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.

The Hobbit, by Rankin Bass, was a big influence on me.  

   I happened to catch it on TV back in 1977.  Imagine my shock when a stupid childrens' story turned out to be about dragon-slaying, war and darkness in the (demi-) human heart!  I was impressed, to say the least.

   The Hobbit TV production led me to The Hobbit book and that led to LOTR and that led me...here.

    The Return of the King...the Rankin Bass conclusion to the stinker first effort at an animated LOTR...was also an excellent production.

    I own a copy of the Rankin Bass version of The Hobbit and I watch it from time to time...still pretty good after almost 30 years.

has anyone ever seen Ralph Bakshi's "Fire & Ice" ? thats a great animated film, done pretty much in the same vein as he did the Lord of the Rings.

very hard to get hold of too.

I bought it at a convention one year and made the mistake of not watching it until the circus left town. It was unwatchable from a tape-quality point of view.

Why yes. Yes I would. The fight scenes were cool, IIRC, until the woman starts to fight. Ugh! I'd rather watch reruns of Xena, Warrior princess.

Wizards was very cool.  Saw it in 5th grade and I still watch it from time to time.  IMHO it is much better than Fire & Ice.  Of course the new Fire & Ice DVD has the extra "Painting With Fire" DVD included which is pretty awesome.

Wizards - God saw that when it came out in the theaters in the 70's.. Still love it.

Fire & Ice- Guess what I have to buy now.

The Hobbit - Ye haw , Richard Boone as the voice of Smaug.. Great movie.. I also happen to love the animated LotR.. :oops: ... God will smite me I'm sure.

I have an affinity with really bad sword and sorcery movies that I love to collect. My wife gives me some really ugly looks on the weekends when I break the out  :twisted: .. Of course I get the same look for the Godzilla movies as well come to think of it.
