#presses this film to my chest like a hot water bottle #i vividly remember seeing this in the cinema and i hadn’t really investigated it fully and thought it was a genuine period-accurate chaucer #and for the first 3 or so minutes and I was just wtf?? #and then i recall it perfectly - my brain just said FUCK IT THIS IS AWESOME #SOMEONE CRANK UP THE QUEEN SOUNDTRACK #GET IN LOSER - WE’RE GOING JOUSTING #and there’s practically no cast member i would not messily make out with #in a handsy way
I absolutely rank this as one of the big Moments in my life as a person who actively engages with text. That is, this is a movie that you either decide to just GO WITH or you peace out as soon as you see a crowd of medieval jousting fans jamming to “We Will Rock You.” You CANNOT just passively take it in. You MUST make a choice, and either accept or reject its wacky nature.
I, obviously, decided that HELL YES was I into this and have never regretted it.
A TOAST TO ALL WHO ARE INTO A KNIGHT’S TALE UNIRONICALLY, particularly if you’re also an English history/language geek.
My only regret is that Chaucer’s costume did not remain just Paul Bettany’s skin.
This is the best movie, everyone else can go home
AS WELL AS HISTORICAL EPICNESS, THIS FILM HAS ONE OF THE BEST SOUNDTRACKS EVER ASSEMBLED.
QUEEN! DAVID BOWIE! AND THE EPIC THIN LIZZY!
IT IS ROCK N ROLL GOODNESS FROM START TO FINISH!
i love chicago and all but i absolutely do not recommend spending any amount of time there during summer. everyone honks a lot and it smells like garbage.
I came on this website for harry potter I did not expect to emerge as a multifandom feminist with a different sexuality
this is painfully accurate.
imperials nesting far away from each other in the lair in case something comes to attack them in the night
imperials only talking with other breeds, passing each other without a word, wondering if the other dragon feels like this is wrong too
imperials watching fae swarms, tundra snuggles and spiral tangles before going to find a ridgeback to cuddle because they feel so alone but they’re just too large
lonely imperials sleeping outside the lair because the stars make them feel smaller and it’s the only way they can feel that
lonely imperials waking up to find themselves surrounded by the other dragons, all sleeping happily, and being shocked to see another imperial on their other side
imperials interacting with the other imperials for the first time and realizing that it will hurt when the other is gone but the time with them is worth it
old imperials discussing proper death rituals with the leaders of their clan because they don’t want to accidentally hurt their friends
