Robin Hood Returns! No Bryan Adams.

The soon-to-be 10 year old movie “Gladiator” is pretty awesome. So, when I found out a couple of months ago, that Russell Crowe had re-teamed with Ridley Scott to update the story of Sir Robin and his Sherwood Forest followers, I was ecstatic.

I was first acquainted with the legend of the outlawed gifted archer who steals from the rich and gives to the poor, through a couple of anthropomorphic animals in Disney’s animated “Robin Hood.” I was about 4 years old. Growing up, my father introduced me to Errol Flynn’s “The Adventures of Robin Hood”, which today is one of my all-time favorite movies and I can’t watch my DVD copy enough. Recently, I discovered the BBC’s “Robin Hood” series, and so far it’s been servicing my eyes quite alright. Especially that Lucy Griffiths playing Marian. *sigh*

This new film looks dirty and somber. I can see they’re going for historical accuracy and realism here. I’m confident this will end up being an epic feast and I’m positive it will be better than Kevin Costner & his mullet’s portrayal of the anti-hero, which I happen to love. Minus the many mistakes and goofs that movie has.

Can’t wait for this! Makes me wanna don green tights, fashion myself a bow & arrow and shoot something. Or someone. Perhaps a neighbor.

      1. The movie looks like a big stab of AWESOME to the eyes.
      2. I shall wear green tights and I shall fashion myself a bow & arrow and I shall rock. God knows a couple of my neighbors deserve an arrow or two!
      3. Yes! That’s the movie I meant, when I said “anthropomorphic animals.” That one and The Sword in the Stone are my 2 favorite Disney animated movies. 😀

    What about the disney one…(love it) and of course Robin Hood Men in Tights.

    Ha…that’s what I get for not looking at Susi’s comment first.

    • Siegfried Says:

      lol “Robin Hood: Men in Tights” is awesome! I used to laugh so hard with that one. Being the geek I am, I used to sing “We’re men, we’re men in tights..we roam around the forest looking for fights..” all the time. There’s nobody like Mel Brooks. Hmm, which reminds me, I have yet to read Max Brook’s Zombie books.

    So thats the song youre going to be singing while rocking the green tights? Good to know! You wont see me rolling down your street any time soon then.

  6. jammer5 Says:

    Ah, Men in Tights. Seriously funny. And always liked Ridley Scott, so the new Robin Hood should be awesome. And should you decide to run around in green tights, give me fair warning, huh? 🙂

      Oh, speaking about gaffs: I watched GI Joe, and being an ocean fisherman I am, I’m here to tell you tuna would never be swimming under the ice cap; they’re warm water pelagic fish 🙂

      lol Man, I hated that movie. Everything from those green nano-bots that can eat pretty much anything, even cities, to those guys running around Paris dressed as characters from the Halo video game. Don’t even get me started on how my eyes went wide and my jaw dropped when I witnessed how Cobra blows up an ice cap, and the ice.. sinks. If I had to choose something to like about it, I’d choose Scarlett, just ’cause she’s smoking hot.
