This is the (restored) trailer to the 80’s movie The Neverending Story, a movie I grew up watching repeatedly.
A fairytale created with modern day technology, Snow White with a twist. Snow White and the Huntsman appealed to the girl in me. The fairytale touches, both evil and good, were very much enjoyable; the experience during the hallucinations in the dark woods and the touches of fairytales in the sanctuary. Especially the snakes on the branches (or… snake branches), the butterflies that act like the petals of flowers, also the dark winged humanlike creature coming out from the trees. It gave it a type of Alice In Wonderland feeling, also baring resemblance to the 80’s movie Legend which I’ve dedicated an entry in the past. I used to love these save-a-princess stories as a child, naturally fantasizing about being the princess.
I liked the evil stepmother’s, Charlize Theron, spiky crown. Not a fan of the Twilight movies so I haven’t seen much of Kristen Stewart besides what I inevitably see online and in magazines. I was unsure whether she would make or break the role as Snow White but she did better than I was prepared for.
That intro, the song, it could make me cry and I’m not a crier. There is something about it.
Ridley Scott’s Legend was my favorite movie when I was little.
“Once, long ago” in a world of unicorns, fairies, goblins, and demons, the Lord of Darkness beseeches Mother Night for her protection, lamenting his isolation, exiled underground by an unseen force. He senses the presence of the Two Unicorns who safeguard The Power of Light, and bids his goblin servant, Blix, to find and destroy them. They are to bring him the horns, to create an eternal night of cold darkness, so he can roam the lands freely and ensure sunshine’s warmth never returns to the realm of Light.
I’ve watched and loved the previous American Pie movies and I looked forward to watching Reunion, like everybody else. Reunion was funny and worth watching if you liked the preceding movies. Reunion kind of brought the classic teen film series an ending, we’re seeing what they have accomplished and what become of them 10 years after finishing school. They are adults now and life is not as it used to be. And yea, Jim is caught naked in the kitchen ones more.
