Last Tuesday was the 25th anniversary of the theatrical openings of The Princess Bride, and this coming Tuesday sees the release of a 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray of the movie, which features a new two-part retrospective documentary. Also on Tuesday, a new print of the fantasy adventure classic will screen during the New York Film Festival, complete with a reunion of actors Robin Wright, Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal and Carol Kane and director Rob Reiner (no Fred Savage? Inconceivable!) for a post-film conversation. So, we’ve got a new Scenes We Love this week to honor the beloved comedic romance (don’t call it a rom-com), and maybe this sounds like an impossible task. After all, if you love one scene from The Princess Bride, you love them all. We could just say, we love that 100-minute-long scene in which a stable boy-turned-pirate fights a giant, a genius and a swordsman in order to rescue a princess from kidnappers and then stop her from marrying an evil prince, all as it is told by an old man to his grandson. Then just embed the film in its entirety (if it were available this way). But we can isolate a handful of favorites — that’s six scenes, if we go by Count Rugen’s hand — and if there are any others you wish to bring up, we invite you to do so.

Okay, so admittedly, Hollywood movies have the ability/inclination to skew our visions of different ethnic groups. For years after seeing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, I was convinced that all Germans swam in giant rivers of cocoa. After living here, I can confirm that it’s not true at all. Giant rivers of Pilsner are a different story. However, a group that’s definitely been given the cartoon treatment is African men. These young gentlemen have made a very funny video to challenge the stereotype that Hollywood has created:

Submarine: Cinema 2011

Kees van Dijkhuizen has done it again. I’ve written up a few of his videos on the site in the past, mainly his tributes to directors with their own unique style. But not until now have I been able to share one of his wonderful end of the year film tributes, which he’s done for the past three years. Videos such as this gives me goosebumps. They serve as reminders of how good or bad a year in the film has been. This has been one of the great years, and this tribute confirms it for me. There’s been a lot of these sorts of compilation videos floating around the web recently, but I think Dijkhuizen has delivered the best one, check it out after the break.
