Fantasy Monster Mash

199) Krull (1983) Dir: Peter Yates Date Released: July 29, 1983 Date Seen: June 24, 2012 Rating: 3.5/5

I rather liked this long, messy pastiche because, well, while it's hardly well-paced, I cared about the journey that the characters went on, even if I didn't care about the characters as such. And I liked the world that it's set in, even if it was knowingly forged from various archetypal fantasies. I guess I just liked the weird-ness of it all and thesense of adventure and wonder that the film had about it. If I had seen Krull for the first time as a pre-teen, not knowing what it was or what its reputation was? It would probably be one of my favorite films today.
