Grandson: Has it got any sports in it?
Grandpa: Are you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...
Grandson: -sigh- It doesn't sound too bad. I'll try to stay awake.
That quote is the first thing i've learned from Princess Bride. Before it i didn't even know it exists. It was one of my fav quote from Inkheart Trilogy. For a year so after i read it, i forgot about it again. Then i was reading a Ben Barnes interview and he mentioned it (as the movie who helped him create his accent for Narnia). So i'm googling the movie and i see that it was from 1987! I was like "no way i'm not gonna watch it". I'm a little picky with movies older than 1995 since i will be whining for how fake are or for the special effects ( ex. i started laughing at the Tron movie...i just can't!). Finally i decide to give it a try and i got the BluRay version too..
I have to admit, in the BluRay version is just wow! It doesn't even look that old! And not only that but i fall in love with it! It was the cliche of the cliches! Hahaha! As the quote says it has everything. AND it's so much fun!
Take the grandpa/grandson scenes? LOVE! The kid was amazing. It was like "nah...a book..and no kisses" and in the end it was so into it like he lived it! He was asking things all the time and the grandpa was like "shut up".
And then the princess story. Oh true love..it can win every war or bad guy :P A classic giant more gentle than any other man alive. A guy who does everything for his princess. A princess who just...does nothing. Like NOTHING! There was a creature at some point the good guy was fighting and she was just starring. It bite him, he burned and she didn't even run. She fell down and almost get killed. LMAO.
Of course there was an evil guy who wanted to conquer the world and an evil scientist too.
The best way to describe the movie is with exact quotes or scenes ^^ I usually tweet photos while i'm watching but there were to many scenes, so i just picked some of them now. (Sorry for the greek subs)
-Oh no.no.Please! They are kissing again. Do we have to see it again?
- Someday will not bother you so much
-We will never survive!
-Nonsense. You say that cause no one ever survived before.
-Where am i?
-*creepy voice* The pit of despaaiir! Don't even.... *coughing and gets back to normal voice -.- * Don't even think about escaping...
-It won't be easy sir..
-Hmmm..try to ruling the world sometime
And while saving trying to save the princess..the good guy can't even walk ^^ He can only speak and move his head actually...
