I could just tell when I heard that crazed cackling from the crones that their faces weren't going to be pretty.
Usually I prefer my 80's fantasy heroes to have a bit more charisma than your Singers and your Arnies, relying on wit and intelligence over brawn in the face of overwhelming opposition - the Dragonslayer / Dark Crystal mould.
There was really no perilous quest here; Dar rarely seemed in any danger at all. His enemies proved unequal and underwhelming, lacking that 'omnipotent threat factor' of the best of the genre.

The ferrets antics and Tanya Roberts helped pass the time.Those eyes! (no, hers!)

This is one of my favorite S&S movies ever. It's just so cheesy! What's more, you can tell that none of the cast is taking it seriously, resulting in some awesomely OTT performances. There are so many things to like about this movie: the supermodel witches with the botched face lifts, the recycled death priests that seem to pop up throughout the movie, despite being killed several times over, the green eyed psycho guards, the batmen with the eagle fetish... Honestly, there's never a dull moment in this movie. Cow cesarians, exploding huts on stilts, bears hiding in bushes, incestuous love interests, random sword swinging (for no apparent reason), ferret sniffing, random stick swinging (for no apparent reason), stealing the clothes off nude bathing girls and then sexually accosting them afterwards... hilarity!

Excellent movie.  Is better than the sum of its obvious flaws.  Heh, how did everyone like the second.  Kodo and Podo ROCK!

Goddamn I want to see this film!
I'm way too young to have caught it first time around and somehow it's passed under my bad taste radar but from what I'm reading it sounds a bit like Conan ramped up to silly proportions.
I just hope I can find the Trilogy as a box set with loads of extra features (and maybe even buy some of the TV series for added low budget madness).
What a weekend that is gonna be!!!!

About the ferret/ kleptomaniac thing: 'Ferret', after the French 'fuiret', derived from the latin 'furix' meaning 'thief'. Sorry to be a pedant!

Thumbup This is a definite favorite from my childhood and I still love watching it to this day and I'm 30 something! I just love it. I find it very entertaining. Maybe it's my love for animals?  Smile Please check out my website to learn how you can help animals in trouble. http://KindnessNotCruelty.org

It's been years, but I remember being enthralled by it as a kid. I owe some of my earliest tinglings of libido to those witches...though maybe the face to leg contrast just made the latter look so much nicer.

I think my parents were so worried about the slashers and shoot em ups of the era that things like this were tolerated, maybe via the reasoning that it must have looked too silly to them for it to be considered a threat. It could also be that they figured sword fighting movies would make me gravitate towards sticks rather than guns and knives...it could also be that my dad liked them more. Wink

I'm so curious to know, because however cheesey it might have been, this one had more than its share of violent, disturbing, and violently disturbing scenes. hot

I would love to enjoy it again, but would hate to spoil my memory of its crazy coolness.

One of my wife's favourite films. Could Singer's posing pouch have anything to do with that ?????
For me, it's a yawn, but she sits through it rivetted (Hmmmm) time after time!

I own The Beast Master and Marc Singer has the hottest body I have ever seen in my life. I watch The Beast Master every day! He is the finest man alive. You can tell he has a great spirit and he's a great man! I love the movie plenty of action pretty women and hot men. John Amos was a very strapping man in that day. Always remember to "Pull For Your Freedom!"  Thumbup

The Beastmaster simply Rocked!

I even liked the series. Did you know Marc Singer appears in the last handful of shows? That was a neat little throwback to the original Dar.

I don't care what people say, I like this movie DAMN IT!!! I first saw this when it came on the pay channels back in the 80's as a kid.

I thought it was entertaining then, and I still think it's entertaining now...(yes, I own it on dvd)

Are some parts cheesy and dated?? OF COURSE THEY ARE!!!

LOOK, IT WAS THE 80'S PEOPLE....YOU SNORTED COKE AND MADE RIDICULOUSLY CHEESY MOVIES!!!

During that time, America was on a coke fueled, self-love, ego-trip....and it definitely showed from Hollywood.

In case you don't agree, let's examine some of the period's ridiculous protagonists shall we??

1. Dar: As we've seen, a bastard child of royal blood....BORN TO A COW.

2. Doug Masters: A cocky, young high-school aged Air Force that just happens to rescue his fighter pilot father from the clutches of an evil 3rd world dictator.

How does he accomplish this??....ONLY BY PILOTING A FULLY ARMED F-16 INTO ENEMY TERRITORY DESTROYING EVERYTHING WITH WINGS OR WHEELS WITH ABSOLUTELY 0% AIR FORCE ACADEMY TRAINING.

3. And my personal favorite.....Alex Rogan: A whiney kid that lives in a trailer park where apparently getting the high-score on the local arcade game is the most fascinating and entertaining public spectacle since the miracles of Jesus Christ.

How does being the "Starfighter" champ of the trailer park benefit him??.....Well, OF COURSE HE CAN NOW LEAVE EARTH TO GO SAVE AN ALIEN RACE IN A FAR AWAY GALAXY BY CO-PILOTING A SPACECRAFT IN A DESPERATELY OUT-NUMBERED INTER-STELLAR SPACE BATTLE THAT SEVERAL HOURS PLAYING VIDEO GAMES HAVE COMPLETELY PREPARED HIM FOR.

See a pattern concerning the 80's developing here??.....We were in love w/ ourselves back then, and it showed on film.....at least until the cocaine high wore off.  TeddyR

I love this movie. It was crap! But when this movie was made crap MEANT something. Marc Singer was a musy have for bad movies back in the day. Seen Virus? V? You couldn't make a truely bad film without him. Today it's getting so every idiot kid with a digital camera and a shark idea thinks he can make a B movie.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
