Flash Gordon 30th Anniversary Edition
"Can you believe that it's been 30 years since the "Queen" Flash Gordon film was first released?"
I saw an advert for this Limited Edition Blu-Ray Steel Tin in SFX, October 2010. I know that it has its critics, but for me it is a film for watching when your spirits are low and you need a boost, it never fails to bring a smile to my face..... Flash Gordon's Alive, despatch war-rocket Ajax. See what I mean!
I already have two copied, a VHS (I don't think I will ever part with it) and a more modern and new-fangled DVD copy, so a Blu-Ray is a bit of an over-kill, but Christmas is coming and my Wife reads this Blog!
I am sure that regular readers will know of my love of Flash Gordon, the early Alex Raymond comic strips, The Buster Crabbe black & white cinema cliffhangers, this film and the many, many other re-incarnations. With the one exception of the Sci-Fi TV series, I don't think there's a duff one out there. I might just settle down and watch this film - just to celebrate its Pearl anniversary, many happy returns.
