    It's been several years since I've seen ZARDOZ @Revelator and @Fire_and_Ice_Returns. While not a *great* film (per say), it is visually striking. And that is what made such an impression on me.

    As for Connery's wardrobe; to quote my late mother: "Dear Lord .......!" :))

    It amuses me that everyone talks about the red nappy, but no one ever mentions this:

    Miles o Keeffe stellar acting probably distracts from Sir Sean's Green Knight costume ;))

    Could've been worse. Imagine Sean painted green.

    I actually have ZARDOZ on DVR. Seems like the perfect time to finally give it a watch.

    Please do. It's a crazy film, but somehow guarantees compelling viewing from start to finish.
  • Just watched Untouchables for millionth time. Brilliant film. Connery steals it. Just seeing him in brief scene with De Niro is pure gold. What charisma he had.

    I used to have Zardoz on VHS and an acquaintance borrowed it and loved it. That's long gone, but I'd love to own it again, but the DVD/Blu-ray copies go for extravagant prices. Always been more intrigued by Zardoz than a lot of the other things he'd done during that time.

    Zardoz is a cult movie. It needs a TV series like Westworld.

    This is not new, but I just stumbled across it; it's a fan made trailer for "The Rock" that really steers into the possibility of it being an unofficial Bond film . There is a nice touch , in the for of a note, at the end

    “The Rock is actually a Bond film” feels like the new “Die Hard is actually a Christmas film”, which is getting so tiresome.

    Well, Die Hard is a Christmas film; go to sleep. 😏
