Like a harpoon in the side of Herman Melville's great novel, this low budget fantasy yarn is more drag than dragon.

Reworking of classic novel 'Moby Dick' but this time using dragons as the game or hunt as it were. To be honest this is a really neat idea, the only… More

Straight-to-DVD and with good reason. A watchable, but horribly conceived fantasy feature. The only reason I saw this is because I'm such a sucker for… More
