Subtitle King Arthur
Because the English version is quite difficult to find, I had an Italian version found online, so I decided to make English subtitles for the episodes.Just be aware that this is an English translation of an Italian (official) dubbing, so the meaning of some dialogues might have been changed in the two translations. Italian television (especially back then) applied some censorship, and changed some dialogues and names.
subtitle King Arthur
To watch the anime with the subtitles, you just need to put both of them in the same folder. As long as both the subtitle file and the video episode have the same name, vlc will be able to automatically apply the subtitles.
I did my best, but I also did not have a lot of time to double check my subtitles, or to focus too much on elaborate translations. I also know I left around some minor mistakes (sometimes I write King with the capital K, sometimes without etc.).
Regarding the names, Italian translations change many of the arthurian and original names, so I used known arthurian names when I could and otherwise I simply used the name I could hear in the dialogue (and sometimes just the first letter of the name, for example if a character says Astrid and I am not sure of the name they said I write A.).
Regarding names, these are the original arthurian names of the main characters:Arthur, Guinevere, Kay, Ector, Tristan, Lancelot, Uther, Galahad, Ban, Percival, Gareth, Leodegrance, Merlin, Igraine
Reviewed by: Reinventing King Arthur: The Arthurian Legends in Victorian Culture Linda K. Hughes (bio) Reinventing King Arthur: The Arthurian Legends in Victorian Culture, by Inga Bryden; pp. x + 171. Aldershot and Burlington: Ashgate, 2005, 42.50, $79.95. As the subtitle of Reinventing King Arthur indicates, Inga Bryden examines the dissemination and role of Arthurian legend in Victorian culture. Abjuring any claims to exhaustive detail, Bryden seeks instead to demonstrate how the legend became a flexible cultural vocabulary for articulating a range of cultural agendas, anxieties, and interests. She foregrounds a "poststructuralist model of intertextuality" (5), but her work is also informed by cultural studies, juxtaposing literary, popular, and professional texts to map the diverse ideologies and sociocultural politics that Arthurian legend could serve. In recent years the Arthurian revival has most often been linked to imperialism and national identity. Those concerns figure in Bryden's study as well, but she discloses a revival that is far more dialogic and far less monolithic than attempts to consolidate state power. D. G. Rossetti, William Morris, and A. C. Swinburne, for example, used Arthurian legend to challenge prevailing attitudes toward gender, morality, and social duty. Bryden also shows that Arthurian legend could be used to break up as well as consolidate national identity, since The Poetry of Wales (1873), by John Jenkins, stressed a specifically Welsh historical legacy. She likewise suggests that Dinah Mulock Craik's "Avillion, or, The Happy Isles: A Fireside Story" (1853), inspired by Alfred Tennyson's "Morte d'Arthur" (1842), critiques both Victorian burial rituals and assumptions about progress. Sometimes a single Arthurian work exhibited dialogism internally. If Edward Bulwer-Lytton unquestionably asserted the racial superiority of northern Europeans in his epic poem of 1848, King Arthur, he did not (as writers later in the century did) suppress Arthur's Celtic origins. Rather, Bryden argues, he posited an evolutionary, progressive development that led from multiple racial sources to Englishness and emphasized the harmonizing of Celt and Saxon.
A duo well known in France for their creation of two characters as endearing as they are zany, Shirley and Dino, stage the opera masterpiece in five acts by the great Baroque composer Henry Purcell (1659-1695), King Arthur, or the British Worthy. The alternation of dialogue and musical scenes, according to the principle of English semi-opera, allows our directors to offer a show full of humour accessible to all without taking anything away from the original work. King Arthur is without a doubt a show for everyone now performing in the beautiful Royal Opera House of Versailles.
Arthur, king of the Bretons, and Oswald, Saxon king of Kent, are both vying for Emmeline's hand. After a defeat against the Bretons, Oswald decides to kidnap Emmeline in an attempt to win her love. King Arthur, with Merlin the famous enchanter by his side, then goes to war to rescue his beloved. The principal actors with spoken characters, King Arthur, Merlin, Osmond, Aurelius, Albanact, Emmeline, and Matilda, and the secondary actors with sung characters, Cupid, Philidel, Elle, and Nereid plunge us into a pearl of an English baroque opera, King Arthur. With incredible scenes and tunes, this semi-opera will take you into the world of battles and the supernatural. Notably, you will recognize the famous Cold Song very easily thanks to its famous tremolos and strong melody lines. Let yourself be drawn into King Arthur's quest to find his blind fiancée!
