The justAtad Essentials: The Adventures of Robin Hood
There are a few films on my list that have earned their place mostly by virtue of their fun-factor. The Adventures of Robin Hood is perhaps the most fun out of any of them. If you watch The Adventures of Robin Hood and don’t enjoy it then I simply don’t want to know you. You have no soul. This film is unadulterated, swashbuckling, Technicolor magic. Errol Flynn is the definition of awesome. Olivia de Havilland is a beauty beyond compare. Claude Raines twirls his moustache and Basil Rathbone is about as big a jerk as you can find. There’s no subtlety, no deep emotion, no grand character development, no thematic complexity. Just boatloads of fun and men who laugh like real men!
