I remember watching Speed Racer as a kid and making fun of how Speed was constantly yelling "AAHH!! WOAH-OAH!!!" Why race cars if it frightens you so much? Speed's yelling stood out because no other cartoon characters did this - not Wacky Races, not Jonny Quest. But all that's changed now. AAAAAH!!
I have boarded chase sequences and pleaded with directors to not have the characters screaming "Whaa--aaaaH!!! Woaaahhhh! YAAAAAA!" They never listen. But I am right. There is nothing - NOTHING - entertaining in watching someone in peril hollering nonstop. There MAY be entertainment to be had in hollering at the right time, but when it is nonstop it loses all impact and just becomes a big sound crap. So stop.
The Robin Hood sequence was great because it resolved the story succinctly. You came away satisfied the villain got his comeuppance while providing large scale action. Erich Korngold's score is brilliant, and you can listen to it unencumbered by characters screaming "AAAAAAHH!" Why Chauncey identified this sequence as a source of inspiration, then completely ignored what made it great, is a mystery to me. Maybe what he meant by it being a tight sequence is that it was a sequence done in tights.
Live action films are just as guilty of superfluous screaming, but I don't work in live action. Please, PLEASE, colleagues, lay off the screaming. More score, less "AAAAHHH!!!"
