Gor (1987)

A limp Physics Professor with a calculator wristwatch and magic ring is weirdly transported to planet Gor where he rubbishes his way through a barbarian training montage, eventually becoming a saviour of the people.
The sci-fi/fantasy yarn isn't that bad, at least no worse than a lot of other films in the same crossover genre, it's when someone speaks that things go very South. The unlikely hero is about as tough as a wet tissue and the villains as threatening as a week-old cheesecake at sale price.
It features Ollie Reed as a tyrant with a love of athletic slave women and silly plastic armour; he does okay, all things considered.

Feck.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry for you.

I'll just fap and do both.

There's a sequel but w/o Ollie Reed, so I can ignore it.

Although, it has Jack Palance...

I like him...

Dammit.
