“Thereu0026#39;s enough reviews here to show how enjoyable and entertaining this movie is, but I had to put my own word in…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI simply love this movie. I watched it with my parents when I was very young, and have been watching it constantly ever since. Itu0026#39;s a movie that I just canu0026#39;t seem to grow tired of. For one, I absolutely love the medieval fantasy genre, both in books and movies. From a small child Iu0026#39;ve loved knights, castles, dragons. the whole sort. This movie, quite simply, puts the viewer into an imaginative world where everything seems real. Second, the characters are so enjoyable to watch, you really begin to feel for them – all of them. Even humperdink, whose name does him justice, gets pity at the end. Lastly, the grandfatheru0026#39;s list of the qualities of the book at the very beginning are all true… this story has everything. That is why it is such a classic, when everything comes down to it. From the moving love story between Wesly and Buttercup, to the dynamic and brilliantly scripted duel between the Man in Black and Indigo, to even the hilarious bickering from Vezinni to his lovable giant, Fezzik… This movie finds a place to include EVERYTHING one can imagine. The story moves along at a great pace, and you feel as though the whole land has been covered when the book is closed. Furthermore, the whole conception of using the u0026quot;telling a storyu0026quot; approach doesnu0026#39;t taken away from the realism of the story, but raises it even more by showing how mesmerized the boy is, listening to the tale – just as we are, in front of the screen.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMaybe it was how I was captivated to the screen, watching it as a child… Maybe it was how Iu0026#39;d pop the movie in and turn a boring Sunday afternoon an exciting adventure as I grew up… Or maybe itu0026#39;s how I can sit down with friends and all enjoy the movie together, laughing at its funny parts, and cheering at itu0026#39;s exciting moments. The movie has a place in my heart, and that will never go away. A u0026quot;10u0026quot; on the scale, and even these words, canu0026#39;t begin to tell how much I love this movie.”
