I miss movies with sincere fantasy worlds; free of "surprise" cameos, forced humor, and smug references.
It may not be a tight ship under scrutiny, but it feels good to watch. Plenty of practical effects and well designed costumes add to the weight of these old school fantasy flicks. Also features one of my favorite James Horner scores. I could listen to the "Colwyn And Lyssa Love Theme" forever.
With that said, I've always wanted more action with the glaive (that crazy ninja star, flying knife weapon). It's front-and-center on all of the posters and video covers but barely used until the final 15 minutes.
