Your Friday Evening Dose Of Swords, Dragons And Scenery-Chewing!

Just imagine if Game of Thrones was made for pocket change, instead of having its lavish budget. Actually, you don't have to imagine it — we've got a clip from Merlin and the War of the Dragons, to show you what that would look like.


Merlin and the War of the Dragons is the work of The Asylum, makers of many fine and wonderful "mockbusters" (including Transmorphers and Alien Vs. Hunter). They're also the makers of the zombie epic Z Nation, which starts tonight on Syfy. But this particular gem hails from 2008, back when they were still young and hungry. And as you can see, Merlin is facing off against a rival wizard, who wants to rule the Saxons (and possibly play the Angles as well.) There's a lot of CG dragons, which are all brought down by a guy screaming really loud.

I don't know about you, but what I really want on a Friday evening is some crazy sword-fighting, lightning-shooting, magic-missile-blasting, dragon smashing action. And that's just what this is. Have a great weekend!
