1796 - Robin Hood
Once I settled into realizing that this was pure origin story and we wouldn't be getting the typical Robin Hood in the forest story, I was okay with it. Although, truth be told, I'd watch a sequel to see what they did with that character in this world. I like the film enough, I didn't love it. I thought the politics with the French were just a bit much, I wasn't really interested in that so much I was England's internal turmoil. I like that King John outlaws him because of jealousy and ego, and that makes him all the more celebrated still.
So if you like your big action flicks with a sense of literary flare, this might be right up your alley.
