    Dragons are cool. Sean Connery is cool. Sean Connery as a dragon? WOW! It's just too bad THAT couldn't save the movie.

    Oh and I hear Issacs is looking forward to HP7. That should be good! Another good Nchick!

    Just Sean Connery's voice is enough to at least make a mediocre film memorable.

    Also, as you said, this may be the best dragon movie out there. Though "TheFlight of the Dragons" isn't half bad, though not half good either.

    Also love the fun little animation you have with Double-O-Dragon. You can bet we will be seeing that pop up everywhere.

    The Flight of Dragons was so loosely based on Gordon R. Dickson's 'The Dragon and the George' that I couldn't stand watching it. Seriously, if you read the book, the film's ruined. Beyond Starship Troopers. Why they didn't just follow the book's plot I'll never know. If they used different character names, they would've almost spared me the agony.

    I still have that movie on VHS, actually. It was and still is one of my favorite dragon movies. It's been a while since I last watched it, but now that I think about it, it really wasn't... that's great of a movie, but eh.

    And I don't know how, but until now it never DID dawn on me that Shawn Connery was the one voicing the dragon. It really has been a while since I watched it... and that makes the dragon that much more awesome. =D

    Great review, it's good to see someone else who thinks dragons are awesome!

    ...

    Well, when they're not being evil. :/

    Just don't mention this movie's sequel. That was... bleh...

    I saw this in theaters, and feel really old now for some reason
  • RuinerXXSinCity
    old? I was 15 when this came out in 1996, and I don't feel old. However, I do have to admit I never got around to seeing this film fully so maybe it aged your psyche? ;)

    Nostalgia Chick great video, but I need to call you out on something. Claiming David Thewlis was miscast as Professor Lupin in "HP: PoA" is to infer that Alfonso Cuaron had no clue as to what he was doing when casting the part. No personal offense but that is pure BS. He embodied the tragedy of that character perfectly, and did a beautiful job earning the audiences' care.

    i'm a dude and i cum to the sound sean connery's voice...i think i shared too much just now

    Not at all. You only professed to be a homosexual.
  • YoSafBridge
    avatar
    Cumming at the sound of Sean Connery's voice isn't proof of homosexuality. It just proves you're human (9 out 10 rebels agree it's the only effective way to weed out Terminators)

    That Bond/Dragon animation was kickass.

    Holy shit, it's Lupin! I was wondering when you'd mention that it was freakin' Lupin! I'm also glad I wasn't the only one who found him horriblty miscast (and lame mustached, which is hard to do since mustaches are awesome by definition) in the Harry Potter films.

  • RuinerXXSinCity
    I seriously hope that when you see Connery films in the theater you warn the people sitting next to you, never sit next to kids, and wear rubber pants!

    It seriously frightens me to think of your.... umm..... "bodies" reaction was to the scene in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" where Connery uses his umbrella, and starts screaming "TOOK TOOK TOOK TOOK!" to scare seagulls. The poor people in the audience with you probably thought the fire sprinklers were malfunctioning.
  • Saturn
    So... does the dragon spit the bullets? never mind.

    Nice job with the vid. How can anybody NOT love a dragon voiced by sean connery?

    Very good vid, and I entirely agree about the T-Rex CG in Jurassic Park, some of the most seamless CG in movie history.
    The T-Rex attack at night when it walks in front of the car headlights...awesome work. Then when the puppet head nudges the car then moves out of frame, and the CG dino walks toward the other car...THE best FX shot I've seen. Geek rant over.

    Hee hee....you said you just came. :confused:
  • NoahClue22  - Yeah.

    [color=green]Finally! I've always wondered where that music came from. I mean seriously; when you use it in every 90's movie trailer, you're bound to wonder where it came from.
    And of course, really well done Lindsey. Witty, clever, and with a nice touch of dry humor, you did a great job covering this film. Never even heard of it before. Can you even consider this a "chick" movie? Well, I guess it can just fall under the generic "Damn-Sean-Connery-is- the-freakin-man" genre. And who in this wide world doesn't love it.
    Plus, major props to your title card and animation creator (sorry, missed the name). Seriously, for a clip as short as that, you did a pretty sweet job. It's nice to see such professional work in the animation department, and definitely worth being shown three times.[/color]

    Cool my first comment on TGWTG and its on front page go me! :D

    my sister would watch this like 3 times a day when i was young :dry:
  • merkamerka
    Eragon is a good Dragon movie..... AHAHAHAA!
  • Serph
    Eragon is a bad dragon movie.
    Eragon is a good dragon book.
  • ChaosShadow
    Ha ha what. No.

