Logic: 1, Magic: Big Fat Zero

Dust off the lances and saddle up your trusty steed, because The Flight of Dragons is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest co-host Chad “Winter” Clayton.

Review in a Nutshell:  With a narrative borrowed from several different sources, The Flight of Dragons gets by more on its weird visual aesthetic than on the strength of its story.  This film is another Rankin / Bass related emotional scar on my childhood.

This movie contains:

Evil Dragons.

Scary Wizards.

Everybody Dies.

Sean hates America.

It’s all magic fairy dust and pink sparkles here, because The Last Unicorn is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  The Last Unicorn is a beautiful and sophisticated children’s film that deals with some surprisingly complex themes.  Perhaps the film’s greatest weakness is the soundtrack, performed by America.

This movie contains:

Pirate Cats.

Unicorns in the Sea Foam.

I don’t care how many ‘bestiality’ jokes Sean makes, I think Lady Amalthea is pretty.


ERRATA:  Mia Farrow was actually in Supergirl not Superman; Peter Beagle is in fact still fighting for his residuals.
