Hollywood, Meh-llywood

Getting bored with all the superhero movies /remakes /adaptations /sequels /trilogies (or rather, pentalogy for some, like the Transformers: The Last Knight or Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales that are now in their fifth installments. Worse still is Fast and Furious, which is now in their eight installment. I would have called that an octalogy but apparently there will be a ninth and a tenth installment in the future [which would make that a decalogy, in case you’re wondering]. I mean, who watches F&F anymore??).

The only movie I’m really hyped up on watching this year is Guy Ritchie’s modern re-telling /re-imagining of the legend of King Arthur, which has been described as, “Lord of the Rings meets Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,” according to Charlie Hunnam, the lead actor playing King Arthur. And that’s not saying much about the movies coming out of Hollywood these days. And don’t even get me started about the A.I.-themed (i.e. humans vs. robots) movies. Can we get back to telling real, original and heartfelt stories about humans now, please?

Anyways, go watch the trailer for King Arthur. It looks like fun:
