There is a lot to look at in “The Secret of Kells.” Nearly every frame of this 75-minute animated feature is dense with curlicued and cross-hatched patterns and figures. Your eye travels over Celtic crosses and through forest glades, studies architectural schematics and drinks in delicately washed landscapes. The human characters come in a variety of shapes and hues. Some are cute, some are sinister, some angular, some roly-poly. A few resemble science-fiction robots, while others look like pixies out of Japanese anime.

I think I’m a bit numb about the possible new version of Excalibur. I love the Arthurian Legend – and I like retellings of it. But, I loved John Boorman’s movie, and make no secret of loving BBC’s Merlin. I don’t know if I could take another retelling. And, in a Star Wars tone? What does that mean?  Of course this is all just speculation at the moment, and it is Guy Ritchie. What do you all think?

‘The secret of Kells” looks really awesome. Has any one seen it, or going to?
