What better way to celebrate the last free Tuesday before next semester begins (and our tradition of Tuesday-night movies is on hold for a few months) than to see Flash Gordon?
I'd never watched the campy film, riddled with Freddie Mercury's voice thanks to an all Queen soundtrack. When I was little I had caught a piece of it when my dad was watching it and I spent a very long time thinking Flash Gordon and The Flash were the same (hey, the word flash and the color red were involved here people).
Needless to say I was set right tonight. It was a crazy movie, and I'm glad I finally saw it - if only to finally get some popculture references.
