Sooo… Pray Tell… What’s On Tonight??? “DRAGONSLAYER” (1981)

"DRAGONSLAYER" (1981) Stars PETER MacNICOL and RALPH RICHARDSON! It Also Boasts Another Oscar Nominated Score From A True Master In His Craft, ALEX NORTH (He Did "SPARTACUS" & "CLEOPATRA" To Name A Couple)!

DRAGONSLAYER

…Was One Of The Very First Films I Can Remember From My Early Childhood.

Actually, I Can Still Name All Of Those That Stand-Out From The Earliest Of My Days…

(I Promise Those Will All Eventually Come-Out In Future Bloggin'ings)

…And…

DRAGONSLAYER

…Is…

…One Of The MOST VIVID Within My Recollections.

It’s Pretty Wild What USED To Pass For Being Simply…

“PG”

…Ain’t It!?!?!

THOSE WERE THE DAYS, Fo FLIPPIN’ SHO, My Peeps!!!

“Some Material May Not Be Suitable For Children”

???

Really???

Which Parts???

OH…

…Like…

…The Nudity???

Or…

…The Stabbings???

Or…

…The Bloody Nibbling Of The Baby Dragons On The Princess???

Or…

…Perhaps…

…The Priest Getting TORCHED Before Your Eyes!?!?!

Nah.

Couldn’t Have Been Those Things…

…Right???

๐Ÿ˜‰

The Special-Effects Of…

DRAGONSLAYER

…Are…

…Simply…

…Totally…

…BOSS!!!

Trust Me, My Peeps, When I Say…

…Seeing This At Around Age 3yo?

Yeah.

I Was SURE That Dragon Was REAL AS SHIT!!!

Scared Me Like CRAZY!!!

And…

…Yet…

…I Watched This Film…

…And I Watched It…

…And I Watched And Watched And Watched It.

I Couldn’t Get Enough!

BUT…

…It Was TOTALLY SAFE!

It Was Just…

“PG”

…And…

…It Was Produced…

…By…

…Yep…

WALT DISNEY PRODUCTIONS

!!!

SO OF COURSE IT WAS SAFE!!!

Three-DECADES-Later…

…I’m STILL HOOKED!!!

Now THAT Is A Flick With LIFE…

…Or WINGS…

…Whatever Works Best For Ya…

…Fo Flippidy-Flip SHO!!!

MEAT LOAF‘s Hit Single “TWO OUT OF THREE AIN’T BAD” From 1977!

…But You’ve Been Cold To Me So Long…

…I’m Crying Icicles Instead Of Tears.

And All I Can Do Is Keep On Tellin’ You…”

MEAT LOAF!!!

“…I Want You…

…I Need You…

…But There Ain’t No Way I’m Ever Gonna Love You.

Now Don’t Be Sad…

And Just WHAT Is On NOW?!?! “LIFEFORCE” (1985)

"LIFEFORCE" Was Directed By Horror Favorite TOBE HOOPER, and Stars STEVE RAILSBACK, PETER FIRTH, FRANK FINLAY, and PATRICK STEWART!!!

INTERGALACTIC ALIEN VAMPIRES COME TO EARTH AND SACK LONDON?!?

You’ve Sold Me ALREADY!!!

WOOT!!!

Ah, Yes…

LIFEFORCE

…Is…

…An ’80s SCI-FI/HORROR TOUR DE FORCE FILM…

…That Has Just A Touch Of It All…

…And Comes Off As…

…PERHAPS…

…One Of The FINEST SCI-FI/HORROR FLICKS…

…Of The ENTIRE DECADE.

PERIOD.

And…

…Just To Put This Out There To Y’all…

OUT OF AFRICA

…Won BEST ORIGINAL SCORE Of 1985…

…At The 58TH Annual Academy Awards.

What SHOULD HAVE Won???

(Though It Wasn't Even Nominated)

Hands Down…

…By FAR…

…And FO SHO…

LIFEFORCE

!!!

The Score Was Handled By…

HENRY MANCINI

…Whom You Know Best As…

“The Guy Who Handled The Theme To THE PINK PANTHER.”

However…

…You Should Seriously Check-Out…

LIFEFORCE

…As I’m VERY SURE…

…You’ve Never Heard A Score Quite Like This One.

IT.

IS.

IMPRESSIVE.

FO.

FLIPPIN’.

SHO.

Don’t Believe Me???

Then WATCH And LISTEN, Foo!!!

(hehehe)

LIFEFORCE

…Was…

…One Of My VERY VERY FIRST DVDs.

I Purchased It In 1998, And Have Babied It SINCE!

It’s In (near) MINT Condition.

As Is The Other Copy I Have…

…ON LASER-DISC!!!

YES, My Peeps…

…You Read That Right!!!

I’m A True-Blue FANBOY…

…Of…

LIFEFORCE

…And Have ALWAYS Been So.

Perhaps…

…One Day…

…Y’ALL WILL BE, ALSO!!!

!!!

Perhaps.
