10.09.07DVD I figured since John Milius and Oliver Stone are gonna be in town this weekend I should brush up on the movie where they worked together. You know, when I put the disc in I was pretty sure I had seen this at least once as a kid but as I watshced I realized all this stuff was completely new (I guess my memories are of Conan the Destroyer or Red Sonja).

It's... not that good. I'm surprised by how basic it is. The pacing's all over the place and it's mostly slow and never really exciting. I did enjoy the sword chops with the awesome blood a lot and the music was so big and loud that it sort of became enjoyable because it was so huge. I dunno, I guess I was expecting a little more considering what a huge hit I seem to remember it being.
