The Basic Plot Outline Is Best Described As Such, Via IMDB:

In this update of the 1930s comic strip, Flash Gordon is a football hero who is skyjacked aboard Dr. Hans Zarkov’s rocketship along with beautiful Dale Arden. The threesome are drawn into the influence of the planet Mongo, controlled by Ming the Merciless. Ming has been testing the Earth with unnatural disasters, and deeming it a threat to his rule, he plans to destroy it. He also intends to take Dale as his concubine. Flash must avoid the amorous attentions of Ming’s daughter and unite the warring kingdoms of Mongo to rescue Dale and save our world.

Now…

…I Don’t Know About The Rest Of Y’all…

…But I’ve Always Found…

FLASH GORDON

…To Be An Absolute BLAST!

It’s A “B-MOVIE” On A VERY Grand Scale!

Released In 1980…

FLASH GORDON

…Has Become A TRUE Cult-Classic.

I Can Name A Handful Of Folks Who Truly Do Love This Flick…

…Though…

…I Admit…

…I Can Name A Helluva Lot More Folks Who Truly Despise It.

But Hey…

…What’Ya’Gonna’Do…

…Ya Know?!?

๐Ÿ˜‰

If There’s Anything I Can Say About It…

…It’s That I’ve Never Shied Away From Professing My Love For It.

FLASH GORDON

…Was…

…Is…

…Always Will Be…

…A Personal FAVE-FAVE Of ALL-TIME…

…And There’s Simply No Getting Around That.

I Grew-Up Watching It.

My First Copy Was One I’d Taped Off Of TV…

…And I Wore That Bastard Out!

But…

…I’ve Had A Copy…

…In One Form Or Another…

…Throughout The Bulk Of My Life.

๐Ÿ˜€

While I’m Not Sure If It’s The Cheesiest Flick Of All-Time…

…It’s Certainly In The Top 10!

So…

…It’s Only Par For The Course That I Would Have A Special Bond With It.

(teehehehe)

Agreed?!?

AGREED!!!

๐Ÿ˜‰

As One Friend Of Mine Has Said Many Times To Me…

"It's CRAP-TASTIC, DUDE!"

๐Ÿ™‚

Now Who Could Argue With THAT?!?

Exactly My Point.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh…

…And Just So You’re ALL Aware…

…The Name Of My Fantasy Baseball Team…

…Yeah…

…It’s…

FLASH GORDON EXPRESS

!!! !!!! !!!

So…

FLASH GORDON

…May Not Be An Academy Award Winner…

…And…

…It May Be One Of The Cheesiest Flicks Of ALL-TIME…

…But…

…It Remains Part Of My Life…

…And It’s (likely) The Guiltiest Pleasure I Harbor.

I. LOVE. FLASH. GORDON.

PERIOD.

And No Amount Of Dissing On The Parts Of Others Has Ever Been Able To Change That.

LOVE IT.

HATE IT.

WHATEVER.

IT’S STILL A FAVORITE!

In Fact…

…I Think I’m Gonna Watch It Again NOW!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

Hope Y’all Are Enjoying Your Weekend, Thus Far.

You Know Me, My Peeps…

…I’m Pluggin’ Along As Best As I Can.

I Haven’t Been In A Very Good Mood, That’s For Sure.

BUT BUT BUT…

…I Have The Sneaking Suspicion That…

FLASH GORDON

…Is Going To Save MY MOOD While He’s Saving THE EARTH!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

“CASINO ROYALE” (2006) Starring DANIEL CRAIG As JAMES BOND -007… …Brilliance In Motion.

I’d Totally Forgotten How Wonderful This Flick Is.

In Fact…

…It Totally Trumps The Entire PIERCE BROSNAN Series Of Films.

CASINO ROYALE

…Is One Of The BEST BOND FLICKS Since…

LICENCE TO KILL

…And That’s Saying A Lot.

I Simply LOVE…

LICENCE TO KILL

…And It’s One Of My All-Time FAVES From The BOND FRANCHISE.

I Consider It THE MOST Underrated BOND Flick.

Period.

Now…

CASINO ROYALE

…Is A Reboot.

It Takes JAMES BOND (DANIEL CRAIG) From His First Kill, All The Way Through, What Turned Out To Be, An Exceptional Adventure.

Once I’m Done With This One…

…I Plan To Watch…

QUANTUM OF SOLACE

…Which I ALSO Considerย  An Exceptionally Underrated BOND Flick.

What Are YOU Watching Tonight, My Peeps?!?!

Anything Worth Mentioning?!?!

I Sure Hope So!!!

Bring On The BOND, My Peeps!!!

Bring On The BOND!!!!!!!

(Not So) Random Movie Mention: THE LION IN WINTER (1968)

“THE LION IN WINTER”

… … …

Okie The Dokie, My Peeps…

…Here’s The Skinny.

I Don’t Honestly Know How Many MULTIPLE Times I’ve Seen This Flick.

Dozens…

…Perhaps?

The POINT Being…

…It’s A Large’ish Total.

And I VERY SINCERELY Have Felt…

…From The Moment I Found-Out…

…That THIS FILM…

“THE LION IN WINTER”

…Was THE FILM…

…Where Acting Favorite…

PETER O’TOOLE

…Was ROBBED ROBBED ROBBED…

…By “The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences”ย MOST SERIOUSLY.

Period.

If You’ve Not Seen This Film…

…O.M.G!

“THE LION IN WINTER”

…Is…

…BY FAR…

…One Of THE MOST Professionally Acted Films…

…In THE HISTORY Of Films.

Period.

PETER O’TOOLE

…As…

“King HENRY II”

…To ME…

…Give US…

…HIS WOW-BANG-ZOOM…

…TOUR’DE’FORCE…

…PERFORMANCE To End All PERFORMANCES.

BIG PERIOD.

Now…

…Remembering What I’ve Just Said To You…

…Think About The Rest Of This Cast.

KATHARINE HEPBURN

…As…

“ELEANOR Of AQUITAINE”

ANTHONY HOPKINS

…As…

“Prince RICHARD”

JOHN CASTLE

…As…

“Prince GEOFFREY”

NIGEL STOCK

…As…

“WILLIAM MARSHALL”

…AND AND AND…

TIMOTHY DALTON

…As…

“King PHILIP II Of FRANCE”

!!!

YES, My Peeps.

“THE LION IN WINTER”

…Was…

…Truly…

…ACTED BY PROFESSIONALS.

KATHARINE HEPBURN

…DID Get Her Oscar For This One…

…Though She Had To SHARE IT With A Woman Who CAN’T ACT.

(SIDE NOTE: No, I Do NOT Like Barbara Streisand)

But Knowing…

PETER O’TOOLE

…Has NEVER Received A TRUE Oscar…

…And Having SEEN This Film So Many Times…

…It Was Likely The Hardest Pill To Swallow For The Man.

I’ve Seen All FIVE Nominated Performances For That Year…

…And Can EASILY Say…

…HE GOT ROBBED ROBBED ROBBED!!!
