Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves: Special Edition (Dbl DVD)
Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Christian Slater, Alan Rickman, and Sean Connery star in this historical action-adventure breathing new life into the legendary, swashbuckling hero who defends the poor and battles the evil Sheriff of Nottingham in England's Sherwood Forest. After Robin barely survives a watery skirmish with Little John (Nick Brimble), the two become allies, and Robin joins forces with Little John's band of robber thieves, along with a philosophizing Moor (Freeman). The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song.]]>
Well, the battling Kevins are friends again. Director Kevin Reynolds and actor Kevin Costner have made three films together, and had several notorious battles--most memorably over the Waterworld debacle--yet they're together for a very enjoyable and congratulatory commentary track for this new edition of their film. Costner, as usual, is quite loose for the commentary and is even candid about his "dumb-ass accent." This new cut is 12 minutes longer, adding a few new scenes, mostly with Alan Rickman's Sheriff of Nottingham, including a key plot twist. Another commentary track with Morgan Freeman, Christian Slater, and the two writer-producers is also fun, although the creator Pen Densham meanders into deep meanings about his script that the actioner never, thankfully, adopted. The second disc is a lot of fluff that will only intrigue the young, including interviews and a TV special hosted by Pierce Brosnan from 1991. There are extensive notes on the history of Robin Hood and a gallery of production photos and weapons. Best are the eight selections of Michael Kamen's stirring score recorded in Dolby 5.1. --Doug Thomas

With the advent of Bluray, I've been far more discerning in my video purchases, replacing and adding only key movies and tv shows in my collection. This is one of them.
