Saw it in the theater when I was a kid. Massively corny and cheesey yet the acting was not too bad.

Its one movie thats painful to watch yet I still love it. I think its one of the dumbest movies ever yet at the same time I kind of liked it.

part 1 of 11. (all parts are available)

The over the top comic book look of the movie is what they were shooting for.

I like the movie and it has been out on DVD for about a year.

I remember seeing it with my best friend. He was 8, I was 9, our moms dropped us off in that theater and watched a movie on the next screen over. Today they would be arrested for that

Some drunk redneck was sitting behind us making out with his girlfriend the whole time, and talking to the screen. Fun stuff.

+1

Flash Gordon is one of my favorite cheeseball scifi movies. Right up there with Barbarella....though at least Flash Gordon isn't tainted by the presence of Hanoi Jane.

I own the soundtrack, which is slightly better than the film.

QUEEN!!!! FTMFW!!!


One thing that I will always remember is going to see Queen in concert. Freddy Mercury put on a show that was so full of energy it was hard to believe.

LOL yeah. some was cheesey but they had some good actors in there.

Link Posted: 11/3/2009 4:44:22 PM EST
awesome cult movie! many late night theater parties, really drunk.
Link Posted: 11/3/2009 4:45:34 PM EST
The acting was terrible. The plot was paper thin. Etc, etc.

Who cares. It was a rockin' movie. I saw it when I was 8. My dad had the soundtrack, and Freddie Mercury was awesome. Whatever your politics, he was an amazing frontman, and the Queen sound for the movie was excellent.

Yeah, it's loaded on the iPod. It's always cool to hit shuffle, and hear the "Dun, Dun Dun, Dun, DUN, DUN, DUN, DUN!" as the song begins.

You can probably find it for $5 in the Walmart cheapo bin. Pick it up. Do it now!

For some reason, that's one of my girlfriend's favorite movies.

It is quite entertaining if you have good company and a bunch of Jack Daniels in your system!

(FLASH! UH UH!)

Just saying!!

Yup, one of my favorite cheese movies.

The BeeGee's/Peter Frampton "Sgt. Peppers" abortion was also one I can sit through like a trainwreck.

Good movie and the women were hot.

Early, pre-Bond flick for Timothy Dalton too.

I remember watching it over and over on HBO when I was a little kid.

Flash is SO awesome. I mean who better to save the Earth than a professional Quaterback from the NFL.

I mean come on the freakin Hawkmen had wings on their backs.

I watched it with my kids recently... I never realized how sexually suggestive it was.

Did anyone catch the phalic symbol crash of the ship towards the end? The one the looks like a giant cock that "penetrates" MIng and kills him?
Link Posted: 11/3/2009 5:10:44 PM EST
Decent campy movie.
Link Posted: 11/3/2009 5:25:21 PM EST
Man today's generation of kids dont know good cheese when they see it. Both my kids kept looking over at me while I watched it and I actually think they were wishing I wasn't their real dad. They HATED it.

They just dont get it.

Ming's daughter strapped down to the table was kinda suggestive too.

Good movie.

BTW it was meant to be over the top and cheesy.... that was the point.
Link Posted: 11/3/2009 6:22:09 PM EST
I forgot how hot Ming's daughter is.

One of my all time favorite yet very corny and overacted .Queen did a great soundtrack

I loved that movie as a kid! I even made that gunship Ajax out of legos!

Didn't see it in the theater but I did see it on TV and had part of the comic,I looked at it since I remember being told of the original in the 30's and I decided to have a gander.




It sucks so bad it's fun

Link Posted: 11/3/2009 8:30:25 PM EST
I haven't seen it in a long time but I do still like it.

The music is very kick-ass and the girls are very easy on the eyes.

Saw it in the theater when I was a kid. Love the soundtrack, LOVED Ming's daugher and the Hawkmen were badass! Saw it again a few months ago and couldn't beleive how corny it was. The soundtrack was still awesome, Ming's daugher got even hotter and my kids thought it was goofy. THIS coming from my daughters who watch Sponge Bob...He is kinda cool though
