Movie of the Week: The Secret of Kells.

I saw The Secret of Kells a couple of weeks ago, over at my mom’s. She absolutely insisted that it was worth my time, and it was; my only quibble is that the message of ‘the only way to deal with a Viking horde is to run away’ would come as a bit of a surprise to, say, Brian Boru*.

And so, farewell to Trainspotting. Which was a very good, yet very messed up, film.

*Unless, of course, you believe the scurrilous arguments to the contrary – ones made no doubt a vicious cabal of English and Scandinavian spalpeens jealous of Boru and his way of killing any random screaming Viking that himself happened to see hove into view – but I’m sure that none of you would be along of shaming yourself by repeating such obvious lies.

    Moe, I highly suggest you check out Ark and Kaena: The Prophecy if you have not seen them already.

  • Brian Swisher says:

    Yeah, Catseye, but Brian and eldest son Murchad were both killed there, ushering in a whole new period of instability for Ireland…
    In other words, the situation reverted to the normal state…

    The artwork was very nice in this movie. It was my favorite non-Miyazaki animated film in quite a while. It’s almost on a level with “Howl’s Moving Castle” and “Spirited Away” maybe a little better than “Ponyo”.
