I recently rewatched Legend starring: Tom Cruise (of scientology fame), Mia Sara (of Ferris Bueller's fame) and Tim Curry (of Rocky Horror fame)and I have to say that I still love and adore as much as ever. It has everything! Unicorns, a dark lord trying to steal sunlight, fairies, elves, true love, and some fighting with swords. And the make-up was pretty stellar for it being 1985. When I saw Tim Curry's name on the information I was in complete shock. I would have never guessed it was him underneath that red, monsterous costume.
It also took me way back to my childhood, the sense of nostalgia ever so close. I was suddenly ten again, sitting on my bed with my sister on a hot, sultry summer morning (I swear the only time TBS ever ran this movie was during the summer) thinking that it was ALL possible, that magic was real and one day I was going to find me a unicorn. And I still believe in that magic (fairies are real, I tell you!). It's the same feeling I get when I watch Labyrinth (I would stayed with David Bowie :)or even an old Disney movie. What about you, is there a movie out there that takes you back to that feeling of pure, innocent belief in all that's good and beautiful? That makes you want to recreate it in your own words for future generations?
