Movie Reviews: D.A.R.Y.L + Excalibur

D.A.R.Y.L (1985)
Naff film about a couple who unwittingly adopt a robot child. ‘Small Wonder’ was better.

Excalibur (1981)
A heroic fantasy in which Uther Pendragon shags another man’s wife and conceives Arthur without bothering to take off his full plate armour. Merlin (Nicol Williamson) has epic screaming fits. Helen Mirren prances. There is lots of sex, death, adultery and legends. Various people die or go mad or live lives of quiet misery. This was overdone, camp and weird.
