Released the year I graduated from high school, twenty-seven years ago, I didn’t actually see The Princess Bride until it came out on VHS; however, from the first time I saw it, it became one of my go-to movies, one of those films that, if I’m surfing through the channels and see it on, I’ll stop, sit back, and enjoy it to the end. There are only a handful of films that are in this category for me, and although it isn’t technically or artistically one of the best films out there, it’s one of my favorites, and can hold its own, thank you very much.
