A fairytale for cynical seen-it-all-before kids, this is the most Goldmanesque of movies, romantic without being yucky, classical but quirky, tricky but this time not too tic-cy, tapping into a childlike yearning for heroism and adventure.
Like many American children of the late eighties, I cannot count how many times I’ve seen The Princess Bride.Even the addition of a sixth finger on my right hand would not speed the process. For my generation, this is not just a movie; it’s a facet of our adolescence and a building block of our world-view.
[Espaço Nimas] Can't stand the way social networks (and film fests to a certain extent) have eventified cinema. Everyone's main course: Torrents, streams and downloads. A special 'event' screening (with gifts+whatnot) takes place and people gladly flock to attend it. Yet, most of the time, they don't quit TV, torrents & VOD, whining about the sad the state of film (notably its mainstream ilk) and its output ▽
Yes, it's a children's story, but I liked it, too! I feel a bit sad for people who are too "grownup" for this film. Wallace Shawn's finest performance! Full of memorable lines and scenes. A bit silly, but utterly charming.
A romantic classic that marks Reiner's best work with a marvelous script by William Goldman full of quotable dialogue, adventure, comedy and romance. Casting was extraordinary featuring career best turns by Cary Elwes and Chris Sarandon and memorable turns by Wright, Guest, Patinkin and Andre the Giant. A fairy tale for child and adult alike.
Cinematically inert -- it is in dire need of a dash of Curtizian spice to bring it to life. A fawning exercise in cutesy sentimentality and occasionally amusing comedy, it never once manages to generate anything even remotely resembling excitement, unlike the adventure novels (and films) it thinks it is a tribute to. Only Peter Falk lives onscreen in any interesting way.
I'm certain that if I had seen this when it was released, I would have loved it and had the enduring love for it that people seem to have; however, I came to this for the first time during my curmudgeonly midlife. Need I say more? 3.5 stars
One of the worst soundtrack that I've ever heard. Mark Knopfler may be a brilliant musician, this piece of crap music is an ear-rape. The film was cheesy but full of funny moments and good intentions. I just wish that there could have been more "papier-mache" sets, like the one in front of the Hills of Insanity. This was great.
It's entertaining, but the "meta" aspect is superficial. A reviled but far superior film like Lady in the Water uses the fabrication of a fantasy to comment on the nature of stories (and what they mean to those that create & bear witness to them) in a far more intelligent & sophisticated way. Much better is the genuine fantasy of a film like Legend; a bold & visionary work far beyond Reiner's limited cinematic grasp.
