As You Wish… Rob Reiner’s Fan Favorite Fairy Tale Celebrates Silver Anniversary;
the 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Edition Debuts October 2nd from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment
In this timeless film, a grandfather narrates the story by means of telling a classic fairy tale to his young grandson upon his bedtime. Although he is forced into listening at first, the boy ultimately becomes invested in the story and loves it just as much as his grandfather! This feature will explore some of our other favorite children’s books that have been made into equally engaging movies, such as Percy Jackson, Where The Wild Things Are, and Fantastic Mr. Fox.
All of these books and films have taken over the universe leaving consumers desperate for another taste of Harry’s adventures in witchcraft and wizardry!
In this classic story that was turned into a visually stunning film in 2009, Max sets sail to find a world of happiness but instead he is faced with terrifying creatures quadruple his size is both height and width. It is here that he finds his newfound friendship and personal significance on the island.
These films that makes the dream of riding alongside the courageous and glorious Aslan about as real as its going to get. We’ve all wanted to be friends with a lion at least once in our lives, oh how I envy Peter, Susie, Edmund and Lucy.
Roald Dahl and Tim Burton, come together to bring this outlandish story to life on the big screen. With one of the world’s greatest children writers and one of the film industry greatest creative masterminds at the helm of this project, a film such as this is bound to get everyone licking wallpaper for a taste of the magic.
Just as utterly engaging as the book. The film totally encapsulates the magic of Percy Jackson’s encounters with the gods of Mount Olympus. Embarking on a worldly adventure with his friends Percy battles against the fuming wraths of the gods, whilst falling in love with the beautiful Annabeth in the aim on saving his mother – BRILLIANT!
Yet another demonstration of Wes Anderson’s sheer brilliance! With the aid of international superstars such as George Clooney and Meryl Streep and combining them with the innovative use of foxy stop motion animation it undoubtedly provides the film never ending appeal.
