I first saw the novel 'Richard III' when it was first published. The film adaptation of that is of an extremely high standard. I think the film version is very faithful to the novel, although the film is not necessarily more historically accurate. Richard III was a terribly bad king, a cruel man, and a chancer. For me the book was more about Richard's love for his wife and how she had to endure all this cruelty and unfair treatment. Richard's reign was very short and he could have easily been removed from power by his wife's father. But he stayed, and he was not held accountable for his actions, which the novel portrays so well. There were times when I thought, 'This is just wrong, how can he do this?' But then I realised, he was doing what he had to do to gain his throne. I also thought the film version was better than the novel. I was pleased to see that there was no turgid performance by Di Caprio, who is so often an actor who plays a man in his late forties. The performances of the younger cast were very good. But the performance by William Hurt in the role of Richard's father was very weak. His performance was very wooden, and although he was not the villain, he didn't get the role right either. I thought the film version was more faithful to the novel than the novel version of Richard III. But the film is not a film. It is an excellent production with a very good cast. The film version of Richard III is a fine production and I recommend it to those who want to see a superb production. 7/10

I think this movie was an attempt at creating a story about an era that did not exist but which does exist in my mind. I'm sure that most people have forgotten this period and the country that it came from. However, I have always wondered how the Earl of Huntingdon ever became King of England, he was only 12. I think the plot of the movie was slightly flawed. The Earl of Huntingdon had many good qualities, he was a great swordsman, a charismatic leader, a determined warrior, a man who would do anything to achieve his goals, and a great lover. However, he was also a man who was ashamed of his status as a Duke and never wanted to give up his position. He felt he had to be King of England because it was the right thing to do. As a result, when the Earl and his wife died, he was not the first to attempt this. However, he was the first to succeed. His wife was a young woman named Jane Seymour who was pregnant by the Earl and the Earl had intended to marry her but he changed his mind because of the scandal that the marriage might cause. The Earl's wife and the Earl's son were not the only ones who had to deal with a scandal. The Earl's second wife died shortly after her first marriage. The Earl's second wife had a son by the Earl, and the son was the Earl's heir. When he was a young man, he met Jane Seymour who was pregnant with his son. The Earl had intended to marry her and become a father for his son, but when he found out that she was pregnant by the Earl he had another wife. Although the Earl and his wife were proud of their position, he was ashamed of his status and became embarrassed when he learned that he was the Earl of Huntingdon. The Earl was not the only person who struggled to achieve his goals and his marriage was not the only scandal that he had to deal with. He had to deal with many other problems such as how to get a young bride for his son, how to protect his family from any harm, and how to gain respect from his people. I think that this movie was well done. I think that it was worth watching because it was based on real events.

The King of England is a movie about Henry VI (played by Christopher Plummer) and his two sons, Richard (played by Rupert Graves) and John (played by Christopher Plummer). In a time of turmoil, with the defeat of the French in France and the threat of foreign invasion from the Spanish Armada, Henry has turned his attention to the creation of a new nation in England and to the worship of the Virgin Mary. After Henry's death, Richard (played by Christopher Plummer) is crowned king. Richard and his band of supporters attack the town of Fotheringhay and slaughter the townspeople. The next morning, Richard's men burn down the royal palace in Salisbury. Richard becomes King and sends the parliament to him with a commission to make laws for England and to negotiate peace terms. They arrive in England and are welcomed with open arms by the people. The king is keen to use his power for his own purposes, and he uses the council to support his plans to take the English throne. Edward VI (played by Ian Holm) is a wealthy and powerful merchant who has become a close friend of the king. Edward is fond of Edward, but he is not a true friend. He is more interested in obtaining his own advantage than in serving the people of England. Edward VIII (played by Martin Freeman) is the younger son of Edward VIII, but he does not respect Edward VIII's claim to the throne. Edward's powers are so great that he is able to take control of England. Edward has no respect for Edward VI, but he has respect for Edward VIII. Edward VIII's behavior is always ruled by his need for power. He has lost the respect of the people and he is suspicious of Edward VI. The king wants to marry Elizabeth (played by Eva Green) and make her his queen. The king sends his ships to England and makes an attempt to invade. When Edward VI and Edward VIII make their attempt to invade England, the king makes a pact with Edward VIII to defend England. In the end, the king is able to defeat the English invasion. It is the beginning of the end for the monarchy of England. The actors who played the roles of Henry, Richard, and John were all great. They had great personalities. I was really impressed by the acting of Christopher Plummer. He had this great sense of rhythm. He had a great sense of movement in his eyes and he was able to control his facial expressions. When Edward VI was in power, he showed no emotion. He was ruthless. He was able to kill a man, then show no emotion about it. The king did not show the emotion that he was supposed to show, and that

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about this film when I heard about it. I've always loved Shakespeare and have been a fan of Richard Burton ever since I saw him in The Producers. However, I was not sure if he could pull off the role of Henry V. I'm glad I watched it. Richard Burton's performance is wonderful. I don't know if he was chosen because of his previous work, but he certainly does the role justice. I think he did a very good job with what he had to work with. I also really liked the way they made Henry V a bit more human. The music in this film is wonderful. It fits perfectly with the story and adds to the overall mood. The costumes and set designs are also very beautiful. It was a bit hard to get used to the look of the film. It did seem like a bit of a "cheap" movie to me. It has a lot of action and violence, but it does not feel that way. It was a bit like watching a video game. I don't know if it was the actors or the director, but it was a bit of a blur to me. The story is a bit thin, but it still kept me interested and engaged. I'm sure it's a good film to watch with a group of friends. I think it is an excellent film for a family to watch. It is very interesting to see how history is depicted in this film. I think the film would be great for young people to watch. I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys history and great drama. It is a great film for the whole family to watch. It is a good movie to watch with your friends. It is a good movie to watch with your family. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who loves history or drama. I think this film is a great choice for the whole family.
