I’d like to get my mind off current events, so I think I’ll watch an Eighties fantasy movie.

Which one would you like me to RE:View next?



Or this

Both films are underrated.

    “Legends” or “Clash of the Titans”? Personally, I would like to hear your opinion on both, but, if I have to chose, I would like to read about “Clash of the Titans”.

    Especially, since the “Clash” had two reboots/sequels told through a atheist viewpoint. Maybe in a compare and contrast style? The original is by far the superior version and its not close.

    Clash for me

    Tough choice, but Legend is pretty amazing. Ridley Scott creating another immersive world. Tom Cruise as an elf! (?!) And a legendary Tim Curry as the devil. What’s not to love? Plenty to pull apart, some cringe, and plenty of awe.

    Legend. Especially if you can compare it to the directors cut.

    I like the “butchered” theatrical version myself.

    Clash. It was Ray Harryhausen’s last film.

    Never seen LEGEND. CLASH was a favorite of mine on HBO as a kid since I liked Greek myths. Knowing how things go, CLASH is probably painfully bad to watch now but there’s at least boobs if I recall correctly.

      No boobs. Just a nice butt shot.

      Watch Clash then watch Jason and the Argonauts. Both are fun and you can compare early and late Harryhausen stop motion animation. Check. I’m tempted to find One Million Years B.C. and watch it too.

        “I’m tempted to find One Million Years B.C. and watch it too.”

        Aside from Harryhausen’s excellent work, you also get Raquel Welch (in her prime) in a fur bikini. Some childhood memories are more interesting than others.

    Hmm, tough call. I like both of those, but I vote to start with Clash.

    Clash. Never saw Legend. Satan was/is just too scary for me.

    If you want fun, watch “Clash” If you want to work, watch Legend. If you watch Legend, you really need to watch the directors cut.

    Clash. It was the first non-G-rated movie I ever saw in a theater. Haven’t seen it for years.

    Only watched the Theatrical Cut of Legend, so I can’t judge if it’s better than the Director’s Cut, although I do like the Tangerine Dream soundtrack. Both Legend and Clash are very traditional in their views on women, and piss off SJWs for this very reason. I would recommend Legend over Clash because its effects have probably aged better, and I don’t want to hear Harryhausen get roasted because he did an amazing job for the time. Stop-motion will never not look like stop-motion though.

    Clash of the titans is the better movie but the fxs are so dated that it might as well be a cartoon now. Labyrinth, if that is the first film, is good the way woody allen films are good. So FX: Murder by illusion 1&2.

      So it is Legend with tom cruise. That has to be worth seeing just because it seems so weird.

    Very different movies from very different times, “Clash” was early 80’s, adventurous and fun, “Legend” was late 80’s, a last gasp for hope before the collapse of the 90’s. Of the two, I’d choose “Legend” to review.

      Legend was 1985, hardly “late” 80’s

    Clash of the Titans. The special effects are actually “special” and are superior to the plastic unrealism of CGI so common in movies made today. That movie along with Flash Gordon (1980) are great entertainment because they had classically trained actors hamming it up, making these goofy flicks come alive. It was a neat movie that I must’ve seen 900 times on HBO.

    Clash of the Titans – sure, Tom Cruise is a bigger movie star than Harry Hamlin, but with “Clash” you get acting greats like Laurence Olivier and Maggie Smith slumming in an early 80’s fantasy flick. Burgess Meredith’s performance was a lot of fun as well. And need I even mention the gorgeous Judi Bowker?

    I vote for Clash. Personally, it seems more apropos at the moment.
    If we’re talking forgotten and under-rated ’80s classics, might I humbly suggest the film “Brazil?”

    Re: douglas, “Legend” was released here in the US in 1986 and I think in tone it felt a lot more late 80’s to me.

    The more I think about it though, I’d like to change my vote to “Clash of the Titans”, if I can do that.

    Legend. Although I’d love to see your review of the original Chronicles of Narnia movies as done by the BBC, not Disney.

    It was a close vote between Clash and Legend, but then blocks of Biden votes came in from several counties around 4am.

    1) Hawk the Slayer (Jack Palance)
    2) Excalibur (Liam Neeson, Patrick Stewart, Helen Mirren, Nicol Williamson)
    3) Red Sonja (Arnie)
    4) The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (Eric Idle)

      I’d add Krull to that list also with Liam Neeson in an early role. Plus the Glaive is a super cool weapon. I wasted many a quarter at the Pizza joint at the Landmark Shopping Center in Alexandria Va.
