    I saw Robin Hood when my teacher brought it in for movie day in school. I hated it. I’ll never forget the inappropriateness of the bouncy, comedic Disney-esque music score playing along with the attempted rape scene. The movie completely failed to find any appealing or engaging tone whatsoever for its entire running time.

    Unfortunately I have a terrible memory of that awful Robin Hood movie too. I was nine and my dad was gonna take me out to a movie (The Rocketeer) for the first (and last) time. I was so excited it was gonna be just be me and my dad. Then last second he brings my d-bag sister along who decides we should see Robin Hood instead, he sides with her and I’m sitting there in the dark with tears in my eyes watching that awful movie. After the movie we went for ice cream and I was still crying and they both were laughing at me. Nice huh? The next day my mom the hero takes me via cta because she couldn’t drive to see the Rocketeer.

    I saw Dick Tracy, Rocketeer and Back to the Future III in theaters in 1990 and didn’t like any of them. They all had a blandness to them. Gremlins 2 wasn’t bland but it took a good story and turned it into a bad comedy. I liked Home Alone, Arachnophobia and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles better. My favorite movies that year, Die Hard 2 and Total Recall, I didn’t see until home video because they were R-rated. They also showed us Awakenings in school and I thought it was great. They tried to show us Dances with Wolves and I could barely stay awake through it.
