Willow

My 8 year old daughter loves this movie. She owns the dvd. I told her Zavvi has Willow on steelbook. She told me to order it, so I did. Once it arrived. My daughter and I were very impressed. The picture is clear and crisp. The sound is awesome. The steelbook itself is very impressive. Comes in a gloss finish. A must for any steelbook collector. Love the artwork on the inside and outside. Thanks Zavvi. You made my daughters year. She wanted me to ask Zavvi. Can you do Small Soldiers on steelbook.

Willow Blu-ray Steelbook

Willow - Steelbook Edition is a mixed bag of different movie venues and audience reactions, ranging from originality to predictability, from exciting to downright weird. It lacks the ingenuity and spirit of such child-oriented movies as "The Neverending Story" and "The Goonies," but for the most part, it pays off, and you may be surprised to find yourself enjoying different sections of the film. The beginning is wonderful, a highly suspenseful opening in which an evil queen brings all pregnant mothers in her kingdom before her in hopes of locating and destroying the one chosen to bring her reign of terror to an end. A midwife smuggles the child out of the castle, and before she is set upon by wildebeests, she sends the child floating down the river, where it comes to the attention of the Nelywn community. In the world of Willow, there are two sets of people: the Nelwyns, a community of short, midget people, and the Daikinis, who are regular-sized humans. The baby is a Daikini, and so Willow Ufgood (Warwick Davis) is called upon to return the baby to its original habitat. Setting out on the dangerous journey, he soon meets adventurous Madmartigan (Val Kilmer), and the two pair up to take the baby to its destination, which changes almost every minute as they encounter such beings as a forest fairy, and a sorceress who comes in the form of a rat, a bird, a goat, etc. The movie isn't really interested in setting a straight course for itself. The constant changing of setting, pace, and destination are all a reminder that a movie such as this is more of a device for action and humor rather than logical plot. Because this movie is aimed at children, and has a childlike quality of its own, it gets away with such a tactic. Having said that, the film is exceptionally entertaining. It's full of humor and yes, even a little bit of suspense. It has likeable characters, who are sometimes so goofy and cumbersome that you'll laugh until you cry, and a story that is the stuff dreams are made of. Kilmer's character is a throwback of sorts to the swashbuckling heroes of yesteryear, while Davis is a hero as well, and the one we all come out rooting for. The action sequences are mindless good fun, ranging from a high-speed horse chase to some showdowns at various castles throughout the land. These scenes all give Lucas and director Ron Howard a chance to showcase some of the finer set pieces in a children's movie, from knights in armor and beautiful yet foreboding vistas, to dark, gothic castles and otherworldly creatures conjured out of magical powers. Watching the movie as an adult proves to be far different than from seeing it in my childhood. As a child, I remembered the excitement of such scenes, and looking back on them, I find that it is unfair to dismiss the movie on its logic. I do find that some scenes are somewhat disturbing for younger children, at whom the movie is aimed, such as the sequence in which a two-headed dragon rises out of a river; they seem a bit too daring for a children's movie. The fantasy land created in Willow lives up to the expectations of the genre, and even goes a bit further. The story is a bit befuddled, but paying attention to its flaws takes away from the fun and excitement it has in spinning its tale. The special effects are dazzling without being jaw-dropping, and the action is intense without being gratuitous. As a children's movie, Willow is pure, nonsensical satisfaction.

Willow Steelbook Bluray

First off Willow was a childhood favourite of mine having watched it on its original release in the cinema in the late 80's. It's full of adventure, magic, action and the special effects hold up well even though the movie is now 25 years old. The case print is amazing and the photo does not do it justice in my mind. Now the transfer on this is exceptional, it's like watching a movie that was made today. It's very clear detail and the sound is amazing, and I play my movies through a sound bar. The only drawback for me was the special features , in that respect for some reason the sound kept breaking up all the way through it. At first I thought was my settings on player ( Panasonic DMP 320) but it's not as it doesn't happen with any of my other movies, so I can only put it down to that as it's the original untouched audio resulting in sound that is just very worn. You will not be disappointed with this movie whether your an adult who is re watching this from childhood or you're a kid who has never seen it, it's a true epic family movie that sadly don't get made all that often these days.
