Seeing this one on Tuesday. For the sake of revision, I watched the original over the weekend. I understand the film was shot on a limited budget, but it hasn't aged well at all, and that's being kind. But at least Mel Gibson's acting has definitely improved over the years, if only because it simply couldn't have got any worse. And utter disappointment to find out the Brian May who scored the film isn't the Brian May. Oh well.
A number of my childhood memories of the film have now been shattered and I daren't see the rest of the early trilogy. Still looking forward to the new one though.
