Princess Bride

Year Released: 1987

Last watched: September 2011
Number Watches: 4 and some bits.

“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die.”

“To the pain!”

Can anyone better that sword fight? Or the perfect emulation of all the fantasy movies you’ve ever seen but still managing to throw in wonderful lines and comic timing?

Although looking like a Mel Brooks film, the well designed sets, nice camera work and lighting make this a cut above the tv-films of the 80s. The lines are delivered without pause the action is superbly whirlwind. Once you start watching, even if you’ve seen it before, you can’t stop until you get to the end-fights. I caught this on TV about 5 times from the about the swamp or just before so I could add a few more ‘watches’ on if I was to include these.

Go get it, watch and enjoy to the fullest. You won’t regret it.

 

Keep DVD?
Yes but I really want some extras such as outtakes or interviews.
Watch if on TV?
Yes.
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Ha-HA! Bring to the aisle, give troth and forever after kiss with true love!
