Don't forget Manhunter which is the original version of Red Dragon. Manhunter is a really underrated movie. It starred William Peterson of CSI fame, Brian Cox played Hannibal Lecter, Dennis Farina played Jack Crawford, and Tom Noonan played the bad guy. Oh, and Dino produced one tasty granddaughter.

I happen to like Flash Gordon, if you haven't noticed by my Avatar in the forum, and my other Avatar on my profile page. And Dune was a good movie as well. His movie of Barbarella could have used a different actress on the other hand.

I read dune and the movie stank sorry to disagree with you. They man who played Paul atrades (sp)? was a douche. Flash on the other hand had good music and the fight scene at the end was cool :D

Not by today's standards but yeah, it's an X rated movie but funny as hell. And cheesy too.

I haven't seen that movie in years. The monsters were the best, especially the penisaurus and the Nesuahyrrah (Harryhausen spelled backwards). Great parody that is actually a tributes to the original.

It was an attempt at a good movie but failed :(

I didn't like his Flash Gordon or Dune, and his Kong Kong was a mess, but he also made some great movies, and from what I heard, he was a good guy to work for. RIP

I didn't realize he directed Barbarella. That's one of my dad's favorite movies, I think he just liked the way Jane Fonda looked in her mini skirt and boots. Knowing that makes more sense of his very campy Flash Gordon.
