LOS ANGELES (AP) – There’s no shortage of movies about weddings, and most of them are pretty lame.
They usually feature the most stereotypical depictions of women being neurotic, naggy, insecure or all of the above, they’re crammed with corny slapstick, and they frequently culminate with a mad dash to an airport or train station for some breathless, last-minute I-love-yous. Continue reading
X-Entertainment dissects Fred’s Bedroom – posted by Matt on April 23, 2011
We might have a new series on our hands. A short while after Tweeting a link to my case study of Buzz McCallister’s bedroom, this response came in:
Russ was absolutely right. Fred Savage’s bedroom from The Princess Bride might’ve actually been even cooler than Buzz’s beroom. (Well, no…but it came close.)
Today, we find out why. Continue reading

Love requires absolute devotion.
“As you wish.”
But sometimes a little bit of healthy cynicism is a good thing.
“Hold it, hold it. What is this? Are you trying to trick me? Is this a kissing book?”
Patience is a virtue.
“You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles.”
Be sure to get a detailed job description.
“You never said anything about killing anyone.” Continue reading
Popcrunch.com – November 14th, 2010 by Tim –16 Feelgood Movies That Don’t Treat You Like A Moron
When someone calls a film a “feelgood movie”, that usually means it’s trite, boring, saccharine, cliché, or any combination thereof. Suitable for churchgoers, all-age events, and your Aunt Sally who has all the kitten photos. That said, there’s a collection of films out there that legitimately do make you “feel good”, and do so without losing their intelligence or humor. Continue reading
Posted by Mendy – Mother is a verb
So, this year for Halloween, we used “The Princess Bride” as our theme. There were some other contenders, but everyone was happy with a role offered by this 80s cult classic, so we embraced it.
Here’s the breakdown: Continue reading
Are they bringing Andre the Giant on their honeymoon?? ‘Cuuuuuuz that’d be awesome. At the very least I hope they find a castle to storm. Also, they couldn’t have made the lovely Buttercup just a wee bit lovelier? She looks a little vacant, like she took a sedative before the ceremony. Then again, who wouldn’t pop a Valium after all she’d been through? Maybe it’s historically accurate after all.
Hello. Our name is not Inigo Montoya. You did not kill our father. Do not prepare to die. Instead, prepare to win two of the coolest swords in the kingdom!
Let us explain…no, there is too much. Let us sum up: Our friends at Factory Entertainment have been from Florin to Guilder and back again all to gaze upon the legendary weapons that won the day in Rob Reiner’s classic film The Princess Bride. They are now producing precise re-creations of these beauteous blades and you could win one…or both!
The Dread Pirate Roberts’ sword and the Inigo Montoya sword were modeled directly from the movie props and are being produced in a limited edition of only 750. Each spring steel blade has a leather-wrapped handle and chrome-plated steel accents. Both also come with a wall-mounted display shield and prop story booklet, and the Dread Pirate Roberts’ sword includes a leather scabbard. Beautiful as Princess Buttercup!

Of all the props or prop replicas from TV shows or movies I’ve ever coveted, the one that has been the most inexplicably absent, as far as I was concerned, was the sword of Inigo Montoya from the movie “The Princess Bride.” A focal point of the movie, this stunning blade was famed throughout Spain, Guilder, Florin, and much of the rest of Europe as the blindingly fast weapon of the sword master Inigo Montoya. The finest sword ever crafted by his father, the greatest swordmaker in the world, it became Inigo’s when the sword’s buyer haggled over the price and ultimately killed his father. Inigo spent years devoting himself to the practice of the sword so that one day, when he met this six-fingered man again, he could say, “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” Continue reading
