Update on the new Robin Hood film .."Sheriff of Nottingham"....Cate Blanchett as Marion....Oscar Isaacs as King John and Vanessa Redgrave as Eleanor of Aquitaine....Finally Scarlett Johansson starring in Napoleon and Betsy...and rumour has it she has agreed to play(her Idea) the Gladiatrix in a new film called "Amazon"....now that is a stretch...she is not a favorite of mine....I don't see any talent their....she has regressed from her earlier roles....

Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes godlike in "Titans"

There was a cheesy movie in the 80s by the same name ("Clash of the Titans") that gets a bad rap but I like it.

I still love the Robin Hood that came out at the same time as Costner's, much better (and loved Men in Tights, when Robin Hood says 'at least I speak with an English accent!). This new one might be intersting, and yes, Redgrave would be a wonderful Eleanor, tho she could read the Yellow Pages and enthrall me.

Noooo! Please tell me that Tom Cruise isn't going to do a re-make of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"!
