King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017; Guy Ritchie) – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 6
Failed film franchise experts Daniel and Corky saddle their magic battle elephants to fight the empty CGI spectacle of Guy Ritchie’s 2017 bomb King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
Starring the never dynamic Charlie Hunnam, Legend of the Sword left out Merlin, Lancelot, Guinevere and the Holy Grail in favor of creating an elaborate backstory for a rock, and yet the film still bombed with audiences and critics.
Liberally borrowing their analysis from Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, Daniel and Corky discuss the merits of “filmmaking vomit,” the significance of the slow-motion scream and the many faces of Goosefat Bill.
