Alex J. Cavanaugh is hosting a weekly Wednesday movie quote, and this week's theme/grouping is light fantasy.
I had a tough time choosing just one quote so I'm going to go with my favorite three, all from the same movie:
"Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."
"Why are you smiling?"
"Because I know something you don't know. I am not left-handed."
"As you wish."
And it's hard for me to stop there. I love, love, love this particular movie, and can mostly quote it from beginning to end. The rhyming section on board the ship is tempting . . . but I'll stop now.
If you don't know this movie . . .well, you haven't lived yet. Really. It has one of the best choreographed sword fight scenes in a movie and they had a fencing master teach the actors. The only other movie I know with sword work that excellent is Pirates of the Caribbean. (the first one)
Long pause, while I think/daydream through various fight scenes from various movies . . .I feel an idea for a blogfest coming on, but there's no time now . . .maybe in late May? Would anyone be up for a Favorite Fight Scene Fest in late May? Or is that too violent? Or should I write a series of fight scene blog posts?
Have I mentioned I like sword fight scenes before this, and that a long time ago, in this galaxy, I used to fence foil and sabre?
So, do you know the movie? Are you taking part in Alex's ongoing quote fest? Do you like sword fight scenes? Do you fence?
A fun, upcoming blogfest that I couldn't resist adding into my February blog tour craziness:
Level Up Blogfest brought to you by Allison of Geek Banter and Jamie of Mithril Wisdom invites us to share our favorite games. Check it out! I'm so excited, I already wrote my post.
