Red Sonja (1985)
Director: Richard Fleischer
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Brigitte Nielsen, Sandahl Bergman
Film in a sentence: A young, surprisingly-not-that-ripped sword-swinger seeks to avenge her family’s death by joining forces with Lord Kalidor (Schwarzenegger) and poking Queen Gedren's (Bergman) head with a sharp metal stick.
Best bit in the trailer: Metal snake wrestling! Weirdly loud sword-swooshing noises! Broken table bad guy catapulting! “I make it a rule never to take a woman unless she can beat me in a fair fight”! It’s almost impossible to choose. Oh, all right then, metal snake wrestling.
Arnold fact: Arnold HATES this movie, and it signaled the end of his adventures in sword and sorcery movies. "I tell [my kids], if they get on my bad side, they'll be forced to watch Red Sonja ten times in a row,” says Arnie. “Consequently, none of my kids has ever given me much trouble."
