Throwback Thursday–Flash Gordon

Okay, yes. One of the more cheesy 80’s movies out there. . .

But still. It’s FLASH GORDON!!

I can’t even remember watching this movie in it’s entirety, but I remember the idea of it.

I hear whisperings of a remake. Have you?

Check out this movie trailer. . .  .

You just have to smile…..

I really hope they do a remake soon, like they’re talking about on IMDB.

  1. Flash holds a special place in my heart.
    My Daniel’s not too fond of musicals, like I am. At an early point in our marriage, I was trying to get him to watch Fiddler on the Roof b/c it’s one of my faves. He wasn’t buying it. But I kept nagging at him, telling him how great it was. Anyway, when I mentioned that Topol was in it, his eyes lit up. “The guy in Flash Gordon?” he asks. I thought, surely NOT. But then I found out it’s true! He plays Dr. Hans Zarkov.
    So I watched Flash and my Daniel watched Fiddler, we were both pleasantly surprised, and our marriage took a significant step in the right direction. 🙂
    Happy Throwback Thursday! Flash…AhhAhhh!

    • OH wow. That’s funny. Good trade off. Flash for Fiddler. 🙂 Starting compromise early in the marriage. No wonder you’re on your 15th year!!! Right or is it 16 now?

  2. This was the most awesome movie ever! I watch it every time it comes on…okay, because I thought the bird people were great, the score was amazing. And now you have me singing “Flash! Ahhhhh!” in my head, LOL Great 80’s pick! I liked how horrible the effects were and unless the remake is stellar, I’ll probably hate it, LOL

  3. No picking on Flash. LOL. I think it’s an 80’s classic. 🙂 I watched part of it the other night on TV. Yes, I’ve seen the entire movie. I’m sure I’m in the minority. 🙂
