* Now, with most CountdownOfDoom situations, the last few seconds are the difference between life and death. However, Fridge horror kicks in when you think about the fact that was the last few seconds of prolonged environmental upheaval with the Earth. Really, Was there much OF an Earth left to save?

* I always considered that the film's only blemish was that Flash and Ming never had a final sword duel to death, especially since during the last scene both characters are carrying swords. But then, during a recent rewatch it dawned upon me: Flash stabs Ming through the chest... with the Ajax rocket. The rocket itself *is* his sword.

*** Possibly, but his actions regarding her seem more like those of a frustrated suitor. That is, he seems to want her in no small part because theretofore he had been unable to have her.

** Or, Klytus has been sexually active with Aura (either with or without Ming's consent). Sexual manipulation is commonplace in a DeadlyDecadentCourt; Aura probably traded sexual favors for influence.

* Once Flash finally gets Barin focusing in the right direction, he becomes the King and leader he was always ''meant'' to be.

* It is strongly implied, to the point of almost being stated outright, that Ming had been sexually molesting his daughter Aura--in public, no less--for years prior to the beginning of the film. When Ming uses his magic ring to force an orgasm on Dale in the throne room when Dale, Flash, and Zarkov first arrive, he asks Klytus, the head of the secret police, if he had ever seen such "responsiveness," to which Klytus responds "No, truly. She even rivals your daughter." It is thus implicit that Ming had been doing the same thing to Aura, presumably in front of his entire court, on a regular basis for years. Now consider Aura's personality, specifically, her hypersexuality, and her willingness to use sex to manipulate others. Those are both textbook responses to sexual abuse (n.b.: certainly not the ''only'' textbook responses, but still somewhat common).
