I am told that if one views it as if it were a Star Wars
pre-pre-pre-prequel, it's not so bad. You know, fantasy with a bit of
action tossed in and built around a love story to keep the teenagers coming
to the theatres. <shrug> Bogdan and I haven't looked at it yet.
Despina de la will probably watch it one day, but I have too much other
stuff to do right now

- I have it's one of the most accurate movies I've ever seen, even if the
costuming is a bit odd in places. Oh and you get to see Colin Firth naked. : P

colin firth naked?
- I'd love to see any and all of the following:
1. Louise Labe, the French virago and poet. If Gaspara Stampa rates a movie, so does Louise.
2. The *true* story of Artemisia Gentileschi, not the abortion that showed up a few years claiming that she was actually in love with her rapist.
3. Aucassin & Nicolette.
4. The tragedy of Charles the Mad of France.
5. A decent version of Joan of Arc that doesn't include Mila Jojovich, Neal Patrick Harris, or a lousy script.
6. The story of the Spanish Carmelites, particularly Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross. They're my favorite religious figures of the Renaissance, and two of the great Doctors of the Church.
7. Pope Martin V. He managed to end the Great Schism. 'nuff said, true believers!
8. And for pure doomed romance, Francesca da Rimini. It doesn't get more doomed than that.
- When you mentioned St. Theresa, I remember that a few years ago the
EWTN network ran a series on St. Theresa that was done in Spanish
with subtitles that seemed extremely authentic to this lapsed
Lutheran. Perhaps it is out on video or DVD somewhere.
Decent historical movies of any period are hard to find. I grew up
on the NYC area's Million Dollar Movie that showed the same movie
twice a day for a week and I remember seeing all the biograpical
movies that were made in the 30's and 40's such as Louis Pasteur,
Disraeli, Richelieu etc. They may have not been as accurate as they
could have been, but they inspired me to investigate further.
Maybe we need to harness some of the talent in the SCA and produce a
few pictures of our own <G>.
