Willow

One of the better fantasy/adventure movies to come out of the 80's. Warwick Davis (who is also the Leprechaun) is the title character who is faced with the task of delivering a prophesied baby to safety so she can bring about the destruction of the evil queen/sorceress.
I always found the Willow character annoying but enjoy the surrounding cast. The tiny Brownies who accompany him crac... read more

''Magic is the bloodstream of the universe. Forget all you know, or think you know. All that you require is your intuition.''

Willow, a small farmer/apprentice magician, meets Madmartigan, a great swordsman, and together they journey through a war-torn land of magic and monsters, to save a baby princess from death at the hands of an evil queen.

Being overshadowed by Lucas' most well known masterpieces (Star Wars Saga), Willow isn't as popular. This doesn't matter, due to the cult following this epic-fantasy entails. I can see why it has a following and I'm a part of it hahaha. Fantasies are very enjoyable and they're either a 'hit' or a 'miss'. There is no miss my any means in this film.

The story involves dwarves, witche... read more

In the dungeons of the castle of the evil Queen-sorceress Bavmorda, a prisoner gives birth to a child who, according to an ancient prophecy, will put an end to the reign of the Queen. A midwife saves the child from the wrath of Bavmorda, but is forced to throw her cradle in a river when reached by the Hounds of the Queen. The river brings the child near a village of nelwyns, and little Willow finds and adopts her. When the Hounds reach the village, Willow begins a difficult journey to bring the baby back to her people and to fulfill the prophecy.

100 Great 'Fun' 80s Movies (100 movies items)

"Produced by George Lucas, who has come up with the basic idea as early as 1972, and directed by Ron Howard, 'Willow' is a fun fantasy adventure film that fails on a basic storytelling level but makes up for it with some good set-pieces, strong visual effects and a well-constructed swords-and-sorcery world. I loved 'Willow' when I was a kid so I was surprised on seeing it as an adult by just how baggy and slow it can be. George Lucas may have pre-emptively thumbed his nose at critics by naming so"

Star Wars of the Rings

“There wasn't a truly successful sword and sorcery film until Peter Jackson got into the act, and despite a liberal helping of trolls, brownies, dragons (bearing a bit of an unfortunate resemblance to a two-headed version of the Penosaurus from Flesh Gordon) and fairies, Willow certainly didn't break the run. Rather than going the Conan route, producer George Lucas adheres to the Star Wars formula in the form of Pat Roach's Darth Vader clone, the skull-masked General Kael, Val Kilmer's Han Solo-esque hero, Joanne Whalley's headstrong princess and Patricia Hayes' Obi-Wan Kenobi figure, among numerous other visual and narrative touches, with magic standing in for the Force as the power that holds the universe together and helps our diminutive hero triumph.

"2.7. RON HOWARD MARATON Huonosti nukutun yön jälkeen oli aika jatkaa Ronin parissa pariin kertaan nähdyllä ihan kivalla fantasiaseikkailulla, jonka tapahtumat olivat tuoreessa muistissa. Rewatchille ei ollut siis oikeastaan mitään syytä, vaikka elokuva on melkoinen mestariteos Ronin perustuotantoon verrattuna. Ihan toimivaa lässynlää-fantasiaa parilla groteskilla väkivaltakohtauksella kuorrutettuna."
