On BBC ONE. Motherfucking watch it. NOW.
but I'm gonna go to bed soon. Apparently there's a scene where a bear can be seen wearing some trainers?
on a carriage with horses. This film rocks.
Disclaimer: My actual opinion on this may vary since I'm stoned. G'night.
I am struggling to think of anything that could possibly be better than that. I need to see this film.
three or four years ago.
It was only £1.99 with free delivery on Play too; within a month of the first copy appearing in our common room it had sold out.
The first 45 minutes are the best (as in the most hilariously bad), up until the bear fight. The middle is just incredible dull, until the final 15 minutes with the chariot race.
It's worth sitting through the whole thing just to see the guy drop onions onto that leopardskin-clad guy's hotdog with accompanying "squee!" sound effect.
The cheeky gits.
I love the new cover, though. Especially the explosion, when there aren't any explosions in the actual film.
The fight at the end takes place in a box factory. The only other time that happens is in spoofs of rubbish action films.
It really is an incredible piece of shit.
The old cover was better. He was posing with his muscles.
- The traffic noise in the background of Mount Olympus.
- Some of the gods have Roman names, some Greek.
- Arnie's terrible accent.
- "A fine chariot, but vere are ze horses?!" (This makes no sense in context within the film either).
- Pretzy, who seems to have been hired straight off the streets.
- ... "Put that discus down!"
- The flexing of pecs at every opportunity, sometimes with sound effects in time.
- THE BEAR! (It's a man in a monkey suit) (Arnie beats the shit out of it)
This is only ten minutes of selected scenes. Imagine AN HOUR AND A HALF OF IT.
I need to know.
bit is the fight at the very beginning when he gets off the ship. One guy obviously just falls over when that log is thrust in his direction but doesn't get within two feet.
Also, the long jump contest is amazing and when that posh guy says to Pretzy 'TEA! The conventional social drink'
I've seen this film far too many times.
But it's not even the best bit of that scene.
I saw it.
Poor Arnold. I felt so sorry for him.
