WILLOW

Warwick Davis, Val Kilmer, Ron Howard

"Rollicking fantasy-adventure, from a story by George Lucas (not hard to guess, since it follows a definite STAR WARS formula) about a little person (Davis) who takes on the challenge of shepherding an abandoned baby to its place of destiny--where it will destroy the evil powers of Queen Bavmorda (Marsh). Plenty of action, humor, and eye-filling special effects, though it seems a bit intense at times for the youngsters at whom it's targeted." -amazon.com

Nothing really was so great about Willow. The only thing that leapt out at me was how wonderful life was in the nelwin village. When they had the fair, and everyone was dancing and merrymaking, you could feel the happiness and almost dance along. Very little happened as the movie went on. In the castle scenes, I couldn't help but be constantly struck by how fake and movie-proppy everything looked.

The greatest part was when Kaia and Willow were separating. I felt like there was some monstrous untold love story there, and I wanted to know what it was. It seemed like real love.
