In the late 70s and early 80s, Hollywood studios that we’re 20th Century Fox were all desperate to find the “New Star Wars”. Of course they all failed. But in amongst all the terrible sci-fi movies that we’ve all worked hard to forget, there shines a handful that while their quality is questionable, their charm is there for all to see. Flash Gordon is of course a perfect example. Super cheesy (“Flash, I love you but we only have 14 hours left to save the Earth”) and appallingly acted ,with a daft script and special effects that cost less than the price of a ticket to see the thing at the cinema. But so what? We still love it. However the true hero isn’t Flash, it’s Dr Zarvov. Dismissed for being a crank, he didn’t just go online a bitch about it in his conspiracy theory blog. No, he built a rocket in his greenhouse and set off to save the world with no concern for his own safety. How awesome is that?
