That sounds kind of great in a crap way. I've heard the name but I don't think I ever heard anything about it before.

Palance hamming it up sounds fun. He seems to be no stranger to turkeys.

Electronic music? Wasn't a synth score also criticized in Ladyhawke?

Costner wasn't the only Yank in that Robin Hood. Christian Slater, Mary Elisabeth Mastrantonio, Morgan Freeman. As I try to recall the movie, I wonder if Alan Rickman wasn't the only Brit!


It's a fun watch as its so bad, even for the low standard of 80s S&S.

True about Robin Hood but at least the other actors made attempts at an accent. Costner was just himself. As he was in every other role, to be honest.

The synth score in Ladyhawke, while terrible, is miles above this score. This soundtrack is on the level of a bad video game from the 80s.

But the zany sound effects for everything are even better.
