Review in a Nutshell: Flaming swords. Rubber demons. Tia Carrere as an evil enchantress. Kull the Conqueror is an unrelentingly goofy but fun little barbarian film.
Awesome podcast us usual!
I appreciated the shout out for the Conan cartoon series. I re-watched the whole thing on The Hub cable channel and while it doesn’t hold up well the character designs are cool. They actually had a second cartoon series where Conan was protecting 3 heirs to a destroyed kingdom. None of the other charaters from the previous show were involved and its actually alluded to that Conan ate Needle between series.
I saw Kull in the theaters and remember not being to impressed with it. I saw all the Kevin Sorbo Hercules movies and was excited to see him do battle with a battle axe. I hadn’t seen to many movies where the main character weapon was an axe. I didn’t hate it, but thought it could have been better. Though thats really interesting to hear that the Kull movie is based on a Conan story and the Conan movie was based on a Kull story.
This movie isn’t very high on my watch list.
Truth be told I’ve never been a big fan of the Hercules/Xena shows. I did see the tv movie of Hercules vs Minotaur. I remember being unimpressed with Anthony Quinn as Zeus.
I was a big fan of the Hercules/Xena shows when they were on, and they should get some love for being the rare properties that show just what a$$holes the Greek gods were.
As for Kull, I’ve only ever seen parts of it, but I remember one of it’s weakness being Kevin Sorbo’s overacting. It worked on the Hercules/Xena TV shows because everyone was having a good time overacting on them, but it didn’t work here.
You know whats funny? I just saw that Ryan Gosling played Hercules on the Young Hercules tv show. Silly Canuck.
