In the Netherlands, Tonke Dragt’s 1962 novel The Letter for the King is a beloved classic of fantasy literature, along the lines of The Lord But it was only released in English in the United States in recent years, meaning that Netflix’s new six-part TV adaptation (produced in English) is largely aimed at an

In Netflix's YA fantasy action-adventure series The Letter for the King, our young hero Tiuri may not be the mightiest or wiliest squire, but he's got courage. And integrity. And honor. Boy, is he chock-full of honor! You know who else had honor? Poor, headless Ned Stark.

Game of Thrones quite possibly ruined me forever for stories about scrappy little string beans whose heart and brains win against evil forces. After hungrily gobbling up the vast, intricate political intrigue of Westeros, where naive boys die for mere principle while ruthless survivors plunder war-torn states, I have no appetite for yet another formulaic medieval fantasy predicated on moral Chiaroscuro. Sixteen-year-old Tiuri (Amir Wilson), like Biblical David before him or even the Valiant Little Tailor must find his inner virtue to defeat a brutal foe. In this case, a nefarious princeling hellbent on conquering his own father's kingdom. Don't get too lost in the incomprehensible muck of lost magic, ancient prophecies and Chosen One mythos.

BMW M8 Competition vs 825bhp Ford Mustang review: Europe v USA showdown

  BMW M8 Competition vs 825bhp Ford Mustang review: Europe v USA showdown Unlikely high-end rivals from the USA and Germany meet on our handling circuit. Which delivers greater driving thrills?But here it faces very silly competition, in the form of the Ford Mustang CS800, from UK tuner Sutton Bespoke. With a huge supercharger on its 5.0 V8 engine it makes as much as 825bhp and will get from 0-60mph in, we estimate, around 4.0 seconds and on to a top speed of around 180mph. It costs from £63,000 but here it costs £105,000 as tested, which puts it on a natural par with the BMW.

Seemingly more inspired by Tonke Dragt's 1962 Dutch novel De brief voor de Koning than directly adapted from it, Letter for the King maintains the basic conceit of its source material, which follows a young boy tasked with delivering a vital message to save his homeland. (A previous film adaptation was released in the Netherlands in 2008.) Despite showrunner Will Davies' best efforts to electrify the stakes with contemporary high-fantasy clichés ranging from sassy maidens to Shamanistic bloodlines, the story remains downright quaint and the climax laughably limp. (The producing team leaves few storytelling tropes behind, including "bury your gays.")

Well, “There’s a darkness coming. A darkness that will take everything.” Good to know. Frankly, Letter for the King is everything The Magicians has destroyed in five seasons of satirizing classic fantasy and the moody grown-ups still obsessed with it. 

Beauty Laid Bare, BBC1, review: an investigative film with teeth

  Beauty Laid Bare, BBC1, review: an investigative film with teeth Four British 20-somethings visited the US to investigate the inner workings of the beauty industry . Perhaps unsurprisingly, they discovered a hotbed of greed and exploitation.Their first stop was the Beautycon exhibition in Los Angeles, a gathering of 30,000 “beauty fans” and online “influencers”. The latter included Kenneth Senegal, who can earn $14,000 by mentioning a cosmetic product in one of his videos.

Tiuri is one of many eager young pups competing to become knights in the kingdom of Dagonaut. He's a social outcast, an introverted refugee from a genocide that ravaged his exoticized tribal kingdom, and is frequently referred to as "Eviellan scum." His adoptive nobleman father (David Wenham) has such little confidence in the boy, despite his love for him, that he rigs the combat trials for knighthood so that Tiuri can join his fellow squires in a ritualistic nocturnal vigil that will commence their training. During this vigil, the boy is the only one of his cohort to answer a plea for help from a dying rider who is desperate to deliver a letter to the king of Unauwen, a neighboring land. Immediately, Tiuri becomes a target in a stagnant six-episode game of "kill the messenger."

Tiuri bops from helper to faux and back again on this horseback ride to King Favian, all the while evading various groups of bunglers, including his own cohort of indistinguishable teen squires, who are each trying to capture or kill him. Tiuri does not know the contents of the letter, as it's locked inside a booby-trapped cryptex, but the audience is privy to the coup plot from the opening moments of the series. It took me about three episodes to realize there is no twist or mystery in the message he's safeguarding, which killed all semblance of narrative tension. It's mere McGuffin.

Film Review : The King ’s Letters (2019) by Cho Chul-hyun 12 December 2019 | AsianMoviePulse. All of the films and TV series I have ever wached. A historical film about King Sejong who risked everything of his to invent the Hunminjungeum (Korean Script) for his people and the people who

Along the way, he reluctantly befriends a conveniently pretty trickster named Lavinia (Ruby Ashbourne Serkis, Andy's daughter), nearly gets eviscerated by a power-hungry sorcerer and gains some self-esteem with the help of a sword-fighting monk. Still, Tiuri doesn't seem to actually do a lot, but rather, a lot of stuff is just done to him.

The Letter For A King is loosely based on a book © Netflix The Letter For A King is loosely based on a book While he's busy plodding along Joseph Campbell's monomyth template, we spend a lot of time with megalomaniacal Prince Viridian (Gijs Blom), the equivalent a high school trench coat guy rebelling against his square dad, and Tiuri's bumbling fellow squires, a group of kids with minimal character development other than "the one with the lute" and the "one with the hair." (Wait, never mind, these are actually the same dude.) There's a near dearth of chemistry or camaraderie between any of them.

Frustratingly, just Iona, the only girl in the unit, has any notable characterization. Because she's a standard Cool Girl archetype, she's also the smartest, toughest and shrewdest of all the boys. (Truly, I would trade all the Ionas of fiction for more female characters who are allowed to be as unspecial as Tiuri.) Young Thaddea Graham brings satisfying swagger to the role, her waspish native Northern Irish brogue a welcome break from everyone else's adolescent bleating.

Google, Apple, Amazon and others sign open letter opposing anti-LGBTQ legislation

  Google, Apple, Amazon and others sign open letter opposing anti-LGBTQ legislation In a letter, tech companies express concern about legislation that could target the LGBTQ community."We are deeply concerned by the bills being introduced in state houses across the country that single out LGBTQ individuals - many specifically targeting transgender youth - for exclusion or differential treatment," the letter, which was done in partnership with the Human Rights Campaign and the Freedom for All Americans Education Fund reads.

Unfortunately, while Graham gets to have all the fun, Wilson must remain in "forlorn" mode for most of the season. (The 22-year-old actor is making a name for himself in the fantasy and classic tale genres, starring in The Kid Who Would Be King, HBO's His Dark Materials and in the upcoming The Secret Garden adaptation.) Wilson exudes vulnerability, his youthful eyes (and curlicued eyelashes) rendering Tiuri believably post-pubescent.

Lacking urgency and visual splendor, The Letter for the King attempts a high-speed gallop, but ends up flopping on its belly and rolling around a little. Your family is better off delving into Netflix's The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, a much more thrilling Baby's First Game of Thrones.
