ESCAPE WITH YOUR LOVE INTO THE WORLD OF ROMANTIC MOVIES!
The Princess Bride (1987)
In this enchantingly cracked fairy tale, the beautiful Princess Buttercup (Robin Wright Penn) and the dashing Wesley (Cary Elwes) must overcome staggering odds to find happiness. Giants, swordsmen, six-fingered counts, murderous princes, Sicilians, pirates, rodents of unusual size and even death cannot stop true love from triumphing. Mandy Patinkin and Andre the Giant costar in this modern classic.
This is a delightful, funny romantic romp. Mandy Patinkin is superb- ("My name is Inigo Montoya..." haha!) The side story with Peter Falk as the Grandfather is charming too. A light and sweet romance that doesn't hesitate to get silly.
Socialite Tracy Lord (Katharine Hepburn) prepares to remarry, but her ex (Cary Grant) and a tabloid reporter (Best Supporting Actor Oscar-winner James Stewart) have other ideas as they converge on her home for a fateful visit. The three stars form an incomparable romantic triangle in one of the most tantalizing screwball romances ever. Ace Hollywood women's director George Cukor adapts this urbane Broadway comedy with precision and wit.
A fun trio to watch. It wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be. I found it a bit sarcastic and obnoxious, especially the Jimmy Stewart role- and I usually like him! Katherine Hepburn wore some Outstanding Outfits.
The attack on Pearl Harbor is told through the eyes of pilots/friends Rafe (Ben Affleck) and Danny (Josh Hartnett). Before America enters the war, Rafe volunteers in Europe, where he gets shot down and is presumed dead. When he returns, he finds Danny in love with his girl (Kate Beckinsale). Through the turmoil of Pearl Harbor, the two try to resolve their differences.
