Tristan and Isolde

D and I went and saw it last night. Unless you are totally dying to see a mid level chick flick with mildly interesting costumes, I would say wait and rent it. It was not horrible, but it was not that exciting either. They didn't stay true enough to the story. They did for a while in the beginning and then they just sort of meandered waaaay off the storyline. That was disappointing as it is a pretty cool legend.

The hardest part for me was that I really liked the guy she was forced to marry. So the whole time she was betraying him, it made her character a lot less sympathetic.

I had little to no emotional response to this movie. So I would not even call it sappy.

Would you cheat on This Guy?
to be with This Guy?
Um, no.

Am I the only one who thinks James Franco looks like Jeff Buckley (and is therefore totally hot)?

I guess I could see that a little, but he doesn't have any depth as far as I can see. To me he looks like he might have been an underwear model or something before he was an actor. he also doesn't look like a very good kisser.
Where Rufus just looks like he would be fun to talk to... make out with... whatever. Not to mention the fact that he is all dark smoldering goodness with perfect lips! (I have always been a sucker for dark hair, dark eyes and older men, so I may be biased here.)

Rufus Sewell... I've loved him since "Dark City." :)

And I kind of agree with Sloop.
