We journey back to a time we at Spoiler Filled refer to as BLOTR, or ‘Before Lord Of The Rings‘, where Fantasy films were their own special kind of schlocky and this weeks film, Red Sonja, belongs in a particularly Dark Age of the period. It’s essentially Conan the Barbarian, but if Conan was a minor role, and not actually Conan, and replaced with an inexperienced female model and an annoying kid. So if you are looking for some uncomfortable Asian stereotypes, uncomfortable looking (if elaborately varied) clothing and some very uncomfortable acting, then you’ve come to the right place!
