|10.09.07||DVD|| 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.
