    I kid you not, the novelization of this is in my bathroom right now. It's by Alan Dean Foster.

    It's uh, on par with the quality of the movie. Yeah, let's say that.

    Ergo The Magnificent...the name doesn't begin to describe his awesomeness. Even though I can only remember David Battley in one other film--Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory--I think of myself as a fan. Short in stature, tall in power, narrow of purpose and wide of vision, for me he made what was an otherwise forgettable summer film memorable. Every few years I watch Krull again...and every time I'm tempted to just fast forward through all the non-Ergo parts.

    Oh man, I had such a crush on Lysette Anthony as a teen.

    And the fate of the Cyclops brings a tear to my eye to this day.

    Even if an entire generation's concept of what a "glaive" should look like has been horribly skewed...

    Best movie EVER about the power of arranged marriages.

    Seriously, go back and watch it. Somehow, the arranged marriage of the protagonist and the girl allows them to have a super power that kills Krull at the end.

    Political love conquers all.

    Yeah the Krull arcade game was awesome and trippy, with those Robotron and Defender style cycling rainbow colors. I can't even remember if I saw the movie, but man I loved this game!

    And for @wishlish here's the Atari 2600 version, didn't even know there was one!
