Jason and the Argonauts (1963)
This is an amazing classic!
The previous poster doesn't know what he's talking about. He seems to only be interested in women, and this being a film from 1963 isn't going to have the most exotic women doing raunchy dance numbers.
He also goes on to bash the story because Jason listened to Pelias' advise. But thats the way it was in the myth if my memory serves me right. Though, there are many discrepincies with the myth and the movie, this film is a gem. There are amazing special effects pulled off in this one; its a technical-wonder. This film is also way better than Harryhausen's last myth-made-movie, Clash of The Titans. See it for yourself and enjoy!
Better of the Roger Corman Sword and Sorcery Pictures
Well, first off you can't expect much from the man who produced the Deathstalker Series.. =) But this film I think is the better of the whole sword and sorcery films he's released.
The story is set in a slave town where two clans are at swords with each other to control the well and the people in this desert wasteland. The film circles the adventures of the Dark One(according to the box and creds, Carridine's character's name is Kain, which I don't want to call him. Its just stupid to name him the same thing from Kung Fu. He's only called the Dark One in the movie), who has stumbled into this town, and begins selling his skills as a swordsman to the higher pay.
The film is pretty decent, but don't expect Conan the Barbarian, or Beastmaster. The only two questions I have are:
Why doesn't Naja(Maria Socas) EVER put on a bra or a shirt? The whole entire film she is topless. At first I thought it was because she was a slave wench to one of the clans, but even when she was free, she still didn't put anything on.
If the Sword of Ura can cut through an anvil, why doesn't it chop through everyone's swords like a hot knife through butter?
Eh, oh well. Watch the film if you have nothing better to do.
