YMMV / Yor: The Hunter from the Future

Go To

  • Adaptation Displacement: It was adapted from an Argentine comic book known as Henga, el cazador. Said comic book is well known as Yor in Italy.
    • Furthermore, the 90 minute American dub is far more known than the four hour Italian miniseries.
  • Award Snub: In an odd Razzie example, the film wasn't nominated for Worst Picture at the 1983 Awards, despite the fact that the Razzies did nominate it for several other categoriesnote , so they did know about it.
  • Awesome Music: Quoted at the top of the main page.
    • John Scott's score also has its share of fans.

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The House of Mirrors scene.
  • Cliché Storm
  • Crazy Awesome: The infamous hang-glider bat scene, of course!
  • Critical Research Failure: A carnivorus triceratops?!
  • Ear Worm: That opening theme will never, ever leave your ears when you hear it.
  • Ham and Cheese: John Steiner as the Overlord makes for some great campy fun.
  • Inferred Holocaust: Yor commits genocide on five civilizations over the course of the film! Even the people he was trying to rescue, he drowns.
  • It Was His Sled: The film is actually set in a far off future that regressed to the stone age. It's to the point where it's the title of the film.
  • Memetic Mutation: "We will need a lot more hemp before we're through."
    • "Help me cut the choice meats".
    • And, once again, the opening theme.
  • Narm: Too much clunky dialogue to count.
    • Big tough guy Yor who does this sort of girly walk down hills.
    • The bat-hang-glider scene is so absurd it crosses the line to Narm Charm.

    • The trapeze scene. You can't take it seriously.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Summed by Noah Antwiler, you'll either say this film is this, or "more painful than bleeding hemorrhoids."
  • Special Effect Failure: EVERYTHING to Narm Charm levels, especially those paper maché dinosaurs. Not to mention Yor - or rather, an action figure done up like Yor - swinging over a pit.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: For as hokey as 99% of the film's effects are, the shot of the spaceship flying away at the end is actually very well done.
