Who loves Flash Gordon? Who wants to see him in more comics or another movie and why? what would the premise be? Did you like the theme song by Queen?
@Iron Apollo: @joshmightbe:
Some guy who commented on a Youtube vid playing the opening of the movie had this to say, and I think it might be true:
"The key to understanding this movie is this: I think everyone involved KNEW they were making a turkey, so they decided to have fun with it. They came up with an over the top tongue in cheek script, the most improbable cast possible, and music from Queen. If you're looking for "serious science fiction", even by Star Wars or Star Trek standards, you've come to the wrong place. But if you're looking for a fun way to kill a couple hours, with lots of quotable dialog, this may do the trick!"
I just watched the movie for the first time, and MAN it was cheesy as hell!! Here are my thoughts on it, counting down:
4. The SPFX weren't as good as those of the 1978 Superman, but WAY better than any shlocky action or sci-fi film from before 1978.
3. The score by Queen helps redeem this film--but only by a little.
2. The actors were all hams: Sam J. Jones (honey-cured), Melody Anderson (maple-glazed), Chaim Topol (Kosher cured), Brian Blessed/Timothy Dalton/Peter Wyngarde (Wiltshire cured), Ornella Muti and Mariangela Melato (prosciutto crudo), and Max Von Sydow (Jul Skinka cured).
1. This movie was so CHEESY AS HELL, it was fun to watch.
I give it 2 and 1/2 stars.
I also, a few weeks ago, saw Filmation's "Flash Gordon: The Greatest Adventure of All", and I have to say--it's a tad better than the movie.
