Try to think out of the box! Great choice Steve!
Let’s see what Kim and Elwood thought of this movie:
Movies and Tea Podcast is all about looking through a director’s filmography, their most significant eight films to work on each season. Season 1 is all about Paul W.S. Anderson, a director who has been overlooked because of his involvement of what many people see as lackluster Resident Evil movies. However, he does have a lot more under his belt, quite like this swashbuckler movie we’re looking at this time, The Three Musketeers.
Compared to the other films in his filmography his “clock-punk” reimaginging of the classic Alexandre Dumas novel marked a noteable changeable of pace for Paul W.S. Anderson.
Critically panned on its release we take another look at the film to find out if the critics were too quick to judge what is arguable one of the more original adaptations of the popular tale. So come join us in the booth!
