Welcome to the third episode of the Personal Vault season of the podcast, where starting this week we're going "round-robin" to decide the movies, all of which weren't received well by critics, but were received well enough by us to end up in our personal movie collections. This week was Dylan's pick, which was the critically panned 1993 Disney edition of "The Three Musketeers. Like most Musketeer films, I'm not sure that Alexandre Dumas would have appreciated it that much. You'd have to read the book to understand. In any case, this film's all-star cast features the likes of Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, Chris O'Donnell, Oliver Platt, Tim Curry, and Rebecca De Mornay. Now just try and tell me that's not a cast you can sink your teeth into. If that's a thing people say about film casts
The Three Musketeers cost an estimated $30 million to make, and only made back $53 million in the United States. I could find no international box office numbers, but I did find release dates, so I concluded that I just suck.
Join us next week when we review 2003's "The Core".
Welcome to the eighteenth Patron's Choice podcast from our Patreon. This episode was originally uploaded on Patreon in April 2018. As might be apparent, this episode originally aired during our wrestling season. It may have been the "final episode" of that season, but I really can't find it in me to look that deeply into this episode today. I believe that, in this episode we describe the film as Vince McMahon's wet dream of how important he thinks the WWF/E was/is. Now, don't get me wrong, I love wrestling and WWE has been great at points, and to be fair this was during the "Golden Era", but I'm not sure how much that should count towards how good the film is. This film stars Hulk Hogan, Kurt Fuller, Joan Severance, and Tiny Lister. But let's be real, there is not a single star of this film.
No Holds Barred had an estimated $8 million budget, and made back $16,093,651 in the United States, which I suppose is fine, but surely not what Vince wanted. There was mercifully no release outside the states.
Join us next week for (finally) our Three Musketeers (1993) episode. (This Will Happen)
Next week we continue our journey into the vault, with 2003's The Core, starring Aaron Eckhart, Hilary Swank, Delroy Lindo, Stanley Tucci, Tchéky Karyo, DJ Qualls, Bruce Greenwood and Alfre Woodard.
