The wife and I are almost done watching the LOTR trilogy for the 300th time. We had to do it after seeing King Kong, just to figure out how jackson could do such a crappy job after his 3 great films. Kong easily ranks among the top 3 worst ever.

The trailers look good ... hopefully the film will live up to the trailers ...

I would love to see someone try and dress up a lion in a costume. Particularly on a day when the lion is not interested in wearing a costume.  :lol:

k... I'm passing on replying to that one! :)


Hey, it could've been the latest Narnia film... :lol:
(add that one to the list, tho')

err... skirting around mindless D&D minus Tolkien? Thief of Baghdad (1924/40), Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Excalibur, Jason & the Argonauts, MP&tHG, at least a double-bill of Miyazaki and Neverending Story to remind me to get back to reading some books! ;)

Yeah, and Braveheart gets filed under "Fantasy", too... ^^

Hehe, the Barbarians is great!

Here's another two:

The Viking Sagas with Ralf Moeller is an ok film.

Also no one mentioned Beowulf with Cristopher Lambert. It always reminds me of 3rd edition. Note that I like 3rd edition though... :-) I'd be interested to hear what others think of this one.

there is also the norseman - 1978 or 9 - bit average from memory

and i guess you have the myriad of Robin Hood films.....tho Robin and Marian was always my fave by a long way.

then there is flesh and blood - an old rutger hauer one.

you gotta say tho, there really is some dodgy stuff out there.

You want bad? I'll give you bad, but don't come crying to me that you had wiped this little turd of a movie from your mind and now I have brought it once more to the forefront of your nightmares!

Yeah, what was up with that? Not a chainmail bikini in sight, IIRC... :?

What no chainmail bikini?  How can this be?  Surely you jest?  Where would fantasy art be without the chainmail bikini?  :wink:

Damn.  I have a few Scottish roots, and really liked that film.

Mine would be Conan the Barbarian.  If you can't get a chainmail bikini, a tight thin leather one will do just as well.

Considering how manly she looked/acted, one would think she could pass at looking like she knew how to swing a sword. This was not the case. The chick from the 1st (and ONLY) Conan movie looked like she knew how to swing a blade, and she could wear a chainmail bikini.

And that little kid, how I would like to choke him, let me count the ways.

ahhh ... yes they chose well.  They wanted someone athletic so they chose a dancer.  It is small wonder then that she worked well to choreographed moves.  :wink:

WHY HAVE THE GODS FORSAKEN US? And while we're on the subject of being forsaken and woman in chainmail bikinis, does anyone remember that movie that came out either last year or the one before about King Arthur?

I saw it in the movies with my best friend and my nephew many, many moons ago. After the movie we walked home in the dark in silence. It was the first time our youthful naiveté had failed us in our attempted suspension of disbelief. We felt like we had been cheated.

The Gamers is awesome. Pick one up today. Low budget but that's beside the point.

Sinbad movies are fun...Harryahusen movies, overall, probably qualify. Rankin-Bass' The Hobbit is often overlooked. Thief of Baghdad is forgotten.

One I love of the mentioned:
Willow, Ladyhawke, Dragonslayer, Dark Crystal (got my niece watching it this weekend), Excalibur, Beastmaster and Brotherhood of the Wolf.

I don't care for Legend but Tim Curry's demon is devastating.
