Q: The Winged Serpent

Q: The Winged Serpent
Listen to the Stinker Madness Episode

Watch the Whole Movie!

That ol' nasty Aztec cult living in NYC rears its ugly head again and resurrects a giant flying hotdog-turtle that eats bikini ladies. Meanwhile, a low level criminal butthole douchebag treats his girlfriend poorly and then takes a couple of barely working cops on an egg chase.

Believe it or not, this film shouldn't be called "Q", unless "Q" stand for "Quinn" because this film is not about a flying dinosaur(?) worshipped by an Aztec cult. It's truly about Jimmy Quinn, a low level criminal that doesn't understand how to do his job and his quest for fame and fortune, set to the background of a giant flying serpent attacking NYC. Here's a simple test to verify this: Tell us what the story of Q is in this film and then tell us what the story of Jimmy Quinn is in this film. You have a beginning, middle and end to Quinn; you understand his motivations, his relationships and his desires. Quinn is the main story.

What is the motivation of Q? Is he hungry? No, he doesn't really eat anyone. Is it just pissed? Maybe, but he should be stoked because he's got people sacrificing to him? Is it protecting its child? No, he's flying all over the place and not by the "nest". Is Q even intelligent? 

What's the endgame of the Aztec cult? Is it to make many Qs? If so, then what? Qs kill everyone on the planet? Good plan...

So enough about the story. This movie is bonkers ridiculous. The acting is ludicrous. I guess it might be good because the entire dialogue of the film is just ad-libbed. So the actors are doing the best with what they have to work with...their ability to act to their own inane ramblings. The dialogue of the film is so dumb and unbelievable that you may have to watch this three or four times to really get it, because you are crapping your pants in laughter at how stupid it all is. Its great.

The effects....boy yoy yoy. These are terrible by any standard, whether 1982 or 1954. The matting is horrible. The claymation is quite poor. Creature design is terrible. The scale of Q and humans vary from frame to frame. Not good. 

So in short, Q is a total blast and for sure a must see movie. Its hilarious, ridiculous, and non-stop banana business. You can really watch Q multiple times back to back. Don't just watch it online. You should own a copy of this gem.
