Yor: The Hunter from the Future

Yor: The Hunter from the Future
Listen to the Stinker Madness Episode

Watch the Trailer!

Yor does not come from the future. He comes from over there. Sorry for the spoiler. He is still awesome. The ladies love him, the men fear him and Yor believes himself to be the most rad dude of all time and he might be right.

Yor is one of those wacky Italian movies that believes to be a good idea with a good story but is just a mess of silly business. Yor bounces smugly from scene to scene veritably stating directly to the audience, "Hey, did you know I'm awesome? Cause I am." His motivations aren't clear, his actions are bonkers, and his idiom is dubious. He's great. He even has his own awesome theme song (Yor's World) that rivals "Do You Want to Be a Hero" from Biggles: Adventure in Time and "Stargrove" from Never Too Young To Die.

Yor and his ladies...we truly don't even need a plot for Yor because we'd be happy just watching Yor walk around, meet a lady, fight some dudes or monsters, bang said lady, then walk around, meet another lady who makes lady #1 quite jealous, lady fight, then lady dies and the process repeats. Now that I think about it that's pretty much the whole film except the last 20 minutes. The idea of jealous ladies defending other ladies from Yor's wiles in a barbarian movie is so silly and will lead to many a good laughs.

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention Pag, an elderly Barney Rubble attired village guy, who assists Yor in his misadventures. Pag, while quite old, is action man. Take Jackie Chan and Paul Walker and then put them into the visual representation of your grandpa. He might be the inspiration for Legolas in The Two Towers....yet quite aged. Pag steals the show.

Yor: The Hunter from the Future is one heck of a good time and is required viewing for any fan of the swords and sandals genre, as long as you like stupid crap.
