    This movie was okay for me. Not a favourite but it was okay. It follows a peasant that wants to be a knight, and when his master dies right before the final match he steps in and decides to pretend to be a knight. This is an okay movie but I would not watch it again. I would rate it a 5/10 simply because it become boring after an hour or so.

  3. I love this movie! It’s about a peasant, called William Thatcher, who pretends to be a knight so that he can make some money to eat and return to England. But he becomes really good, and they go all the way to the world championships. He meets a girl, called Jocelyn, but Count Adamar, who is William’s enemy, also wants her as his wife. One of my favourite character in the book is Jocelyn, because she knows what he wants, and she won’t take anything less. She loves William, but she wants to be sure that he doesn’t just like her for her looks. She is willing to run away with William when his true identity is revealed, but he refuses. My other favourite character is William, because he will doing anything for Jocelyn, as we see in the movie. He has so much pride, he would rather be lead off to the stocks and go to prison rather than run away with Jocelyn. My favourite scene is the last battle between William and Adhemar. There is so much that the director is showing us in this clip, and you can really see that difference between the two. Overall, I would give it a 9 out of 10, because it was such an amazing movie. I would definitely recommend this book to kids 10 or older. It was so much fun to watch!

  4. We watched A Knight’s Tale in English.Everyone in the class loved it. It’s about a peasant called William Thatcher who pretends to be a noble so that he could joust against other knights. William is played by Heath Ledger which is half the reason most girls love this movie. This movie is great for ages above 12(This age they would be able to understand). I would recommended to every girl to get some action of Heath Ledger in his finest moments. I rate it 10 out of 10.

  5. This is one of my most favourite movies ever! This movie really inspires you to do whatever you can to reach your goal. It is all about a guy who was born into a lower class in the Medieval time and in order to achieve his dream he must become of nobility class which he is not. HE shows determination and persistance which to me is inspiring. This movie is such an inspiring, humorous and touching movie that will really make you a laughing ballon. I love this movie and I could watch it over and over again

    I loved watching this movie! I don’t normally like medieval type movies but this has something special about it that makes me really enjoy it. I love William because he plays his part really well and I love his personality and determination. It is about a boy called William and he becomes a really good jouster. Although he is not of noble birth, he lies and pretends he is which makes the whole story of the move so interesting. It is really good that we get to watch it in English in year 8 because I really enjoyed it and would be a great movie for everyone to watch. I would rate it an 8/10!

    I loved this movie, my favourite character by far was Chaucer. He was so funny! He just had the funniest scenes. I found William slightly childish so he wasn’t someone I really felt connected to. The fact that we get to watch this movie in English actually made me love English more! The topic is so fun and enjoyable.

    I began to watch a Knight’s tale in English and I actually really enjoyed it. A medieval joust and scenery was blended into a movie with modern day twists. My favourite character was William. He is brave, courageous and determined to pursue his life long dream of making it as a knight. I love how is so passionate and fights so hard. He fought to “Change his stars” and tried his very best. He was not born into a noble family in fact he was a son of a Thatcher. He wanted to prove to other knights, nobles, the lower class but most importantly to himself that he was worthy. He wanted to show others what he could achieve and what you could accomplish when you believe hard enough. I would rate this movie an 8 and a 1/2 out of 10.

  9. We watched A Knight’s Tale in English. It turned out to be a really good movie! Everyone in the class loved it, and didn’t want to stop watching it when the bell went at the end of the period. It’s about a peasant called William Thatcher who pretends to be a noble so that he could joust against other knights. William is played by Heath Ledger which is half the reason most girls love this movie. Along with his friends Wat and Roland, they set off to compete in jousting tournaments. Along the way they meet Geoffrey Chaucer, who helps them get into the tournament and becomes their friend. Will is my favourite character because he’s so kind and selfless and brave, and I also like Wat because he’s really funny. The movie has a lot of humour. Will falls in love with the beautiful Lady Jocelyn, and when he first sees her it’s funny because he’s trying to get her to tell him her name but she won’t. He even rides his horse into the church to follow her.

