|That's right Duane "The Rock" Johnson the PRINCESS BRIDE.|
|This is Princess DIARIES - just an awful film|
|What is it another documentary about Diane Spencer?|
|Not this Prince|
...that doesn't mean the film is a about a royal wedding, the film is about the central protagonist (Westley) trying to stop this wedding, so it should be called "The Adventures of Westley" ....actually Princess Bride actually sounds manlier than that.
Incidentally how is Buttercup a Princess, surely she only becomes a Princess once the marriage takes place? She was not born into royalty, although "The Daughter of a landowner Bride" doesn't really roll off the tongue does it?
|Better stick with Princess Bride, the audiences are having trouble with the other name.|
1/ "When I was your age television was called books"
The movie begins when a young boy is sick, and his Grandfather calls around to see him and gives him a gift, to which the boy replies rather indignantly "A book". First of all we have all received crappy presents, but its the thought that counts so act grateful.
|"Oh WOW, a book, my favourite"|
|"When I was your age television was called books"|
Television did exist and you kept calling it books while everyone else around you tried to explain to you the difference.
|"Okay one more time, this is a book, the big black thing is a television"|
|"Ok, sit back I am going to read you this DVD"|
Okay, so for those of you that haven't seen the movie, stop reading this go watch the movie and come back. But anyway Humperdinck hires Vizzini to kidnap Buttercup to start a war with the neighbouring country.
Westley (now the Dread Pirate Roberts) chases Vizzini and his men to rescue Buttercup. He first defeats the Spainard (Inigo Montoya) at sword play (which i will look at in point 3).
|"I am Inigo and I like to party"|
|"I am Fezzik and I like to party"|
|"I am Vizzini and ONLY I like to party, no one else parties"|
|"Excuse me, we are having a date"|
Maybe he thought he had Buttercup alone so he could make a move on her with a romantic picnic? But he has her tied up, and blindfolded, maybe she is into that you say, maybe but he has her sitting beside him, and the second glass opposite him.
So he must have known Westley was coming, which means he had defeated both his men, so obviously this man was dangerous, so why stop and set up a picnic? Instead of trying to get as far away as possible?
Okay so Westley is a talented man, but seriously he beat Inigo Montoya at fencing? Westley has only been gone 5 years, and been studying swordplay under a pirate. Inigo Montoya has been using swords since he was a little boy, his father was a sword maker, and been practising for 25 + years one would imagine.
