    I thought this was a very good flick but my favorite part is probably Val and Warwick are in the basement of that lodge.

    At Tir Asleen when Val Kilmer rushes the army, and they fall back. He thinks they are afraid of him, until he looks behind him and sees the enormous monster.

    The sled down the mountain was pretty funny. Especially when Madmartigan falls off the sled.

    James Horner's music.

    It's a really, really bad movie.

    "Willow" was okay. It pretty much had the SW formula, told in a fantasy world borrowed from old fairy tales and J.R.R. Tolkein. The film had great promise and I enjoyed parts of it, but it never lived up to its potential. The film has lots of plot holes and could have used more action and exotic monsters. SW and Indiana Jones overwhelmed us with all the wonders of the sci-fi and adventure genres. "Willow" tried to do the same for fantasy, but came up short, it was like "Conan the Barbarian-Lite" at times.

    On a side note, the film seems somewhat incomplete because it was supposed to be the beginning of a trilogy with two sequels that never materialized. The film did okay at the box office, but not what everyone hoped for. I guess Lucas lost interest in "Willow", although I believe director Ron Howard said it was one of his favourite films. There were rumours a while ago of finally making the sequels, but there's been no word since. Lucas is busy with SW and possibly a fourth Indiana Jones, plus "The Lord of the Rings" would steal the fantasy thunder from any new "Willow" films.

    Don't forget that sequel novels were written by X-Men scribe Chris Claremont beginning in '95.
