The Princess Bride celebrates 25 years!

The Princess Bride is celebrating it's 25th anniversary by being released on Blu ray - with special features (including voice commentary by both director Rob Reiner and Screenplay writer William Goldman) as well as a reunion between director and stars! To help commemorate the anniversary,  a new picture was chosen for the cover (which was voted on by fans)

I was so happy when I had the opportunity to review the DVD - it was one that I fell in love with the first time I saw it, many years ago. I STILL remember the first time I saw it - one of my girlfriends brought it over to watch at my house, on VHS (yes, this was way back in 1994 - VHS was still cool back then). We watched it in my parents family room and I felt immediately transported into the fairy tale.

While it wasn't a huge hit at the box-office, it is a great movie. I love the type of humour that is used, it has action and romance - everything a true fairy tale would include.

Watching it again as an adult was great - it has been MANY years since I have seen it (probably the last time I came across it on the television); I think my favorite character would have to be Max (Billy Crystal) and Fezzik (Andre the giant) - and of course, I love the theme song also (side note - my aunt and uncle had that song played at their wedding!)

If you haven't seen the movie - check it out. If you have seen it, but it's been a long time - watch it again!
