The MovieFilm Commentary Track: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

robin-hood-prince-of-thieves-5861788196265There’s a brand new Robin Hood movie in theaters now, but we’re not here to talk about that! Instead, our commentary track is for the Robin who stole from the rich while also stealing our hearts, 1991’s Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Join Brian and Zaki as they watch the smash hit movie directed by Kevin Reynolds and starring Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Rickman, and hear them exchange their own personal memories of a time when Kevin Costner could make the world believe that England’s greatest outlaw had an accent from somewhere in rural Iowa, and when a big budget Robin Hood movie could command the pop culture zeitgeist in a way that’s, frankly, a bit perplexing. We love this flick, and we hope you have fun listening, either through the embed below or via iTunes, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, and Spotify!

The first Indy sequel reunited star Harrison Ford, director Steven Spielberg, and producer George Lucas, and took our intrepid archaeologist on a darker journey than anything audiences were expecting at the time, and while some aspects don’t hold up as well as we’d like, it’s still a rip-roaring good time that we’re excited to talk through and share our memories, observations, and anecdotes.

joker-joaquinWe confidently proclaimed it would never get made, but apparently Warner Bros. didn’t get the memo, because the Joker movie (based on the DC Comics villain) directed by Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix is in production now, and we have some thoughts based on the early photos we’ve seen.

X-Men epic from Fox, Dark Phoenix!  Also, Space Jam 2 is actually happening, and we’re not quite sure what to make of that.
