Willow

By Sarah Sanders

Few movies really capture the innocence of the fantasy genre quite like the 1988 classic, Willow. There’s magic, swords, sorcery, an evil queen hellbent on obtaining a baby that isn’t hers, and, most importantly, dwarfs. It’s not every day that a movie portrays a midget as the reluctant hero. But don’t worry because Warwick Davis owns it!

What makes this movie awesome (not just that it was directed by Ron Howard and produced/co-written by George Lucas, though this helps) is that they are 100 percent serious. Throughout the entire movie. But the ridiculousness hits a climax when Val Kilmer’s character, an arrogant warrior named Madmartigan, gives Willow a boost on his shoulders. Apparently, it was an arduous journey.

He got tired.

Thanks for the bad film cred, Val!
