    The Adventures of Robin Hood

    ★★★★★

    A rousing adventure story! It's been a long time since I've watched this, but tonight the wife and two sons who are still in college watched with me. This has been a family favorite pretty much their whole lives. There are some great rousing speeches about love for humankind and loyalty. Some fun battle scenes and dialog too. May be a little too sentimental, and some of that slows down the film, but I'm leaving it at 5 stars.

    I almost forgot to log this one. (See what I did there?) Liam Neeson plays a hit-man with Alzheimer's. Early in the film he realizes what is happening and knows it's time to get out. Nice to see him play his age. But he is told, "Men like us don't retire." He is given a double hit in his hometown and doesn't want to go, but does anyway.

    How can a movie I've watched for 30 years, every year, multiple times some years, how can a movie like that still cause me to tear up at the end? I know what happens, I've seen it before. That, my friends, is quality film making.

    What a waste of a great idea. If you decide to watch this, you can skip the first half-hour as all that happens is he's a photographer and something of a jerk. Finally, half-hour in he takes the photos that play in the plot. Then a bunch of nothing happens, then finally he develops the film and it's a great scene as he figures out just what he took pictures of. At 1 hour 34 minutes, we get to see The Yardbirds with Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck. 1/2 star for the "blow-up" scene, and one star for The Yardbirds.
