sword and sorcery films

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is the most underrated guilty pleasure of our time and I hope you all enjoy your groot and talking raccoons, when you can have super dark Jude Law and incredibly fleshed out character of Arthur along with giant elephants and snakes.  

anonymous asked:

Any idea about what the Champion's (both old and new, including Zelda) favorite movies would be?

Link: He actually has a hard time with most fantasy films. While watching he tends to point out inaccuracies in the sword play or how certain monsters would behave or the tactics employed by the various armies. He also dislikes Chosen One narratives since they strike a little too close to home. But put him in front of any given Mad Max movie and he eats it up. From the original to Fury Road, little else gets his blood pumping as much as seeing the Road Warrior barreling across the wasteland.

Zelda: Ladyhawke. For those of you who have never heard of it, Ladyhawke is the story of a knight and the woman who loves him, both cursed by a jealous bishop whom the woman had spurned. Under the terms of the curse, by day the woman takes the form of a hawk while by night the knight transforms into a fearsome wolf, effectively keeping them from ever truly being together. The film follows them and a young thief as the knight seeks revenge upon the bishop as well as the means to break the curse. And if you don’t think that isn’t the kind of film Zelda would drag Link to sit down and watch at least once a month then get out of my face.

Revali: Top Gun. Just… Top Gun.

Daruk: Doesn’t really watch many movies. Pretty much the only one he owns is Secondhand Lions and he only watches it when he’s sure nobody will hear him cry.

Urbosa: Gladiator. The spectacle, the action, the emotions. All of it combines to make this movie Urbosa’s absolute favorite. You can tell whenever she’s watched it because she can be heard lamenting over the state of disrepair that the colosseum has fallen into. Of course, she insists that fights would not be to the death. She also has a soft spot for 300.

Mipha: The Time Traveler’s Wife. She’s more in love with the idea of the film rather than the plot itself, finding the idea of a love born out of man’s ability to randomly jump back and forth through time and interacting with a particular girl throughout her life only for them to fall in love to be terribly romantic. She takes a little bit of issue with how it ends though. No spoilers in case you haven’t seen it.

Teba: Robin Hood: Men in Tights. There’s just something about absurd trick shots and clever witticisms that he enjoys.

Yunobo: High School Musical. He relates to a lot of the issues the characters deal with and the cheerful musical method of delivery is far better suited for him than tense dramas or hot blooded action.

Riju: Moana. For the most part she finds a large part of herself in the character of Moana. They are both young women under the pressures of leadership and faced with impossible tasks that they must find a way to resolve. Riju also really enjoys the deep cultural roots present in the film and characters, mirroring how deeply connected the Gerudo are to their culture and traditions. She has a hard time believing that the ocean is really that big, but outside of that she has very little issue with the film. Once she got Link to watch it with her and insisted to him that he was the Maui to her Moana. Link of course pointed out that he was the one that both retrieved the Thunder Helm and ultimately tamed the Divine Beast. RIju punched him in the arm and told him to just roll with it.

Sidon: Conan the Barbarian. He’s a big fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger in general but this is by far his favorite film with him in it. Swords, sorcery, revenge and riches. This film has something for everyone. It’s part of what inspired Sidon to become some ripped to begin with.
