Movie Review: Hercules Returns

Rating: It's a Keeper! (if you can find it)

I saw this movie years ago in the Seattle International Film Festival. We liked it so much we watched it twice.

I saw this movie years ago in the Seattle International Film Festival. We liked it so much we watched it twice.

Ok I have to admit that this review is from memory and will be short. Some of the movies on my list are still not in my collection but I would like to have them. This movie isn't out on DVD yet but I do see it on VHS on Amazon. I am torn between violating my NO VHS rule. I haven't even hooked up my old VCR in my new HT. I imagine the picture will be soft and a little grainy like standard definition TV but that might be OK for this movie.

The basic premise of the movie is that there is a restored movie theater that is going to show a gladiator movie for it's grand re-opening. The sound goes out and the theater operators provide voice over for the on screen action. And of course hilarity ensues.

So basically it is a film version of MST3000. Instead of sci-fi or horror the background film is an old Italian Gladiator Movie from 1964. I remember laughing hard at this movie and I can't wait to add this to my collection.
