She (1982)

How bad is it? It seems to be random pieces thrown together.
Should you see it? Sure. You can tell people it's a Bergman film.
Even the boxes are funny.

This 3rd (I think) version of the Rider Haggard novel has little to do with the book. The main character is a goddess with no discernible powers who leads a group of amazons in a post-apocalyptic world where men are second-class citizens. Sandahl Bergman is on a quest to rescue a kidnapped girl and there's a vampire, a telekinetic mad scientist, axe-wielding monks, mutants with chainsaws, werewolves, a giant and none of it makes sense. It is well-shot for once and that's appreciated when Bergman takes a bath (there's a video called "Sandahl Bergman's Body" that I rented once). It's mindless fun and I'd left it off this list for a long time because it's not terrible.
