Colin Farrell Lands in Virginia

Today being the four hundred and fourth anniversary of the English arrival in the Chesapeake Bay just prior to the founding of Jamestown, I thought I’d hearken back to Terrence Malick’s The New World (2005), starring Colin Farrell as John Smith and what’s-her-name as Pocahontas.
The movie is both gorgeous and utterly ridiculous, with increasingly generous portions of the latter as the film goes on … and on. But c’mon. This opening scene is pretty cool.
