Quick!

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.

Not my favorite, but a guilty pleasure. A remake of Yojimbo set in barbarian era. The Chick with 4 tetas always makes me smile.

I remember the first time I saw the princess. With those beautiful big eyes she looked like she came straight out of anime or something.

Too bad people today don't want earnest pulp. Pulp today must always be steeped in irony.

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.

Deserved a better franchise.

Bretty gud, even if the lead guy is pretty weak. The Queen soundtrack gave me feels.
Heard the sequel is shit though.

the Dark Crystal.

probably the best puppetry movie we'll ever see and Jim Hensons crowning glory. its not aged a day
>>
>>64670235
well thats what makes it an epic, trilogies werent a thing at the time. wait this was before star wars right? I feel what you mean though its jam packed.
>>
Flesh+Blood was pretty decent too, but mostly because based Rutger Hauer carries it.
>>
>>64670084
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.
>>
>>64670771
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.
