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???

πŸ˜‰

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!!!

  1. Yeah DS was and still is the best fantasy movie ever made. Lord of the rings though great was over played and was whatever. DS was what a fantasy movie/book should be, dark. I love how LOTR had to have over the top FX with CGI and such to accommodate a mediocre acting troupe. Where as DS had a list of nobodies and only one real (well not CGI as it wasn’t in existence as todays ways) FX model (the dragon kin). The rest were believable actors and of course mommy dragon. And for those old hardcore AD&D players, The main baddie was a fire breathing venerable red dragon. RED fing Dragon! Yeah it’s one of the top 30 movies I refuse to download but will happily buy at full price. great post
