Robin Hood

So I thought the new Robin Hood movie was going to suck because it was a Ridley Scott/Russell Crowe joint, and they would do to that great story what they did to Roman culture in Gladiator.

Well, it appears that the movie is getting negative reviews, but not because of its Prince of Thieves-like awfulness. Nope, it turns out that Robin and his Merrie band resemble the Tea Party movement-types for thinking wistfully about declasse notions of "liberty" and finding taxes distasteful.

David Boaz has a recap here.
