A bona fide B-movie masterpiece

"I'm not your enemy, Ming is! And you know it yourself. Ming is the enemy of every creature of Mongo! Let's all team up and fight him."

Flash Gordon, quarterback New York Jets, becomes intergalactic savior all to the tune of Queen's classic soundtrack. All I have to say is "Flash...Aaaaa...Savior of the universe!" Does it really get any better than that?
View all Flash Gordon reviews
Description: When the totalitarian planet of Mongo decides on a whim to obliterate Earth, it's up to the lunk-headed quarterback Flash Gordon and his oddball companions to make the universe safe for democracy. Based on the classic (and infinitely more reputable) comic strip and its '30s screen serialization, this cotton-candy-colored trash classic ... (more)

Top 10 Underrated Superhero Movies (10 movies items)

"Director: Mike Hodges Plot: A football player and his friends travel to the planet Mongo and find themselves fighting the tyranny of Ming the Merciless to save Earth. It might be a bit of a cheat to include this after its popularity skyrocketed following the release of Ted, but still, it remains a bit of a niche title. Flash Gordon is a fucking blast from start to end. It's hilarious, it's exciting, and it's even better if you have beer or weed while you watch it."

A bona fide B-movie masterpiece

“"I'm not your enemy, Ming is! And you know it yourself. Ming is the enemy of every creature of Mongo! Let's all team up and fight him."

Let's get this straight right from the beginning: Flash Gordon is awesome. Rich in '80s campiness, it's a cheesy blockbuster extravaganza full of hammy acting, side-splitting special effects, glorious non-sequiturs, fantastic music and some of the most unintentionally hilarious dialogue ever written for a motion picture. Debates will rage for centuries as to whether the filmmakers set out to make a serious movie or an intentionally campy flick, but regardless of the conclusion, Flash Gordon is a bona fide classic, a lavish '80s fantasy swashbuckler that's effortlessly entertaining from start to end. Based on the comic strip of the same name, the ” read more

"Princess Aura Princess Aura was the daughter of Ming the Merciless, the most evil tyrant in the universe. I guess it should come as no surprise that she is a sociopath, a killer, a double crosser, and vixen who manipulates men toward her own ends. And yet I would pick Aura over the pure and innocent Dale Arden any day of the week. I think anyone with a pulse would be compelled to agree with me. "

New-to-Me Films of 2012 (366 movies items)

"With its cheesy dialogue, dated special effects, and totally predictable plot, this film is campy and it knows it. Fortunately, it does offer good-natured entertainment, aimed toward those familiar with the comic and sci-fi fans in general. If only it were nearly as epic as its theme song, performed by Queen. "

Failed movie franchises part 2 (131 movies items)

" Note : Despite the cult flowing that the movie had, the movie didn't seem to make enough money to create sequels. I remember reading that the sequel was going to be set on Mars at one point. I enjoy Flash Gordon and I hope to see the character return to the big screen one day. "

" Okay, while I have a few listed here, the truth is, I don't usually go for campy movies. To me, most of the time, I see films using camp as an excuse to not have to come up with a plot. But, every once in a while, a movie will come along where, despite it's shortcomings in it's plot, the tongue in cheek aesthetics will strike the right camp chords in my heart. Or maybe I just like this movie b'cuz, as a kid, I have fond memories of watching the infamous S&M styled scene of Princess Aura gettin"

"Tähtien sodista innoitusta reippaasti hakenut (ja toisaalta sitä itsekin trilogian päätännälle tarjonnut) supersankarifilmatisointi, jonka toiminta on siedettävää ja tunnari aika legenda. Aihe ei toisaalta ole koskaan ollut lähellä heartiani ja liika tylsyys pilaa tämänkin esityksen suhteellisen taidokkaasti."

"Katsottu: 16.9.2011 Kyllähän se täytyy myöntää, että Flash Gordon on kaikessa camppeydessään mainio elokuva. Queenin musiikit ovat loistavia ja niitä kuullaan riittävän paljon. Etenkin loppupuolisko on hienoa audiovisuaalista tykitystä. Flash a-ah He's a miracle "
