Another Robin Hood?

Did the Wachowski brothers pay that woman for stealing her Matrix movie. The sad thing is no one will hear about it since these idiots came out like crooks. She is a black woman at that and those two hacks did her real dirty for a cut of that Matrix movie.

Russell Crowe’s one was good enough, we don’t need another one!

An updated version of Robin Hood? With Will Smith? No thank you. Crowe’s was perfect in my opinion.

…crowe’s version of hood was horrible, horrrible. thumbs up for smith doing it better.

Is there no orginality left in Hollywood?

No originality left in Hollywood. It’s a shame.

Robin hood was just done, and done well. To have it done with Will Smith would be a joke..

Great movie idea! Can’t wait to see Da Hood and Thugs!

Love his movies.

Another Robin Hood?
Crowe’s version was perfect ..


Crowe’s version was EXCELLENT.
Ridley Scott is a master. He did Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Alien (the original), Thelma & Louise ..

Who the hell the Wachowskis brothers think they are?
When Matrix meets Sherwood forest .. Bad idea.

And if you think that Crowe’s version was bad then you don’t know anything about film making at all!

Crowe is a better actor than Smith. He got 3 academy award nomination, 2 of his movies won best picture in a row! and 5 of his films were nominated for best picture too .. What about Will Smith? He’s just an actor who pushes his kids to make them become famous ..

Crowe = Talent.
Smith = Scientology

I like Will Smith but let Robin Hood alone, the Russell Crowe version was such a disappointment, and it even had Ridley Scott as the director, the same guy who directed Gladiator. Will Smith can act, just watch The Pursuit of Happyness (yes it’s spelled that way in the title) for starters.

Crowe version killed RH movie fun for me. Hoping this one will ignite it back on. If nothing else Will smith would be easy on eyes….

dear i like u n m ur fan………

How Ironic?! The Wachowski’s steal ideas from then University Student Sxean Lee-David, and never credit him for his ideas for the first Matrix movie,then create a movie based on RobinHood. lol Maybe they think it will clear their conscience, because they’ve stolen from the poor. Now they’re finding a way to give back by making a movie about taking from the Rich. Hey, Lana, why don’t you just credit those that helped you get your sex change money ?!

ROBIN HOOD IS NOT BLACK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its like saying Indiana jones was black lol ..what would Harrison ford say ?……it would be a shock and not a good one
