Every time I go to the video rental place I see this on the shelf and almost get it. I think it's finally time I saw this movie.
I think that's a good decision
Absolutely hated it.
But yeah, it does need to be watched.
I live in Europe. As much as Germans feel uncomfortable talking about Hitler, a good German friend fell all over himself to watch this film. He was not disappointed.
Wizards was worse than the holocaust because at least the holocaust was pretty good for a holocaust. You know, it was effective at what it set out to do. Wizards tried to be a movie and it failed horribly.
I don't know what all this Bakshi-hate is about. There are bad movies that are actually too bad to watch, but this isn't one of them.
I don't know if it was an 'epic', but whatever the fuck it was go see it.

I hate this movie so much. 5 stars of pure, craptastic evil.
"Wizards is a Tolkien-en world" except filtered through both the 1970s and Ralph Bakshi's anus
"Oh yeah... one more thing: I'm glad you changed your last name, you son of a bitch!" :D
Like all things Bakshi this movie is ridiculous, flawed and overly rotoscoped. But it's also a lot of fun with a lot of interesting imagery. Any good nerd should watch it at some point.
My god. Has it really been more than 25 years since I've seen this movie? It's still burnt into my mind like it was yesterday.

If Peter Falk actually had done this movie it would literally be the Greatest Fantasy Film of All Time.
Another awesome movie that only I like. I need to compile a list of movies that only I like so I can use them as weapons against the world.
Where's my copy of El Topo got to...
Ever see Reign in Darkness? I need to find some clips from that sucker...
the EVIL ROBOT is named PEACE see do you get it DO YOU GET IT
Actually when it's evil it's called Necron 99. It gets the name peace later in the movie. If you watched it, you'd understand.
These stars are mostly for the sinister music that starts around 1:00 inexplicably giving way to what sounds like a bad porn soundtrack.
I'll bet that really blows your mind if you're stoned.
Five stars always for Baksi, and all the subtle undercurrents his stories convey.

I saw this as a young lad and loved it, though even then I knew it was flawed, but Jesus what a weird violent awkward cartoon like no other. Nowadays it's utter crap, and only really enjoyable as nostalgia. As a child it haunted me, for obvious reasons.
