The King of Burps
Due to my aversion to looking at Peyton Manning‘s square head, the only reason I was planning to watch this Sunday’s Super Bowl was for the commercials. And now I won’t have to even do that. Yesterday we had the Shutter Island leak and today we have an epic look at Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood. Why pay the kajillion dollars for Super Bowl ad time when you’re just going to release the spot beforehand?
In spite of that, I gotta say that the movie looks pretty good. It’s pretty much Robin Hood: The Fatter Years, which is to say a gritty look at the outlaw marauder before he got Disneyfied. Imagine Braveheart with Russell Crowe as H.A.I.C. (Head Australian In Charge) as well as some scenes with boats (I don’t think I have to tell you how popular boats are). Let’s hope this one is a hit. Russell Crowe seems like a really humble and appreciative guy. I’d hate to see him fail. Unlike Manning. His head looks like a damn olive oil can.
HAVE AN EARLY LOOK AT THE SPOT AFTER THE JUMP…
