:roll: Well now I am punished! I love that website called YouTube where folks like us run their really neat little original videos out of images like Chars or from real film. It is fun and there are lots of nice things showing JI. So being a big-mouth, I love to comment and got a question which asked "You being an American woman, how do you justify liking a British enemy Colonel of such a bad reputation?" I am not sure he was kidding or serious, I took it seriously and said it was Jason I really liked, and was admiring my favorite actor in a merely fictional role, because no real British officer during the revolution would ever have considered burning a church full of women and children! Looking back, I wonder why I bothered, but it was a German teenager asking. But every once in awhile I have to remember "fiction" "acting" "for fun" and all that stuff. Lecturing again.

Of course there's the hotness factor, naturally, but then I began to love the character simply out of spite. I'm American and even I don't appreciate the completely slanted take on the English in that movie. I've studied American History in college and the way they portrayed the English is offensive to anyone with half a brain! :roll:

:mrgreen: I think one should not try to learn any history including American from a fictional piece! But on the other hand, Tavington is a well-written character with whom we can sympathize, because his father lost all of the family fortune, which as oldest son William would have inherited all. Now he must work hard at being the best soldier he can be for a snobby overlord who is in with royalty (the fact that the real general was one of the best of English soldiers does not matter here) and all that blood and stuff does no good if he does not control himself! Very nice piece of characterization, and lovely casting, good directing of Jason. Though we may find poor old Mel a bit off-putting! Sorry! Preaching again! I love Jason as Tavington!

I'm addicted to youtube as well...and one of those hot Tavington vids is partly responsible for why I'm here.

Villains by-and-large are always more interesting than their counterparts. I've always been much more drawn to them, and usually the more heinous they are, the more I like them...Col. Tavington is no exception.

The cool thing is...he's almost purely evil...but they do give us an opportunity to have a hint of pity for him too. I always feel kinda bad for the guy when Cornwallis is reaming him out. It seems that everyone hates him, they all sorta roll their eyes when he walks in, etc. But I really think HE thinks what he's doing is right. He's dedicated! You gotta give him that!

He's the best part of the movie, hands down. It would have been a big ol' *yawn* without him.

AMAZING pics! how could I miss that? The Patriot is still one of my favourite movies ever. Seeing Jason acting as Colonel Tavington...the way he plays his role, fantastic, well, it leaves me without words. He really knows how to incorporate a character, I still think of William Tavington everytime I look at Jason's face. lol

Char's great portraits!

:bat Naighty, naughty artist lady, presenting us our fetishes so clearly! What a great jog, Char. Thanks! But that nasty snarling one makes me think of werewolves, and oh, Char, wouldn't the Col. make a lovely werewolf, bursting out of that uniform, howling at the southern moon! I better get away, before someone throws too much wolfbane on me.

Col. Tavington as a werewolf, hmmm. :oops:

He is amazing just the way he is, I think I am in love with colonel Tav. (I wonder what Jason will think if he reads this, he will probably think that I am a little insane).

I love that site. It's great fun and written from such a wonderfully refreshing perspective. I've read it several times now and it never fails to entertain.

Definitely worth a bookmark.
