You may be one of the best movies I’ll ever see in my life (and I’m being serious), and it’s your birthday this Sunday. That’s reason enough for me to break out my Blu-Ray copy and watch it all over again.
On December 5, 1980 the USA got its first taste of Flash Gordon the movie, a sci-fi, pulp, kitsch, camp epic that was a complete homage to the source material. It also introduced us to the wonderful acting career of Sam J. Jones (snicker) as Flash Gordon himself. C’mon, you can’t go wrong with a movie that has Brian Blessed, Max Von Sydow, Topol, and Timothy Dalton in it, with a soundtrack that is powered by Queen.
