I grew up with more Science Fiction than sword and sandals [In reply to] Can't Post

I had a steady diet of sci-fi with heavy emphasis on Star Wars and Star Trek, Superman, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, etc. pretty typical for a Gen-X nerd.

But along with those, I also grew up with "The Neverending Story" "Willow" and "Krull". "Willow" was pretty much the definitive fantasy movie for me for a long time. I also grew up watching the animated "Flight of Dragons" and "The Last Unicorn" which both stand the test of time remarkably well for me.

My Sword and Sandals experience was pretty much limited to "Clash of the Titans". I remember that the scene where the guy fights the Medusa made a real impression on me. I also watched "Ben Hur" at least once when I was a teenager.


"...and the power of Mordor was scattering like dust in the wind."
