"Whatever tickles your fancy" sounds like I should post about something random. And the most random thing I can think of right now is the movie "The Princess Bride."

I love this movie. I watched it again over the past weekend. I remember my reaction to it the first time I saw it. I bought the movie "Ever After," and it just happened to be part of a two pack, the other half of which was "The Princess Bride." I watched this movie and thought, this is the weirdest movie I have ever seen. And I've seen a lot of movies, but this one is still right up there in the random category. It has some of the most memorable (and hilarious) quotes and scenes ever (by the way, I know Westley is a hunk, but don't go looking for pictures of Cary Elwes now. You won't ever think of him the same).

It has everything: fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles... It's the greatest thing, in the world, except for a nice MLT- mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe (and if you haven't seen the movie, that last part won't make any sense).

"Fezzik, are there rocks ahead?"
"If there are, we'll all be dead!"

"No more rhymes now, I mean it."
"Anybody want a peanut?"

I love the Fezzik's rhymes. And Inigo Montoya's fake Spanish accent (which gives me the strange desire to watch "Prince Caspian" again). And the sword fighting, which is incredible (just like Gene Kelly in "The Three Musketeers," except I'm not a big fan of that movie).

Until next time,

  1. Loving this series! I am truly obsessed with this movie. As a kid, I thought Wesley was dreamy and the movie was sweet. As an adult, I see all the hilarious humor. And I still think Wesley is dreamy. "When he said, as you wish, what he meant was ... I love you."


Please feel free to leave a comment, I love to read them! :) I reply to each one, so be sure to check back, especially if you asked a question.
