The best in B-Fantasy film genre!

"My discovery of this film was nothing short of destiny.
Though I had passed it by many a time on the shelf of my favorite video store, never had I given it a second glance. It took the combined forces of my younger brothers' obsessive interest in Ren-fest period pieces and a complete lack of anything to do on Saturday night to bestow this gift of badness to us.
Before anything else is said, let me state with complete sincerity that I love of bad movies and it has always been my opinion that what makes the best bad movies is the complete and utterly unshakable belief on the part of cast and crew that what they are making is a good movie. It is this belief (which cannot be imitated) that actually does shine through in the final project and in so doing, creates (in its own way) a good-bad movie.
That said; the acting is (mostly) bad, the effects unspectacular, the plot unsurprising, the costumes range from decent to something you'd see in an old Star Trek episode , (most of) the sets lack texture, the sound is fairly decent throughout, the fight scenes are actually pretty good, and the cheese factor is powerfully compelling.
I've chosen not to point out any specific scenes or examples from the movie because I really want you to go in fresh and witness this magnificent gift of B-movie genius for yourselves.
However, with a word to the family oriented viewer, let me say the PG rating does give a fairly accurate description of what you can expect. Which means no nudity and very little profanity, but enough glimmering b-movie miracle power to keep most lovers of fantasy and sci-fi interested anyway ... what with the gratuitous violence and all.
And if the rumors I've heard about a sequel are true, I can't wait to go pick up a copy on purpose."
If you love "bad" films...

"This one tries hard. It really does. However, it falls flat. One actor; Jonathan Fuller AKA "Malthon" gives a stellar performance, and saves the film from the bin! He should get an award for his acting, but could it just be that his being surrounded by bad acting makes him look all that much better? Naw!
Good idea, badly pulled off. Maybe a rewrite and reshoot is what it needs. Not too bad if you're in the right mood, so if you like "B" movies, and you are in a forgiving mood...
Narrated by Charleton Heston and has a short scene with the lucious Musetta Vander. It's my opinion that you'd have to be an intoxicated festie after a five or six week run to love it. The swordfights look pretty good though, if a bit slow for the movies. ;)
A standard "quest" movie to save the world... (What else) from an ancient evil that is about to be unleashed by an evil sorcerer... You'll laugh, you'll cry, because you'll be bored to tears! (A dear friend of mine invested in it about a decade ago and lost his shirt... I bought a copy anyway. ;) Call me a glutton for punishment, as I've seen it about 8 times."
