#36. Robin Hood (Part 4 of LPT) - Review

Robin Hood 2010

So I wrote about 850 words on Ridley Scott's horrible 2010 adventure film Robin Hood and when I tried to post it, my Safari quit and I lost everything. I had awesome Bryan Adams and Kevin Kostner references, made the blanket statement that Ridley Scott done considering the fact he hasn't made a good film in almost a decade (Black Hawk Down) and hasn't made a great film in close to 30 years (Blade Runner). I also discussed the superior Disney cartoon adaptation, and how Robin Hood isn't Robin Hood unless he is introduced by a lute strumming rooster. 

Disney's Robin Hood

Oh well, what can you do? I'll tell you what you should't do and that is watch this film. It is boring and terribly acted, the musical score is hackneyed, and we all know the famous Englishman that is Robin Hood should be played by a fox, not an Australian.

So true! I was very dissappointed, and I totally see why it bombed. How can you start the story of Robin Hood with an old Gladiator and simplistic fight scenes???

The Disney cartoon truly is genius when you think about it. I'm so effing sick of Russell Crowe - I won't see this simply because he is in it.

Man, I just had a crazy McGuire flashback with both Cory and Beth talkin' movies with me!
Cory- Not even boring fight sequences... basically non-existing... all they did was talk!
Beth- Yeah, I never thought I would say it after Master & Commander, but I am getting tired of ol' Crowe too. I think he needs to take a lesson from Clive Owen... but it should also be said that Owen too has been a little shitty in the past few years
