Elizabeth: The Golden Age

When considered a work of fantasy on the lines of Lord of the Rings or Dune, the most egregious flaws (painful, pointless distortions of history) are mooted. However, there are plenty of flaws left over. The utter lack of drama is the worst followed closely by clumsy, stupid, insipid dialogue. Sure looks nice,though. Gondor could have done with a bit more of a late Renaissance look. Props for a cameo from Dr. Dee standing in for Gandalf or the mentat.
