He ain't wrong
First of all I wanna say that all the characters are very hot and as a Bi-Woman it's just a real treat for the eyes. What I do not understand tho is why they portrayed Robin as this unbelivablly hot model, when there is already another girl in the friendgroup who not only is way hotter, but from what we've heard also way kinkier.
What do you think?
I'm always a sucker for Ridley Scott movies. Even when the movies are poor, there's always something to enjoy like a great cast or amazing production design. That's where we come to the 2010 Robin Hood movie. It has a great cast (Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Max von Sydow, Oscar Iasac, Mark Strong) and amazing production design. While I may not put it on the same level as Scott's other historical epics like Gladiator or the director's cut of Kingdom of Heaven, I still enjoyed it.
This version of Robin Hood strips out the legend aspect and goes more for historical accuracy; telling Robin's story like he actually existed. Robin doesn't wear green tights (Can you imagine Russell Crowe wearing them?) and we only seem him "Robbing from the rich, and giving to the poor" in one scene.
Instead, this movie plays more like an origin story showing Robin's tenure during the Crusades, meeting the core of his Merry Men, and finally teaming up with Prince John to defeat French invaders. The actual legend of Robin Hood is teased at the end, perhaps setting up a sequel we never got.
After finishing this movie, I did find myself enjoying it but for more the factors listed above. A lot of effort went into the sets and the costumes and the action set pieces that I can't help but enjoy it. I think the best way to view this movie is to remove it from the Robin Hood legend and enjoy as a solid historical epic. Heck, you could change the names of the characters and you wouldn't even know this is a Robin Hood movie. Plus, we will always have the Errol Flynn and Kevin Costner Robin Hood films that play more to the legend aspect.
What did you think of Robin Hood (2010)?
"It's not legendary unless your friends are there to see it".
I was thinking about the last few episodes and how Barney should have been stoked to travel the world with Robin. Think of all the legendary things the Barnacle could do around the world, with a legitimate excuse to be there (My wife is on assignment with WWN). Why wasn't he happy. And then I remembered him telling those 2 young men this line and that's when it hit me. He's miserable without his friends and these adventures are no longer legendary because they aren't there to share it with.
And the repeated "It's great" wasn't him trying to convince Ted he was happy with Robin when he really wasn't. It was him trying to convince Ted and himself that he wasn't miserable being away from the people that made his life legendary.
