Movie Date Night – King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Movie Date Night - King Arthur | Raine In The City

I just got home from watching a screening of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and I enjoyed it enough that I decided to write a post about it! I have an overwhelming love for sword/fantasy/castle-related movies, so King Arthur has been on my radar for a while (especially since it’s directed by Guy Ritchie- I had to see how that combo was going to turn out).

While waiting in line at the theater, I read some not-so-flattering reviews of the movie and started to get a little worried. I decided not to read any spoilers and go in with an open mind. In the end, I really enjoyed it! Things seemed a little disjointed at times, and the ending left something to be desired, but I would consider it a really fun summer action/fantasy movie. There was a good smattering of Guy Ritchie-heist scenes, which really gave the whole thing a sort of Robin Hood vibe. Effects were loud and over the top, but that’s what I was expecting based on the trailer (& we saw it in 3-D, so I actually jumped a few times). It’s not like any other King Arthur-esque movie I’ve seen, and I think that’s a good thing.

The music was probably my favorite part. I have a serious love for old ballads, and “The Devil and the Huntsman” really reminded me of the old ballad “Lord Randall.” I went and downloaded the whole soundtrack as soon as I got home!

After the movie, we tried to pull the sword from the stone; I guess neither of us are secretly the true king of Britain. Either way, it got me super excited to go to the Georgia Renaissance Festival next week!

I promise y’all, my hair looked cute and wavy in this side ponytail before I stepped outside. It pretty much frizzed up immediately, but I still kind of liked it, haha. I try not to wear my glasses that often for photos, but I was really feeling my glasses-self today! My top is from J Crew, and lipstick is Buxom’s Sinful Cinnamon.  And my Kate Spade watch… funny story about this watch. I actually got it for Christmas (after obsessing over it for months). For whatever reason, I was scared to wear it, afraid that I’d scratch it or mess it up somehow, since it’s my first nice grow-up watch. I just started wearing it this weekend at Doggies on the Catwalk, and I’m pretty sure I’m never going to take it off again.

So there you have it- a midnight review of King Arthur and a date night outfit! If you’re another swordfight+fantasy movie fan, let me know in the comments!