This guide covers the basics of sourdough baking. In Understand, we explore the simple science of sourdough. Create teaches you how to make your own starter. In Bake, we put your starter to work with one of our favorite sourdough bread recipes. Then Maintain covers how to keep your starter alive and healthy, so you can bake with it again and again.
When flour is mixed with liquid, the friendly bacteria (lactobacilli) and wild yeast in both the flour and your surrounding environment start working together. Within their flour-and-water slurry (now called starter), these tiny living creatures generate byproducts that cause bread to rise and give it complex, rich flavor.
Grape juice, wine, beer, and wheat flour porridge (left to go sour) were leavening regulars in the ancient world. As early as 4,000 BC, Egyptian writings mention making bread with these "sours." Legend has it that a crock of starter made its way to the New World in the hold of Columbus' ship; and by the mid-19th century, starters were vital to both American prospectors and pioneers.
Upon sitting down to watch this movie on Blu-ray, I was excited to see its picturesque visuals in high definition. The standard DVD edition was a mess of macroblocking and washed out colors that didn't do the theatrical print justice. Presented in 1080p with the AVC MPEG-4 codec, this Blu-ray edition of 'King Arthur' fixes the issues evident in the previous standard-def release, but adds a host of problems all its own.
The "Cast and Filmmaker Roundtable" (15 minutes) is similarly lacking in content, but at least when the actors and the director talk with each other, the supplement comes alive. Funny, engaging, and genuinely enjoying each other's company, Owen, Knightley, Gruffudd, and Fuqua are a joy to watch. A commentary track with these four would've been a lifesaver for the supplemental package.
A making-of featurette called "Blood on the Land: Forging King Arthur" is a seventeen minute bore that doesn't reveal any spark behind the scenes. It does seem to confirm that there was very little passion or personal investment in the film's creation, and that the personalities of the actors and the director were the only thing keeping folks happy behind the camera.
Conquests of Camelot: The Search for the Grail (ingame subtitle is King Arthur: The Search for the Grail) is a graphic adventure game released in 1989 by Sierra. It was the first game in the Conquests series designed by Christy Marx and her husband Peter Ledger. The only other game in the series was 1992's Conquests of the Longbow: The Legend of Robin Hood. Marx did the design work and writing on both games while Ledger created the game and package art for Camelot.
Scoring was based on three kinds of points: Skill (when the player performs deeds that help him in his quest, or defeats enemies), Wisdom (when examining things, talking to others, or gaining hints) and Soul (performing good deeds to help others). The options provided a difficulty setting for the arcade sequences, but with lower points. The game featured a soundtrack of authentic-sounding medieval music composed by Mark Seibert.
The game begins at the decline of Camelot because of the love triangle between King Arthur, Gwenhyver and Launcelot. This 'curse' brought famine and drought in the kingdom. After having a vision of the Holy Grail covered by a silver cloth, Gawaine, Launcelot and Galahad departed on a quest for the Holy Grail. However, they did not return. The player controls Arthur in his search for the missing knights and the Grail.
The game was marked by immense amount of historic knowledge and folklore that is woven between the dialogues and the descriptions as the plot unfolds. The message boxes (narration) are the wizard Merlin speaking and counseling the player.
The plot involves Rome's desire to defend its English colony against the invading Saxons, and its decision to back the local Woads in their long struggle against the barbarians. But Rome, declining and falling right on schedule, is losing its territorial ambitions and beginning to withdraw from the far corners of its empire. That leaves Arthur risking his neck without much support from the folks at home, and perhaps he will cast his lot with England. In the traditional legends he became king at 15, and went on to conquer Scotland, Ireland, Iceland -- and Orkney, which was flattered to find itself in such company.
Obviously the most striking juxtaposition between these two King Arthurs is exactly what they attempted to do in the pop culture landscape of their release, and perhaps just why that topography sloped the way it did.
This is the real pronounced difference as big budget moviemaking tastes change. Released with nary a subtitle or a post-credit scene, the previous King Arthur opened under the assumed wisdom of a century of storytelling that films need to be self-contained narratives. Plot threads may not be completely and neatly concluded, but for the most part there will be resolution. In the case of this film, Arthur and his knights defeat the Anglo-Saxons and pretend that the Britons were never wiped out by Saxons in the decades to come, and that an age of wisdom and reason elevated England during the dawn of the Dark Ages. Arthur and Guinevere are married, Lancelot and Tristan (a woefully underused Mads Mikkelsen) are buried, and the villainous and bored-out-of-his-mind Stellan Skarsgaard is beheaded. 041b061a72
