We're men. We're men in tight, TIGHT, tights. Robin Hood Men In Tights from 1993, is another Mel Brooks film we grew up quoting the hell out of in our youth! Spoofing the very spoofable Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (and many other films), this movie flew right over our heads in the 90s but we loved it nonetheless. From Cary Elwes, snooty yet heroic Robin, adorable Blinkin, the worst blind man ever, and even Maid Marion's ratty, red curly wig, we love it all! We'll talk about whether we think this or Spaceballs is our favorite Mel Brook's film, go over all our favorite scenes and lines, sing some merry men jams, and get right down to the everyone's favorite topic; chastity belts and what the fuck stop trying to control women's sexuality, you medieval assholes!
Not all of the movies that shaped our childhoods are from the 80s and 90s. We can't forget all those well worn classics that our parents made us watch and that we grew to love as well. So this week we did our oldest movie to date and probably the most famous movie in the world, from 1939 ... The Wizard of Oz! Everyone knows the story, the characters, and the iconic costumes and footwear but are we right in thinking this movie is creepy as a winged monkey now?! Jiminy Crickets! Listen up as we attempt a sing-a-long of all the famous songs (and butcher most of the lyrics!), pick our favorite munchkin and talk about the nutty urban legends and trivia facts that have traveled with this movie over the years. That's a horse of a different color!
1995's Batman Forever is the third installment of the Batman franchise as well as the first one not directed by Tim Burton but also the FIRST one that the Sweeties saw in the theaters! Michael Keaton is out and Val Kilmer is in as the brooding, conflicted Bruce Wayne who still can't come to terms with losing his parents or his love of bats. We loved this movie as kids but on this rewatch realized it's maybe not the greatest? We adore Jim Carrey's The Riddler (even if he gets a bit too hammy) and Val did a fine job trying to add depth to snoozy Bruce Wayne. However, we could do with a lot less of Tommy Lee Jone's Two Face and way, way less of way too into himself + what is with that misplaced earring Chris O'Donnell aka Dick Grayson aka Robin. We'll talk about what's our favorite Riddler costume, why is Chase Meridian such a hot mess, and warble out what we think to be the correct lyrics to Seal's Kiss From a Rose. We'll just say it ain't pretty! We're all getting Batman Forever tattoos guys!
