    Robin Hood-utter drivel!

    Just back from this-been wanting to see it for months,what a sad dissapointment.

    Maybe someone should have told ridley scott that the reason nobody had ever filmed the "true" story of robin before was that it was tedious beyond belief.

    Without using any spoilers,basically,nothing happens for 2 hours until ridley gets his "saving private ryan" moment on the beach,and err,thats it.

    I absolutely WANTED to like this,but it is just boring,boring,boring.

    I'll find out on Saturday. It looks good though.

    expect it is like most ridley scott films, hugely over-rated and disappointing. Cant think of more than 3 decent films he has ever done

    its the lack of bryan adams tru say

    You can't? Even if it was just 3 then that's a decent amount but come on:

    Alien - Absolute bona fide classic of the genre
    Blade Runner - See Alien comment
    Gladiator - Can't think of a better swords and sandal movie and yes I've seen all the classsics
    Black Hawk Down - Excellent technical movie, not many better war movies
    Matchstick Men - Hugely underrated
    A Good Year - extremely enjoyable "gentle" movie.

    For the first two on that list alone he has earned his place in movie history.

    I always felt it was a bad choice for him to do a Robin Hood movie. I think it's a bad choice for anyone to do a Robin Hood movie. POT was fine for that story.

    Apparently he's doing a prequel to Alien next, all about the space jockey from Alien.
    Now that may be worth watching.

    ok, maybe 3 was an understatement but I would still only say that American Gangster, Alien and Bladerunner are excellent films. A lot of the stuff he has done is awful (GI Jane, White squall, 1492)

    You're very anti-3D Master, why the bitterness, there's always a 2D choice.

    To say you think he made 3 excellent films in your opinion is good going for most Directors. Of course there are some that have made more top quality movies but not many and very few hold claim to making masterpieces like Ridley has.

    Hated American gangster, that does fit in with your initial point on this thread.

    yeah, each to their own. Personally, I wish Frank Darbont would direct more films (green mile, the mist, shawshank, the majestic)

    Three great movies there, not seen Majestic yet. He should just work on adapting King novels, become his official adaptater.
