It’s not that it’s a particularly deep film with all of this hidden subtext. In fact, it’s a pretty straight forward film of swash buckeling adventure where true love conquers all and the heroes ride off into the sunset at the end. This film isn’t good because it’s wrapped in a crunchy shell of childhood nostalgia. It’s actually good. And when films are actually good, they’re very very hard to make fun of.
And here at the Fantasy Movie Podcast we’re all about making fun of things.
That’s the main reason why we put off podcasting about this movie. We tried to make a go of it this episode, and I’m not sure how well we pulled it off. How do you think we did listeners?
Thanks for requesting this film Sylvia!
