She

She final battle
We’re surrounded, but we’re really, really cool.

Well… there’s this movie called She.  Once, it was available to stream on Netflix,but there’s no way of knowing if it still is.  If you go to IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes and look for She, you’ll have to dig a little to find it.  Fortunately, though, it does have a bare-bones Wikipedia article.  There are other movies called She, but none of them are from 1982 (or 1984, according to only Rotten Tomatoes), so there’s no reason to ever watch them.  This one has Valeria from Conan the Barbarian, and in She, she plays She.  Her name is She.

She lepers
This movie needed an action figure line.

For the most part, She is just another “sci-fi post-apocalyptic wasteland with a bunch of weirdos running around in it” movie.  While it’s not as great as it could be, it’s also not as bad as other reviews would have you believe.  Complaints like “It’s so bad, I stopped watching after 15 minutes,” or “I wasn’t paying attention and got confused” aren’t too helpful.

She communist
Infused with the power of the Loc-Nar, Communism is back in style.

She follows Tom and Dick who are trying to rescue their kidnapped sister.  Along the way, they team up with She, who is a goddess of some kind.  To reach their sister, they have to travel through a land filled with a werewolf orgy party, a Nazi football man, a robot Frankenstein monster, a god-like psychic communist named Godan, leper-people/mutants, a giant in a tutu, a mad scientist, and XENON to reach the Valley of the Norks. Xenon is the best part of the movie.  If a genie ever tells you he’s going to turn you into a movie character, seriously consider requesting Xenon.

I’d say She isn’t for everyone.  It may bore the armchair BM enthusiast, but if you can overlook some of its shortcomings, She is at least worth watching.

She Xenon
Xenon!

Here’s an Amazon link, just in case it becomes available.
