Our review of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword starring Charlie Hunnam, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey and Jude Law. Synopsis: After the murder of his father, young Arthur’s power-hungry uncle Vortigern seizes control of the crown. Robbed of his birthright, he grows up the hard way in the back alleys of the city, not knowing who he truly is. When fate leads him to pull the Excalibur sword from stone, Arthur embraces his true destiny to become a legendary fighter and leader.
We also talk with author Adrienne Kress. Longtime listeners of the show will know Adrienne from her previous appearances on the show as a panelist and fill-in co-host. This time, she’ll be on to tell us all about her latest middle-grade novel, The Explorers: The Door in the Alley, which was released in book stores last month. This is one of those stories that start with a pig in a teeny hat. It’s not the one you’re thinking about. (This story is way better than that one.) This pig-in-a-teeny-hat story starts when a very uninquisitive boy stumbles upon a very mysterious society. After that, there is danger and adventure; there are missing persons, hired thugs, a hidden box, a lost map, and famous explorers; and there is a girl looking for help that only uninquisitive boys can offer. The Explorers: The Door in the Alley is the first book in a series that is sure to hit young readers right in the funny bone.
It was a great show!
Plus for our Patreon supporters, our latest Geek Hard Extra After Credits segment discussing Adrienne’s daredevil sensibilities.
