I remember the first time I saw Krull.
I found this movie amazing. Terrible effect piled on top of terrible effect, crazy invented accents, but a story that still captures my attention 30 years later.
Times are tough over on planet Krull, and about to get a whole lot tougher. A young prince is to wed a young princess and bring peace to their two kingdoms when the Beast magically shows up in his space going Mountain, Slayers in tow, and screws it all up. The Beast kidnaps the princess while the prince has but one hope left. He strikes out to find THE GLAVE! Will the prince and his awesome gang of bandits, wizards and magical creatures be enough to save the girl and the planet? Duh.
I need a glave of my own.
