The Princess Bride
This plot driven feature hits hard and fast due to its massive amount of plotline that it has to cover within just around 100 minutes which is the main reason why it works like a charm. William Goldman's screenplay might be gripping and exhilarating but it surely isn't smart due to uneven pace that makes the audience uncomfortable and feel like something is missing and been skipped. Rob Reiner still needs to ante up the game for this time the feature got saved due to the enormous potential of its script. The feature majorly fails on performance too for no one delivers; which comes as a shock especially from Robin Wright, except from Mandy Patinkin. The Princess Bride has a simple familiar love story genre plot that only works due to its witty and sometimes humorous one-liners which helps resemble it to practicality.
After all that cringe, it was just a classic love story. Her lover dies in a tragic accident at sea and she gets super sad having to move on, she gets taken away to be the new princess when she doesn't want to and of course the prince is a terrible evil guy. Soon she gets kidnapped and taken away by three bandits and has to be rescued by her hero. It's basically like a fairytale love story.
When I was watching the film there were some scenes that you could say were too bright. You could see the super bright lights on set reflecting of the rocks way to much. The sun shining would not look like that at all. A couple of scenes you could tell super easily that everything was fake and you could say made cheaply. However some scenes were actually very good like when they were in the forest it looked like they were in a real forest and I liked how it looked. Some scenes seemed to have dark humor which I personally thought it was funny but some people might not think the same. Other scenes like in the water there were these eels that actually looked realistic and were super cool. Something I really seemed to like about the movie was the way the characters talked. They had that fancy type of high class talk and it really went along with the movie perfect. A couple of movie mistakes were seen if you look very closely. They weren't anything too completely crazy but they were there. It was things like props being in different spots throughout a scene, you could see crew equipment in other scenes, hair being in a different position between shots, fire being too far away to burn buttercup in one scene. One when wesley lands far away from his sword but in the next shot he is right next to it. A sorta major mistake was when you could clearly see buttercups stunt double was actually a man with a full beard.
. The bandits, Vizzini as the leader, Fezzik as the muscle, and Inigo Montoya as a swordsman. I personally really liked these three since they were the funniest out of everyone. Vizzini with his classic line of "inconceivable" was really funny for me and I think it really set a fan base for him. He was definitely one of the funniest characters in the movie. Fezzik was the classic friendly giant that was taken for granted by vizzini. Inigo Montoya said he was just a part of this for the meantime till he got enough money to hunt down the man who killed his father. One part of the movie that was very funny to me was when the three bandits were being chased by a man in black. All of their interactions were very funny.
Overall i thought this movie was great. I went into it expecting it to be like garbage but in the end after it was all over i wished i could see it again. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone.
