3x3: best kings and queens in movies

But was he the Daimyo and not a militaristic Emperor? Since Ran is a reskinned version of King Lear, can’t he be a ruler in some kind of pre-imperial Japan that just happens to have muskets?

I really liked El Cid when I saw it back in high school. Doesn’t he wind up as being a sort of king, at least a king of a little city-state or something?

Enough playing by the rules!

  1. Robert De Niro as Rupert Pupkin, The King of Comedy. Remember when he could act?

  2. Forest Whitaker as Idi Amin, The Last King Of Scotland. Scary shit.

  3. Bruce Campbell as the King, in Bubba Ho-Tep. Groovy.

I presume that Helen Mirren was mentioned in the podcast, because it’s inconceivable that at post #23 no one has brought her up, right? It’s the frickkin’ title of the movie.

Hahaha that’s a great call on Coming to America, Djscman.
