What, a , blimmin, schtinker.

I mainly went to see Elizabeth on the promise of an epic naval battle between the Spanish Armada and the outgunned English.

Sadly, I didn’t get it.  Instead, Elizabeth focuses on the promise of a romance between the Queen and the pirate Walter Raleigh. This isn’t such a bad thing, because the costumes and sets are sumptuous, and Kate Blancett is an outstanding actor.

Pity that the storyline is mostly bullshit cobbled together from a series of events.

And Readings on Courtney has started putting out these massive, 7-min bloody previews.  They’re annoying, and should be stopped.
