Give it a tug by dejan-delic Give it a tug by dejan-delic

‘Right, ten digits round the blunt bit. Give it a tug. Left foot, right foot. Collect your brand. Back on the barge.’ :D


I still don’t get it why ‘King Arthur: Legend of the sword’ has so bad critics evaluation. The movie is nothing but amazing. :nod:

I know! I've watched it like 3 times, so many great features about it - probably my favourite Guy Ritchie movie - but that could simply be because it's the latest I've seen : ]

Sure, it's amazing movie. Too bad the critics give it a bad rating and stopped with making another 5-6 sequels, as it was planned. :roll: :furious:

This was definitely one of last years best movies. Fast paced action and phenomenal music, solid special effects, great performances all around, a surprisingly complex yet still evil villain. My only complaints would be some weird personality issues with Arthur's character as he was really inconsistent in the first two thirds of the movie. The middle also pulls the whole movie down, looking more like a bizarre  trailer montage, most likely stemming from the fact that the movie was originally 3 and a half hours long, and they had to chainsaw it to a more digestible length, removing entire scenes, characters and story lines. It was also pretty weird that you had African and Asian people around in medieval Britain, Djimon Hounsou is a really talented actor, but he was still  out of place. The Legend of Prince Valiant also featured a black knight of The Round Table, but his back story was very well told.

I personally enjoyed the movie, although parts just needed to be trimmed. Training montage on mysterious island no one will ever mention again. A better pacing on where Arthur was going plot wise might have lead to a better rating. But god did I love the way they treated Excalibur. And that end with Arthur flexing his might and showing mercy. He was great.

Agree, that island part was way to rushed, and they could expand it a bit, because what we saw for that little time was amazing. Giant bats, Dragon, all kind of things luring in the dark forest...it should be longer, absolutely. But overall, movie is great. :D

You should read Mary Stewarts "The Crystal Cave" and her follow-on, "The Hollow Hills". Follows Merlin from being a boy to setting up Arthur as King of all England, Uther Pendragon, the Lady of the Lake... it's fantastic, particularly if you'd like to see Merlin as a young man.

Re: The movie. It's always nice to bring the legends up to date and put in those little bits of the 21st century (costumes, dialogue, mannerisms etc.) but some heroes, unlike Sherlock Holmes, don't lend themselves as readily to such re-imaginings. Personally, I thought it was great, as great as this image in fact.

I think the hate became an echo chamber as some critics felt it didn't kowtow to political correctness enough. I saw it at a preview screening before reviews came out and everyone loved it, strangers were gushing to each other about it. Great soundtrack too. One of my favorite films of that year.

Odusevljen sam Guy Richijem .. kad covjek pravi film, vidi se da ga pravi jer uziva u tome, i jer stvarno to voli da radi, i prvenstveno to radi zbog sebe a ne publike i da bi udovoljio siroj masi. Film je pun njegovih da to nazovem "reziserskih potpisa" koje iskljucivo on praktikuje skoro kroz svaki njegov film, a opet sjajno je odradjen.. muzika dize adrenalin do daske, glumac je pun pogodak, ako bih trazio dlaku u jaje jedina zamjerka bi mi bila - zbrzan sami kraj..

P.S. love the artwork as always! ^_^

Šta da kažem osim da se slažem u potpunosti sa tvojim komentarom. :D Čovek jednostavno zna da napravi sjajan film, nebitno da li se radi o sadašnjem vremenu ili o priči koja seže u daleku prošlost, u ovom slučaju o priči koja je ujedno i legenda. Tačno se vidi prepoznatljiv Rithie-jev potpis, baš ono što svaki njegov film čini jedinstvenim. Ubitačna akcija, dobar humor, pametni dijalozi, a ni muzika nije izostala da da viši nivo celokupnoj atmosferi. Charlie Hunnam pokidao. :D

Tnx a lot, man! As always! :D :beer: :ahoy:

I wouldn't say amazing movie, but certainly was fun to watch.

A friend of mine didn't like it purely because of Charlie Hunnam. Not sure why the hate though.

Good drawing nonetheless :)

Fair enough. But it wasn't that bad as critics have said, IMO. 6.8 on IMDb is a pretty low evaluation.

Dunno, to me Charlie did a great job on Arthur. I guess it's all depends on a viewer. ;)

Tnx, appreciate it! :D
