    Just finished watching it again (seriously) and it brought back a LOT of memories from my misspent youth :rolleyes:

    So hammy and OTT, and sooooooooo much fun ;)

    The fluorescent 'magic' ping pong balls were particularly noteworthy...
    :lmao::lmao::lmao:


    What cinema/video/DVD sins will you lot own up to ?

    Keep it clean folks :nono: this is a family friendly forum...

    Warriors...come out to playyyayyy :)


    My guilty pleasures for old movies are numerous.

    Can't beat a good Western....Rio Bravo is right up there. My buddy and I once sat moored up in a boat watching it with another chap (lads weekend away). As we "spoke along" to the dialogue he looked at us and said "you're wierd" :)

    Creepy! we had an in depth conversation about this film today at the archery club (brought on by some speed shooting quip) and I was googling and youtubing clips for about 2 hrs earlier!

    Apparently there's a sequel

    And Shogun assassin...........

    Now I'm a bit freaked out!

    Soooo need to see them both again
    (although is there not a full series of the shogun assassin films?)

    Be afraid. Be very, very afraid...

    :)

    I'd heard there was going to be one but never really looked into it any further.

    You just can't have Hawk the Slayer (or any sequel thereof) without the legend that is Jack Palance...

    Yeah - they got even more mental as the various 'episodes' wore on though, with 6-guns mounted in the pram and, ...

    Best documentary I ever saw...

    :D

    No, that's the whole point. What makes it so entertaining is how bad it is :D

    Actually, scratch that. Go ahead and watch it - everyone should, at least once (once is probably enough for most folks)

    I'm not ashamed to admit that I have it on video.

    And DVD :D

    Bought, with real cash money no less, which I am given to understand is a novel proposition these days :rolleyes:

    There is only one film of this genre to watch - 'The Sword and the Sorcerer'

    1982 classic - utterly legendary film - no arguments!

    Any doubts - just watch the opening 5 mins:

    they made films of the deathstalker books :eek:

    I second Sword and the Scorceror though, I always remember that sword, three blades and the outside two could shoot off!
    With a dagger hidden in the hilt!
