Robin Hood 2010 Review – Non Spoiler

Robin Hood, from my understanding of Mr. Robin is that he’s an outlaw hero..He robs from the rich and helps the poor..

That’s all I know about Mr. Robin Hood..Owh, not to forget he’s good in archery and he stays in the forest..

If I’ve watched Kevin Costner’s Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) that might help a bit but unfortunately I didn’t watch the whole thing..So I know nothing about it..

The new Robin Hood (2010), actor Russell Crowe team-up again with director Ridley Scott (they did it for Gladiator) and I bet most people expect something as epic as Gladiator..

Honestly, I didn’t watch the whole movie of Gladiator so I wasn’t expecting any epicness from Robin Hood..

Read some reviews on papers and it’s said that this Robin Hood movie is the one with the oldest pair-up of Robin Longstride (Russell Crowe) and Lady Marion (Cate Blanchett), age 46 and 41 respectively..

*Robin Longstride and Lady Marion – taken from robinhoodthemovie.com*

Statistics aside, I was quite anticipated when I was watching the trailers before the movie started..Movie ticket thanks to UIP..And so the movie started, so am I with a bit of story-telling..

Being an ancient-background movie, set in the late 12th century England, we can expect a lot of knights with steel chains and armors and wielding swords and shields..

The script is somewhat humorous ala Pirates of The Caribbean, which I don’t really find it amusing but I don’t hate it..

Plot wise, I like it a lot because it depicts the life of Robin Longstride on how he became the legendary Robin Hood..

Well, I’m a history kinda person so yeah..King Richard the Lionheart, check..Robin Hood, check..Battle of the knights, check..

So if you enter the cinema thinking you already know who is Robin Hood, I guess you better think twice..

The climax, expect a lot of Legolas (LOTR) shooting arrows..Okay, not that many but it’s part of the story-telling of Robin Longstride’s highly skilled archery..So you’ll still see quite a number of it..

Other than that, it also depicts the unification of the English knights when Phillip of France attacked England..And of course why Robin Hood is exiled in the forest..

Although the story is a bit slow-pace but it’s my type of movie..I like drama..LOL~!!

By the way, from the look of the ending, I’m expecting a sequel from it..Well I can’t be sure and I’m just speculating..

I would give it a 7/10 because I like the plot but minus the epic..But then again, it’s just me..

Like how people like Pirates of The Caribbean but I’ve never liked it..So yeah, watch it and rate it yourself ;)

FLOW – Sign

FLOW, a Japanese rock band which is no stranger to anime fans, for their contributions in opening and ending songs of a few anime including Naruto and Code Geass..

The group’s base started off in 1993 with two brothers Koshi (elder, vocals) and Take (younger, guitar) began playing music..

They then joined by Keigo (vocals) and Goto (bass) in 1998, and Iwasaki (drums) in 2000..

Their notable songs include “Go!!” (Naruto 4th OP), “Days” (Eureka Seven 1st OP), and “Colors” (Code Geass: Lelouch of The Rebellion 1st OP)..

“Sign”, Naruto Shippuden’s 6th opening, is quite an energetic song just like their other singles..

If you watch Naruto Shippuden, the opening clip of the anime for this song is quite thrilling and it’s also where Jiraiya died in the battle against Pain..

Where as the music video for the song itself, the concept of light-painting is being used in the simple video..

So here is FLOW’s “Sign” music video and also lyrics..

A Quick Double Roti Telur Lunch

If you are a full-time student having holiday a.k.a semester break like me (a week ago), most of the time you’ll sleep very late, or perhaps VERY early in the morning..

As a result, waking up a bit too late for lunch coz day-time stalls/shops close around 3-4pm and night-time  stalls/shops haven’t fully operating yet, some not until 5pm..

Even if you still haven’t eaten your lunch at 5pm, something big portioned is not too good coz it’s nearing to dinner time already..

What’s the best lunch when this situation kicks in? Double roti telur from a nearby mamak stall is good enough..

*Two pieces of roti telur*

You can make it double roti telur or a piece of roti telur and a piece of roti kosong..

It’s good enough to hold you til dinner at about 7-8pm..

The Final Friday Performance By The International College of Music (ICOM)

Are you a fan of music, especially local talents? Well I am one..I like local music, started way back to my Primary school time where OAG and Butterfingers pioneered the local scene..

Not to mention I’m in love with contemporary and classical after watching Japanese drama Nodame Cantabile..

Now that local talents are diversified and in abundance, it’s good to see them taking a step further like how homegrown talent Zee Avi did with her ukulele..

The International College of Music is offering you some of its best talents in The Final Friday Performance on 7th May 2010, 4pm at ICOM’s Recital Hall..
