I think I might have to revisit Flash Gordon, the 1980 version. I was just a few years old when it came out, but I saw it in the theatre...I remember that much. Along with the fact that everyone seemed to be dressed in red...a whole lot of red. It's funny what you remember. I wasn't taken with it at the time, but it actually got great reviews.



"New York football star Flash Gordon vaults into outer space to battle the nefarious Ming, supreme ruler of the planet Mongo. Ming intends to conquer planet earth, and hunky Flash teams up with several of his daring female admirers, as well as the brilliant Dr. Zarkov, in an effort to thwart the monomaniacal evil-doer. Features a fun score by rock group Queen.".

Flash Gordon is bad, but it's a good bad film, in my opinion. It's, for lack of a word I better like, fun. And the soundtrack is awesome.

That's good enough for me.

Your assignment, then, is to indeed watch it and then let us know your thoughts. Please.

I'll shout "Atomics!" in your honor.

We may watch Tron for our next movie night, too.

Please do. Tron cracks me up. I love David Warner, though. Wow, anyone in here seen Time Bandits? Warner plays Evil. I love that film, but I know few others that do, too. Damn it.

And Jeff Bridges gets sucked into a computer. David Warner cracks me up, especially in his 3 Trek appearances.

"How many lights do you see?"

Certainly...mission accepted. Just the poster, alone, is making me want to rent it. Flash kind of looks like a Wayne Gretzky on steroids, holding a giant hockey stick of motel metal. Very Canadian.

I bet it's fun, as you say...and the Queen factor.

Man, I haven't seen that in ages! I loved that movie. If I recall, there was a dark element to it, as well, beyond the amazing effects. "Sucked into a computer" sounds about right.

I'm sure "motel" metal is equally tough, all you motel owners out there.

Sorry to actually talk about something on topic, but that Gotham Knight DVD came out today (essentially the Batman version of the Animatrix). Reading some of the reviews on Amazon, sounds like the animation is great but some of the stories are mediocre. Regardless, I still want to see this.

Yeah, can we get back on topic. I'd really like to know what everyone thought of the movie. I know it's not out yet but surely there must be some early reviews.

And Kevin Conroy from The Animated Series' back as the voice of Batman. Hopefully I can check this out before the movie.

Why is Maggie Gyllehan a movie star to begin with? She's not really attractive and it doesn't really make it believable that Bruce Wayne would want to compete with Harvey Dent over her.
