I have to agree with Dave's review of "Sinbad of the Seven Seas." This is a classic bad movie -- the best I've ever seen. The whole way through it I was on the floor busting my sides. Jaffar's insane overacting and the sock puppet piranhas have to be seen to be believed.

I'm extremely puzzled about the scene Dave alludes to in which Sinbad gets separated from his buddies. This takes place just after they all finish killing the empty armor suits (mounted on LIVE horses that had been buried underground until that point, yet in perfect health). Sinbad goes in to fight the empty armor suit Boss Monster (which happens in slow motion of course to disguise the fact that it's a pretty pathetic battle), and meanwhile Jaffar zaps his buddies out to sea. Then they cheer. "Yay! We are lost at sea, separated from Sinbad, and further than ever from regaining the sacred gems of Basra!"

Why didn't Jaffar zap Sinbad out there, too? Geez, if I could do that, I'd be zapping them around all over the place.
