When I showed "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger" to an older friend, he was pretty baffled by Sinbad's martial art skills.

Well, he was suppose to have traveled from Arabia to China.  Could learn a few moves along the way.

I think Savate was developed by sailors, originally. So Sinbad's in good company :)

If I remember the training book that my late father-in-law had, the French learned in it Siam and brought it back to France.  So it would be somewhat common among sailors traveling that part of Asia.

It is :) It's not my fave Sinbad movie, but it's just as jam packed with cool scenes as the other two.

It's my 2nd fav Sinbad movie after "Golden Voyage of Sinbad". But this one has loads of awesome stuff too.

I thought Patrick Wayne made an admirable Sinbad, loved this movie.  You mentioned these creatures were kind of cute, I think the cutest creature, even though a bad guy, was the homunculus in The Golden Voyage of Sinbad.  I actually felt sorry for it when they killed it with the arrow.

The homunculus is cute, but also kind of creepy. It's sort of an extension of Koura's mind.

Totally did not remember that scene! Which makes me wonder if something got cut for TV. Or maybe I was on the can when TCM was showing it? Hmm.... (Admit it Zeo my man, you remember everything with little Jane, the sorceress, and damn else.) Heh, the one who grabbed the stick turned out to be the best one! And all those ghouls did better fight work than some real live humans I've seen in the period epics recently. What does Hollywood do anymore, shoot all the fight scenes in 2 days and then use stupid camera tricks to cover up the sloppy work?

This is probably the most dynamic scene in the movie, and Wayne does a great job of selling the fight. I'm not a fan of modern fight scenes. They may be very well choreographed and performed, but I'm not seeing any of it since it's edited to death. One series of films where you actually can see what's happening in the very well made fight scenes is The Raid movies, where the action is a joy to behold (if you're into that kind of thing).

It's on DVD, with eBay being the best chance of picking it up nowadays.

 Clearly your chum isn't very familiar with the astounding number of things that have made a spirited effort to kill this old Sailor-man then!(there must be SOME reason they keep failing, after all).:D (Big Grin)

It's the hard school of life -even for ghouls!

 Well then it's a good thing Captain Sinbad stands at the Head of the Class!

I like the horrified skeleton creatures you've got going on here, particularly their eyes. Yikes! This pirate guy knows how to fight! :) (Smile)

They're pretty cool critters, but, unfortunately also quite cute.

I thought these were aliens the first time I saw them

Yeah, I didn't know what the heck they were. Their cute chirping made them kind of non-threatening to me.

Yeah but their eyes freak me out when I was younger

Growing up, this was my favorite scene from the movie.  At the time, most everything else went right over my head. 
On a side note, I wonder if decapitation would have worked, or if blunt force trauma was the only thing that could put them down.
