

This movie is the story of how Hercules was born and about his first love. Hercules is the son of Zeus. His “step-father” wanted him dead because he thinks his wife had affair with someone. (she did sorta.) Hercules fakes his death and is bought into a fight club. He later accepts that he is the son of Zeus and he kills his half-brother and his “step-father.” (No, this movie doesn’t have the twelve trails has to do. I think that comes later on.)

I loved this movie. Next week I’m watching Hercules

Monty Python’s Life of Brian

I watched Monty Python’s Life of Brian. It was on Netflix. It has Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Kenneth Colley, and Charles McKeown in it.

Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

In this movie, a man named Brian had been born in stable beside the stable where Jesus was born. He ends up been mistaken for Jesus.

I liked the movie. It was funny. Next week I’m watching The Legend of Hercules

Season of the Witch

I know I was supposed to watch Monty Python’s Life of Brian, but I couldn’t watch it unfortunately. So instead I watched Season of the Witch. I had taped it when it was on HBO. But I watched it on Tubi. It has Nicolas Cage (love him), Ron Perlman (love him), Claire Foy, Robert Sheehan, Christopher Lee, and Kevin Killebrew.

Warning: The title is a deceiving. There is lots of violence and sad parts at the end.

In this movie the Crusades are happening. In one battle, two of knights realize they are killing women and children in the name of “God.” They decide to quit. (I don’t blame of them.) On their journey, they go to a town and they are thrown in jail for not obey the Church. They were asked to take a girl who is accused of being a witch to a monastery so she can be tried as a witch. They end up doing that and discover that they should haven’t took her there.

I sorta liked this movie. Next week I will watch Monty Pythion’s Life of Brian.

Bohemian Rhapsody

I watched Bohemian Rhapsody. I had taped it when it was on HBO. It has
Rami Malek (love him), Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello,
Aidan Gillen (love him), Allen Leech, Tom Hollander, Mike Myers (love him),
Aaron McCusker in it.

Note: I love the song Bohemian Rhapsody and I became a fan of Queen because the song. I think Rami was a perfect pick to play Freddie and he did a great job. It is sad that Freddie is dead. He was a great storyteller, singer, and songwriter.

This movie is about how the band Queen started and how they became an epic band.

I loved this movie. Next week I’m watching Monty Python’s The Life of Brian.

Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life

I watched Monty Python’s Meaning of Life. I had taped it when it was on Flix, but I watched it on Peacock. It has John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, and Simon Jones in it.

Warning: there are some gross parts.

In this movie, the comedy group tackles the topic the meaning of life with different stages of life.

Even though I didn’t like the gross parts, I did like movie. Next week I’m watching Bohemian Rhapsody.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

I finished reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. It is the second (first according to some people) book of the Narnia book series. There is a movie based on the book. Yes, I have seen the movie with Chris. I also re-watched the movie because I couldn’t remember some of it. I also had seen some of a BBC/PBS show many years ago of the book.

Warning: there is some violence.

In this book, Four children (Lucy, Susan, Edmund, and Peter) are sent off to a professor’s house during war time. The Professor is Digory from The Magician’s Nephew. Lucy finds a wardrobe in a room of the professor’s house while playing hide and seek. The wardrobe is made of the tree that came from Narnia. Lucy sneaks in the wardrobe and goes in Narnia. She meets a Faun who tells her about the witch and things about Narnia. To escape the witch, Lucy goes back through the wardrobe. She tells her siblings, but they don’t believe her until Edmund goes in the wardrobe with her. He is tricked by the witch. Edmund lies about Narnia, but Peter and Susan find out that Narnia is real. They meet Aslan and they have battle with the witch. The witch is killed by Aslan and the children become kings and queens of Narnia. The grow older and they find the lamp post and the way back to the wardrobe. But when they go back through the wardrobe, they are back as children and no time as passed. They learn they can’t go back to Narnia the same way they did, but they can go back to Narnia.

I loved this book. Now I’m reading The Horse and His Boy by: C.S. Lewis. It is the third (fifth according to some people) book of the Narnia book series.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

I watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I had taped it when it was on IFC, but I watched it on Netflix. It has John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle,
Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, Connie Booth, and Carol Cleveland.

Big Warning: the movie ends abruptly.

Side Note: When I had visited Chris up in NJ, his mother would get us tickets to Broadway shows. One year we saw Spamalot. I loved the show, but never seen this movie until now.

In this movie King Arthur looks for knights for his round table. He finds some and then God tells them they need to find the holy grail. They suspect the grail is in a castle, but never gain access to the castle and they are arrested for killing an historian.

I love this movie, but I wish it had a real ending. Next week I’m watching Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life.

King Arthur

I watched King Arthur. I had taped it when it was on Flix. It has Clive Owen,
Stephen Dillane, Keira Knightley, Ioan Gruffudd, Ray Winstone, Stellan Skarsgård, Ray Stevenson, and Ivano Marescotti in it.

Big Warning: there is lots of violence and it is a very sad movie.

In this movie, Arthur is a commander of some knights. They fight for Rome and the pope for many years. Many of the knights had died. They want to be free from fighting, but the pope wants them to do one last mission. The pope wants them to rescue a boy from the danger of the Saxons. They end up doing the mission. They go the village and discover a bishop had enslaved the people of the village and locked up a woman and her son. Arthur frees the woman and her son. The woman is Guinevere. She ends up killing the Bishop. They do end up killing the Saxons, but some more of the knights die. They do receive their freedom, but it was a waste (in my opinion).

I didn’t really like this movie. Next week I’m watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

I watched King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. It has Charlie Hunnam,
Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Jude Law, Djimon Hounsou, Craig McGinlay,
Tom Wu, and Neil Maskell.

Big Warning: there is lots of violence and a sad part.

I must say before I start the summary that this movie is awesome. In this movie, King Arthur is sent away from the castle when he was a boy. His uncle had cause the death of his father. He grows up learning how to hustle and fight. His uncle wants to build a tower that causes him to have magical powers. The Excalibar reappears and Arthur pulls the sword of the stone and his uncle wants to kill him so he can take over the land and the sword. But Arthur doesn’t handle the sword too good because he has to face the past. When he does, he defeats his uncle and becomes king.

I loved this movie. Next week I’m watching King Arthur. (This is the last King Arthur movie.)

King Arthur: Excalibur Raising

I watched King Arthur: Excalibur Raising. I watching it on Tubi. It has Adam Byard,
Annes Elwy, Gavin Swift, Nicola Stuart-Hill, Simon Armstrong, Stacey Daly,
Dewi Rhys Williams, and Paul Albertson.

Warning: there is lots of violence.

This is a retelling of King Arthur. In this version King Arthur has two sons. One has Morganna for a mother so he is evil. The other son is good. Morganna stole the holy grail which brings her son back to life. The other son is killed by guards in the city and is brought back to life by the Lady of the Lake and she gives him Excalibur. The half brothers go head to head and the good son wins.

I liked this movie. Next week I’m watching King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
