Quick Movie Review

Posted by Socrates in movie reviews, movies, Socrates at 10:44 pm | Permanent Link

“Robin Hood” (2010), starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett. Directed by Ridley Scott.

I expected much more from a Crowe/Scott pair-up. I found the movie to be “lots of show, but not much go.” Plus, this version of Marian was too much of a feminist for me. Gimme the 1938 Errol Flynn version of RH any day, which was campy in a few places, yes, but still very entertaining.

      I haven’t seen it, and I probably won’t until it comes out on video (maybe not even then). Perhaps it will be better than that abortion that came out in the early 90s with Kevin Costner, which had Morgan Freeman playing a “moor” so they could get a brotha some airtime in Medieval England. As soon as I saw the commercials for that back then I lost all interest.

      Ridley Scott isn’t that great of a director in my opinion. I thought his much praised “Gladiator” was mediocre at best. Being a historian and specializing in ancient Roman and Greek history, I was disgusted by the fantasy element in that movie, on top of the incorrect armor, incorrect Roman military tactics and complete warping of history. Of course the lemmings don’t care about those sort of things, they just want their entertainment, no matter how much history is warped and distorted in the process. No doubt Ridley Scott will do much better with the retelling of Robin Hood, since there really isn’t any evidence that Robin Hood even existed and you can’t really fictionalize a person who may be fantasy in the first place.

      I hope there isn’t a “moor” in this new Robin Hood, although it wouldn’t surprise me if there was one since they have to get a coon in all historical flicks these days.

      Some time ago I rented “the Tudors” series from Showtime. I really enjoyed it for the most part, but wouldn’t you know it, they managed to get a nigger actor in a part as a English (or French) courtier or nobleman. I mean, c’mon! It was entirely possible that a coon would’ve been in Tudor England since the slave trade was in full swing, but as a nobleman? What a crock.

    3. torrence Says:

      The very fact that we view, comment and appraise Jew-fare coming steamy-hot straight from Hollywood is telling of the grip the media has on everyone – even among those associated with this fine board. Me? The last two films I ‘ve paid to see the past 20 (25?) years have been Michael Moore’s Farenheit 911 and Yentl – the story of a Jewess distraught over her assigned role as a female living amongst the Yids. And as for TV – none. I repeat – NONE. I have never seen an episode of Hill St. Blues, NYPD, CSI, Law and Disorder, 2 and 1/2 men, Seinfeld, Everyone Loves Raymond, etc. I don’t even know what I’ve missed or what’s out there now, to be honest with you. I do, however, watch as opportunity presents itself, the old B&Ws from the silents to the 50′s – white, European centered and for the most part exhibiting a morality worthy of our civilization.

      The point? If you want a New Order, you will have to shed and let go of the Old Order. And that is something you can start doing right now.

      Jew – Away from me! You have no hold on me.

    4. John Booth Says:

      seriously, that you give an F about some gay so-called hollywood movie throws all your credibility out the window. Nice work.

    5. Tim McGreen Says:

      Blackshirt, I just watched “Gladiator” again recently for the first time in several years and it was OK, but like you say it played fast and loose with the historical facts. Of course, there was an African Negro gladiator in the movie who befriends Russell Crowe’s character. But he seemed like a decent enough guy, unlike most of OUR Negroes. BTW, could you recommend any really good and historically accurate movies about ancient Rome? I remember the old PBS mini-series “I, Claudius” which I thought was pretty good.

      I’m starting to think Crowe is over-rated as an actor. He just mumbles his lines as if he couldn’t really care less about any of it. He seems to play the same character in every movie that he’s in.

      Torrence, you’re right, all those shows you listed never interested me either. But I still enjoy watching the really old TV series like Batman, The Beverly Hillbillies, Lost in Space and The Monkees. Unlike most of the programming that’s around today, those shows were actually FUN to watch! Does anyone remember “fun” anymore?

    6. torrence Says:

      Agreed, Tim. The old TV series you mention were watched by me also; all you mention, in fact. But even then, a different world prevailed. I would enjoy seeing a few again, but I only receive the minimum channels in my cable package and don’t know where to find them. It is not worth my time to investigate availability of the oldies through my cable company. In just the 40 years since these series were made – look at all that has been lost! A different world. We truly are now lost in space.

