10 years of Flick Filosopher: my view from the crow’s nest not so good

My predictions about who’s gonna be a star and who isn’t aren’t always right, as my review of the made-for-cable flick Horatio Hornblower: The Duel makes plain:

Prediction: Ioan Gruffudd is gonna be a huge star. Tall and pretty — with his big brown eyes, pouty mouth, and dark curls — he’s kinda like a hero in a Pre-Raphelite painting. And he’s got a lovely Welsh accent. Oh, and he can act, too. The only potential snag in a meteoric rise to ubiquitousness is his name — one news article I read insists he pronounces it “yo-IN,” but another says it’s “Ian.” Then again, we’ve all learned to deal with Ralph Fiennes.

Poor Ioan…
