K is for Krull

***********Just for the sake of clarity - the theme for my A to Z postings is gaming in the 1980's with my friends.*************

Krull
Here I go with another activity from "gamers that did more than just game" category of 80's memories.  The trailer for Krull is below:

Several of us went to the theatre and saw this film.  There was no D&D movie at the time but this was a close approximation to the way many  groups played the game [atleast for a short period of time]- as in, they did not strictly stick to fantasy but also threw in a little science fiction also.  Not to mention that TSR mixed science fiction and fantasy with EXPEDITION TO THE BARRIER PEAKS.  I admit that it is not a cinematic masterpiece BUT it is better than the official D&D movie that we got.

  1. I really liked the fold up throwing flying ninja start thing. About the only thing as cool is in another movie, where the guy had a 3 bladed sword. He could shoot out the blades as projectiles. I think it is the Sword and the Sorcerer. I wasn't played as often as Conan or Beastmaster.
