I turned on the TV during midday to see the ending of the classic Errol Flynn Robin Hood movie. I was just in time for the sword fight which was pretty well executed. It had me on the edge of my seat! Alot of the action seemed incredibly fast, almost inhuman. Was the footage undercranked slightly?

Pretty cool, eh? I love the staging to take advantage of the columns and those big, hard (I assume arc) shadows.
