Tanya_Roberts_08Every Saturday I find a movie or clip that I think will appeal to the fans of this blog. Since most of you enjoy action/adventure, I tend to focus on something that falls into that category. This week we’re looking at a trio of fantasy films released in the glorious decade of big hair and gratuitous nudity — the Eighties!

First up is the opening sequence to Sheena, starring Tanya Roberts. It’s a bad movie but it has its appeal, especially if you’re a young man with raging hormones.

Next up we have the simply awesome Beastmaster. I’m sorry, I do truly love this movie. And, hey, it also has Tanya Roberts in it! Here’s the trailer for the 1982 ‘classic’:

Surely all of you have seen the 1982 Conan the Barbarian movie? While it wasn’t the version of Conan that I would have wanted, it had its moments to be sure and I still rewatch it from time to time.

    Conan the Barbarian made a huge impression on me as a kid. It felt like watching an actual piece if history that I never knew existed.

    Tanya Roberts makes an impression at ANY age!
