7. Robin Hood

If there’s proof positive that the legend stands the test of time, it’s that the most recent of the blockbusting Robin Hood movies was made in 2010.

Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett and Matthew MacFadyen (as the Sheriff) , it presents a slightly different view of the story, taking us from when humble archer Robin Longstride becomes Robin Hood, to the political turmoil of Feudal Saxon England and the problems with France.

We only have the legend of Robin Hood to work with, so it’s an interesting exercise to movie makers to see which direction they take the story. Although the basics will always be the same, movies about Robin Hood will always capture my attention. How about you? How many Robin Hood movies have you seen? Which is your favorite?
