Ok so my friend and i are talking about the utter FAILURE of the King Arthur movie that came out earlier this year and I was just wondering if you had any ideas as to how a King Arthur film could be made and be successful and good because Merlin survived for 4 years so why the hell can't a King Arthur movie be good and succeed?
Given how much of a hoot Man from U.N.C.L.E. was, I’m surprised the new Arthur flick was apparently so dull. I’m not especially familiar with the material beyond Monty Python and some of the stuff in Seven Soldiers, but surely a mythical, colorful, very arch straightforward take on the material could draw some butts into some seats if handled competently? He’s a noble man who finds a magic sword in acknowledgement of that and teams up with other good people to fight what needs to be fought; that shouldn’t be so hard to get right.
Alternatively, there was that one Tumblr post about an office sitcom where it slowly turns out all the coworkers are reincarnations of the round table, and I’d be down for that. Or hell, in that regard just do Camelot 3000 or something, I’ve heard good things.
