The Princess Bride is unforgettable. It stuck with me over the years because of it’s unique sense of humour, characters, and story. From a technical aspect the film has been studied in film schools because of it tight, crisp structure, and entertaining scenes that come one after another. The Princess Bride is romantic, adventurous, funny,  and “inconceivable!”

Award winning director Ang Lee brings this bestselling novel to life. Life of Pi is a visually beautiful well put together movie. How do you think you could survive in a life boat with a 450 lb Bengal tiger? This is one of the best films from 2012.