    7. Joe 90 Says:

      I’ve got a great idea for a film, set in olde England which includes niggers and is historically accurate. In 1596 Queen Elizabeth I sent an “open letter” to the Lord Mayor of London, stating, that England has a growing population of its own and does not need the “divers blackmoores brought into this realme”. The Queen requested co-operation in the deportation of these “Blackamoores”, “of which kind of people there are allready here to manie”. All the good work Good Queen Bess did in ridding this island of such “blackamoores” has, of course, been in vain, as muds have been encouraged to flood back in! Still it would be an inspirational film to make as it would show a White nation turning back the rising tide of mud.

      torrence,
      Take a look at Netflix. They have many of the older 50′s and 60′s TV series available. One of my favorites has been the old Richard Boone series, Have Gun, Will Travel and Fess Parker’s Daniel Boone. There are some I’ve looked for that aren’t out on DVD (Maverick) but there is so much of the older stuff out there that you can keep entertained for hours. They are one of the big reasons that the brick and mortar shops are closing. Blockbuster and the others concentrated on the the current releases – Those of us with a few years under our belts remember what it used to be like. They also have the new ‘stuff’ if you feel any of it is worth your time. I’ve also been watching the new Robin Hood series. In season 3 they’ve introduced a groid as ‘Brother’ Tuck. Oh, well.

      Just my opinion

    9. torrence Says:

      Hey there! – You racial nationalist wannabes:

      Can we stop providing free commentary and promotional reviews on the latest Jew-fare served steamy-hot straight from Hollywood?

      For those who are so enthralled about their media productions, start you own web site (HollyJew Review by Goyim Central?) and never again lament their prominence and control over US Media. You are making their ‘hard’ work pay off.

      Boo-boo-hoo. The Jews control our media, and that’s how they control us. Boo-hoo.

      Well, why do you let them?

      Away from me Jew! – You have no hold on me!

    10. torrence Says:

      I look at the interest and attachment to Jew-fare by some and can only conclude:

      White Aryan – you are not yet deserving or ready for your salvation.

    11. Blackshirt Says:

      Torrence, I understand your views and I’m acquainted with your logic, but if we are to follow your logic then we have to go all the way…

      Do you wear clothes? Sure you do. Undoubtedly there was a Jew involved somewhere in the manufacturing, distribution, and sale of those clothes. So, do you not wear clothes?

      OK, so we have a choice involving entertainment, unlike clothes where those are an absolute necessity. The point I’m trying to make is that you will drive yourself mad trying to eliminate things in your life where Jews were involved, overtly or covertly.

      Now, you basically say throw out all television and movies because a Jew may have been involved in it’s production. True, most television is absolute crap. But there is some value to what you see on television at times. How about Nature shows? I find Antiques Roadshow to be informative. Some Environmental and Historical documentaries are of value in my opinion.

      Like Tom Metzger, I believe you can find some value to what is put out in the multimedia as long as you view it through the filter of your sensibilities as a White Racist.

      Torrence, I commend you for your dedication, but you come across very “holier than thou”. Television and movies themselves are only mediums, which if we ever come into power could be used for our own purposes. But to consign all media to the dustbin because Jews are involved is giving the Jews far too much credit. How? Well, you are saying that they are all-powerful enough to control every aspect of the media, which is basically untrue. The fact is that some healthy information and programming does escape the Jew filter from time to time.

    12. Blackshirt Says:

      Anyone remember the Mel Gibson film “Braveheart”? I’m sure many of you do. I could find no hidden Jew message or influence in that movie anywhere. On the contrary, I found that movie promoted the White values of loyalty to your kin, courage and bravery. Now that is an example of a movie made within the past 20 years that had some value.

      “BTW, could you recommend any really good and historically accurate movies about ancient Rome? I remember the old PBS mini-series “I, Claudius” which I thought was pretty good.”

      Ah yes, the “I, Claudius” series was excellent! Unfortunately there hasn’t been another series based on the ancient world that even came close to the historical accuracy of that series in regards to the facts. The HBO series “Rome” was pretty good for historical accuracy when it came to Roman customs, clothing, and some historical facts. It was far superior to the movie “Gladiator” when it comes to modern portrayals of ancient Rome. Also, the acting in “Rome” was very good- probably because it involved quite a number of actors from the Royal Shakespearean Company.

