Mamo #167: Nottingwho?

THWACK! That is the sound of an arrow, not so much hitting its target as the next tree over. Robin Hood in theatres, and the reactions are varied. Tons of money overseas, not so much money here, and wasn't this thing called Nottingham once upon a time? Mamo investigates!

back in my home of Oz (in France now) Robin Hood did open for $US 4.9m which was $900,000 more than IM2's 2nd week which was the previous week, which is the equivalent of about a $60m NAmerican opening, i did'nt like and though Crowe sleepwalked through the film so i don't really care how much money it makes, as long as it doesn't take off in the foreign markets like 2012, which it seems like it won't, i really don't wanna talk about RB beyond today, its a new week which will probably be Biutiful week cause i reckon it like win the Palme D'or even though its not as good as Babel and just stuck in the Inarritu runt.

On to something else, do you guys want to use netflix watch instantly? i'm guessing you do if you have a good, disposable internet-plan, so I've been watching 2 films a day on netflix for a week now and have found the one program you'll need (the 7th i've used so far) get it on:

I'm not sure why Robin Hood produced such a visceral reaction, but I was upset at how much I disliked it walking out.

The whole thing just felt wrong to me.

I just got back from a trip in Europe and couldn't help but notice the differences in advertising campaign for Robin Hood. Cate Blanchett is featured in most of the international posters I saw. Plus there were a number of posters of Cate Blanchett and Russell Crowe dancing together, pushing the romance angle of the movie. I imagine this helped get a lot more women interested in the movie, compared to North America where it was advertised mainly an action movie.
