30. 'Legend' (1985)

Long considered a film maudit and originally released in a butchered theatrical release version, Ridley Scott's supernatural fairy tale was eventually given the director's-cut treatment, with its original Jerry Goldsmith score. No matter which version of this medieval fantasy — in which a miscast Cruise plays a young man who goes on a quest to save a damsel from the clutches of Darkness (Tim Curry, doing what he can) — you prefer, you still end up with a rather inert, indulgent, and, occasionally, laughably silly movie.
