I saw Ridley Scott’s take on Robin Hood the other night at an advance screening, and I wasn’t disappointed in spending 130 minutes at the theater. I also didn’t pay for the ticket, so take from this what you will.
Positives: The casting of the movie is pitch-perfect. Russell Crowe’s Robin Hood is a badass, Cate Blanchett plays a strong Maid Marian, and Mark Strong proves again he’s a great go-to bad guy (he was previously the villain in Sherlock Holmes and Kick-Ass). But my real favorite was Kevin Durand (Keamy on Lost), who looks as though he’s having the time of his life playing the muscular, destructive Little John.
A girl more athletic than a boy in middle school gym class = premature emasculation.
If everyone generally agrees that sex is great, then why do people say “sex sells” like it’s a surprise?
