I'm going to have a few on hand just to watch the trailer. I'm looking forward to the review--you may at last have found a movie worthy of your talents.

And I can totally believe the blog makes you a better teacher.

"I'm going to have a few [barf bags] on hand just to watch the trailer."

Really? So your saying Connery in a diaper is no challenge to your chastity? I think I can understand that :)

Heh heh heh--definitely not a challenge in that area, unless I go watch "Highlander" while waiting for the review.

And really, since this costume decision was so very Not Sexy, why did it get reprised by Sting in "Dune" as the blue winged g-string? Especially since the costuming in "Dune" was otherwise one of the only coherent parts of that movie? The only explanation I can come up with is that the directors were using the same mind-altering, judgement-impairing substances ('though in different amounts.

P.S. I watched the trailer, and it's even worse than I remember.

Oh, and be careful. I know your tolerance for awful movies is really, um, exceptional, but....If you come to any lasting harm from this, Deej and the gang over at the Sci-Fi Catholic will probably beat me to a pulp.

Actually, I've got a secret weapon that helps me get through films like this one which I'll probably bring up in the review.

Still, I expect a tough ride. I've only watched the trailer and yet throughout the day I've kept hearing "ZARDOZ! ZARDOZ SPEAKS TO YOU!" in my head.

I loved this one-It has all of the pretense of "Love Story" set against the bizarre antics of "Krull" with a little "Planet of the Apes" thrown in for effect.

Sean Connery traipsing around in a big red diaper? With a ponytail, no less! Who wouldn't want to see that? I wouldn't. Ever. Again.Not exactly Sir Sean's best work is it? But hey, I suppose digging up the dregs of the film industry is what we're all about here at BMC.

That preview alone...it just looks like the kind of bad movie that's so bad it has to be watched.

ZARDOZ! ZARDOZ! ZARDOZ!

It's just insanely hypnotizing isn't it?
