GOOD GOD THESE ARE HORRIBLY BAD! Thankfully they're horribly bad in a stupidly entertainingly, WTF way. Cheesy sets, crude and lurid animation, "acting" unworthy of the term, dubbing that makes speed racer sound good by comparison....what more cpuild a bad movie fan ask?!

I have seen both films. While I was not fond of neither one, I did like the 1st one better than the 2nd one. Which may be why there never was a 3rd one.

I enjoy these in a pure cheese way.  I think my favorite part is in the first one where Hercules throws a bear into space.

I love the final battle in the second one.  Hercules and King Minos transform into energy beings to fight.  And since their no longer bound by physical form, they can take new shapes.  So first King Minos takes the form of a T-Rex.  Now, for fans of stop motion like myself, you'll notice that the T-Rex is actually rotoscoped footage of One Million Years B.C .

To fight Minos, Hercules transforms into a gorilla-and their fight becomes a rotoscoped scene from King Kong.

Arnold was scary looking. Watch the first CONAN-he's intimidating. I read a story once where he was swimming in the ocean in the early 70's out in California somewhere, and when he came out of the water some woman ran screaming. Quote- " he looked like a monster or something!" And when he smiles he looks even scarier!

I think I only saw the first one, but I was amused by how all the monsters were robotic variants of the mythical beasts.

    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.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
