This movie is smart and just a wonderful that I had bad things to say.

I can finally see why this won the Oscar, but I still don't think it's the best movie of its release year. Still, this historic drama has moments that are both touching and humorous, and the casting is spot-on (Colin Firth is good, but Geoffrey Rush steals the show). It's a good film, for sure, just not an exceptional one.

"The King's Speech" by Yojimbo

The Duke Of York hires an unconventional speech therapist when faced with Royal duties in the burgeoning media age to help him with a stammer that prevents his public speaking. The premise behind The King's Speech is a rather dry one and the trailers themselves make it seem to be a cross between The Madness Of King George and Pygmalion, but thanks to some winning performances and an interesting script portraying a behind the scenes window onto recent history it transcends the traditional comedy of manners formula that nearly all British films seem obliged to follow. Colin Firth's portrayal of a man thrust into the public eye by events beyond his control is sublime and it's fascinating to see a snapshot of the man behind a public face completely controlled by propriety and social conventio...

The King's Speech review

Prince Albert, Duke of York/ King George V (Colin Firth), the second son of King George V has problems with speeches. Elizabeth, Duchess of York/Queen Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), helps in resolving this concern by seeking assistance from several Doctors, including Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Astounding performances from the cast really made this film effective and appealing. Rush and Firth had on-screen chemistry while Helene Bonham Carter was charismatic. The score was suitable for most of the scenes and cinematography was elegant, with memorable historic locations. Its costume and surroundings of the 1920s and 1930s were recognized and screenplay was enchanting. A line from King George If I am King, where is my power? Can I declare war? Form a government? Levy a tax?...

3.5/4

It's G-G-G-G....Great

Among the best movies of 2010, The King's Speech is a true display of artistic film making at it's finest. While the story is an admittedly old one and you occasionally feel the "Oscar-Whore" premise, it can't be denied that it is an excellent movie on its own regard. The true power of The King's Speech is in it's gorgeous set design, astonishing cinematography, and utterly flawless acting from the entire cast. Despite the seemingly boring premise, there is not a dull moment in the entire 2 hour run time. It is swiftly paced with witty touches of humor that lighten the feel of the heavily dramatic film that it can be. Kudos to Colin Firth especially for turning in the best acting performance I've seen since maybe Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will Be Blood. Every aspect of King George's...

3.5/4
