This week, I have something a little different to share with you; my Crapper compares! It’s not from YouTube, but it is video, and definitely worth taking a look at.
Meet Obscurus Lupa. She’s the hostess of “Obscurus Lupa Presents” which is a video review series on That Guy With The Glasses (you can go there to view her complete archive of reviews). She specializes in reviewing obscure, bad, and just plain weird movies.
Lupa has reviewed two movies in particular which I want to direct your attention towards. They are:
and its sequel
Both movies are really little more than cheap knockoffs of the Harry Potter book/film series. The second movie is a little more original, but not by much.
Of interest to Crappers, both movies feature the lovable, over-acting “Rowdy” Roddy Piper in a role very similar to Harry Potter’s Rubeus Hagrid (note that there are some Harry Potter series spoilers in that Hagrid link).
“The Hot Rod” really is the best thing in both movies, but that might be because everyone and everything else is so horrible. He seems to be the only one making any kind of effort and he seems to be having a lot of fun.
The reviews are a lot funnier if you’re familiar with the Harry Potter books (or at least the movies based on the books).
But enough about these lousy knockoff Fantasy movies. What are your favorite Fantasy movies or TV shows of all time, and why? Let us know in the Comments section below!
