  1. I remember going to the theatre to see the movie. I didn’t particularly like the Queen soundtrack at the time, but I must admit that it has grown on me. I wish they had mentioned it in the Bohemian Rhapsody movie. Oh well.

      • I was looking at the DVD on the site of a certain online retailer and see that it’s often bought with Masters of The Universe. Fancy that. Customers rate both highly… (I thought Masters was pretty dreadful, so maybe I need to revisit that, too).

      • Interesting. I remember I hated Masters when it came out. Same as Judge Dredd with Sly Stallone – but when I watched Judge Dredd again recently I was surprised how cool some of the film actually is, and that it didn’t suck half as much as I believed it did back then, even though it still kind of sucked a bit.


      • Strangely enough I just read mastermixmovies post about Stallone’s Dredd. First time I’ve thought about it for a while. Anyhoo, like you I hated it. Can’t imagine watching it now… but maybe I’ll put it next to Flash Gordon on the revisit list.