    My favourite part is when Will finds his father, who he hasn’t seen since he was a child. His father was now blind but it was great because it was really emotional and his father was so so happy to see him. He was also very proud. The message of the film was that ‘a man can change his stars’. This is what Will did, because at the end he ends up getting knighted by the prince.

    I recommend this movie for boys or girls aged 11 or 12+ because some parts could be hard to understand. I rate it 8/10.

    I loved watching A Knight’s Tale, I watched it in English for school and I fell in love with it. The movie is about medieval times but set in sort of a modern way. This story is about a lowly squire named William (Heath Ledger) who believes that persistence and determination help him change his stars. This movie is so funny, I love the way they incorporate modern things like the nike symbol on his armour and them clapping at the start to the beat of “We will Rock You.” I would rate this an 8.5 out of 10 because I loved it. I would recommend this to anyone 12 and up because otherwise it would be a bit tricky to understand.

    I love this movie! It’s really fun and interesting to learn about that era, I also like how they incorporate modern things into it. For example, the crowd clapping to we will rock you, and the blacksmith’s trade mark being very similar to the nike symbol. My favourite character is definatly William Thatcher, because for one he is Heath Ledger, and he is also brave, slightly insecure, loyal, smart and very talented. My favourite scene is when they are writeing the letter to Joselyn, because it’s really sweet how they all pull together, and share their own stories and they are all very good at saying romantic things. I would recommend this for boys and girls ages eleven and up because it’s a little too complex for anyone younger to fully understand. I rate it an 8/10 because it full of passion, and bravery.

  12. If it wasn’t for English Class, I probably never would of watched this movie. I love how William goes against his society and breaks all the rules. He completely turns his life around and takes a turn for the better. I really admire his character for having the courage to do what it takes and fight for what he believes in. I rate this movie 10/10 but the last two marks are only because Will is hot. 😉

    I loved this movie, it was great their were so many sub plots but it still stayed focused on the main part. My favourite part was when William fought, the noble when you shouldn’t.
    My favourite character was William because he was good looking 😉 but brave, courageous and strong. I can’t really relate to anyone in this movie because it was back in the Medieval times. I would not change one thing in this book it is great, exciting and nerve racking. My least favourite part was when we found out that Williams father is blind it was so sad.
    I would totally recommend this to everyone because it is so exciting and thrilling and leaves you on the edge of your seat with a tissue in your hand.
    I would recommend this to anyone but mainly teenagers because they would understand it more. I rate it a 10/10

  14. This movie is really great. it is scary, sad, interesting and also romantic. It has a really good storyline, it is very unique. Heath Ledger plays William really well and details the role of fighting enemies and overcoming obstacles in your lifetime. The storyline is really strong and has a good meaning. Through out all the challenges William’s positive attitude towards his goal, encourage his friends to go beyond the boundaries of society. i recommend this movie for others as it is quite enjoyable.

    I think that this is one of the best movies I have ever had to watch in class. Lots of girls out there watch it mainly for Heath Ledger but I think it is so much more than that. My favourite part is when William (Heath Ledger) is training to become a knight and he falls into the river, and for all the fanatics of medieval romance there was a bit of that in the movie. Oddly enough I thought the bad guy was the best part of the film and I loved how he put such a major twist on everything. Over all it’s a really good movie and although the end in a little Hollywood I would still give this movie at least a 7 out of ten.

