No, not The Princess Diaries, that’s a big shit one – this one is The Princess Bride, and although it sounds like a crap Disney movie, it’s actually a really good action comedy flick from the 80s. It’s the age-old story of a bloke on a quest to save a fair princess who’s being held against her will by an evil shit-brain. And obviously there are giants and swords and all that shit thrown in to make it even more exciting. Which it is, and it’s also very funny – this is not your average Disney movie. WE SAID THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE DISNEY MOVIE.
Not that there’s anything wrong with Disney per se, but The Princess Bride just has that something a little bit different to your usual fantasy flick. We can’t exactly put our finger on it but whatever it is it’s WELL GOOD, INNIT?
It also boasts one of the most quoted lines in film history – “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” Also, it’s actually not that annoying when people quote it, not like “I love lamp”, “Game over man! Game over!” or “I like sex! It’s nice!” – all of those can fuck off thank you very much.
So quote away, “Hey everyone, I love FRONT magazine loads and loads because they told me about a great film and now everyone fancies me!!” You know, stuff like that.
