A few weeks ago TEN had Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves on the TV. I hadn't seen it, so I watched it with him. I "ooh'd and ahhh'd" about how I hadn't known the back story on Robin Hood. I had always thought he was a bit of a scoundrel, who decided to help "his people". I knew he did this by robbing the rich (like King John...bad, bad, man!) and giving to the lovely poor people.
I hadn't known he was a Lord. I hadn't known about his father. I hadn't know a lot.
This weekend Robin Hood was a soldier. An archer. With ZERO noble blood. What?!?!?
Here, have a look at this trailer:
Throughout the whole movie I kept saying "when is he going to rob from the rich people and give to the poor?". "Wasn't King John played by a lion in the cartoon? What were Robin Hood and Maid Marion? Were they foxes?" "Why isn't Robin Hood a Lord in this version? I'm so confused."
