Give me your best 80's sword and sorcery movies!
There's a strange kind of captivating innocence about them. Watching them is much like reliving some old childhood adventure.
Sword and the Sorcerer. Albert Pyun's first and only good movie.
Not my favorite, but a guilty pleasure. A remake of Yojimbo set in barbarian era. The Chick with 4 tetas always makes me smile.
>Movies will never again be 90 minutes long with muscle-bound aryan heroes going on an adventure, saving a princess and then killing the villain along with a dozen of henchmen
>No sequels, no forced drama, no SJW bullshit, just pure fucking entertainment
Hawk the Slayer, it may well remain the best film I'll see this year.
My ONLY problem is that the movie covers too many plot points for its run-time.
There is enough in this movie to split it into Uther's fall and the rise of arthur, and then make a Quest for the Grail/green knight movie.
I really want a great Quest for the holy grail movie.
the Dark Crystal.
probably the best puppetry movie we'll ever see and Jim Hensons crowning glory. its not aged a day
I think LOTR has remedied this a bit, but it feels like we're going back into that territory that anything too "weird" for people to understand must be accompanied by loads of tongue in cheek irony and comedy so as to acknowledge that the movie knows it's weird.
I agree with you. I feel like an asshole even suggesting something like that, but I meant that in the movie released you could cut it into two movies. Maybe 20 minutes of footage of peasants and knights in armor milling around here and there to pad out the runtime.
Like I said though, its a MINOR MINOR MINOR complaint I have for an otherwise perfect movie.
Maybe also the actor for arthur. I can't help but seeing him as John from a Lion in Winter who is the opposite of a king arthur type.
