    First off... :rofl: x1000

    I really love old sci-fi and as I was browsing through the sci-fi section of my Comcast OnDemand movies I saw this in the free movies section. Seemed like an interesting story and it was Sean Connery's first post-James Bond film so I figured, what the hell.
    Good god, no wonder he dissappeared for a while through the 70s and 80s. :lol:

    For example, here was his outfit for most of the movie:

    I know what I'm wearing for Halloween next year! :yesway:

    On the bright side, I guess, there was plenty of circa 1974 boob in it. :shrug:

    haven't seen it, and i'm not sure i'll be looking for it.

    more likely, i'll be looking OUT for it :)

    I actually quite like Zardoz - It fits in pretty well with early 70's sci-fi
    (Rollerball, Soylent Green, Apes movies- kind of the world is going to hell with a hippie bent to it....

    John Boorman can be an interesting director (Excaliber just kicks all kind of ass)

    The story itself was actually pretty good. I'd actually like to see that movie re-made. :yesway: I just couldn't get past Sean Connery's outfit. :lol:

    What was the first line when the big stone head lowered from the sky? Something like... "Guns are good. They cleanse the land. The penis is evil. It spreads the seed!" :lol: or something like that.

    I had no idea that the director did Excaliber. That's a great movie!

    Zardoz effing rules! :D

    I watched it on late night tv a few years ago, and my WTF-o-meter was off the scale through the whole thing. It seemed like something out of an old Genesis record, story-wise :lol:
