~ Legend (1985) ~
Friday, february 14th. my beloved and I decided to watch the fairytale movie Legend. I have been wanting to watch this movie for such a long time, and finally it happened. The movie is perfect for me, filled with love, unicorns, faries, bubbles and flowers!
There are so many beautiful and magical scenes that are really appealing to me. I actually think that it is more important for a movie to be visually stimulating than to have the perfect story or great actors sometimes. (Kind of ironic of me to say that, with a background as a drama student, hehe).
It may seem like it's all sparkliny happiness, but it is actually a pretty dark movie. I chose to only include beautiful and positive images from the movie, since I want my blog to be a beautiful and positive place, but the dark and gloomy elements are a big part of the movie.
Once upon a time, long ago, "Darkness" senses the presence of two Unicorns, guarders of the Power of Light. He wants to destroy them and get their horns to create an Eternal Night og Cold Darkness.
Princess Lili and her friend (and love interest), the forest boy Jack, gets separated by magic and go on their own journeys to find each other / save the Unicorns. Jack is accompanied by the elf Honeythorn Gump, the fairy Oona and the dwarves Screwball and Brown tom. Lili is alone.
This is a movie about the battle between good and evil, but despite this sligthly childish theme, it is not a very child friendly movie. It find it rather scary and deep. Darkness is indeed a character in the story, but it is also something we all have within us, thus we can never fully destroy it...
- Have you seen Legend? What do you think of it? :)
