Army of Darkness

This is one of those movies I've always wanted to watch but, somehow, I didn't manage to get around to seeing it until now. It was about what I expected. Hilarious one-liners and a lot of camp. My grade: B+

Synopsis: Unassuming store clerk Ash is time-warped into England's Dark Ages, where he must find the Necronomicon, a compendium of the black arts, before he can return home. Fortunately, he has time to romance a beautiful princess and battle an army of skeletons. (via Yahoo)

Director: Sam Raimi (Spider-Man)
Writers: Sam Raimi (The Hudsucker Proxy) and Ivan Raimi (Darkman)
Stars: Bruce Campbell (Bubba Ho-tep), Embeth Davidtz (Schindler's List), Marcus Gilbert (Rambo III), Ian Abercrombie (Firewalker)
Cameo: Bridget Fonda (Point of No Return)

Useless Trivia: The Oldsmobile that goes through time with Bruce Campbell belongs to director Sam Raimi. He included it in many of his early movies, each time more banged-up than the last.
