I'll stab you with a spoon.

Back in the 90's, when I was a freshman in high school, I used to watch Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. It was one of my favorite films. When I say favorite , I mean ....
- I would watch it over and over, more than twice a day.
- I memorized all the lines.
- I would know what's the next scene.
- I know the actors and actresses' names.
- NO one can touch the VHS when I'm using it. By the way, VHS was the dominant home video player during the 90's.
- ...and to the point that I planned to get a custom made replica of Robin Hood's necklace.

Kevin Costner played as Robin Hood who was so hot back then and until now. I hate to admit this but I guess, men do age better. Together with him was Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Christian Slater, Alan Rickman, the outstanding Morgan Freeman and a lot more. It was a combination of action, humor and love story.

For the hopeless romantic like me, who doesn't love the soundtrack?

One of the favorite lines in the film was when the Sheriff of Nottingham said that he'll cut out Robin Hood's heart with a spoon and his cousin asked, "Why a spoon, cousin? Why not an axe?". ...and the Sheriff replied, "Because it's DULL, you twit. It'll hurt more."

Until now, I would want to stab someone I hated with a spoon.


  1. I haven't watched this film.. Hope you won't hate me, lol!

    1. No, i won't hate you but i will stab you with a spoon. :))

    2. Oh how I hate Crybaby when we watched it together. You can't hear the dialogue but her loud voice speaking the lines with feelings. Leche!

    3. I hope your friends didn't hate me too. :))

  2. there was a rich man from Nottingham who tried to cross the river...

    I had a crush on Christian Slater :D

    1. I had a crush on him too especially on his Bed of Roses film.
