If you want more Troxartas in your life, you can see the same guy playing pretty much the same character in Rifftrax's Wizards of the Lost Kingdom. I highly recommend it.

Who's Shane McGowan of the Popes? I know there's a Shane McGowan of the Pogues, but I've never heard of the Popes.
Also I love them for that reference there.

Wow. A Deathstalker movie with all the nudity cut out... But all the scenes where the "plot" is explained had nudity so now it makes even less sense. Not that it was "good" to begin with but, you know... Boobies!

So I decided to try some of that smooth “Deathstalker” game at my local pub. I came in with fake English accent which I quickly dropped; told my attractive server girl I DID NOT kill her twin sister, constantly referred to myself as a HERO, ordered a baked potato, potato skins, French fries, tater tots, and a baked potato, challenged a balding guy to several lame sword fights, and NOTHING; no hot virgin fell in love with me, no BDSM play with a sexy nympho, no one wanted to join me in a vague revolution, although when I left I distinctly heard cheering behind me. Oh well, guess I will just go back to my old “Mitchell” moves.

I heard that Deathstalker was originally known as Crap-talker by his friends, mostly Nesisus, but he had it changed after a shameful incident in the shower after gym class and moved to a new school district. Also who did the voice over work for the bird ??? Must've been the guy/gal from Eehga that said "Watch out for snakes".

I've seen a lot of half baked stupid ass movies in my time but this movie,as mike said "is one the most ambitiously bad movies we've ever done." I guess when u make up a fake Middle Ages-like fantasy world u can just skip any sort of time continuity like zippers or hairstyles or manners of speaking...

I can't get over the medieval Casio music, it just cracks me up. What is the deal with this movie, every time they get the story moving it will cut to a scene of something already in progress and as soon as I can start to follow that story line it cuts to something else. What did this movie look like before editing? Did they cut every scene that explained the plot?

I gotta say... these are some of the WORST swordsmen I have ever seen. They are swinging so damn slow, I could beat each in about 3 seconds (I lettered in fencing in college). They really need 2 things. A little experience with real fighting. And a MUCH BETTER fight choreographer... who actually knows how to fight with a sword.

I love a villain who, in the big climactic fight scene, uses his two swords—what we are to believe are two weapons of hardened steel designed for stabbing—to pick up a piece of lacy fabric and gently lay it over his prone enemy (while wearing a boat neck blouse). (~1:19:30)

So, after repeated watchings, I'm starting to think that John Allen Relson (aka Deathstalker) may be the most under-appreciated actor of the 20th century. Now, hear me out: anyone can be unlikeable on occasion, or even usually, but to be so consistently, flawlessly douche-y . . . I mean, my God, it's like a work of genius.

There's one moment in this movie that actually strikes me as having some genuine emotion. When the potato woman gets killed, he says, "My life wasn't worth yours." and if there had been that much sincerity in the rest of the movie, it wouldn't have been half as bad.
