Awesome classic fantasy films and one of my favorites as a kid. I love this movie and love the dragon effects, dated as they are.
For me, the trauma came from the priest guy getting cooked, not so much the baby dragons.
how bout some truth in advertising?
i thought it was going to be dragon after dragon carefully placed on top of each other. instead it was about killing one dragon.

You were expecting maybe "Reign of Fire"?
That one had more dragon footage in the trailer than the actual movie itself.
Vermithrax motherfuckin' Pejorative all up in this
Fuck Lord of the Rings.
This and Pitch Black as the two entries in the odd "girl disguised as boy so poorly you didn't even realize she was supposed to be disguised" genre.
We didn't have a VHS and my parents were fairly strict about content so I'd go over to my friend's house and watch all the 'good bits' of movies. I saw the babies eating the princess, the clearly-a-girl genital reveal scene, and Vermithrax's awesome dragon guts completely out of context. Pretty awesome - every scene stuck in my head. Watched the whole thing years later, and it's a great movie that probably got *better* with age (I figure it probably disappointed people at the time expecting something more blockbustery).
Other scenes seen out of context at my friend's house: various bits from Jaws, various scenes from Poltergeist, various scenes from Temple of Doom, the orgy scene from Conan, the chestburster scene from Alien. Good times.
