The year before THE LORD OF THE RINGS changed cinema forever we finally got a live-action movie based on the RPG game DUNGEONS & DRAGONS… and it sucked. With an embarrassingly low budget, a cast of actors who are either out of their element or way too good for this, and a story that seems to be missing whole scenes, it’s one of the most embarrassing adventure films of the century.
So why is DUNGEONS & DRAGONS the perfect double feature with THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD, the iconic 1938 action-adventure classic starring Errol Flynn? And why does ROBIN HOOD play so much better today than a film made in recent memory?
