The reviews I've seen of the Eagle haven't been very good, but I loved it, even though I agree with at least one reviewer who said it would have been better served by being R-rated, because "the audience for this kind of movie have all seen Rome and 300, guys."

They changed a decent amount from what I vaguely recall of the book, but I didn't really care, because the result was so delicious and full of Roman armor porn and British isle scenery porn. And Vow of Fealty/loyalty kink. spoilers and squee behind the cut )

In conclusion: Roman soldiers + ancient Briton + Vow of Fealty kink = OMGyay!
Cross your fingers that it will actually go through on the 2nd instead of dragging out for another week/month. We were originally supposed to close on the apartment February 2nd.

Also, the couple of random days on warm(er) weather we've had recently has apparently lured my parents' honey bees out of the hive, which is nicely reassuring. I was afraid the bees weren't going to make it through the winter due to all the snow.
