The Three Musketeers (2011)

This entry was posted in Action, Adventure, DVD, Videos & Movies, Romance by Cleave on

This is one of the more interesting renditions of a classic tale that has been told so far. So what if it has flying ships and the fantastical works of Leonardo De Vinci and starts in Venice instead of France. It is a fun film to watch with some of the actors and actresses that we have come to love, playing characters that we wouldn’t expect them to play. You really wont care if your favorite is playing the bad guy or the bad girl, they are great in just about any film that they show up in.

It is a time of unrest where a young inexperienced King Louis XIII of France (Freddie Fox) is ruling a vast empire with his arranged bride Queen Anne (Juno Temple) who he doesn’t even know how to talk to. With no concept of leadership he has to rely on the guidance and advice from that of Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz). Richelieu takes full advantage of this and makes sure his guard and not the Musketeers are in charge of security. He wants nothing to get in the way of him ruling in the King’s and Queen’s place. He just has a few problems to get rid of first.

Interesting thing about cooking game simulations is the fact that it tends to be much easier to create the dishes they are attempting to to teach you how to make is easier in your own kitchen than it is using a mouse-powered kitchen. Cooking Academy 2: World Cuisine is just that kind of a sim. While it is very interesting to learn all these great dishes from China, India, Thailand, France, Italy, and Japan and other nations, it can be a bit frustrating if you don’t click that mouse in a certain direction. There are many great recipes, but unlike the 2 Tasty series, you really don’t get to keep any of these. Many of the dishes are ones we already are familiar with, and if you like exotic dishes, most likely, you might know how to make.
