You're My Mission

I'm Alycia. Christian. ENFJ. History and movie encyclopedia. Born in Michigan on 14 June, raised in Colorado.

Foreign language films. I will watch anything but my favorites tend to be German and Scandinavian films.

I tag things obsessively so it's usually pretty easy to dig through my shit.

A cartoon apparently expressing a rather sour German point of view on the British-French “Entente Cordiale” of 1904 — John Bull walks off with the trollop France (in her scandalously short tricolor skirt, whose red and blue colors are indicated by the conventions of heraldic “hatching”), while Germany pretends not to care.

20 Awesome Obscure Movies

19. The Flight Of Dragons (1982)

The Plot: When the realm of magic is threatened by the realm of logic, a great wizard summons an intellectual from the world of man, to try and unite spells and science.

But it’s far more exciting than that sounds – with powerful dragons, mystical knights, grotesque monsters and demonic warlocks all joining the battle for supremacy.

Basically, it’s what would happen if you Sellotaped some pages from The New Scientist into The Lord Of The Rings.

Why So Obscure: In this epic battle between magic and science, religion doesn’t get a look in.

So perhaps all the gods (Jesus, Zeus, the other lot) clubbed together to conspire against Dragons ever being released on DVD in the UK.

It’s literally the only explanation that makes sense.

How Awesome: Flight was released direct to VHS in 1982, but it gained such a following that it was unleashed cinematically in 1986.

And rightly so - there’s something really special about Flight Of Dragons. 

The voice-acting manages to be both boomingly epic at times, and so naturalistic at others that line delivery alone will bring you to the brink of tears.

Featuring James Earl Jones as the - imagine this - villain, and John Ritter as a Harry-Potter-with-a-chemistry-degree hero, the cast is peppered with pedigree.

And the - comparatively - complex plot is constantly commanding, with our likeable leads facing high stakes and great tragedy on their journey to an extremely satisfying climax.

There is a R1 DVD (we had to wait until 2009 for that one) so if you’ve got a multi-region player and (especially) if you’ve got a young family, these Dragons deserve to be rescued from extinction.

omg yes!!!! I loved this movie when I was a kid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! asdlks;jfd’jgj

via Der Fuehrer’s Face (1943, dir. Jack Kinney) (online here)

In this parody of life in the Third Reich, Donald Duck is forced to study the finer points of the Nazi’s “Master Race” philosophy while working “48 hours/day” at bayonet-point in an artillery factory. After a nervous breakdown, Donald awakens in the United States to find that it was all a nightmare & kisses a miniature Statue of Liberty, thankful for his American citizenship.
