amatyultare: (don't ask)
I don't know that I can come up with any coherent thoughts on the new Robin Hood movie right now. The only thing that comes to mind is that this movie felt less like a 'Gladiator' remake (which is how I'd heard it described) and more like a weird LOTR remake, only this time Aragron marries Eowyn? And Sauron=the French? I don't know. For more thoughts, I refer you to the ever-hilarious Cleolinda.

(Also, [livejournal.com profile] tarimanveri, if you watch this movie, can you live-blog it somehow? Because I would love to read your history-geek-rage-fueled comments; also, without a way to vent, your head may explode somewhere between King Richard dying in battle on his way back from the Crusades and the part in which a proper Christian English lord gets a Viking funeral pyre.)

(However, Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea was excellent and I'm betting a good third of the soundtrack will be GBS songs. I may buy the soundtrack for that alone.)

(Also, Cate Blanchett is always fierce.)
