So, out of curiosity, I looked up that movie. Sean Connery in a red diaper. Flying disembodied head. The entire membership of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee. No WTF is sufficient to capture the WTF factor of that film. Maybe the only thing that explains it is that it was made in the mid-1970s, when LSD was no longer considered strong enough but bath salts hadn't yet been repurposed for recreational psychosis.
Yes... I think an entire production crew in the 1970s might very well have experimented with injecting oven cleaner directly into their scrotums, and Zardoz would certainly be a plausible product of such an experiment.
Highlander 2 is still his worst movie.
"First Knight", is a very close second....
The gun is good. The penis is evil. The penis shoots seeds, and makes new life to poison the Earth with a plague of men, as once it was, but the gun shoots death, and purifies the Earth of the filth of brutals. Go forth ... and kill!
DC Comics had a superhero--Vartox, a "hyper"-powered friend of Superman's--who was modeled after Sean Connery's appearance in Zardoz (even the names are similar):
I've seen Zardoz.
I wish I could unsee Zardoz.
I remember watching it for the bewbies.
It was a horrible, horrible mistake, but I was young! I didn't know!
"When aspirin alone dozn't, Zardoz."
The original Highlander should be remastered in HD and released as Highlander: The Apology.
I've seen Zardoz. The use of Beethoven's 7th was the redeeming feature.
Poor old Ludwig Van spun in his grave from the attempted Ultraviolence
Apparently they are remaking Highlander with Ryan Reynolds in the lead role.
They just can't stop hacking at its bones with their dull, chipped machetes, can they?
Next to the things I've seen?
Zardoz is is a field trip to candy factory.
It's a bad movie, but in a way that provides all kinds of entertainment.
Your mind is a collection of nightmares no normal person should go anywhere near.
Zardoz is just bad.
Your taste seems to run bad, fucked up, extremely nasty and bizarre. The more bizarre the better.
I really didn't want to know that Diacanu is your stalker.
You fust be shucking mitting me. Bat's the gest you've thought?
So...no copies of Harry Hembock for you n' Zel then?
I vomited blood through my ears for a week after watching it.
I've never seen Zardoz, but I can't imagine it's worse than Casino Royale (1967) or Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Take the worst qualities of those two movies, add the worst qualities of The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle, roll them all into one film, then watch that film dosed on bad LSD. And then you're almost there.
No, Monster A-Go-Go is still the worst movie I've ever seen. At least Highlander 2 gives you something to work with when it comes to riffing.
Eh, I kinda liked it.
But...I liked bits and pieces of those two other flicks so...
Highlander 2, however, has nothing to recommend it...
Sounds like perfect material for Mike and the bots, uh, Rifftrax. But if there are titties to be found, they'll probably not pursue it.
I shit you not, Vartox is going to be in the "Supergirl", series.
He'll be played by Owen Yeoman.
Interesting. I guess I'm way out of touch because the promotional material describes Vartox as a villain.
I thought he was bad at first, and came around.
I remember he and Superman fought early on, but I thought Vartox was merely misunderstood.
Interestingly, Vartox is actually more powerful than Superman. He's got pretty much the same powers as Superman ("hyperpowers"), but also has a number of abilities Superman lacks. I like his ability to throw "remote control" punches, which lets him punch someone from a distance.
