Magnificent. The high watermark for fantasy adventure, nothing has come close in nearly 20 years. The other two have stunning moments, but neither flow as perfectly as this (as with the books).
Undeniably awful, but uniquely, enjoyably so. I can't remember the last time a film had the balls to have such a mind-bendingly ridiculous twist and then try to play it straight to such fascinatingly ill-judged effect.
The kind of movie that could come out in the 80s/early 90s and have a daft following today like Basic Instinct/Showgirls/Hackers/Super Mario Bros etc.
Grab some drinks and get stuck in.
