White Knights in CinemaPosted: July 24, 2013
“anal nathrak, uthvas bethud, do che-ol di-enve,”
i saw the movie YEEEEEEEEARS ago and i still love it. excalibur is one of my favorite movies (yeah yeah, i’m a nerd, i know). i was watching it this past weekend and the red-pill made me wince at this sub-plot of the movie.
despite the great fight scenes and the main story line there HAD to be some douchey part of the film. the affair between lancelot and guinivere was my “ew” red-pill moment. pre-red pill i thought it was all noble, yet fucked up wasting your time on a chick that’s married (especially your supposed “best friend”). but i know, i know, there has to be some romantic drama to every epic story.
but this was my first time watching it in YEARS. when the above scene played i winced. much to his credit lancelot comes through and remains true to his word and arrives to assist arthur and the others in the final battle against artur’s son mordred. yet, the moment has to be spoiled as lancelot dies still professing his love of guinivere. *rolls eyes*
that begs the question? can a white knight change his ways? my guess is maybe. but you can only guess with certainty if it’s written in the script.
Might be a little slow round here as I’m in Merritt island visiting my mom (who’s house sitting for my sis) and niece.
