I’m no fan of any hunter. They serve absolutely no purpose at all. They offer up lame excuses for hunting, like keeping a species in check for the sake of the species. That excuse is pure trash though. If you believe that excuse then you must also believe that human population should be culled for the sake of the species too. After all, the human population is really the only species with unchecked growth that is rapidly growing.
Personally, I wish we did have an alien Predator species who would come down, abduct the hunters, take them to another planet, disarm them, and then hunt them down. Let’s see how hunters react to be shot down for no reason at all. Maybe then they wouldn’t see hunting defenseless animals as a sport. To top it off, at least the human prey would know they are being hunted. The defenseless animals don’t even know that some bottom feeder hunter has them in their sites.
I’ve had a long time to think about this and my opinion on it will never change. I can tolerate hunters, even be friendly to them, but I have no respect for them. I will NEVER be a “friend” to a hunter. I find their idea of “sport” to be disgusting and despicable. If only those Predators would come for them.
It’s no Excalibur but King Arthur Legend of the Sword is a damn fine movie. I know the critics blasted it but it is an Arthurian Legend movie so I had to see it. What I really liked about this interpretation was that it leaned toward fantasy over this boring trend that I have been seeing in movies and books to take the Arthurian legends to as close to reality as one can get. No thanks… I’ll take some wonderful fantasy elements with magic, a sword of power, and interesting creatures and demons. That’s where all the fun is!!!
There are several places where the story jumps around fast, backtracks to tell plot details, and then jets off to move forward. Some may call it frenetic but Guy Ritchie harnesses this style in a really unique way that never bores the viewer. There are always new and interesting things to look at too. Also, Excalibur may just be the ultimate sword of power in this interpretation. Sometimes the scenes of Arthur wielding the sword are reminiscent of some very cool anime scenes, in that you really see the power within Excalibur being used.
For me, there is no beating Excalibur (1981) as a movie but at the same time, I love seeing different interpretations of the story and this one is definitely a unique and fun interpretation to see. The critics really got it wrong on this one.
