The Eagle is lolarious! And wonderful, in a very lolarious fashion! Ugh, now I want to rewatch it.

God, I love this movie, I even made my kids in the book club read the book so I'd have a reason to show them clips. :D

Yei! I did a fic rec post for it a while back, if you're interested in fic for it. There's not a ton but a lot of it is great.

Man, my teenagers were all OMG THIS LANGUAGE IS SO WEIRD WE DON'T WANT TO READ THIS WHYYYYYYY and I was like "Shut up and read it, so we can spend an hour looking at Jaime Bell and Channing Tatum, brats!" They were not amused with me at all. <3

Yeah, I agree, the movie really buries the lede because it's not interesting until Esca shows up. I love that scene in the arena. I do like Marcus, though, a lot, I think he's this very interesting mix of strength and vulnerability that appeals to me. He feels so much and is really open about it. I enjoy the character greatly...but it's not still not interesting until Esca shows up. ;)

Here is that post, I hope it's helpful:
