I have been watching Merlin episodes.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I'm going to see The Lone Ranger with my daughter later on this afternoon. I don't think it's got many good reviews, has it? I wonder what I will make of it even it does have Johnny Depp in it!

[quote=""DianeL""]"The Trojan Women" with Bujold, Hepburn, Redgrave, and Papas ('71). Thoughts here. A remarkable production![/quote]

Saw this a year or so ago (also on Netflix for a while) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Your blog comments are spot on!

Faith, thank you very much - from you, I take that as praise and am grateful! :) It came at precisely the right moment; not the sort of movie you can watch when you're not in just the mood, is it?

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I was dragged to see the second installment of the Percy Jackson franchise. I can't blame the script on the actors, but maybe they could try a little harder?

Stumbled upon the old 1960 film, 5 Branded Women, and watched it on Youtube (in English with Spanish subtitles; it's not available on DVD). I hadn't seen it since I was kid, but had never forgotten the scene where they cut the women's hair off for consorting with a German Lothario during WW2. I had also forgotten it took place in Yugoslavia (and not France, as my rusty memory thought).

I watched Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris on the plane coming home from Brussels, Luxembourg and Paris!
