Feeling Old

Jimmy Fallon has great taste in television. And he has made me feel quite old. A few years ago, he reunited the California Dreams cast.

This morning, a youtube video was released of a partial Saved By The Bell Reunion. The 90’s child in me did a happy dance.

Happy Thursday!

Throwback Thursday-The Princess Bride (1987)

The other day, I reviewed As You Wish, Cary Elwes’s memoir of making The Princess Bride (1987) .

The subject of this Throwback Thursday post is The Princess Bride.

A young boy (Fred Savage) is home sick. His grandfather (Peter Falk) is watching his grandson and reads him the story of The Princess Bride.

Westley (Cary Elwes) is a farm boy in love with Buttercup (Robin Wright), the daughter of the owner of the farm where he works.  She returns his love, but he does not say “I love you”. He says “as you wish”. Wanting to better himself, Westley leaves the farm to change his fate. Several years pass and Buttercup is engaged to Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon). But the prince is not so charming. He needs a reason to start a war with a neighboring kingdom. Buttercup is kidnapped in order to start the war.  What is not known to Buttercup is that the man who rescues her is the man she has loved all along.

This movie is incredible. It is part satire, part traditional fairy tale and extremely enjoyable.

I recommend it.
