Default New Robinhood Movie

Such a let down...

Gladiator was the best movie ever, imo, so to have Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe teaming up in another epic movie format, I was soooo excited.

Doesnotdeliver/10

It's an okay movie... 2.5 hours long with probably 10 minutes of action and a total 30 minutes of content. The rest should've wound up on the editing cutting floor.

That get you nice and wet Rev?

Nah, it's a thoroughly watchable film and all that but I don't think I've ever heard anyone put it even near a best films of all time list, so was just a surprise reading the post.

Have heard from a few people now that the new Robin Hood is a bit ****. Real pity that, and quite a feat to make a bad film when you have such wonderful material as your starting point.

I'll be kind of laughing at Ridley Scott is it turns out to be a flop to be honest, I read an interview a few months back with him and he came across as being a bit of a dick.

Ridley Scott has made the same movie about fifteen times. It sucked every time. I hope he chokes on the millions that inevitably come his way.

Agreed, you and I would be great friends this is all I need to hear...

I'm so dissapointed this movie doesn't deliver.. I'm a fan of almost everything Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe and they are certainly epic when the team up together.


I guess I'll pass on the new movie and go to the drive in and watch date night/hot tub time machine then.

I consider Braveheart, Gladiator and the Patriot as similar movies. I liked Gladiator and dont mind seeing it if its on TV, but I am not going to go out my way for it.

Don't know how people can't put Gladiator as one of the best. One of my favorite movies ever made too.

I've yet to see Robin Hood yet but I've heard similar sentiments.

Hopefully Ridley Scott can come back to glory with the Alien prequel.

I've seen Gladiator at least 6-7 times, love the movie. I wouldn't call it the best movie of all time. My favorite movie is Groundhog Day, but I realize it isn't the most significant work in the history of cinema.

Well, you've just convinced me to see Iron Man 2 instead of Robin Hood. Thanks Rev.

It's smart, action packed, and it's extremely well done. I don't think there's even been a movie that's delivered the hero/villain contrast as well. The General turned reluctant combatant with nothing left to lose against the sniveling, selfish, cowardly and traitorous emperor.

If you like an extra hour of a love story, sure. Braveheart is one of my top 5 so I won't argue with your opinion.

So wait... you criticized me saying "Gladiator is the best movie ever, imo" (and conveniently chopped out the "in my opinion" part), only to fess up that Groundhog day is yours?

Gtfo...

It's not like.. awful. If you're bored, sure go see it. Definitely rent it to see for yourself at least... but yeah, Ironman 2 is in a different class. This was... well, without spoilers, the movie kinda ends where you want it to start...

The Roman Empire was much more interesting and highly entertaining compared to kilt wearing scotts.


Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed Braveheart. Also Kingdom of Heaven, Glory, the Patriot, The Alamo, and Last of the Mohicans were solids movies as well.

The Postman = greatest flop of an epic style move.

Just dicking around. Said Groundhog day is my favorite, not the best film ever. I realize it's an opinion, just giving you a hard time.

Last of the Mohicans is SOOOO good.

I'm a big Usual Suspects fan, though its a completely different style of movie.
