Guilty Pleasures - RED SONJA (1985)
I have no defense for liking the film RED SONJA. No reason for rewatching it- no reason for enjoying it- no reason for being very happy to own it on DVD. It is without a doubt a bad film. Terrible in fact. Despite being directed by Richard Fleischer, having a script co-written by George MacDonald Fraser and boasting a fantastic score by Ennio Morricone it is an absolutely awful movie. All the acting is bad, the story is so thin it wouldn't pass for a good comic book tale, the kid character is irritatingly obnoxious and the villain is just silly.
So- why do I love it so? I just don't know.
