Flash Gordon Rocks!

flash gordon

I just watched the Flash Gordon flick from the 80s on the ROKU the other night and that shit holds up after 30 years because despite all the campy special effects and post-disco costumes the acting was great.

And the soundtrack from Queen was even greater.

Queen – ‘Flash Gordon Theme’

    dallas, can you tell us why timothy dalton doesn’t get his due respect as an actor? i mean, this, the bond films, the rocketeer, that texas rangers movie with dawson’s creek, and hot fuzz. why george lazenby get more love than my mans dalton?

    Dalton’s Prince Barin moustache was a crime, but I guess that reflected the crappy facial grooming of the early 80s. Dalton’s Bonds were cool too. I fux with dude (no homillz)

    Hah, BigNat I was just telling a friend I used to watch Star Trek re-runs on Channel 11… Kung Fu flicks on Channel 5… “King Kong,” ‘The Son of Kong” and “Mighty Joe Young” every Thanksgiving on Channel 9… I’d also catch bits of Dr. Who on Channel 9 but never really liked it, only saw because it was on before wrestling (before wrestling sucked: I’d visit relatives down south in Memphis or Dallas and be shocked how wild-ass their wrestling was in comparison to even good WWF then).
