      Matthew D Greatly lessons the misogynistic streak expressed in the books (best described as Edgar Rice Burrows degenerates), but it also removes most everything that made the books readable; no giant birds or telepathic insects, making one wonder what the point of it was. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/20/21 Full Review Audience Member Gor is a sword and witchcraft movie, produced by Cannon (the eighties version of The Asylum), so there aren't many surprises as to what to expect. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review corkball I only got about 1/2 hour in to this and had to stop. It is maximum cheesy. It would probably make a really good MST3000 episode. The effects and the costuming are just over the top campy. If I had to say something good about the film, I would say they can make a movie better than I can. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member John Norman's S&M rip-off of "John Carter of Mars" is adapted by Cannon films. That sounds potentially great, but really ... it's not. On the plus side, it's got Oliver Reed and Jack Palance. On the overwhelmingly minus side, it's a really shoddy, cheap-jack film from the director of "Children of the Corn". Generically uninteresting Italian actor stars as Tarl Cabot ... a nerdy professor rejected by his girlfriend who finds himself transported to Gor where he becomes a great warrior after the briefest training montage imaginable and takes on an obviously drunk Reed to protect a chick in skimpy armor. The fight scenes in this resemble a bunch of folks wandering around a set until their weapons accidentally bump into each other. Jack Palance wanders in long enough to grab his pay cheque, say a line and get going while the getting is good. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member I wanted to give this no stars, but unfortunately a star rating is needed, but ignore the half a star because this gets no stars. A bland, boring film, which the worst type of film. A film with a shoestring budget, but with delusions of grandeur, or spent on Oliver Reed's alcohol consumption... The source material isn't that good in the first place, but this had the potential to be a good bad film, a laugh a minute film, but it isn't. The main character Tarl is the definition of a characterless vacuum and the rest of the cast are somehow worse. There is one very good scene at the end which provided the biggest (only) laugh of the film, but that is it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Could it be possible this was the inspiration for LARPing? The battle scenes certain give the possibility credence.
