Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)

Episode 103 (February 9, 2024)

At the suggestion of our friend StitchAndStoryTime, we take a look at 1991’s Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. This movie was a colossal hit in its day, and it’s got a little something for everyone—tree houses and homemade gadgets and traps for the kids, sword battles for Dad, romance for Mom, and a healthy amount of the Dark Arts for Matt Stokes.
