How to ruin a classic
11 July 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Once upon a time there was a movie with witches and wizards who didn't walk on their knees and pretend to be a ugly and terrible actors, this was in the days of large movie studios who knew how to draft a plot, unfortunately the studio who made this had neither talent or money and was probably a Saturday drunken barbecue idea and just got together some leftover makeup, a couple of cameras and some funny hats from the fancy dress shop.

It had no consistent theme kept drifting about and throwing out ideas as to why things would happen, it was as bad as any east European drama from the deep dark days of the old communist regimes. I have tried to be constructive about this but it was so appalling as to be beyond all recovery. it is a waste of everyones time to have made it and anyone who would be as unfortunate as me to watch it, nothing to really discuss at all.
