Good Storytelling

Last night I rewatched the Ridley Scott version of Robin Hood. The one with Russell Crowe. While I watched it I was thinking about why I liked it so much better than the years earlier Kevin Costner version. I did enjoy the Kevin Costner one, and the theme song by Bryan Adams is played often on my playlist, but the story told in the Russell Crowe movie just seemed so much more …. right. It was dirtier, grittier, and yes…bloodier. And even though there was no love scene, I found it more romantic-especially when they danced without touching. It was all about eye contact, and wow was it hot!

It might sound weird, but to me it was more or a story, and less of a movie. Does that make sense? Have you seen either of them? Both of them? What are your thoughts?

    I liked both of them Sasha, but I have to agree with you about the Russel Crowe and Cate Blanchette version. I did like it better! I thought there were some cute/romantic moments in the other movie, too…but I bought the blu ray of the Crowe/Blanchette version. :) Blanchette is my favorite Lady Marian so far. :)

    I agree, Denise. Loved her. She was strong, and very believable.
