100 Movies before we move: #38
Ostentatious, gaudy, preposterous, vibrant. Outrageous fashion and anachronistic politics. Totally ridiculous and I loved it. 8/10.
Personally I think Robin Hood: Men in Tights was more believable in terms of time and place. This movie was to Robin Hood what the 2012 Jesus Christ Superstar Arena Tour was to the gospels: fun but completely rubbish in terms of being authentic. Also, both have Tim Minchin in a supporting role. This was a dumb adventure ride that was nevertheless entertaining. I give them this: they must have known how ridiculous it was and just decided to go for it. Nottingham has NEVER looked like this. MovieBob had it exactly right on this one: it’s bad, but you’ll laugh your ass off. 7/10.
