author topic: Movie Name?

Somone I know has this question:

I am trying to pinpoint the title of a movie I saw as a child, but don't have specific enough information to Google an answer. I'm hoping that somebody here will be able to translate a few fragments of my memory into a movie title so I can go back and watch it again! Please keep in mind that these descriptions are coming from a memory at least 15 years old, so none is totally certain. Here's what I remember:

- Animated, 1980s (presumably)
- Possibly Japanese, as the animation was slightly crude but in an anime style
- It took place on an island, and there was at least one child as the main protagonist
- The evil character wore a robe, and had sorcerer type magical powers
- Part of it took place in some type of ancient ruins
- There MIGHT have been a unicorn in the story

Any ideas?

It sounds suspiciously like the cartoon series Dungeons & Dragons with Willie Aames and Adam Rich from "Eight is Enough" and Donny Most from "Happy Days" as a whiny cavalier.

I'm gonna say Lodoss-tou Senki. The original title is actually "Chronicle of the Lodoss Island War" not "Record of Lodoss War"...

How did you KNOW it took place on an island? This one was actually made in 1968 but it was pretty advanced and it was probably shown much later in foreign markets...

Well, This almost certainly isn't it but it does sound interesting, doesn't it? I'll keep looking...

Huh... unfortunately, you've just described what could be any number of anime from the past 25-30 years. Are there any specifics that you can remember, or has time obliterated the finer points of memory???

This is why we can make him watch anything! Maybe visual clues will help jog his memory.

Lodoss Island

Other Lodoss images.

D&D images. It's kinda annoying how they show a picture of Uni the Unicorn with the top of his head cropped. How could you tell he's an unicorn? He could very well be an albino donkey with a blonde wig. Who named him after sea urchin sushi anyway?

That goofy unicorn was voiced by Frank Welker, one of the great cartoon voice over actors of all time. (He's done everything from Scooby to Futurama, and worked for decades.)

The show sure looks cheap (and Adam Rich), though.
