The director’s cut really makes this movie the masterpiece I always wanted it to be. It is the greatest fairytale of the 80s, with amazing sets and costumes, not to mention a beautiful story. Tom Cruise and Tim Curry are the shining cast members, but everything is really perfect. Who would’ve thought making Satan your villian is the easiest way to instill fear? I really enjoy the idea that it’s so bizarre as well. You’ve got unicorns and goblins running around causing the apocalypse and somehow it makes sense. Again, I have to mention the look of the film because it’s just so breathtaking. There is no CGI or fake backgrounds, it’s all practical sets. They just don’t make epics like this anymore.
