Highly Suspect Reviews: Robin Hood

1 Submitted by on Tue, 20 November 2018, 15:24

There’s no science to the statement, “It’s so bad, it’s good”. No way to even really characterize it in specifics that would be applicable to everyone or even more than a niche audience who would feel that way. Well, this 2018 version of the venerable old tale of Robin Hood is that movie for Alan and Chris. Taron Egerton is Robin, Jamie Foxx is John, Ben Mendelsohn is the Sherriff, Eve Hewson is Marian, Jamie Dornan is Will, Tim Minchin is Tuck, and the movie is basically an extreme leftish (I mean, EXTREME) call for violent revolution against the government. Like, the current one. Set inside of a CW superhero pilot. But more on those things and much hilarity in the review that you should listen to right now.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
