Robin Hood: Men in Tight, a review by Rich




Title: Robin Hood: Men in Tights

Runtime:100
Certificate:PG
Year:1993
Genres:Comedy

Plot:The legend that had it coming, ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS wipes away the mystery - and the dignity! - of England's most infamous stocking-filler as Robin of Loxley and his merry men bring a dose of sheer mayhem to Sherwood Forest!  Throwing away their titles and their trousers, Robin and his nylon-clad crew battle to bring down the evil Prince John and his hideous side-kick the Sheriff of Rottingham to procure the key to Maid Marian's heart...and her chastity belt!  ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS...There's no flies on them!
My Review:
I have always thought 90% of Mel Brooks ventures were awful, but this sinks to a new low and is total crap.
A couple of reasonable performances from the likes of Cary Elwes and Eric Cramer try to drag this film up to mediocre, but sadly it only worsens with cheap and tacky gags, some downright awful acting, and sets looking distinctly amateurish and low budget.
Not sure if it's just that I dislike the director so much my view is tainted, but I cannot believe anyone would get more than a couple of titters from this weak spoof comedy.

Return of the Living Dead, a review by Dragonfire


The Return of the Living Dead



Just when you though it was safe to go back to the cemetery - those brain eating zombies are back and hungry for more tasty mortals. A fiendish mix of outrageous humor and heart-stopping terror. The Return of the Living Dead is a "veritable smorgasbord of fun" (LA Herald-Examiner) filled with skin-crawling jolts, eye-popping visuals and relentless suprise!

On his first day on the job at an army surplus store, poor Freddy unwittingly releases nerve gas from a secret U.S. military canister, unleashing a unbelievable terror. The gas re-animates a corps of corpses, who arise from their graves with a ravenous hunger for human brains! And luckily for those carnivorous cadavers, there is a group of partying teens nearby, just waiting to be eaten!

I very much enjoyed this pilot episode of the new Knight Rider series. Sadly the rest of the series didn't live up to it. Except towards the end when they retooled the show, it became something I would have liked to see continued.
