Hey, how do you know who that guy is? He did stand out in the cast as being more, erm, accomplished than any of the others. They shot this thing in London and he was the only actual actor they could get? The 80s, man.
Aww, is there a Mystery Science Theater 3000 of this? I know there’s a Rifftrax, but I’m anti-Rifftrax. They miss the point of MST entirely, which is affection for these bad movies, not sneering at them. Boo, Rifftrax! Boo, I say!
Dragonslayer’s a weird one, isn’t it? For reasons you point out, I’m not ready to lump it in with the fantasy pap that followed Hawk the Slayer. It’s too legit an actual movie, as JoshL says.
That’s actually kind of a depressing read. The poor guy seems to think he’s going to get to make another Hawk the Slayer movie, when I suspect people have just been stringing him along. :(
Dude, Sandahl Bergman. I haven’t seen She, which I shall address forthwith, but Bergman made quite an impression on me when I managed to secure a copy of All That Jazz because I was such a huge Jaws fan that I had to see everything Roy Scheider was in. And then that famous sequence unfurled before my adolescent brain. Uhhhh…
Is this true? I need to re-investigate. I’m not sure I can take Matthew Broderick seriously as a fantasy hero. The one I also wonder about is Verhoeven’s Flesh and Blood. Is that junk? Or does it have some of the same Verhoeven Dutch weirdness of 4th Man and Soldier of Orange?
