Robin Hood. seven out of ten. Entertaining enough.

They obviously filmed it in Italy or Croatia or somewhere other than the north of England where Robin is from. It also looked like some of the costumes were sourced in top shop. Nottingham also had a lot of black people in those days which I never knew, I thought it was all white in the old days. There must also have been a lot of Irish immigration into the area in those days going by the accents of 2 of the movies leading characters. This film also featured the over the shoulder bazooka that fired arrows in the crusades. I know Robin Hood is a legend but I did expect a bit of historical accuracy.

The Resistance Banker 2018, is a dutch film about the financing of the dutch resistance by a couple of bankers during the ww2 nazi occupation. It's a great story and historical document.
There is an english dubbed version  on netflix,  as I have little tolerance for dubbed films, I just downloaded the dutch language version and added  the subs.

A Quiet Place - very good. Not great for the stress levels though. 8/10

Watched a couple Netflix ones. Christmas Chronicles was excellent. Bird Box was decent but could have being twenty minutes shorter.

It was an excellent biopic.

The only way, in my opinion, that anybody could fail to be impressed by it is if they thought it was a movie about space and space exploration

Bird Box on Netflix is a good show. Not quite a horror, as I was expecting but definitely a good concept.

Daft enough. Particularly how there wasn't a mention as to how everyone survived the 5 years between outbreak and the river journey!

Not too many novels get told on their entirety when they hit the big screen

Yes daft is the best word for it and too similar to The Happening (2008). For me, the malevolent presence / illness / psychosis wasn't explained anywhere near enough.
