Due to changing priorities, I've decided to sell my 1998 Flash Gordon DVD from image entertainment. The disc goes pretty high on ebay, and I need the money. But before I got rid of it, I decided to give it a spin in the player one last time!

Man, what an awesomely bizarre movie! It works for kids because it has a simple space opera plot yet also for adults who can appreciate a cheesy romp. The casting is great as well from top to bottom. I love Vultan, Flash, Ming, Clytus, and especially Princess Aura. Tim Dalton is the only guy playing it totally straight, as he is always keen to do.

I remember being grossed out by it as a kid, loving the colorful art deco sets and ships, and thinking the soundtrack by Queen was the coolest ever. Everybody always cites this as a bad movie, but one they absolutely love. Snakes on a Plane must have been trying to be what Flash Gordon became 20years on.

Long Live Flash!!!!

A great movie! I will always have a special place in my heart for this flick. I wouldn't worry too much about selling it. Eventually they will rerelease this on DVD again.

Every time it airs on TV, I have to watch it.

With all the garbage they put on DVD, why isn't this film available? I understand why you are selling it. Amazon has it starting at $55 used and goes up from there.

You should at least make a copy of it for yourself before selling it.

Of course I did. Being that it wasn't an outstanding edition, I won't lose much in the transfer.
