Robin Hood

I -- I don't know where to start. It's all so strange.

I'm best at the Tudor time period, but I've also read a lot about Eleanor of Aquitaine and her sons because -- let's face it -- Eleanor was the coolest European noblewoman ever. She told the King of France to take a hike, and he did. Eileen Atkins makes a pretty good Eleanor, don't get me wrong. The acting's good all around. But the history. Oh, the history.

Red Riding

Every year, I go to the Wisconsin Film Festival in Madison, and wallow in the excitement of having literally hundreds of movies available to watch that I might never have seen otherwise. This was the twelfth year, and it's huge now compared to what it was like the first time I went, way back in the third year, I think it was. Then, it was actually humanly possible to watch all the films over the two and half days of the festival. Most of them were shown at least two or three times.
