Is this a futile quest? I've been exploring movies that I loved as an unbearded youth--Conan the Barbarian, Willow, Legend, and such--but none of them has really held up well, not even for laughs. Should I even bother revisiting Beastmaster, Dragonslayer, Red Sonja? Should I just concede that this particular cinematic genre is dead? Or should I just suck it up and learn to love the Hobbit? I don't know...

Red Sonja doesn't hold up. I was sad.

Deathstalker II is just as good as it was when it was released.

I was still tempted to buy the 2000 Dungeons & Dragons abomination for the hi-larious hijinks, but I was talked down from that particular precipice. If only Jeremy Irons had had someone in his life with similar foresight...

We were totally going to live-blog Deathstalker, but realized to our everlasting sorrow that no one would care. Heroes and fools are the same thing.

Also, the king guy is wearing some sort of crazy inverted stool on his head.

The shiitake per second rate is far too fast to keep up with.

"Oh, my god, I got that exact sword from Medieval Times." That's not even a joke, like really. I remember that hilt.

"Never take Mitt Romney to your orgy." Serious, what's with the old dude vicariously moaning?

Oh, crepe, Scott Baio and Anton LaVey just had a moment. That was kinda hot.

Are you watching the first Deathstalker? Is that the one with the wizard transforming his lackey into a woman and then he has sex with someone and you're like, hang on, exactly which audience is this scene for? And then you google it and find someone's male-to-female transformation YouTube channel and you're like, "Oh."
