Legend (1985)

Shat The Movies power couple Carlos and Natasha were kind enough to gift the Shat Crew three film commissions of our choice. So we  used the first to fill a glaring omission in the Pantheon of Shat: “Legend.”

Nursing a “Hawk The Slayer” hangover, Ash was a bit worried venturing back into her beloved fantasy genre, but she quickly discovered Legend’s production value was top-notch. Gene was impressed with dwarven heroics, and Big D felt like he was having a bad acid trip.

But all three Shat hosts agreed on three things: Tom Cruise looked ridiculous, Ridley Scott builds incredible worlds, and Tim Curry is a god.

In this episode, your hosts discuss the difference between alicorn, unicorn and Pegasus while plunging into less critical questions, including: Why does Jack abandon his loot? Was the enchanted dress all that enchanting? How long is too long to play Frisbee with metal platters? Are goth girls dirty, sexy or both? Did Darkness deserve banishment? And which version of “Legend” is the right one to watch?

    In the episode covering Legend the hosts responded to a listener who said that he would no longer listen to the program because of Gene’s outright contempt for law enforcement. Big D replied “I don’t know why anyone would stop listening…” because of Gene’s opinion on the matter.

    I wouldn’t stop listening to the podcast based on the ideological statements of the hosts, unless those beliefs were categorical insensitive or harmful to certain groups. I will say that I no longer respect Gene’s opinion as I can’t get behind someone who would make such as bigoted, concocted and ludicrous claim such as “all police are bastards”.

    Gene said that he doesn’t see the police as a group of people” which is undoubtedly false, as he is judging all law enforcement agents on the same exact basis. Gene is in denial or a liar, either way he is letting us know that his bias supersedes his acuity. If the show is covering a police drama is Gene going to give it a low score if it portrays police officers is a positive manner? I’d say absolutely, which makes everything he says suspect.

    Anyway, I’ll still tune in each week. I still enjoy the banter and wit from all of the hosts. But from here on in I’ll always question the motivation and opinion of a self-described social justice warrior who is intolerant of an entire faction of people.
