Robin Hood - La Leggenda <b>DVD</b> ~ Uma Thurman
Robin Hood - La Leggenda DVD ~ Uma Thurman
3.0 out of 5 stars A pleasent surprise, 13 July 2014
No where near as glossy as the Kevin Costner film and not quite as gritty as the Russell Crowe version, this is aninterpretation of the myth and legend that falls between both.

It's down and dirty, but still remains some wit, humour and of course romance.

Patrick Bergin makes a likable rougue as Robin, whilst Uma Thurman in an early role is a good Marion, full of spirit and attitude.

The film got eclipsed by Prince of thieves, and whilst not as slick, is still a great take on a robin hood tale, full of action, a great supporting cast and well directed, it goes for realism rather than Hollywood gloss.

Well worth a watch.

Slater plays likeable slacker Kuffs who… Read more

When Tom Cruise as vampire Lestat takes on a young apprentice in the form of Brad Pitt's Louis, it sets in motion a story of two lost souls wandering the earth for eternity, having to kill innocents to survive, something Pitt's charachter is conflicted by.

The story has Pitt tell his tales of living through the centuries to reporter Christian Slater in modern day America, where he recounts his various adventures/horrors, and thusthe stage is set for a lotbof period flashbacks as we learn of his and Lestat's life (should we say death - they are vampires after all).

Director Neil Jordan creates a beutiful and dark gothic period drama, visually it jumps off the screen,… Read more
