She (1982)

One award loss and one sprained ankle later, Jared and Clint return from Vegas to resume their duties as your humble hosts! This time, friend of the show Craig stops by to help us dissect and make sense of one of his favorite films – the 1982 post-apocalyptic Italian anomaly She! The film starsĀ Conan the Barbarian‘s Sandahl Bergman as a sexy warrior goddess helping two be-permed schlubs find a girl captured by the garishly dressed Norks.

This film is a schizophrenic nightmare that will either leave you rolling in your seat or screaming in agony. There’s scene after scene of shoddily-assembled and murkily plotted events see our heroes avoiding werewolf orgies, fighting robot Frankensteins, cutting the limbs off multiplying stand-up comedians guarding bridges and more. It’s a film you really have to see to believe; luckily, it’s available on Netflix streaming. We’ve also got the drink and the rules to get you through it!
