    You know, I'm probably going to get slammed for saying this, but that Troll 2 clip at 4:29 got me thinking that there really are worse films than Troll 2 in existence. Xanadu is one of them. At least Troll 2, in all its flamboyant badness, is campy fun.

    Anywho, good video as always!

    If you fought troll 2 was the worst until now, you've never visited thecinemasnob,com ;)

    This is simply amazing. I had to register just to comment. I have very fond memories of this movie's horribleness. I saw it as a midnight movie with my friend about two years ago, and it was a gateway to tons of future midnight movies (including Rocky Horror Picture Show). I dont think Ive ever laughed that hard since.

    Two. Thumbs. Up.

    Hey now, Lindsay, "Rocky Horror Picture Show" was a musical that had aliens (from the planet Transexual Transylvania no less ;)).

    With that little nitpick out of the way, your Zeus voice is hilarious. I'm definitely curious to see what that next review entails. Probably to do with aliens and robots...and destruction. ;) :P

    Actually, it's the planet Transexual in the galaxy of Transylvania. ;)

    Now that sounds a little more accurate! Thanks for the correction!

    :X Another fabulous funny jab at all things nostalgic... thanks Nostalgia Chick (Lindsay) This was hilarious as always. :)

    I was gonna point out the Rocky Horror thing, but Monarch beat me to it (darn you!) and with the line at the end "Next...rebellion! And robots and aliens!" I have to wonder if maybe you've found an example anyway, Rocky Horror or otherwise. What have you got up your slee-

    I actually did my own version of the script. It was a lot funnier, contained a lot more filthy language, had no musical numbers and made a LOT more sense... but it probably would have ended up being 30 minutes in length. In my version of the script Sonny realizes he's not actually in love with one of the daughters of the greek God Zeus, he's actually just on drugs.

    Awesome video as always. However, ELO has and always will suck. Soft pansy rock devoid of anything that makes music great. Gene Kelly kicks ass though.

    Now that I have that out of my system, I watched this movie as a kid. I wish I could say I hated it but........ It was one of those things where I thought all the cool older kids liked it so I should like it too.
  • Deimos1984rd  - What a trippy movie

    Since when did Olympus look like TRON?

    I'm SO glad that this movie has never been aired in Germany (or I at least never noticed it airing), because it's just so ... so ... so XANADU!
    Thank you for warning me, Nostalgia Chick. Thank you so much.
  • JimmyLick  - Musical With Aliens
    avatar
    [i]Little Shop of Horrors [/i]was a musical with aliens. (Yes, Audrey II was an alien.)
  • Floweramon
    Awesome review Miss Lindsay! Odd looking movie, though the stage show seems interesting. Sad about the lack of aliens though, even the title sounds like there should be aliens or something sci-fi related.

    You certainly weren't a gentleman on the chat Dan... :P jk

    Creepy fanboy behavior aside, can't wait for your next review NChick!

    I know Xanadu's a Rush song and .... that's it. And from the look of this movie, I can say I wasn't missing much.

    Nice review.

    What were you alluding to at the end of the video there? Looking all coy ;)

    This wasn't [i]just[/i] a last ditch attempt to save roller skates, discos and Olivia Newton-John's career... I think it was just the last gasp of the 1970s in general. Every decade has this awkward transition period from the previous decade that ends when some benchmark event occurs. The '90s were killed by the 2000 election, the '80s were killed by "Smells like Teen Spirit"... etc.

    But the 1970s? This stilted play spelled its end. Good review N.C.

    [i]Next... rebellion, and robots and aliens![/i]

    What could it be? I have a pretty good guess, but with bated breath, I shall be waiting anyway.

    "Next...rebellion! With robots and aliens"

    Rebellion? Robots? Aliens? The 80's? Is this adding up to what I think it's adding up to? Or are you totally tossing us a red herring here?
