Flashback Thursday – Ator 2: The Blade Master

Ator 2 – The Blade Master Yes, there was a sequel made to the horrible Ator. Yes, Miles O’Keefe is back as Ator. and Yes, I’ve seen it 34 times. This is the plot synopsis straight from IMDb: In this sequel, the Fighting Eagle returns. This time he must save a former mentor from the evil Zor. Ator battles cavemen, invisible swordsmen, and barbarians with …

Flashback Thursday – Willow

Willow This one came out late in the 80’s and, to my recollection, is the only “fantasy” movie that Ron Howard has done so far. I liked this movie. It was fun and adventurous and the characters were likable enough. The plot is a little hammy, and you can sorta see whats coming next a mile away, but it’s still fun to see it when it arrives. This was done…

Flashback Thursday – Quest of the Delta Knights

Here’s a little known film (and if you’ve seen it, you’ll understand why) that was spoofed on the ever popular MST3K…Quest of the Delta Knights! I stumbled on this movie on late night TV years ago and noticed something that made me do a little research on IMDb. I noticed that in certain scenes, early in the movie, when they are showing the…

Flashback Thursday – Labyrinth

Labyrinth – 1986 Let me preface this post by saying I have never seen this movie while I was completely conscious. Every time I watch it, I’m half asleep and I wind up going in and out of consciousness while the movie plays. Now, having said that…being semi-conscious is the only way to watch this movie. And I mean that in the best possible way. Watching muppets…

Flashback Thurday – Ladyhawke

Ladyhawke – 1985 Rutger Hauer (one of the coolest names ever) stars in the this mid 80’s fantasy action flick with, of all people, Matthew Broderick. Captain Navarre (Hauer) and Isabeau (Michelle Pfeiffer) have been cursed by a jealous high priest to live separate lives forever. During the day she would transform into a hawk, a Ladyhawke to be exact, and at night he would…

Flashback Thurday – Red Sonja

Red Sonja – 1985 Oh my…what can be said here. Starring Brigitte Nielsen as the title character with a red mullet that was put all of Georgia to shame. It was like a hair helmet! Also starring Arnold Schwartzenegger as NOT Conan. Sure they changed his name to Kalidor, but we all know who he was supposed to be. Just because you couldn’t get the rights…

Flashback Thurday – Legend

Legend – 1985 Fresh off a string of successes, Tom Cruise stars in this fantastical tale of good and evil, of unicorns and goblins. If you can get past seeing ol’ Tom in a scale mail mini dress, you’re in for a really good movie. Directed by Ridley Scott, one of my personal favorites, this seems to have everything going for it. It has a sorta dreamy quality to it…

Flashback Thurday – Mazes and Monsters

Tom Hanks kills a Gorabill (?) I couldn’t actually find a trailer for this made for tv movie, staring Tom Hanks, so I posted a couple of my favorite Mazes and Monsters scenes. The first we find Pardue (Tom Hanks) wandering through Pequad Caverns in search of adventure when suddenly he is set upon by the evil Gorabill. This is the first time we see Robbie…

Flashback Thurday – Ator

1982 brought us a vast array of movies that would embarrass the academy awards, and Ator was their leader. This train wreck was difficult to even follow much less enjoy, but somehow I still managed to do just that. There is something about people off the street pretending to be actors pretending to be characters swing swords that sucks me in every time. This starred Miles O’Keeffe …
