Loaded For Bear

Since A&E refuses to indulge us with any new installments in the Hornblower series, fans of those movies might enjoy tuning in to BBC America every Saturday night this summer (starting May 27 at 9 p.m.) for installments of "Sharpe's Rifles." Based on novels by Bernard Cornwell, these movies will fill your Brits-in-uniform quota, although actor Sean Bean is no Ioan Gruffud when comparing Napoleonic war heros. (FYI, Bean was Boramir in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.) Here's our review from last year of the first film in the Sharpe's series. -- Amy
