Robin Hood

Eric messaged me on gmail asking if i wanna go for Robin Hood...Saturday night show...some other guys were i thought why not? since i was free again this weekend...but i was post call on after morning round, i came home and slept till lunch...then went to Sushi King at Warisan Square for lunch with Siang Lin and Elaine...

Came home and slept...again..hahaha...such a pig...then woke up about 3.30pm and went for a swim with Elaine and Flora at the Likas Aquatic Centre....swam about 1 hour...and developed bodyache... damn unfit de...saw some kids training at the lap pool and diving pool...quite cool...then came home and bathed...

Then was rushing to the cinema...thought i was late, but Eric wasn't even there yet...and i saw the poster and realized that Russell Crowe was Robin Hood...i was like, dang!! if i knew i wouldn't have bother to watch...i don't understand the heartthrob status that he has attained...coz i can't see anything so heart-throbbing about him...but anyhow, since i was there, wasn't about to waste the ticket...

So, Robin Hood was alright...enough of action for me...with just the right amount of romantic scenes...and humour...Eric said it was a bit like Gladiator...well, thank God i didn't bother watching that...Robin Hood was basically about who Robin Hood was before he became Robin Hood...and how he met Lady Marion of Loaxley....the Prince (then King) John in this version was as despicable as all the other this one, Prince John actually locked his English wife out of his room while he was having a good time with his French mistress...what a b******...

But i think my favourite version of Robin Hood is still the cartoon version which i grew up with...the one where all the characters in the cartoon were animals and Robin Hood and Maid Marion were foxes...Little John was a bear...Prince John was a hairless lion and King Richard never died...and the theme song's first line goes like this: Robin Hood and Little John, running through the forest...and then i don't remember the lyrics de...anyway, many may doubt the sincerity of Robin Hood...but to me, he's about as human as a hero can be...

    Ah, but what about kevin costner's Robin Hood? that was pretty good. I agree with you about russel crowe, he's a bit of a PITA

  2. don't remember watching that version...maybe it was just as forgettable as this recent one...

  3. Robin Hood and Little John
    Walkin' through the forest
    Laughin' back and forth
    At what the other'ne has to say
    Reminiscin', This-'n'-thattin'
    Havin' such a good time
    Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
    Golly, what a day
    Never ever thinkin' there was danger in the water
    They were drinkin', they just guzzled it down
    Never dreamin' that a schemin' sherrif and his posse
    Was a-watchin' them an' gatherin' around
    Robin Hood and Little John
    Runnin' through the forest
    Jumpin' fences, dodgin' trees
    An' tryin' to get away
    Contemplatin' nothin'
    But escape an' fin'lly makin' it
    Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
    Golly, what a day
    Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
    Golly, what a day

    I am Kevin Costner's Robin Hood supporter. As a result, I never watched the current Robin Hood :D
