The Beginning of A New Type of Movie

Legend was one of the first major fantasy films of the 80's. It opened up a new chapter in the book of movie genres. Tom Cruise and Mia Sarah look fabulous as two virtuous mortals, Jack and Lily, who are in danger of losing their world to the evil dark lord, played by Tim Curry. This movie has fairies, goblins, elves, unicorns, and even a water demon ( Meg Mucklebones ) Legend is a compelling version of good vs. evil in a realm so pure. The movie blends well and makes the viewer think, is there really another realm like this?

I love this movie. The story and characters are amazing but the setting is even more spectacular. I still get goosebumps watching a couple of the scenes and they are totally inspiring. However, I was disappointed that this edition does not contain the original scene version. It only has the director's cut. Which while interesting does not provide the same feeling that I remember from before. We were upgrading our VHS collection and we'll have to get a different edition of this.

    legend original or director's cut

    okay i had seen this when i was younger and had no idea what the heck was going on but now i watch it with an adult perspective and i'm like no way can this be for kids. so after watching the director's cut i must say that its a little better but i liked did not like the new ending. i loved and remembered well the original ending including the music which in my opinion fit the setting. but for the rest the story made a little more sense. and i'm going to say that this is a film that i can watch with tom cruise (since i don't like him but i can make an exception with legend). anyway, watch the director's cut and decide whether you prefer the original or not. mia sara looks so...pretty either as the princess or the evil princess either way she's still pretty. tim curry was unrecognizable and just freaking amazing with all that make up. man did i have some nightmares when i was young with certain scenes from this. good old childhood memories and such a awkward classic.

    Legend

    The movie's alright with the dazzling costumes, make up and setting. Tom Cruise is okay as the lead hero and character as Jack with Mia Sara as Lily and Tim Curry is scary as Darkness but is for some reason tall. I mean really tall and the horns on his head look heavy. Pretty good movie none the less.
