That's how I feel about anyone who hasn't read and/or watched The Princess Bride. It is something very seldom experienced -- that rare occurence when the book and the movie are equally excellent. And, since it's Valentine's Day, what could be a better blog subject than a love story featuring sword fights, fire swamps, Rodents of Unusual Size, and torture? Nothing, that's what. It's perfect for people in love AND people in the Pit of Despair.
MY FAVORITE QUOTES
Inigo: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
Vizzini: Inconceivable! Inigo: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Valerie: I'm not a witch, I'm your wife.
Westley: Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for awhile.
