The Thief of Bagdad

Another awesome movie...I missed the new beautiful restored film at the Film Forum this August so I had to make do with a dvd version. If you are big into plot and story this might not be your kind of film BUT if you like evil sorcerers, princes, thieves named Abu that can battle giant spiders, hot chicks in slinky outfits & giant genies, well then check it out! It's also a great flick for noticing archetypal scenes that more recent movies (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Brazil, etc.) have ripped off.
