really wouldnt put american gangster alongside kingdom of heaven! robiin hood was a strong film its only downside was that it was too old fashioned.
Why wouldn't you?
AG and KOH were both narrative catastrophes.
KOH looked nice enough and had a few interesting characters/scenes (I like the kooky guy with the dyed beard), but it meandered almost aimlessly for the entire runtime and I didn't see much difference in the DC either.
AG was even worse.
Not even a few good scenes.
Gladiator was okay.
I actually haven't seen robin hood, but I've read reviews that describe some of the stupidest things a bad script might have to offer.
tiger-grrl warriors on mid evil battle fields and something about WW2 style amphibious assault barges?
The background story of him mangling that original script also seems to support my theory.
Its funny how everyone says the script for the counselor is the biggest flaw.
Cormac is a great novelist
But once again I think this could be ascribed to Ridley's utter obliviousness to script quality, and not recognizing that it may have had many attributes but needed a few tightening rewrites.
I actually hope he DOES do P2 as long as it keeps him away from a BR sequel.
I'm honestly kind of intrigued imagining how bad it will be.
