Watched "New Moon" last night, enjoyable but not as good as Twilight.

The Princess Bride. It's one of my old favourites but I hadn't watched it in years and my partner had never seen it, so it was good to share it with him. We both enjoyed it :) .

I did notice however, that the costuming was more accurately Medieval than some of the Historical movies I've seen!

I love Buttercup's wardrobe! Especially the blue one and the wedding dress.

For those who like Shakespeare, there's a new version of Hamlet running on PBS tonight on Great Performances. David Tennant of Doctor Who fame is the melancholy prince, and Sir Patrick Stewart as Claudius. Should be interesting.

I saw Centurion, the new Roman film last Friday. After so much time spent looking forward to it, I wasn't that surprised to be disappointed by it. It's so hard not to nit pick at the historical inaccuracies, but even with those put aside, Centurion didn't quite hit the mark. :(
(Here's hoping that Eagle of the Ninth, out later this year, does.)
