#presses this film to my chest like a hot water bottle #i vividly remember seeing this in the cinema and i hadn’t really investigated it fully and thought it was a genuine period-accurate chaucer #and for the first 3 or so minutes and I was just wtf?? #and then i recall it perfectly - my brain just said FUCK IT THIS IS AWESOME #SOMEONE CRANK UP THE QUEEN SOUNDTRACK #GET IN LOSER - WE’RE GOING JOUSTING #and there’s practically no cast member i would not messily make out with #in a handsy way
I absolutely rank this as one of the big Moments in my life as a person who actively engages with text. That is, this is a movie that you either decide to just GO WITH or you peace out as soon as you see a crowd of medieval jousting fans jamming to “We Will Rock You.” You CANNOT just passively take it in. You MUST make a choice, and either accept or reject its wacky nature.
I, obviously, decided that HELL YES was I into this and have never regretted it.
A TOAST TO ALL WHO ARE INTO A KNIGHT’S TALE UNIRONICALLY, particularly if you’re also an English history/language geek.
My only regret is that Chaucer’s costume did not remain just Paul Bettany’s skin.
fenris’s feet are very important to me
How many dwarfs does it take to open a door?
Besides this being hilarious- do Dwarves even have doors with latches like that? They may have genuinely never had to use a door like that?
i just love how the dwarves slam against the door like a baker’s dozen of extremely dumb birds flying into a skyscraper window
we need to talk about how all 12 of them are just like “OPEN SESAME YOU DAMN DOOR” and thorin just comes through like “YOU FRICKIN’ IDIOTS” and lifts the latch with a princess hand
He is genuinely quite odd.
Cumberbatch and RDJ are great (well, RDJ is OKish), but they’re both scripted partly as these male fantasy figures. Like James Bond with Aspergers. Very alpha-male. You’d never get them wandering around a museum with a sign that read “THIS IS A FRAUDULENT DIMETRODON” or wearing comfy jumpers that look like something their grandma bought for them.
I like that Elementary is basically, yeah, this guy is a nerd.
Chris Evans, impersonating Tom’s impression of Chris playing Loki, pretending to be Captain America vs Tom Hiddleston, Impersonating Chris Evans, as Loki, pretending to be Captain America
where is that light coming from??
Joker singing aka the best part of Mass Effect 2
THAT’S THE CUTEST THING EVER
The similarities between The Disney Renaissance and The Disney Revival (including the low years before both of them)
Yes, I know the chronological order was changed a teensy bit…
Does this mean the next 5 or 6 movies are going to follow the same pattern?