  16. I recommend the movie ‘A knight’s Tale’. It is the best movie I’ve watched for school. I liked this movie because it was funny. Heath Ledger is great at his role of William. The movie was set in medieval England so I learnt a fair bit historically about it and it was still very enjoyable. When my class watched it we loved it. It was annoying to have to stop it at the end of the lesson, not knowing what was going to happen next. The movie gets you rapt up and it is definitely not boring. It teaches you that no matter who you are, you can be anyone you want to be. Anyone can change their stars if they really want to. My favourite parts are when the knights are jousting on horseback because there’s a lot of tension and you want to know who’s going to win the fight. My least favourite part was when William had fruit/ tomatoes/bananas thrown at him but then again, that was still pretty funny. That could even then go to my favourite part because I found the whole movie enjoyable.
    I’d recommend this movie for everyone. It’d be a great family movie.

  17. I recommend the film ‘ A knights tale’ It is a great film depicted the pas. I really enjoyed this movie and so will you! It gets you off your feat and worried about the characters. It is fantastic film that gives you a history lesson also. My favourite part of the movie was when The characters were jousting and fighting together. My least favourite part of the movie was when the characters got hurt while jousting it was quite scary.
    I would defiantly recommend it to any ages, probably 10 +. I would rate it a 7 out of 10. Any type of person would love this movie.

  18. We had to watch the movie for English but I don’t regret it. This movie is great and puts a twist on medieval times. My favourite character is Wat because he is really funny and supports William. My favourite part of the movie was when William found his father, John Thatcher because it is a really emotional scene and the directors were very clever on how the portrayed the section of the film. I absolutely hate Count Adhemar because he comes off as arrogant and only wants Jocelyn because she is beautiful and not for her qualities. My least favourite part is when Count Adhemar stabs William with his sharp Lance 😦 I would recommend this book to 11+ and rate it a 8.5/10!

    A knight’s tale is a great movie i really enjoyed it, i really like how William never gave up on things. William was very strong and he was very brave, i love how him and Joyclyn got on really well together at the ending. I loved the bit where William went to see his father and helped him with the leakage in his roof. This movie is so good when you watch it it’s worth watching because it’s just got a spark about it how good the actors act it out in that movie i love it and it’s just good how it was a great happy ending i rate it probably 9 out of 10.

    In A Knight’s Tale, written by Brian Helgeland shows how much the your class meant back in the 14th century. The poor treated with no rights, Most people had to work day and night food on the table. While the nobles had servants and lived in luxury. Most people accepted the class that they were born into. William stood out in this society. He questioned the order. He believed a man could changes his stars. He took any opportunity to become the person inside him, with the support of his friends. He dreamed of one day becoming a knight. He achieves his dream when Sir Ector dies during a jousting tournament and he replaced him and then decided to have a fake identity and to continue his dream. He needs to over come his birth place in society. With persistence and courage William and friends shows he can achieve anything is possible when you put your mind to it. Through out all the challenges William’s positive attitude towards his goal, encourage his friends to go beyond the boundaries of society. William finally wins the heart of Lady Jocelyn and was knighted by Prince Edward who respected him. This movie was amazing I loved watching every second. I would rate this movie 10 out of 10!!!! 🙂

    A knights tale was awesome!
    We watched this film during English at shc and by writing an essay on it you realise the importance of actually understanding a film. We learnt alot about the persistence and determination that main character William used to fight his obstacles and face enemies such as Adhemar. It really was a great movie and I would definitely watch it again. I loved the way they used such an old style setting but made it more modern.
    9/10 🙂

    I loved this movie. What a fantastic story of how someone can ‘change their stars’. William, the main character, shows that anything really is possible through a little bit of hard work and persistence. I really do believe now that I can achieve anything I want to. Set in the medieval times with a little bit of modern day pop, A Knight’s Tale, is a great movie for all ages, that shows how tough it was for the peasants of that time. I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves to learn about the medieval time, or who is just looking for a great movie. 🙂

    This movie was excellent. Medieval style with little pops of pop culture at practically every turn. And such a contrast between the good and evil characters. I it fascinating how much William and Count Adhemar differ in both looks and disposition.
    And to think that that man played the maniacal joker. Couldn’t get this image out of my head of William saying to Count Adhemar ‘Why so serious?’.
    Not the best thing to be concentrating on when you’re watching this in English. 🙂

I also really really love Will because he is really hot and smart and he is the main character. Chaucer is really funny when he is first introduced to the move because he is naked. I just find him really really funny as well. The only part that i don’t understand is the start but then i sorta get it after a while. I would definitely recommend this to people.

