Alternative Trailer: The King Spits

I’ve not seen The King’s Speech, though I have heard nothing but good things about it. The trailer made me immediately think of The Madness of King George. This is, perhaps, unfair and may be due mostly to the fact that both films are about British royalty. Whatever the case, I can’t help but think that this trailer, with music by Dan Bull, would have sold the movie better, though perhaps not to its intended audience.

    Kings Speech is a dialogue film, it has no special effects. If you like acting with speaking rather than cgi its worth a see.

    A wonderful movie in many ways, I can’t say it’s entirely good. It does gloss over much of the royal families support for and ties to the Third Reich. Nor is it entirely accurate with the extent of the King’s impediment. It has a bit of historical revisionism in that sense.

    Still, I really enjoyed it and would recommend it.
