Kingdom of God in America

My coworkers and I went to go see Kingdom of Heaven tonight. It wasn’t bad. I am not going to say it’s my favourite, either, though. I wasn’t very familiar with Ridley Scott — at least not conciously — until lately, until the aforementioned coworkers went on about him.

It was very reminiscent of Gladiator, that’s for sure, at least with regards to the fight scenes and general choreography. Regardless, trying to cram hundreds of years of crusades into a couple of years movie-time and 2 1/2 hours theatre-time is going to miss on a few counts.

Anyway, what did I do? Of course! The first thing I did was look it up on Free Republic.

They didn’t like it, needless to say.
