Flash...Aaaaaaaaa!

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?

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 m... read more

Based on the classic (and infinitely more reputable) comic strip and its '30s screen serialization, this cotton-candy-colored trash classic ... (more)

25 From 80: My Favorite Films Of 1980 (25 movies items)

"Ming The Merciless is mad & in a mood to mess with the planet Midgard (...Earth). Okay, while I have a few listed here, the truth is, I don't usually go for campy movies. For the most part, I find many of the modern films of this kind see using their camp as an excuse to not have to come up with a good story. But, every once in a while, one 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, if I'm reall"

Total Film's 80 Greatest 1980s' Movie Moments (80 movies items)

"The Moment: Brian Blessed expresses his surprise that Flash Gordon has survived Ming's attempts to kill him. Only In The '80s: ...were kids' movies this kinky. Seriously, go and watch it again. If It Was Made Today: Brian Blessed would sue; after all, he has repeated his immortal line so often he probably thinks he owns the copyright."
