  1. What is the name of the guy which nc called: “the biggest douche in the universe”

  2. I have to say, the concept behind this (the idea that what appears to be a fantasy story would open up into a sci-fi tale) is pretty interesting, and has not been well explored elsewhere. Too bad they made such a mess of it.

  3. This is a ok movie
    You clearly hate children
    Creepy and they are fun cause of that
    The posterior scene was very fun. Well she has a fine made ass
    The other guy did got hit it was just cut for some reason
    Him do you not know what genders is she is a she not a he

  4. Actually I’ve seen this movie as a kid, just after Star Wars ep.1 (and somewhat before ep. 4-6), when I was still convinced that all the cool things are always repeated in as many stories and media as it gets. (Uncool things are repeated too, and, well, everything is always repeated everywhere.) So, it was a nice assurance that swords in space are really cool.
    And that brings us to the revelation I’ve kept ever since those times:
    this epic legendary half-lightsaber sword by the other half is just like in Lin Carter’s Thongor at the End of Time.
    Yeah, like this, mostly just a hilt with a blade appearing when the hero needs to fight something, and at last it turns out to be a practical metaphor for courage and ~you weren’t really needing even the hilt all this time~ routine.
    Or it could be just a coincidence. =)

    Ah Star Wars ripoffs. My favourite part of ’80s sci-fi.
