Why oh why have I never seen this wonderful hilarious movie before when it's been around for so long? I am definitely going to have to own a copy!



I know a couple who have "As you wish..." inscribed in their wedding rings. I need to buy the special anniversary "Buttercup Edition." Hoping it has special features that my old VHS tape lacks.

Welcome to the club, EC. :D

EC: Tsk, tsk, it's been out 21 years (man I feel old) and you've just now seen it?! Wow!

"Have fun storming the castle boys!"

"My name is Inigo Montoya! You killed my father, prepare to die!"

Just watched the latest Indiana Jones film - it was Ok, quite enjoyable. Getting a bit tired of Ray Winstone's cockney geezer routine though.

We're finally getting the latest version of Wuthering Heights on TV next week, not hearing positive things about it though.

Princess Bride! What a fantastic film!
Watched The Beat My Heart Skipped 2 nights ago - a great little French film about a petty criminal, his father, and his deisre to re-teach himself classical piano. Quirky, well filmed and thoughtful.

Saw Time Traveler's Wife last night, not bad but not brilliant. Heard today they might be making a TV series based on it, hmm.
