Doomsday- quite a fun Rhona Mitra action film, but with a fairly predictable plot and nothing that hasn't been done before in better films. Worth watching if you have some time, but I kinda found myself wishing I was watching V for Vendetta or one of the Underworld films instead... ***
Tekken- one of the best game-to-films that I've seen. Some excellent scenes and some good casting... though they did go a little too far in trying to make the actors look like their characters (with Jin and Bryan fury it was awesome.. but a lot were pretty iffy). ****
Robin Hood- wooden WW2 landing craft in 12th century England... that's pretty much the only thing you need to know about this film. This is an american take on a popular British tale, and as such they change aspects that probably shouldn't be changed... some may find this a refreshing take on an old tale, but personally I find it pretty rubbish. **
Its still not a bad film, but it wouldn't even make it to my top 3 Robin Hood films:
1- Robin Hood - with Uma Thurman as Maid Marion (always forgotten, but great film)
2- Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Legendary film, but everyone has probably seen it once more then they should have.
3- Robin Hood: Men in Tights.... its totally shit, but great... good spoof.
4- Disney's Robin Hood... anyone who saw this when they were young will love it...
5- Robin Hood- Russell Crowe's version
