I didn't remember Tim Curry was the devil character. What a good makeup/effects that was! Did they get any awards for that?
They were nominated for an Oscar in Best Make-up catagory, but lost out to The Fly.
Yes! I have this DVD collection. When I was younger I only remember ever seeing the U.S. Theatrical version but with the collection came the additional Director's cut with the score from Jerry Goldsmith rather than Tangerine Dream.
Yes we have this on DVD, I must say I much prefer Richard Donner's other movie 'Lady Hawke'
Nice....I haven't seen Legend in years. In fact, the only thing I can really remember are random flashbacks of Tim Curry. The best kind of flash backs in my opinion!!
Lady Hawke , Wow, that brings back memories. I haven't seen that film in ages.
I'm a fan of Legend -- minus what was to me, annoying attempts at humor that is.
It seems a classic tale of a mortal (however innocent) intervening in the world of faery which leads to dire consequences.
I'm not necessarily a Tom Cruise fan but I think he was fine here. Mia Sara was superb in my opinion -- and to my mind she had a tough role. I thought 'Gump' also was very good, and Una. And Darkness of course! And if memory serves, Lily leaves without Jack in the later, special edition ending. This would make sense to me as she is 'other' in his world, as he would be in hers, although I think Lily asks if she can still visit Jack.
However, again the attempted humor not only annoyed me but ripped me out of the fantasy. Not that I don't enjoy humor or lightness, but I think it's very tough to do in a fairy tale and maintain the right tone -- although I'll admit that it's fairly subjective as to just what the 'right tone' is!
If I knew how to edit films I could improve this one (to my liking) by shortening it! but I liked it in general.
