There has been something bothering me about the current poster campaign for the new 'Robin Hood' film. Robin Hood isn't that old, is he? Regardless of what history might say and no matter how ageist I'm coming off here, what the hell is a 46-year-old man doing in a 'Robin Hood' prequel? 'Robin Hood' movies are supposed to be a bit goofy, kind of fun, with lots of bows and arrows and sexy young things in tights.

Nineteen years after the last Hollywood romp through Sherwood Forest with Kevin Costner, the latest offering stars Russell Crowe, and is directed by his longtime collaborator, Sir Ridley Scott.
