Allan Quatermain and The Lost City of Gold (1986)

Allan Quatermain and The Lost City of Gold Tagline: Richard Chamberlain returns in the sequel to ‘King Solomon’s Mines’ –

In our first back-to-back reviews of a film and its sequel, Shat The Movies presents “Allan Quatermain and The Lost City of Gold,” the 1986 flop that answers the question: “what if leftover French fries were a movie?”

In the second half of listener MoonlitTear’s double commission, Gene Lyons boldly declares the movie series that kicked off with “”King Solomon’s Mines”” isn’t quite as good as the “”Godfather”” trilogy. Dick Ebert notes that only four people were credited with the “”Lost City”” special effects, and both Shat hosts struggle to make sense of an economy that’s overflowing with gold but still insists on using slaves.

James Earl Jones did his best to rescue this movie as the anchor to the world’s worst Dungeons & Dragons party, while Sharon Stone earned herself a Golden Raspberry nomination for returning to her role as Jesse Huston.
