Weird adventure beyond the stars ...


Habitué des fresques spaciales mégalo-fantastiques, Dino De Laurentiis (Dune, Conan le barbare) produit en 1980 Flash Gordon. Au générique de cette méga production de science fiction, on retrouve Queen qui compose, pour l'occasion, un fantastique space opéra. Ce sera aussi l'une des premières apparitions des synthés (Jupiter 8) dans leurs productions. J'ai choisi deux thèmes pour illustrer cette aventure, et je vous invite à revoir le film qui reste un délice de matte painting et de décors pharaonesque en polystyrène.

Usually making megalomaniac fantastic space movies, Dino De Laurentiis (Dune, Conan the barbarian) produced Flash Gordon in 1980. On the original soundtrack of this sci-fi blockbuster appears Queen, composing especially for the movie an amazing space opera, in which they will use, for one of the first time in their productions, synthetizers like Jupiter 8. I've chosen two themes to illustrate this adventure, and i'm inviting you to watch this movie back, which stays such a delight of huge cheap decorations and beautiful matte paintings.









Queen - Football fight









Queen - In the death cell

This is perfect because I like the science fiction and it is so much better if it is weird.
