Q - The Winged Serpent
Directed by Larry Cohen
In Larry Cohen’s ‘80s cult classic, a giant dragon comes to NYC to feast on pedestrians. His name is Quetzalcoatl and for months he’s been hiding in the Chrysler Building and devouring unlucky sunbathers around the city. But when a criminal (Michael Moriarty) stumbles across Q’s nest, he must decide whether to lead two cops (David Carradine and Richard Roundtree) to the hiding place. Cohen walks a tricky line, combining an homage to giant monster movies and a character study of a pathetic loser, but the result manages to be fun, scary, and, yes, moving.

Damn fine performances and a gas moving plot combined with some good old fashioned stop motion monster magic make this an entertaining must see B movie classic! All the great New York location shots are a bonus.
i felt like the movie was pretty damn good given the size of the dragon and as it was portrayed flying high above the city and coming in to grab its victims at that time CGI was raw and hard to work with it was not the go to option as it is today and there was a distinct detective understory i enjoyed the film and i'll give it a flying five
Cheesy and fun movie
