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

Description: Though Willow was one of director Ron Howard's few box-office disappointments, it definitely deserves a second look. At once an epic celebration and a gentle spoof of the sword-and-sorcery genre, the film concerns the efforts by little person Willow Ufgood (Warwick Davis) to protect a sacred infant from the machinations of a wicked queen (Jean Marsh). One source book has assessed the picture as a combination of The Ten Commandments and Snow White. Executive producer George Lucas has (through the conduit of screenwriter Bob Dolman) added elements of his own Star Wars saga to the stew. Incidentally, this is the film where co-star ... (more)

Movies the giraffe watched in 2018: September (31 movies items)

"Re-watch - Sept. 22nd Willow has been one of my favorites since forever, and I knew my daughter would enjoy it. So when she told me I could pick a movie for us to watch I jumped on it. And of course I was right and she loved it, and she'll probably ask me to watch it again. I was amused that she noticed some elements that have been in other films that followed it, and when she pointed them out I would remind her this film came first."

"1.9. (Kirjasto/DVD) #leffahaaste2018 Ron Howard on yhdistänyt voimansa mahtavan George Lucasin kanssa. Lopputulos on tylsä elokuva, jossa on paljon pieniä ihmisiä. Val Kilmer käy velmuilemassa, mutta siihen ne hyvät jutut sitten jäävätkin. "

Movie Reviews (301-350) (50 movies items)

" Fantasy movie about a "chosen child" with magic powers that is a lot more entertaining and charming than the last three "Star Wars" put together. A wonderful unique music score by James Horner kicks off the film as we follow unusual "little person" Warwick Davis (in one of his best roles as sorcerer's apprentice) goes on a quest to stop dark magic forces. Joanne Whalley as a sexy warrior princess was one of my first childhood crushes in this film. One of the few watchable fantasy movies for the"
