Memron Review


Weak
Memron. It's not Enron. Right? This goofy mockumentary (which I'm guessing was largely improvised) tells the story of what happens to a group of workers after their once-mighty company falls apart. Blame greedy bosses all you want (Michael McShane is one "Ken Clay"), but one look at this collection of losers and you'll wonder how Memron ever could have stayed in business with them on the payroll. The film tracks their abortive attempts at therapy then switches gears when they decide to launch a company selling "bottled air." It's supposed to be clever, but by the end the film has pretty much fallen apart amid repetition and absurdities.

Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves Review


Very Good
I have to say that I probably have seen the parody of this film more times than I have seen the movie itself. Somehow, through quirks of fate (namely, a WPST-NJ promotion), I got a free copy of the tape of Robin Hood: Men In Tights and have put up with watching it time after time. So, in the sense of cosmic justice, I figured I should actually watch the movie that spawned the film that has given me so many laughs that it probably didn't deserve.

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is yet another example of Hollywood taking a famous story and making it Hollywood-compliant. In other words, the original story is still there in some bizarre form (he robs from the rich and gives to the poor), but we're missing Prince John, and Robin Hood's not speaking in a British accent. I can accept Robin Hood not speaking in a British accent if he happens to also be an animated fox (Disney's version, which took up some of my childhood hours), but when Kevin Costner takes a stab at it I just approach the entire movie from that point on with a sort of incredulity.
