      I *hated* the film *First Knight*: it practically blessed Lance and Gwen's
      affair, even from Arthur's deathbed. Gwen will eternally be a blonde for
      me; a brunette Gwen is dubious to me, though it's likely she could be one
      if she's Celtic (depends on your favorite sources); lots of dark haired
      folk. Why does Connery appear in so many dreadful films? O;) ---djb

      Why not just wear a headset to the theatre and get a more pleasant
      soundtrack for the whole thing, not just the music? It's not like very
      much in the plot would be a surprise, and that which was a surprise you'd
      be better off not knowing.

      Only one film I've ever watched all the way through was so bad I felt like
      demanding a refund, not of my money, but of the time it sucked out of my
      life. This was "First Knight", an Arthurian fluff utterly unredeemed by
      the presence of Sean Connery, John Gielgud, and even Alexis Denisof.
