They were both hard-core porn, but Flesh Gordon was cut to get better theatre distribution. I don't think that any original versions are available anywhere. It's funny as hell, though, with some decent special effects. You can think of it almost like a film of the real Flash Gordon, but with nudity and some off-colour language.I haven't seen either of those but if by "that type of movie" you mean weird semi-porno-type movies that would be awkward to watch with close friends
Ah, the movie has nothing on the book. Some of the visuals and explanations were nice, but there was such little detail in the movie. Of course, it's better than lots of documentaries...How about the Elegant Universe series on the PBS website? :P
Thats a pretty good movie, but im not super crazy about the storyline. Even though its true, it comes off as too 'hollywood'.Another movie I like that I just remembered is "A Beautiful Mind". I remember that one being pretty good but it has been a long time since I've seen it.
Check out 'A Man Called Intrepid'. I believe that it stars David Niven. It's the true story of a Canuk spy in WWII Germany.Id like to see a 'real' spy movie, not a karate chop james bond spy movie. One where the spy has to use his brain not to get caught and killed. I.e., real life.
