We rented and watched A Knight’s Tale on Tuesday night. I really enjoyed it. I loved the eighties music–who would have ever dreamed Queen could/would be used as background music for a medieval story line. I think what made the movie really enjoyable was the effective blend of the times. Obviously, the costumes were medieval, and the story of a commoner aspiring to be a knight has medieval origins. But, the actors portrayed their roles as moderns. They weren’t trying to act how they thought people of the medieval period would act. And, I think that made the characters better and more likeable.
On to Anne of Green Gables . . . I rented the 2-volume Disney movie today. After I watch that, I promise to post my review of the whole Anne book series and my thoughts on the movie. Hmmm . . . I write such things as if someone really reads this stuff.
