Random(‘ish) Movie Mention: “REIGN OF FIRE” (2002)

Sooo…

…Hmm…

…What Can I Say Here?

MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY

(In One Of My Favorite Parts For Him (As It Does NOT Fit-In With The Rest Of His Body Of Work))

…And…

CHRISTIAN BALE

(Being His Usual Brooding AND Sexy Self (Post-"AMERICAN PSYCHO" And Pre-"BATMAN BEGINS"))

…And…

GERARD BUTLER

(Before Anyone Actually Knew Who He Was (Unless They Were ME And Had Already Seen "DRACULA 2000"))

…Are Goin’ BALLZ To Da WALLZ Against…

…A HORDE OF FIRE-BREATHING DRAGONS!!!

BOOYAH, BABY!!!

BOOYAH, INDEED!!!

REIGN OF FIRE

…Didn’t Honestly Get The Grand Reception I Had Originally Anticipated.

I Really Thought Folks Were Gonna Eat This One Up AND Love It.

πŸ˜€

Instead…

…They Mainly Just Chewed It Up AND Spat It Right Out Again.

😦

BUT WHY?!?!?!

To ME…

REIGN OF FIRE

…Was A Helluva Flick!!!

Action.

Adventure.

Fantasy.

FIRE-BREATHING DRAGONS.

In Other Words…

…FUN FUN FUN!!!

Come On, Peeps!!!

WHY DIDN’T YOU LOVE THIS FLICK???

Was It NOT Cool Enough?

Was It NOT Hot Enough?

Was It NOT Not Enough?

Hmm.

I Dunno.

What I DO Know…

…Tho…

…Is That I LOVED IT!

I Saw It In The Theater, Actually.

And THEN…

…I Saw It In The Theater AGAIN!!!

Do You Know What It Takes To Get ME Into The Theater TWICE To See ANYTHING?!?!?!?!

EXACTLY!!!

It Takes A WHOLE HELLUVA LOT, My Peeps, Fo SHO!!!

REIGN OF FIRE

…Was A WONDERFULLY FUN FUN FUN FLICK…

…And I Sincerely Feel It Got A Bum-Rep For NO GOOD REASON.

Care To Debate This???

Fine.

Go Ahead.

Debate Until You’re Blue AND Purple In The Face.

It Ain’t Gonna Change MY Tune, That’s Fo DAYUM SHO!!!

πŸ˜‰

So…

…Pretty PRETTY PLEEEEEEASE, My Peeps…

…Give…

REIGN OF FIRE

…Another Chance.

It May Not Win You Over.

I Grant That.

BUT…

…It IS Better Than Most People Have Ever Given It Credit For.

REMEMBER, Kiddies…

…Movies Like This One…

…Are Made For One Major Reason…

FUN

FUN

FUN!!!

So…

…GO HAVE SOME, WHY DON’T’YA!!!

I’ll Wait Right Here Until You Get Back.

Maybe.

  1. Now you, I like! I have no idea why Reign of Fire never got the respect it deserved. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen it. I own it and yet if I see it on tv I can’t pass by without stopping to watch. As you said, what’s not to like? Bale, McConaughey, Butler (as a good guy and with his original accent. Marvel at the way he says “throat” with four syllables!) and DRAGONS! The Star Wars sequence alone is worth a watch.
