I wasn’t really arsed about the new Robin Hood, I have very clear memories of the 80s version with Ray Winstone (more on him later) and I thought it had a lot to live up to. So when it came on I just watched with an open mind. It’s perhaps as well it was open, what a pile of crap. The first woman on screen was plastered in make up and actually had eye make up on. The we get to Robin; he just looked like 15 year old chav. I suppose he may have looked like that, no doubt he would have been dirty and probably quite young…. I don’t know, maybe I’m just getting old and grumpy, I don’t want to see old geezers in green tights but come on, a little realism would be nice. As for the sheriff, Keith Alan may as well have been dressed like widow Twanky. I kept thinking someone was going to shout “he’s behind you”. And why did it keep jumping from spring to autumn ? Finally, why was Guy of Gisburn trying to be Sean Bean ? All these and more questions probably wont be answered in the next episode of ……
Now to the dire shite that preceded Robin Hood. England failed dismally to break down a well drilled Macedonia side. That’s the overview, what really happened was a bunch of over paid tossers who couldn’t give a flying fuck, turned out thinking they were going to roll right over poor little Macedonia. It’s about time our national coach started to select player based on their form rather than whether they are part of the old boys club.
Ray Winstone. Another one of our better acting talents has finally succumbed to the lure of the advertisers wad. He’s whoring himself on some crappy breakfast serial advert. What a fucking come down. Do these people honestly think they can be taken seriously after hawking stuff they never use to people who don’t really need it ? I’m with Bill Hicks on these matters…..
“You are Satan's spawn filling the world with bile and garbage. You are fucked and you are fucking us. Kill yourself. It's the only way to save your fucking soul, kill yourself. I know all the marketing people are going, "he's doing a joke... there's no joke here whatsoever. Suck a tail-pipe, fucking hang yourself, borrow a gun from a Yank friend - I don't care how you do it. Rid the world of your evil fucking machinations”
Couldn’t have put it better. Ray ? You listenin’ ? Ray ?
