Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
Chris wasn't shocked to find out that Carlos and Donna were not huge fans of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. You could argue that certain aspects of it seem silly in hindsight, but the truth is a lot of these choices were pretty bizarre even back in 1991. What did surprise him a little bit was that they didn't like it when they were kids either.
It's interesting how divided our generation remains on this one. It's either a beloved holdover from a more innocent age or a five-word-punchline to a joke about early 90s excess. No matter which side of the fence you fall on, it's interesting to note that the film does a great job of illustrating how much summer blockbusters have changed over the years - and how much they've stayed the same.
Topics include: the additional footage in the Extended Edition and whether or not the theatrical cut was already too long, Chris' argument that Alan Rickman's much-lauded performance doesn't actually fit the tone of the rest of the movie, the bizarre and ultimately unnecessary witchcraft subplot, what's missing from Kevin Costner's performance (besides the accent), the moments he totally nails, our own alternate casting choices, and so much more!
