A Knight’s Tale : He Will Rock You

This entry was posted in Action, Adventure, Comedy, Drama by Snowfoxx on

This movie was a blockbuster in 2001, and rightly so. Director/writer Brian Hegleland treated us to a tale of jousting tournaments set in mostly France and partly in England in the 14th century, but with a soundtrack featuring upbeat classic rock with artists like Queen, Bachmann Turner Overdrive, and David Bowie. Even though the lead actor was Heath Ledger, whom stole the show in The Dark Knight years later as The Joker, it is the supporting cast that keeps this movie flowing so well. It is pure entertainment that will keep anyone riveted for the duration of the movie. There is no slowing down at all.

The Patriot : Some things are worth fighting for.

Even though this movie came out over ten years ago, it seems to be striking home now more than ever, when our politics have gone haywire. Sometimes, it’s good to pull these retro DVDs down and remember what we celebrate ID4 for, and it has nothing to do with alien annihilation. Though annihilation of tyranny from overseas, that is another story, and this is where The Patriot comes into play.

The Brothers Grimm: No curse we can’t reverse. No spell we can’t break. No demon we can’t exterminate.

The year is 1812, Germany is occupied by the French during the Napoleonic Wars, and brothers Wilhelm (Matt Damon) and Jacob (Heath Ledger) Grimm are the Ghostbusters of the region, but for all the hags they have defeated, the demons they have vanquished, and the reputation they have gained, things are not as they seem. Jacob is a scholar,and knows of the tales of the region, and Wilhelm is a swindler, and uses Jacob’s knowledge of folklore to maintain a well-paid living. The go from town to town, using illusions, supposedly magical armour and artifacts to capture their undead and otherworldly prey. What the villagers they con do not know is that the creatures they capture and defeat are part of the illusion, and played by two other teammates in the Grimm business. Bunst (Richard Ridings) is the roadie, and does the work with the mechanics of the process. Hidlick (Mackenzie Crook) often plays the part of the creature they have been sent to capture. It’s not an honest living, but it is a good one.
