    I love Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. The chemistry among the cast, the sharp dialog, Michael Kamen’s score…just about perfect, I think. I recently read Ebert’s review, where he complained it was too dark, and that children would be taken to see it expecting it to be entertaining. I was 12 at the time, my brother was 8 and we both loved it. The opening is rather dark, and the stuff with Mortiana is eerie, but I never felt those things detracted from the fun of the film.

    Incidentally, the extended version of the movie is even better as nearly everything that’s restored to the movie is stuff that features Alan Rickman. He was flat-out awesome as the Sheriff of Nottingham.
