Movie Review by Zara
January 31st, 2007

Unicorns are so cool

This movie was widely panned when it was released. Too dark to be considered a family movie, too fantastical to be enjoyed by too many adults, there wasn't a great space for it in the marketing scheme of things. Plus, Tom Cruise had long hair. For the star of the very popular TOP GUN, this was considered an ill conceived career move.

A young man who wanders around in the forests falls in love with a young maiden and tries to share his world with her. When she breaks the rules in a very Eve fashion by wanting to touch the unicorns, all hell breaks loose. One of the sacred creatures loses its horn and the next thing you know Tim Curry has arrived in red body paint and huge black horns.

Gee, I might actually be telling you that I like a movie with thick religious undertones. Hmm... ya think?

I liked this movie when I was a kid. It was bizarre and my parents couldn't stand it. All the better to record it and then play every other day to annoy them. Mia Sara is a sweet vision, although the poor thing couldn't have acted her way out of a paper bag. There's a very good reason why you don't hear her name anymore.

If you like fantasy features, this is a good addition to your library.
