This week's reviewed movie is:
Elizabeth: The Golden Age

Elizabeth: The Golden Age has no shortage of historical drama -- plus a romantic soap opera all rolled up into one.

It moves along at a pretty fast pace, giving you a loose history lesson as you go.

I found all the gowns worn by the queen and ladies in waiting were really eye-catching, even a silver suit of armor.

Although the acting was very good, Cate Blanchett commands the screen, and can make a so-so film worth watching.

Cate Blanchett reigns supreme in this sumptuous sequel of sorts.

Again she plays the Virgin Queen to Geoffrey Rush's Walsingham as he advises her about possible assassination, the Spanish Fleet, and long overdue marriage.

Rich in costume and brilliant cinematography, it is a beautiful portrait of history for modern times.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age is a continuation of the 16th-century celebrated historical story that began in the 1998 feature film.

This sequel deals with the intrigue of Elizabeth's court.

Cate Blanchett stars again, and takes over where she left off about ten years ago.

I was impressed with the visual splendor of the costumes and set designs and the whole dazzling production, along with secret romance and some action at sea.
