Wizards (1977): Netflixin 10/20/08

  • Why I rented it: I grew up on late-70s and early-80s sci-fi/fantasy, so it will always have a special place in my heart.

  • Verdict: 5/10. Low-budget and it shows. Weak story and characters...kind of reminded me of Heavy Metal, taking away the rock soundtrack but keeping the clothes on the nubile ladies. Where the film does excel, though, is in the still-frame expository interludes that show up every so often. With their ornate artwork and sad, wistful narration, they ooze the atmosphere of musty old storybooks lost for years in dark attics.
