Greatest. Movie. EVER. by kevinbolk Greatest. Movie. EVER. by kevinbolk
So tonight I got to do something I've been waiting for my entire life...see my all-time favorite movie, Flash Gordon, on the big screen.

The AFI Theater and Cultural Center in Silver Spring, MD was showing the film as part of its annual "Totally Awesome Movies of the 80's" program. And though I did sing along with the opening, I managed to behave myself through the rest of it. No small feat as Flash Gordon makes me giddy like no other movie has or ever will. :D

And yes, I did wear that t-shirt to the showing 'cuz, you know, I'm the coolest guy ever. HAIL MING!

I feel ya, bro. I did the same thing when I saw "Ghostbusters"(but only because I saw the music video beforehand). Anyway, besides the one you sang and the one I sang, my favorite 80s showtunes are:
9 To 5
Spaceballs
The Touch (Transformers '86)
A View To A Kill
All Time High (Octopussy)
Like A Cannonball (Cannonball Run II)
Care-A-Lot (The Care Bears Movie)(Seriously...I like Carole King.)

You are lucky beyond belief, my friend. I don't believe I could behave myself in ANY scene with Brian Blessed.

Don't worry. I would be tempted to sing a long too. It's got an awesome theme song.

This is such an amazing film! My fave band are Queen so when they do a movie soundtrack, I'm overly happy especially when it is a sci-fi film! Best parts of the film: Queen's soundtrack, Brian Blessed and GORDON'S ALIVE!
