What's RIGHT with the film 'DRUIDS'?

Post by El gone to Cid »

There is seriously nothing to praise this pile of 'excrement' at all. No. Nothing. Zilch. Nada. Zip.
Wouldn't be without it in the collection though.

They should have given Druid the leading role, that would have been awesome.

It's new. It's exciting.

It wasn't good enough to be shown at the cinema.

As Caius says, not good enough for the flicks. And for that matter, only good enough to go to dvd in, wait for it, the good ol' U.S. of A.
If you ever wondered about Christopher Lambert's acting, this answers it. It's worth a quick peek just to laugh at his wig and 'tash.

I've just had the thought after reading the quote on that page, that the best actor for the role would have been....



........wait for it......




........you know it's coming, don't you.......





.........yes, that's right..........



... good old George Dubblya :D

They actually have this in my local Blockbuster. I love terrible films - especially when combined with copious amounts of alcohol and a few mates - maybe I'll rent it.

Make sure it's when you have absolutely nothing else to do. Last thing at night's good so when you wake up, you feel strangely ok about missing it.

What a riot those pictures are... ! Doesn't he have any expression other than gormless?

And I didn't realise that the Druids lived so well. Their habitations and clothes were a strange mix of medieval, Roman and 18th century Scottish. :wink:

(Christopher Lambert, wasn't he the one in 'Highlander'? It would explain alot...)

Actually in that picture above he looks a little like Jack Duckworth, ca. 1976. Or that man with the moustache that sang 'Save All Your Kisses For Me'...

In fact, I'd go so far as to say, you put the man from Brotherhood of Man next to Christophe Lambert in that picture, you couldn't tell which was which...

Classy. I am so putting that to the top of the Amazon rent list. :D

This appears to say it all. Although this is a very flattering picture of the hairpiece itself, as it is brushed forward over his glacier-sized forehead (and doubling the apparent depth of his head).


Must see the thing in action - we so miss late '80's rabbit fur and sorcery films......
Is it 'coz I is middewl clarse, aih?