    Eragon is a terrible dragon movie.
    Eragon is a [i]barely passable[/i] book that happens to have a dragon sometimes do something in it.
  • NemuiNeko
    avatar
    Since we're talking about books and dragons, A book that has a similar theme to Eragon only better written is [i]His Majesty's Dragon[/i].
  • KlawedFlaw

    The Icefire series is a good dragon book series.
  • Accaris
    It's gotta be this versus 1981's Dragonslayer for best dragon movie (although the dragon was evil in that one, still awesome though!

    The best two things about Dragonheart are the dragon, and the soundtrack. I mean come on, who can't dig that epic piece near the end? But yeah, it's like they tried to write a Disneyesque dragon movie without any of the talent from Disney... the result was something that while nostalgic, falls flat on occasion. Good review.
  • vid3oman64
    I almost want to look up the main song on Youtube, but I expect the song after the main melody to be not all that great.
  • RuinerXXSinCity
    Kind of like in Dune with that epic guitar riff melody that plays during the worm assault near the finale. In the movie it plays several times, but on the OST it lasts for about 4 seconds, and is never heard again. I fucking hate that!

    This was a fantastic review! I remember seeing this in theaters, and I thought it was decent at the time. Looks like this movie is only meant to be seen with child vision.

    Also, that 007 dragon animation is freaking amazing.
  • Squeakybell
    The title card and animation are the most badass things I've seen all day.

    Lol, Eragon. That was so unintentionally funny.

    It's been awhile since I've watched this movie, but when I was younger I loved it. I still own it on VHS and probably eventually DVD. Thanks for the trip down memory lane miss Nostalgia Chick :lol:

    Hot raging discussion going on on the forums. My opinion and subsequent roasting because of it is there.
  • Wade Wilson
    shouldn't you be reviewing the my little pony movie?
  • The Goth
    avatar
    I'll admit that this is way better than the last couple of reviews that have been pure garbage. This was actually pretty good. Still not up to par, but it's alright. You're almost there, Lindsay.
  • NoahClue22  - To The Goth
    avatar
    [color=green]You're entitled to your own opinion, no doubt. But to be fair to the person you're critiquing, how about telling her WHAT specifically you felt wasn't up to par? The jokes? Subject matter? Delivery? What?
    It's just nice to be more specific in future comments, so that everyone can actually understand where you're coming from. K'?[/color]

    Ooh, I've never heard of Dragonheart before. I love the design of the dragon, and having Sean Connery as the voice actor is just kickass.
    (Plus, I loved the animation!)
    I love dragons, but I find the main fault in dragon stories is that it's "a boy and his dragon" and it's just damn annoying because more focus is on the relationship and less is on the characters, creating only shells of characters.
  • Elzarynn  - Nice vid
    avatar
    I like that I can enjoy you riffing this movie, without taking away from my enjoyment of the movie itself. Although when I watch [i]Dragonheart[/i], I tend to focus on the parts of the movie that were good and let my mind wander from there. That's probably why it remains one of my favorites.
    Good review, although it felt a little rushed at times. All your observations were spot on and very funny, but I thought they could have benefited from a little more detail.
    P.S. Dragon Connery FTW!
  • NCscritic  - careful now
    Easy with the Eragon clips there Lindsey. While yes, the movie sucked ass, the book was not that bad. it was a hell of a lot better than the movie anyway.

    its like, If Eragon was star wars (and it sorta is) then the movie would be the the instructional video from the star wars Holiday special for 2 hours.

    "Heh, I think I just came"
    also! "Lover, Fighter, Fucking Dragon"
    ...Fucking Dragon?.. you wish :D
    lol okay okay :D :whistle: but you should have seen that coming :whistle:
  • Arix
    This is pretty much my favourite movie ever. Seriously, why can't there be more good dragon movies with dragons as actualy characters and not just random big bads/macguffins?

    Oh, and this movie has no sequel. DON'T MENTION IT.
  • Aron
    avatar
    Did you know this movie has a sequel?
  • Arix
    YOU GO BURN NOW *dragonfire*

    Also (on the vid) it seems you missed out a lot of stuff - like a bunch of the stuff you say didn't really make sense actually make perfect sense in the context of the whole film. Buuut I'm not here to pick apart an undoubtably entertaining vid, so yeah.
  • Eniac

    Great animation indeed! There should be a movie about "Double-O-Dragon" :D
  • Chessie

    Dragons are always bumped out of the spotlight by those pesky humans. But at least the Shrek dragon wasn't forgotten.
    I think you should wear a blazer for one video. After all, it's winter!
    And when will there be our dragon spy movie?
  • Moonwatcher7
    avatar
    Gah....That... that face... It's Evil Medieval Howdy Doody. It will haunt my dreams forever. No wait, scratch that, useless monk character's (WtF?) dialogue will.
