Shield chase scene punchline is classic

it's good

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

scarcity festival (Jon not Jon), Saturday, 23 April 2016 00:00 (eight years ago) link

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

darraghmac otm

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 (four years ago) link

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

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Wednesday, 15 January 2020 02:23 (four years ago) link

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 (four years ago) link

I had a Madmartigan action figure as a kid

papa stank (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 15 January 2020 03:46 (four years ago) link

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

mookieproof, Wednesday, 15 January 2020 03:49 (four years 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 (four years ago) link

lol

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

Surely casting a guy who looks like he could have been from a 80s gay porn who has the name Dempsey Bryk is too much

Ned Raggett, Friday, 12 November 2021 17:36 (two years ago) link

Also rewatched it for the first time in years a few months back and deems OTM:

This looks fuckin great. GREAT

Looks pretty good? Absolutely nails the tone of the film in terms of design at least.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 27 May 2022 16:58 (one year ago) link

promising!

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 27 May 2022 17:05 (one year ago) link

Is that the same actor playing Vohnkar? If so I am so happy about that

a legible shriek (flamboyant goon tie included), Friday, 27 May 2022 17:14 (one year ago) link

That would be Phil Fondacaro and I'm not sure, I'm not seeing him in credits listings, but probably is!

Also seems like Val is due to show up in a planned second season.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 27 May 2022 17:31 (one year ago) link

!

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 27 May 2022 17:34 (one year ago) link

if Davis is on board, I'll give it a shot

Jaime Pressly and America (f. hazel), Friday, 27 May 2022 18:02 (one year ago) link

I'd LOVE to see Val Kilmer hamming it up as he did, now middle-aged, sounds very fun

Pleased to learn that Jean Marsh is still alive! She seemed so old in the movie I guess I just assumed she'd passed. I love Willow (the movie), I watch it every Christmas

a legible shriek (flamboyant goon tie included), Friday, 27 May 2022 19:40 (one year ago) link

it’s one of my favorites too!

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 27 May 2022 20:55 (one year ago) link

i think Ron Howard directing helped it stay away from being exploitative of little people actors, as dmac noted way upthread. the actors obv have a lot to d that too - but i def credit howard with the mindfulness to ensure their characters are all so varied & human & great

i mean even the baby gives a great performance!!

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 27 May 2022 21:02 (one year ago) link

Man you know what I love more than anything, is Davis and Marsh's delivery here:

Willow: You stupid hag! With my magic, I'll send her into the... into a...
Bavmorda: [laughs] You're no sorcerer!
Willow: Into a realm where evil cannot touch her!
Bavmorda: Impossible! There's no such place!

This movie is so wonderful

Gotta say I really am liking the look/vibe of this new show more and more.

This November, the magic returns ✨ Watch the new trailer for #Willow, an epic new Original series streaming only on @DisneyPlus. pic.twitter.com/QKSU15rz2Z

For a second there I thought that new Dungeons and Dragons movie had come and gone already.

How many of these things do we need? (Full disclosure: I saw "Willow" in the theatres, but I was also 12 or something.)

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 30 October 2022 18:11 (one year ago) link

After Rings of Power sludged my brain I am all in for something breezy in comparison on this front.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 30 October 2022 18:17 (one year ago) link

I can't wait

It's interesting hearing Tony Revolori speaking mumblecore dialect (instead of standard fantasy accent) in the trailer

flamboyant goon tie included, Sunday, 30 October 2022 18:31 (one year ago) link

I've been semi-present in my attendance for all these recent fantasy series, only was enthusiastic in my response re: Sandman, but very excited for this tbh

First episode almost here! Will watch tomorrow obv.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 30 November 2022 06:08 (one year ago) link

Okay this was a great start. The antithesis of _Rings of Power_ in the best way, in that I’m very much looking forward to the rest of the season.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 1 December 2022 06:30 (one year ago) link

Oh damn this is up?!

french testicle (flamboyant goon tie included), Thursday, 1 December 2022 16:08 (one year ago) link

Sure is! Interested to know what you think! Two episodes debuted yesterday.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 1 December 2022 18:06 (one year ago) link

i was kinda underwhelmed by 1st ep? but they had to load in a lot of background info so i’m not prejudging yet

hey you know what, this show is great

queer and silly and bright, giving 0.5% of a fuck for the self-serious high fantasy tone that sludges up gamehousering of dragonpowerthrones

doctor w00t (cat), Sunday, 1 January 2023 03:03 (one year ago) link

Yeah it's been a total treat. Everything feels like it's being made up as it goes along, which is 100% vibes. It's like an ultimate fanfic, and the queer YA core of it all is indeed brilliant. Also love all the song choices and covers.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 1 January 2023 03:14 (one year ago) link

yes and heck yes, hi 5 bro! i was iffy at parts of the first couple episodes, like the first time someone said "dude" i needed to pause & recalibrate & decide if these flavors clashed or complemented, but it's won me over and i will now firmly stan this show until it gets bad or i get bored.

love the colors, the songs (even [especially?] the bratty pop punk), the dedication to shoehorning in jokes no matter how corny, the awkward teen romances, the way it's equally happy barreling straight into the cliché-est cliché or skewing off in any other random direction. it feels like everyone is having fun and i love that!

kind of didn't love the kill-your-gays-ing of the excellent woodswomen, like how dare you dangle these beautiful lives before us and then immediately snuff them out!? unnecessarily cruel imo but c'est la tv, and anyway there's still enough shaggy exuberance to keep me ensorcelled ☾ ⋆*・゚:⋆*・゚

Alas, that will be it, at least as a show:

https://deadline.com/2023/03/willow-canceled-disney-disney-plus-no-season-2-1235300401/

Pity because I did like the crazy ending, song choice and all. (And a hint of a returning Ebersisk.)

Ha, not quite that but imagine if

Ned Raggett, Friday, 17 March 2023 16:58 (one year ago) link

More like, we're not canceled, we just released the cast to do other things, but we may get around to it in a year or 30.
