Army of Darkness (1992)

A man is accidentally transported to 1300 A.D., where he must battle an army of the dead and retrieve the Necronomicon so he can return home.


Insanely quotable, tremendously fun and ridiculously entertaining. A true camp classic.

So, Helm's Deep is pretty much a shot-for-shot remake of this movie's big battle scene, down to the guy falling off the bridge into the camera, right? Why doesn't anybody talk about that.

Take equal parts Evil Dead, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court and (Loony Tunes + Three Stooges), add a generous helping of Jason and the Argonauts, throw in B-movie blender, and you've got Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness. I just watched it for the first time since it came out and it's hard not to be charmed by it as a pure entertainment. Raimi hits the perfect tone between action, horror and comedy that films like Pirates of the Carribean only wish they could. No, there's no character arc, and very little besides action, but it hardly matters. Wacky sequences like the birth of the Deadite Ash, or the insane battle with the skeletons are what it's all about. Great fun.
