The Princess Bride at Palace Electric Cinema

By Barcham - 11 September 2013 26

If you’ve ever seen the Princess Bride, I don’t need to sell you on going to see it at the movies. So instead watch this terrible trailer for it and get excited.

If you have not seen the Princess Bride, don’t watch the trailer. It reveals way too much, has terrible music, and it might turn you off seeing what is one of those classic “part of a complete childhood” fantasy movies that should be required viewing. Instead go buy a ticket, see it on the big screen, and be amazed at how it fills a hole in your life you never realised was there.

What other fantastic movies are required childhood viewing?

I’d totally chuck the Neverending Story, The Labyrinth, and the Dark Crystal on that list, anything else?

You killed my father...

What’s Your opinion?

Why not?

Nishi, New Acton.

Did my sarcasm sensor miss this one?

No, I just didn’t know where it is. Thanks for answering 😀

Great to see PB back again, and highly topical, too – “never get involved in a land war in Asia”.

The Wizard of Oz is also pretty trippy and there are some great versions of Alice.

I’d also count anything Roald Dahl as falling into the disturbing children’s movie category.

But we were raised on sci fi rather than fantasy… Star Trek V is pretty awesome for kids! Or for advanced viewers try Dark City, Logan’s Run, Existenz, etc. By the time they get to The Matrix it will seem like Hackers to them. 😉

Rutger Hauer featured surprisingly often in my childhood movie watching.

Never seen Stardust but I loved the book.

Might have to track down a copy.
