I can always tell that I used to love and re-watch these movies a lot, even though I haven’t watched them since back in the day, if I’m constantly remembering lines and specific sequences from the film. Such is the case for Willow —¬†even though it was a bit of a bomb back then, I always really liked it. At the same time, it’s not like we got a lot of good fantasy films at the time. I still think it’s too bad we didn’t get more movies set in this world, which I’m sure was Lucas’s intention. I’d suggest it would be cool to try and revisit that world now, but at the same time, this movie takes so much from The Lord of the Rings that it probably wouldn’t make much sense — and god knows we’ve had enough Middle-Earth movies.