We have to watch it in year 8 and at first I really had no idea what the teachers and all my friends were going on about because they all thought it was really good. It was not till towards the end that I really started to get into it. Heath Ledger is just luscious as always!! This film will just really open up how you imagine the 14th century and what the people wear and how they dance and talk. I would rate this movie a 9/10 and I would advise that the age of watching would be from 11- endless just that you see a mans bear but!! lol

  34. The Knights Tale is set in the 14th Century and is about a man named William who is a peasant and pretends to be a Knight to win money in a competition. It is very action-packed and adventurous. There is a mix between modern and medieval times. I personally do not enjoy movies about Knights and medieval times but this wasn’t bad. It had a very interesting story line that kept on getting better. My favourite character was Adhemear, i loved that he was so evil and the way that he walked around thinking he was better than everyone else, I don’t like people like that but, the actor did a really good job of portraying that aspects of the character. I would recommend this movie to any one who enjoys lots of action, 8.5/10

    I recommend this movie to everyone who loves history. The thing i love about it is it is based on a true story, but it is still so amazingly awesome! It is based on a boy named William, william is a peasant and he pretends to be a knight to win money in a competition. My favourite character is Jocelyn and i love her unique style, and even though she is rich, she is still loving and caring and generous to the people that need it most. I wont tell you anymore but the dramas and battles he faces, makes the movie ultra awesome! My favourite part is at the end when everything is all happy and the peasants get back at the really evil men guy. And they all live happily ever after….. This movie is a 10/10 and i reccomend it to anyone over the age of 11. I love it and i hope you will all love it as well.

    i love A Knight’s Tale. I had to watch it for school and immediately fell in love with it. i love how the producer made a movie about the medieval times, but put it into a more modern way. This story shows the persistance and determination of William (Heath Ledger) that he change his stars if he believed in it. My favourite character would have to be Chaucer as about near the quarter of the way through, William and his gang confronts him naked as he was gambling and lost everything. i also liked how the way he talks, but none of the audience can understand him. i really thought that this movie was going to be like a documentary, but instead it was a comedy with romance, family and friends. it also shows that it doesn’t matter what class you are, its how you treat others that counts. i recommend this movie to people 11 and above. Great comedy movie to watch 🙂

    I really enjoyed this movie!!!It was based in the medieval times and were jousting. I really loved the story line as it wasn’t just a boring old documentary type but instead had a bit of adventure which spiced it up a bit. As Heath Ledger played a great main part as william who has to joust so that him and his mates can basically survive as they have no money. William gets a bit side tracked as he falls in love with Jocelyn played by Shannyn Sossamon
    who in the movie is a rich person. My favourite part is when they test if kate” armor is ok to were when he joust as they ram a giant piece of wood at william it’s so funny. I would rate it a 10/10 and recommend it for 11+

    I have just watched A Knights Tale and think it is a fantastic movie.
    This movie is cross between a modern and medieval theme and had a very specific storyline about a lower class man called William who pretends to be a knight and wins a series of jousting tournaments in order to change his stars and create a better life for himself.
    My favourite part in the movie is at the start when William (main character) decides that he will take over for the knight he was working for, as his boss/master has died and also the part where Will is at the cross roads with Roland and Wat (other characters in the film) and decides to use all their winnings on entering the next jousting competition. These is probably my favourite parts because Will shows that he is willing to change his stars, start again and create a better life for himself as a different person.
    I would recommend this movie to people around the ages 12+ because it is a great watch and there are many different scenarios that are included into the story line such as romance, rivalry and changing ones stars and could become a little confusing in some parts if you are not really paying attention.