    14. Howdy Doody Says:

      Less Whites buy movies and Cable TV every quarter and the enemy aliens know this.

      The Southerner 1945

      The Wild Bunch 1969- Simply for showing Messycan’s as they truly were/are.

      Then Long Rider’s 1981

      Excaliber-1981, one of the best for reaching the hearts of our brain washed youth.

      The Live 1988.

      Monte Walsh-2002 Tom Selleck

      Letters From Iwo Jima 2006

      God’s and Generals- only 20 minutes of Marxist enemy hog wash in whole movie, just erase those parts and enjoy.

    15. Howdy Doody Says:

      As with Excaliber it was a White man who made it possible 100% and a few others.

    16. Blackshirt Says:

      Howdy, Excalibur was a great fantasy flick although it was based mainly on Thomas Malory’s book. It is definitely one of my favorite movies.

    17. th Says:

      Since the film industry is money in the pockets of kikes and propaganda for the masses, I don’t particpate. Every now and again while sitting at airports I get glimpses of the latest propaganda and that minute or two reminds me of why I have no jew media in my home. As close as I get is listening to the country station in my cars. All jew media does is piss me off.

    18. Dave Says:

      I hate movies. I just really hate them. The music they play to attempt to rile up the audience drives me up the wall! The sound effects. Everything over dramatic and the people just eat it up!

      Well, There are a couple of movies I can stand. Since I naturally hate 99% of them I have no problem just not ever going to see one again,so I am extra picky as to who makes it and who’s in it as to weather or not I see it. I have not seen a movie in over two years,until now!

      The reason I went to see it was the lack of jews involved,and b/c it was a Ridley Scott film. I love the Duelist so much that I was hoping he might make another movie as great as that. All I can say is the brief review is super accurate.

    19. Tim McGreen Says:

      Movies can be an art form, just like music, painting and sculpture. Anything directed by Stanley Kubrick, for example, is great, an instant classic. Just look at the cinematography in his 1975 film “Barry Lyndon”. Or like Dave suggests, 1977′s “The Duellists”, starring Harvey Keitel and Keith Carradine. Just because a Jew might be involved somewhere along the way doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to be a stupid, puerile movie, you know. George Lucas is a gentile and he makes terrible movies.

      I think it’s possible to be racially concious and Jew-wise without having to deprive yourself of certain entertainments and experiences. You don’t have to be a friggin’ Quaker about it.

    20. Howdy Doody Says:

      Thomas A. Edison made them possible.

      There are movies like I listed that good stories to feed the spirit.

      I do not have a TV for 11 years and have carefully picked what I view.

      Monte Walsh was purchased by at least ten’s of thousands of Whites for gifts, and it save Selleck from bankruptcy too. It is the only movie I ever purchased to give away to relatives and friends.

      I think it’s possible to be racially concious and Jew-wise without having to deprive yourself of certain entertainments and experiences. You don’t have to be a friggin’ Quaker about it.

      I agree. Also, analyzing a jew production for political content can be interesting in itself. But I’m with Dave on this: I can’t stand most movies. I’ve also noticed the use of cheap tricks like sound fx and ridiculous music to “spice up” an otherwise dull effort. That’s one thing that you’ll notice about movies from thirty years ago or more: how quiet they are. Today’s overstimulated populace cannot handle more than ten consecutive seconds of silence in their movies, apparently.

    22. Tim McGreen Says:

      Good point about how noisy movies have become, M. Kraus. I tried to watch the latest Star Trek movie last night on DVD and it was so noisy and visually obnoxious that I had to turn it off about 5 minutes in. What a piece of junk. If Gene Roddenberry was still alive he would never have allowed it to be released.

      By contrast, a few nights earlier I watched “The Conversation”, a 1974 film starring Gene Hackman. Talk about quiet! And then I watched another DVD featuring some interviews from the old Dick Cavett show. More quiet! And he interviewed REAL guests like Gloria Swanson and Douglas Fairbanks Jr., not the skanks and no-talent retards who pass for celebrities these days.

