Movie Review: The King's Speech

5/10/2011 04:08:00 AM

This past weekend, I actually watched a movie IN ITS ENTIRETY and I adored it.

Oh my, I'm willing to say that The King's Speech was the best movie I've seen in quite.some.time.

I enjoyed the storyline. I appreciated the acting. And my heart was warmed - and I'm a sucker for all those things.

Colin Firth? He deserved his Best Actor oscar.

Helena Bonham Carter? AHHH. I cannot even express how much I enjoy her.

Geoffrey Rush (Barbossa in Pirates of the Caribbean) was incredible.

Have you seen it? Did you like it? Why or why not?




  1. I saw it. And I loved it.

    I agree with you, best movie I've seen in a long time.

  2. And Helena was filming the Harry Potter finale at the same time. Two DRASTICALLY different characters - and she nails them both.

    In fact, three of the actors did the same thing: Gambon (played the king, Firth's father) and the guy who played Churchill.

  3. I thought it was great too! Wow, the pressure that is put on people born into monarchy! And Lionel was such a good friend to the king. I was touched.

  4. loved it. in fact, i loved it so much that i saw it in the theater twice. which i NEVER do. but it was so brilliantly witty and well done. i loved the 2 strong male leads, but loved that they were backed by equally strong women.

  5. AH! I love that so many of you loved this movie.

    jayber - that's incredible. I strongly feel that Helena is incredible. I'm liking her more and more...

  6. I LOVED this movie!

    My mom has a crush on Geoffrey Rush, teehee!!
