Robin Hood

IMDb ; Metacritic

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. And there have been many version of Robin over the years. My personal favourite still remains the tv show from the 80s Robin of Sherwood. 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.

Ladyhawke

I’ve wanted to buy this film on dvd for a long time now, but kept putting it off because it is a pretty vanilla dvd release. Menus are not a special feature. Still better late than never I suppose.

For those that don’t know, Ladyhawke opens with Broderick escaping a prison. In fact he is the only person to have ever escaped from this prison, so his captors really want to recapture him and show everyone that no one escapes from the Dungeons of Aquila. The guards almost recapture him, but he is saved by Etienne Navarre, the ex-captain of the Guard, a man wanted by the Bishop’s men.

King Arthur

This film suffered from many poor reviews. Both from critics and, in my case, from friends who found it boring. Course I don’t read reviews before I go see films, I try to make up my own mind. Still I wasn’t expecting a lot from this film.
I’ve never really been a huge fan of Arthur films. First Knight was really really crap, imo, and Excaliber was a bit wierd. Plus there is the whole Monty Python thing :)

So why’d I go to see it?
Ray Winstone of course!
