Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves (Special Extended Ed&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Kevin Costner
This was one of my favorite movies way back when it came out in '91. What may have even prompted me to see it was that it wasn't gonna be the proverbial 'men in tights' satire. But Kevin never really did much that was meant to be an intentional comedy (some only turned out to be that way not by design). Hilarity was an element was not intended to dominant the script.

A casual viewer of the Lord of the Rings movie Trilogy may or may not appreciate what goes into the production of something of this magnitude. The DVD 'appendices' try to explain in what detail they can. All I know is I tip my hat to the exhaustive efforts of all involved in the making the Trilogy, especially Peter Jackson, WETA Workshop and the cast of characters. Lest not we forget one J.R.R. Tolkien in his brilliance, also. I will also admire New Line Cinema for having the confidence to invest in the vision and possibilities that Jackson displayed.
Owning the Trilogy is owning cinematic history. A tale renowned globally, even if it had to be modified for certain movie realities. A… Read more
