It's not that I have only KC movies - no, I have a collection of 61 other DVDs and 90 VHS. More importantly, my WISH LIST is hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of movies long! Maybe thousands, actually. LOL! So I like a lot of different movies and actors, from the past and in the present. The first movie I ever saw of Kevin's was Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves. I belonged to Columbia House Movie Club (still do) and I had neglected to send back the selection card and got the movie in the mail. (Don’t have to mess with those selection cards anymore.) It wasn't one I would have ordered because I knew nothing about it or him but since it was my mistake I kept it and paid for it and I watched it. Well, it became one of my favorite movies from the first time I watched it! It doesn’t matter whether Kevin had an English accent or not - I LOVE THIS MOVIE!! And the scene after the Sheriff and witch are killed, Robin and Marian come together and she says, “You came for me” and he says, “I would die for you”, well, that’s my favorite scene! And the theme song, Everything I Do (I Do It For You) became my most favorite of all my favorite songs. (And I have a LOT of favorite songs!!) From that point on I wished I could have a man in my life who could say the words of that song to me and mean it!!! In searching the internet I’ve found that there are many others who love this movie and song just like I do. According to Wikipedia:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everything_I_Do,_I_Do_It_For_You
It spent seven weeks at number one in the United States Billboard Hot 100, sixteen consecutive weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart (the longest in British chart history), and nine weeks atop the RPM singles chart in Canada. The song’s been recorded by at least 30 other artists. According to Box Office Mojo: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=robinhoodprinceofthieves.htm
The movie had a Domestic gross of $165,493,908 and a Foreign gross of $225,000,000 for a total of $390,493,908. Impressive! Clearly I’m not the only one who loved it!! I can’t help but wonder what the sales and rentals netted. I have both the VHS and the DVD Extended Version. It can sometimes still be seen on TV. This is a very good link to check and see what Kevin Costner movies are going to be on:

How can this be? How can they give away a movie that should be paid for? This must be illegal but is rampant! And some of them are now using the word “safely”. Hmm…! I have to wade through pages and pages of all these download links just to find the true blogs!! If I could have my wish these illegal download sites wouldn’t exist at all!!
I have a lot of wishes………
