Favorite Fantasy Movie
Gracious--it is Wednesday again, already?
Time fer our blogger meme, Movie Clip Wednesday, hosted by Milk River Madmen, who is really cold up in Montana, so go over an check his post on fantasy movies an' wish him warmth.
Well, now, this were sorta tough.
Akshully, I think James Bond is fantasy. Worried some of y'all might argue wif' that, so I went traditional. First, I hunted around fer a clip from some tense scenes on Lord of the Rings. Wouldn't ya know the embeds wuz disabled? Still...
The Ride or Arwen is worth watchin'--the aerial view at 55-57 is great shot, great horse actors to boot. More important is the message--keep movin' through the horror--doan stop if thar' be only a half a breath left in yore body, DOAN STOP! ( An' what color are her eyes?) Ya' can click to view here. It's jes' 3 minutes.
Next, in sympathy wif' all the snow sufferin' goin' on, I figgered Tilda Swinton as the White Witch would give ya' 2minutes of the real shivers:
But my All Time Favorite Fantasy is ... .Lady Hawk. Dungeons, slashing swords, evil curses, a clever thief, damsel in distress ---This is early Michele Pheiffer with prime Rutger Hauer --an' a very young Matthew Broderick, who turns in a fantastic performance of comedic genius--though I must say, once again the HORSE actor is a contender--oh wait! The hawk actor is amazin', an the wolf? Whar' can I git me a wolf like that one?? This movie is enchanting--a riddle to solve, a beautiful couple in love cursed by a jealous worm of a being, spectacular scenery, eerie medieval forest, rousin' sword fights...an' fanstastic moon shots--the moon is almost a character.
Two Academy Award nominations fer music, an' the music is, ah, different.
Trouble is, thar' jes ain't no good clips of this movie==very frustratin'. Reckon' this will have to do--but jes order it up from Netflix--you'll be happy ya did--great entertainment.
