VIDEO: MOVIES: REVIEWS: Dragonslayer (1981)
This movie seemed kid of old and random. A lot of it fell flat. I guess this is why I don’t like older movies.
I probably would have liked this a lot when it came out, and if I’d seen it in the 80’s, nostalgia might have made me like it more now. But it was actually barely likeable.
Parthena: 2/5 stars, 5/10. “Some parts were funny, other parts that could have been either epic OR amusingly horrible were a bit…flat.”
Eli: 2/5 stars, 5/10. “I got my kicks out of kinda ripping off lord of the rings and I think
star wars, but all in all not amazingly well acted or cut together.”
Clint: 2.4/5 stars, 5.4/10.
Carolyn: 2.7/5 stars, 5.6/10. “I agree it wasn’t all that spectacular.”
Native rating: 3.5/5 stars (which was also Netflix’s guess for us), 6.6/10.
Peter MacNicol – the “weasel” from 24, Ally McBeal. So annoying! Not quite as annoying here, but I just kept screaming “WEASEL!” every time he went on the screen.
Valerian and Tyrian? Both actors who play them are now dead…

WAR IN AFGHANISTAN: Taliban will rule Afghanistan again, says leaked US report
And once again, the truth comes out: Like every nation to ever invade Afghanistan in the past 150 years, we will leave without significantly changing anything.
Obama’s not stupid, had to have known this, sent in more troops than Bush ever had, and did so after promising to end our unnecessary Bush-era wars. But instead we had more troop deaths under Obama, and lost tons of tax money fighting a fight that made no real difference. Bin Laden wasn’t even found there!
POLICE STATE: Man imprisoned for 2 years without charges
2 years in solitary confinement without seeing a court date, having to pull your own tooth yourself?
Does that sound like Saudi Arabia? North Korea? Turkey? Iran? Nope, that’s America.
People – don’t tell the government you think your friends are suicidal. They are not your friend in that situation.
(Remember the suicidal guy on the edge of a bridge that they tased off into the river? Or the suicidal guy who was going to stab himself that they shot to death?)
The police are NOT here to help us anymore.
POLICE STATE: British tourists arrested in America on terror charges over Twitter jokes
Don’t you dare use British slang for “party”, or quote “Family Guy”!
Our tax dollars will be spent on fucking with you.
I wish one day could go by where something didn’t make me increasingly ashamed to be an american.
