    Flash Gordon

    ★★★

    So this is the infamous "Flash Gordon"! Yeah, I certainly can see why this is such a cult movie. It's a wild ride and pretty weird in nearly every single regard. The "Queen" soundtrack is really good, even though it's just as cheesy as the film itself ("FLASH! Ahhhhh-Haaaaa!").

    Die Geschichte um den Kindergärtner Lucas, der bezichtigt wird, sich an einem der Kinder vergriffen zu haben, ist schwer zu gucken und in ihrer Art und Weise so emotional komplex, da man die Reaktion jeder Figur nachvollziehen kann.

    So imagine my surprise that I ended up loving Tim Burton's extraordinary love letter to Ed Wood, the director responsible for "Plan 9 from Outer Space", "Glen or Glenda" and a couple of other, less notable b-films.

    Johnny Depp…
