Trying to find a way to say that the little person roles/performances in this are much better than the norm for the time or for the idk type of thing that they are- do I feel that when casting revolves around a physical characteristic that "that'll do" is the normal standard applied, I think I do maybe? Not necessarily with ref to a disability even- take Harry Potter for a fuckin start.

No sign of that here, willow, family, sorcerer, the village council dickhead, all great. Is that noteworthy? Feels noteworthy. Idk.

Pretty great grandiloquent James Horner score even though he blatantly lifts his main theme from Schumann's 3rd symphony

the nintendo game based on it was pretty solid as well.

This film is extremely, extremely beautiful, well-acted well-written well-edited, was one of my favourite movies as a child and I can't find fault with it today

Jean Marsh's response to her daughter's betrayal is just the best. "Turned.. against.. me? ... PREPARE FOR THE RITUAL!"

Supposedly some sort of sequel or TV series or something is underway.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 15 January 2020 00:55 (eight months ago) link

well they've finished ruining Star Wars now, so it's time to get something else up on the block

This is a movie I kind of forgot existed. Haven’t seen it since adolescence, making a note to revisit.

my favorite Val Kilmer, forever and always

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 15 January 2020 03:32 (eight months ago) link

I had a Madmartigan action figure as a kid

papa stank (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 15 January 2020 03:46 (eight months ago) link

hope you had a baby action figure for it to take care of, as promised

mookieproof, Wednesday, 15 January 2020 03:49 (eight months ago) link

nope, my mother's heart was hardened and wanted nothing but ill for the child!

papa stank (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 15 January 2020 03:51 (eight months ago) link

lol

Did you turn against her

Mad respect for James Horner’s shameless but highly imaginative plundering of Schumann’s 3rd Symphony throughout this
