The True Spirit Of Fantasy

13 years ago at Sep 12 7:22

Legend was probably the first movie to come into my life where I felt that it truly captured the fantasy element of a sword & sorcery saga that I always wanted to see on film when it came to this genre. The visuals in this movie are amazing, bright & filled with alot of energy (especially for it's time). The designs of the landscape & the characters encapsulate the kind of style that I would have... read more

No legend, but no tragedy

Poorly received by the critics on first release, I was curious as to what this film would be like in comparison with other Ridley Scott works and other fantasy movies.  It was an interesting choice of project following the complex and thematically dense Blade Runner.  Legend is far more straightforward and clearly aimed at a much younger audience.The first thing that strikes you is the visuals, ... read more

A good movie

At almost 80 years old, Ridley Scott is still incredibly productive and after several disappointing pictures, he once again managed to make an impressive come-back with ‘The Martian’ which turned out to be a big critical and commercial success. Personally, I have seen every single movie directed by this guy and, through the years, I have developed some kind of love-hate relationship with this ... read more

A magical adventure which features elves, demons and other mythical creatures. Darkness, the personification of evil, plans to disperse eternal night in the land where this story takes place, by killing every unicorn in the world. Although he looks unbeatable, Jack and his friends are disposed to do everything to save the world and princess Lili (who Darkness intends to make his wife) from the hands of this evil monster.

Fictional Places You Don’t Want To Visit (205 movies items)

"The Underworld Located in a unknown kingdom, somewhere in your deepest imagination. Why you wouldn’t want to visit: The Lord, Darkness calls this place home. It’s very terrifying, and creepy. The world after it’s frozen over, is no better. Gee, thanks a lot, Princess Lily."

“When I first saw this movie,on DVD, I was like wow! This movie is gorgeous to look at, a famous trademark of Ridley Scott. The main flaw in this movie is Tom Cruise. He looked confused throughout the movie, but he was still likable. The other flaw, is that the storyline takes a while to get going. But all this actually managed to pick itself up, and do bear in mind it is theme driven film. I was impressed with Mia Sara. She started off a little uncomfortable, but when she turned evil, she came alive. In fact, the personifications of good and evil were one of the main reasons why I like this movie, other than Tim Curry, who is one of my favourite actors. The performance of Tim Curry is what makes this movie. He was unrecognisable, underneath all the Oscar-nominated makeup, but what a perfor” read more

You know......for kids! (180 movies items)

"As someone pointed on this site, Darkness comes across as "a lovesick jerk", and oddly enough, some even consider him a sex symbol of some sort. Fair enough. Keep in mind, he does try (and do I emphasize the word try), to get Lily to kill a unicorn, and sure he is impressive looking as giant creatures go, but the relationship probably would be short lived, if she did get through with it, and killed the unicorn. That and there is Meg Knucklebones and those goblins type thingies."