      You’d have to be a damn fool not to believe this civilization of ours is rapidly deteriorating.

      I find it interesting that you disparage all movies as “money in the pockets of kikes and propaganda for the masses” and yet you listen to country stations in your cars(?) What could be more jewed than modern “Cuntry” music? Not trying to attack you or anything, it just doesn’t make sense.

      All of this has a lot to do with the demographic that movies are aimed at these days- teen-aged boys. As you all are aware, modern teens are overstimulated from the first time they are born, sat in front of a TV set by parents who are too busy or uncaring to spend time with them. No wonder the “electric Jew” has such a hold on the masses- much of the blame lies with the parents for this phenomenon. Of course we are also in the age of arrogation of responsibility and selfishness, so parents make excuses for their lack of involvement in their children’s lives. When those kids grow up with mental, physical and social problems related to over stimulation and lack of focus, these same parents wring their hands in supposed ignorance of how any of this could have happened.

    25. CW-2 Says:

      Re the reference to “Braveheart”, it was a good and entertaining flick, BUT it did in an indirect way serve the interests of the self-chosen by blackening the reputation of Edward 1, a great and powerful king who had the balls to kick the kike ass out of England FOREVER and NEVER to return on pain of death. That law has never been repealed and is still on the statute books.

    26. Dave Says:

      @ Tim

      I really do believe that The Duelists is the most beautiful movie i have seen as far as cinematography is concerned. I also love revenge stories and it is based on a true story.

      I was upset to find out that Harvey Keitel was a jew, but it did not ruin the movie for me. I’ll have to check out Barry Lyndon. Lucas does make crap.

    27. The Red Skull Says:

      @CW-2
      If King Edward did give the kikes the boot–Then i like his character alot more.Other than that,why did he give them the boot?–Conspiring!!–(theres that word) with the enemy?Selling poor quality goods to the wrong barons one too many times?Trying to bring in muslim or negro “immigrants”?Them kikes get there digs in no matter what.I’m guessing he wasn’t the asshole portrayed in the the movie exactly?Although one of my favorite parts is when the King throws his sissy-sons homo lover out the window.

      @Blackshirt
      I agree with your earlier post Brother @10:42 am-exactly.Am i supposed to throw out my entire War Movie Collection because some kike was involved in production somewhere??We have to separate the wheat from the chaff.and i will agree jew-wood produces alot of trash,theres some stuff that slips under their net.Or it can be viewed from a WN perspective.
      Example.Passion of the Christ was a movie the jews HATED and didn’t want released–and even gave it their most honored title(if your WN) of “anti-semitic”!!Everyone should run and buy a copy of it for that reason alone!Also,Mel and his pops are wise the the Jew World Order,and he even spouted off about it when he was liquored-up in California somewhere i believe.Also–Gladiator is one of my favorite newer sword and sandal movies,and being a student of Ancient History myself,i was disappointed somewhat in the “fantasy” aspects and the “ever present negro” but overall enjoyed the violence and story,especially the battle scene at the beginning,even tho the producers ripped off the soundtrack from “ZULU” and used it for the Germans.JP played a great perverted Emperor.Braveheart is also a favorite.Anything except where he teams up with the radical liberal BN negro Danny Glover.

      Just my two cents.View it all through the lens of WN,and whats acceptable to us and what is not.

    28. Tim McGreen Says:

      I think Mel Gibson has more of a problem with the British than he does with the Jews.

      And the Jews who run Hollywood ought to get down on their knees every day and thank their God of Israel for Adolf Hilter. Those Jew movie studio executives wouldn’t be half as rich as they are now if it weren’t for all those WWII movies they crank out, most of which are pathologically anti Hitler and anti German. And they should thank Mel Gibson, too. He’s made a fortune for Hymiewood over the past 30 years. No-good Jew ingrates.

    29. Alfred Rosenberg Says:

      Attaboy, torrence! You are absolutely correct. Every time I see movie reviews come up on so-called WN sites, I yawn, cough, sometimes puke. Predictably, it’s mostly younger men who care about the stuff – which isn’t a good sign. I mean, hell, it ain’t even entertaining! It’s crap!

      When an eighteen year old boy can’t identify a “movie star” it’ll be a good day.
