King Stinking Arthur
There have been some bad movies about King Arthur and the associated myth cycle(First Knight, Sowrd of the Valiant, the entire Gargoyles TV show) but Antoine Fuqua's King Arthur really takes the cake and drops a hot, smelly load all over it. Kiera Knightly ran around saying, "Look at me! I'm being coy!" and shooting arrows at people. Clive Owen and Stellan Skarsgaard strolled through the film like they were biding time between great scripts. Everybody just sort of showed and collected a paycheck. The only thing flimsier than the fighting was the plot.
