I know that I’ve watched some Laurel and Hardy films, they used to be on the telly around Christmas, but to be honest I really couldn’t tell you if they were any good. It was a long long time ago. But Stan & Ollie was getting good reviews and it was on in the cinema […]
You all know the legend of Robin Hood, he stole from the rich and gave to the poor, living in Sherwood Forest with his band of merry men, his main nemesis being the evil Sheriff of Nottingham.

It managed to get the balance between myth and reality just about right, in my opinion, of course. But even Kevin Costner’s version was damn fine fun. This is not.
