Getting way ahead of it all but my thoughts drifted off to 2010 this morning and what movies await. I'm mildly curious about what Ridley Scott, Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett will bring to the millionth version of Robin Hood (2010). What is there to add? What angle can feel fresh? So out of curiousity a quick peek back at Kevin Reynold's 1991 blockbuster Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves which I've always disliked, primarily for its lack of tonal cohesion and for its absurd length (155 minutes to tell a story everyone knows by heart already?) But I understand some people love it.
Speaking of quick peeks, 77 and ½ minutes in Maid Marian (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) gets one.
Offscreen Voice: "I told you you can't go down there!"What's causing her astonishment down there? Why it's Kevin Costner's infamous butt double!!! Why any star would need a butt double for a scene filmed in long shot through a waterfall is a head scratcher. Eighteen years later it's still a prudish mystery.
Will Cate's mouth go similarly agape for Russell's arse in the next version? We'll find out in 159 days.
