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.

Directed by Joyce Chopra

Psychological Drama, Coming-of-Age - Rated PG13 - 92 Minutes - 1985

A young girl's pursuit of maturity takes some unexpected turns in Joyce Chopra's adaptation of a Joyce Carol Oates short story. Laura Dern plays a typical teenager who's excited to go to the mall and flirt with boys (which results in some amazing mid-80s mall footage), but when a mysterious man (Treat Williams) shows up at her house while she's alone, the two carry out a fraught exchange.
