    1. he is one of Asia's greatest artists, always offers us such visual splendour with all his projects. Like a painter with camera instead of a brush.

    1. I watched Robin Hood with Russell Crowe last night. I liked visual aspect of that one as well. It lasted too long, but it had nice width in the visuals, even the costumes looked big in a luxurious way.

    2. I think many of the Robin Hood films are way too long. Anything over 2 hours and I just can't take it anymore. I think 1.5 hours is the perfect film length for me.

    3. longer than two hours should be banned according to law, it is unnatural.
