In the grand heirarchy of high camp, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is at the top. Flash Gordon is directly beneath it. In many ways, Flash is both as good and as bad as moviemaking gets. The battle between Jones and Dalton on the deadly, spike-ridden, tilting platform hovering over a 50-mile drop is as tense as fight scenes get. The football-inspired fight in Ming's throne room is otherwise. A must-see on DVD for purists and superhero freaks. He will save every one of us!
A bellwether among martial arts films, Enter the Dragon was effectively the final film of Bruce Lee before his death at age 33 of brain edema (ouch). Dragon stands tall for both its high-flying, slow-motion kung fu stunts, its classic Lee vignettes (Lee tastes his own blood then flies into a rage), and its highly implausable plot involving Bruce as a fist-fighting spy recruited to infiltrate an ex-Shaolin Monk's island fortress during his triennial martial arts tournament. Naturally, there's a revenge subplot, loads of ladies for the combatants' diversion, and plenty of ass-busting fighting. A classic of its genre that must be seen by any self-respecting movie buff.
