Terry Pratchett's The Color Of Magic - Part 1

Terry Pratchett's The Color Of Magic - Pt. 1

For all of its popularity, Terry Pratchett's satirical fantasy series, Discworld, has yet to receive a proper, Hollywood adaptation.  However, The Color of Magic features a roster of respectable stars, including Tim Curry, Christopher Lee, and Sean Astin.

Slipstream - 1989


Slipstream, an Apocalyptic, Near-Future sci-fi featuring Mark Hamill and Bill Paxton, is rarely mentioned in Fandom. I have seen it numerous times but I can't tell you what it's about.  I recall the opening sequence being the best part.

Released late in the Dystopian, Post-Apocalyptic Mad Max / Terminator cycle, waning public interest in the sub-genre may have contributed to Slipstream's obscurity but the movie was not well-received by audiences, either.
