  4. I love the Arthurian Legends but I'm sick to death of all the endless movies and TV series made from them over the past 10-15 years. However, I will go see Guy Ritchie's version just because he's directing it and I like his work.

    2. Maybe if we're lucky, Arthur and Lancelot will be lovers in this one. I don't think that angle has been explored before?

  7. Leona Lewis's Bleeding Love came up on SongPop today and I was thinking, "Whatever happened to her?" Now I know! I never really cared for that song, Walking on Sunshine, but she did a good job remaking it. Her version sounds a lot less obnoxious...and her video is DEFINITELY better than the Katrina & The Waves one was: http://youtu.be/iPUmE-tne5U

  14. You know, ever since Guy Ritchie cast Madonna in that one terrible movie (what the hell was it called? see, so bad I can't even remember the title!), I just can't take anything he does seriously.
