All from The Last Unicorn, partly because I want some variety, partially because I love the film, and partially because there's so many freaking Buffy sound sites out there that take their soundfiles down because they're tired or bored or gafiating, but leave the fricking pages up! Requiring me to click and click to see if any of the soundfiles are actually there. Ahem, Anyway.

Yeah! I saw your JF post and thought about commenting, but couldn't think of anything to say except "Word." TLU is one of my fave books/films. I'm pretty much a sucker for anything Peter Beagle's ever written.

Beagle is amazing. I have TLU on my pooter, the animation's nothing spectacular (in some places, like the outlaw camp, really quite bad; in others, such as Mommy Fortuna's, it's pretty. Backgrounds always good), but the actual screenplay? Guh. Especially Molly's first big speech ("Where were YOU?")

*swoon*

Last Unicorn! Just downloaded that from Kazaa Lite. When are they going to release that mo-fo on DVD??

Beats heck out of me. I have a very old dubbed vhs copy, and a used original vhs copy (that I haven't looked at yet, heh) and I would *love* a DVD version.

I've heard they'er working on a live-action, though, a la LOTR.

You're KIDDING.

I have to know so I can stalk the director and exchange sexual favors for a bit part! I could be like a guy on a horse or something!

Oh God. The special effects and costumes are cool, but the synopsis?

Molly is a human so pure that she can really recognize a unicorn. They both become friends in one single moment of gentle understanding.

Please, please don't cut out Molly's initial middle-aged bitterness. That was the most beautiful paaaaart.

I'm going with bad synopsis -- it does say PB wrote the screenplay himself, right?

Peter S. Beagle's new script is adding a lot of new elements to the charm of the classic and (as in the novel) a new location - the village of Hagsgate, where the curse of Haggard has begun.
This film is not a "remake" of the famous classical animation film, it is the final feature film adaptation of the original novel - exactly as author Peter S. Beagle always visualized it.


I know he wrote the original script, and that was the best part of the animated version - and I just downloaded the script, and whee it's in it! Also looks like there's a bunch of new stuff, but Molly's lament is virtually unchanged. The potential for visual effects in that one scene is astounding. *swoon*

I'm such a manic fanboy. *g*

Also: I recommend downloading the script. It's a good read all on its own.

...I need to make me some LTU icons.

Actually, Haggsgate was in the book, but got cut from the first movie adaptation (which Beagle also wrote). I'm going to guess that the other new stuff involves some of the other, smaller bits that didn't make it into the first adaption as well.

I read my copy about once a year. It's part of an old, hand me down collection of his early short stories. And if you haven't read Lilah the Werewolf or Come, Lady Death - go find them.

Yeah, I'm a big geek. :)
