Here Come the Marteetee

So I was reading this article earlier today, and Mr. Smith mentions the fight with Marteetee's hand-hydra from Your Highness.

I totally forgot about it, but the movie just might be worth watching for that scene alone.  I'm not sure I can actually recommend the movie — if you're into that sort of thing, then you probably should; it's likely to be hit-or-miss otherwise — but if you ever catch it, look for that fight.  It's a pretty clever boss fight, really.

(If you don't want to slog through it, here's a summary: the grotesque barbarian chieftain places the heroes in an arena wherein they have to combat this giant, hydra-like entity.  Said entity is summoned when the chief shoves his hand into a cauldron of goo, and this hand-like hydra erupts from the ground.  When the entity is injured, his hand emerges from the cauldron similarly-injured.  Draw whatever conclusion you will.  Overall, it's a pretty cool effect, and I'm jealous that I didn't think of it.)

  1. Were you to emulate this in some future game, however, I wouldn't say anything, and that's assuming that someone even noticed and made the connection. Do it!
