Bad medieval movie ahoy!

Russel Brand to star in comedy set in 14th century. Apparently he’s playing a (historical) mercenary named John Haskwood.

    Oh dear, I don’t know if I find that encouraging. But the two pictures together there make me wonder how far Brand is willing to go with his acting commitments. You know, will he… shave?

    Quite frankly, I’m growing more grateful that I saw ‘Beowulf’ with every day because no matter how horrendously mindless and anachronistic a Medieval movie is, I don’t think the sex scene between Angelina Jolie as Grendel’s mother and Beowulf (?!) can be topped.

    Although the version of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight starring Sean Connery as the Green Knight comes a close second.

    (jumps to action)

    I am so ready for this.

    Of course not. Why would he? They didn’t have disposable razors in the 14th century, and therefore they did not shave. And all monks were naturally bald on top. That is why they were monks – everyone else was so hirsute that they felt shamed into retiring.

    Did you see the trailer for Boromir Combats the Black Death? It had flagellants and all!
