Split Screen Podcast: Episode 50 – Comparing All The Cinematic Robin Hoods Ft. Allan Mott

Published by Shah Shahid on

Robin Hood is a character that I’ve always loved since a child. Ever since that Disney fox brought a swashbuckling swagger to the big screen, it’s something that influenced me even more so than the larger than life Bollywood heroes that I would grow up with on in life. So when I heard of a new Robin Hood remake, it gave me an opportunity to revisit many of my favorite Robin Hood movies, other classic Robin Hood remakes, as well as ones I didn’t know existed until my co-host referred them to me. This episode of the Split Screen Podcast is comparing all those various Robin Hood remakes on screen and seeing how they stack up against this new, superhero style version. Strap in!
