Super7 Disney Action Figures

When it come to the classic animated Disney movies, finding quality collectibles paying tribute to them can be rather difficult unless you want to spend a hefty amount of money. That’s especially true when it comes to action figures inspired by the Disney movies of decades ago. But the toy makers at Super7 are about to change that.

Today, Super7 announced a new partnership with Disney that will have them created a line of Ultimate Figures inspired by the many characters of Disney’s long history of animated movies. We’re talking quality action figures that bring the classic Disney animation style to life in 3D, complete with an outstanding array of accessories. And they’re starting with Mickey Mouse from the Fantasia short The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Pinocchio, and Prince John from Robin Hood. Read More »

Robin Hood Honest Trailer

Hey, did you forget there was a new Robin Hood movie last year? It’s hard to keep up since it seems there’s a new version of the legendary outlaw every few years. But let’s be honest, it’s been a long time since any of them were good. And unfortunately, the latest iteration starring Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton keeps the trend going.

The uniquely titled Robin Hood is so bad that you probably shouldn’t even accept the money Robin Hood is stealing from the rich, because he probably needs it more than you do after how badly this movie bombed at the box office. But as the Robin Hood Honest Trailer points out, that’s not even the worst part of this new take on Robin of Locksley. Read More »

Thanksgiving is always a huge weekend at the box office, with a bunch of new titles packed into theaters while families are together for the holidays. This year was no exception, with Ralph Breaks the Internet raking in enough dough to land the second largest Thanksgiving box office haul ever across the five-day holiday weekend. And not far behind was Creed II, landing the largest opening ever for a live-action film released in this window. But the new Robin Hood starring Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx? That one didn’t do so well.

robin hood featurette

The latest iteration of Robin Hood opens with our hero (Taron Egerton) receiving a letter of conscription into the Crusades, and being thrust directly into the middle of an Iraq War allegory. Robin and his men are dressed in clothes that resemble bulletproof vests, and fire off arrows with such force and speed that director Otto Bathurst might as well have gone all the way and had them toting guns.

It’s a nuttiness and strain for modernity (and modern relevance) that persists throughout the entire film, and perhaps the only thing about Robin Hood that justifies the opening voiceover that claims this to be a Robin Hood we’ve never seen before. On a strictly technical level, no, we’ve never seen this version of Robin Hood’s story before, but we have seen everything that happens in the film in almost every big blockbuster before this.
