Sword and Sorcery

With the popularity of Dungeons and Dragons role-playing games in the '80s came a slew of films revolving around heroes with swords, saving damsels from dastardly dragons and evil wizards. While long a popular form for "B"-films, it wasn't until the sudden acceleration of special effects in the post-Star Wars world that the magic and monsters that make up the genre were rendered possible.

Harry and Son

Directed by Paul Newman

Family Drama - Rated PG - 117 Minutes - 1984

Harry (Paul Newman), a middle-aged hardhat, has trouble communicating with his teenaged son Howard (Robby Benson). While Harry wants Howard to find a bread-and-butter job, the sensitive boy would rather pursue a writing career. Howard tries his best to please his dad, but ultimately realizes that he must march to his own beat if he's to find lasting happiness. Many Paul Newman movies seem to feature a scenario straight out of Penthouse Forum, and the one here is especially wild. (Available on Prime Video)
