I enjoyed this movie a lot. But I would say 'no' to a sequel.

The brownies were the best part of the movie, I think. Well, except for the 'wanna breed?' scene.

/not a woman!?

Oh, Subby, you are so wrong...

Sly explained the three seashells ages ago.

/two used to pull poop out, third used to scrape away remnants.

I thought it was 2 to spread the cheeks, and one to scrape.

Help! There's a peck here with an acorn and he's pointing it at me!

Are the three acorns similar to Dr Evil's three testicles?

/actually, a very good answer by Warwick
//probably pissed off the script supervisor when it was cut

I'm kind of: meh.

But as long as Hollywood is out of ideas and is remaking crap like Red Dawn: why the fark not give us some follow ups. At least they'd be new material. I really don't care for their do-overs. Why take old B movies that earned A grades and thrown A money at their remakes--remakes that, at best, only turn out to be B movies?

Warwick once gave Val Kilmer £5000 to help get Willow II into production.
Kilmer apparently ran off with the money.

Sly wasn't keen to go into details, as I recall.

That movie was so much fun. It's a shame the director never really worked again.

Exactly! That's why in the first shot you see of Marcellus, he has a Band Aid on the back of his neck, because that's where his soul was stolen from.

I've never seen Willow, at 31 should I even bother?  If I saw The Neverending Story for the first time today I'd probably not like it.

Willow is a fun movie.  Most the effects are good as well, almost everything is real.  Also look for The Dark Crystal.

Some parts are quite cheesy (tiny comic relief characters, for instance), but I think it's worth seeing once. Warwick Davis does a good job as the lead, and it has one of my favorite Val Kilmer roles ever.

Actually it was diamonds. Then Taratino realized he was repeating his Reservoir Dogs MacGuffin, so he made it vague.

Apparently he loves the fan theories, especially the crazier ones.

No.  I love the film, but it's probably been built up too much in your mind.

It's a Hobbit rip off, Lucas couldn't get the rights to Tolkien stuff.  Ron Howard had a bit too much slapstick comedy in it, for my tastes.

I forget the answer to that, but I want to say that the excellent text commentary on the DVD covers it.

The Man Who Knew Too Little.  Another fun movie.

It's gotta be done right. Elora Danan is grown and ready to be queen, but the evil Bavamorda has resurfaced and seeks revenge. Get a young unknown actress, beautiful but with some acting chops, give as many of the original actors who want a chance to reprise their roles , then watch the money roll in!
Believe me, it's a lot better idea for a reboot than some of the other dreck they've put on the screen.

That is a sequal and not a reboot.

Is that from The Man Who Knew Too Little? It is one of the films I am still stuck with on VHS because there doesn't seem to have been a region 2 DVD release of (or a BluRay). One of Bill Murray's best roles to my mind.

If you've read the sequels, you know how awesome this would be.

Please do this Hollywood. Give us Peter Dinklage in a full length film where he gets to play both hero and villain. It will be glorious.

The sequels are already written. "The Shadow War Chronicles" by Chris Claremont and George Lucas. No Bavmorda but the villain is pretty awesome.

I thought the sequel trilogy of books was awful. Elora Danan the teenage brat was a bit too much to stomach.

In other news, I just found out something that I did not know. Apparently, the two-headed dragon had a name. It was called "Eborsisk" and was named after Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel. That's probably common knowledge amoung most true Willow fans, but it was news to me.

I still wonder whether the writer was making that up to make Stallone realize he was asking a stupid question, or whether Stallone made it up to make the journalist realize he was asking a stupid question .
