In the latest installment of our web-series, Rusty Ward and I watched RONA JAFFE’S MAZES & MONSTERS.
*Not to be confused with AL JAFFEE’S MAZES & MONSTERS. (which, I imagine, would have been titled “Mazes & Morons”, filled with snappy answers to stupid questions. “Are you going to jump off the Twin Towers and commit suicide?” “No, I am Pardu, I can fly from this tower and join the great Hall.”)
Like a role-playing game, the movie has many levels to it — that is, you can enjoy it any number of ways. I first saw this movie as an 8-year-old, and now I’ve watched it again as an adult. I enjoyed it each time I’ve seen it.
I don’t want to give too much away here, since unlike other reviews we’ve done this video sums up our observations and doesn’t require lengthy bonus material.
