I have seen Ladyhawke more times than I have seen any other movie. My brother and I watched it over and over again when I was in high school. We would test each other on the most obscure lines. We were fascinated by the movie, and I've carried it with me through the years. I love my brother so much and this movie brings back some of the good memories of our childhood together.

I've read some criticism of the music in the movie. It is a bit different, but I've grown fond of the distinctive way Richard Donner uses music in his films. The animals in the movie are amazing. The horse is so huge and perfect. The hawk and the wolf are magical. The animals added so much to the story and the way it came to life on screen.

You will recognise most of the actors. John Wood is so effective as the evil bishop that he still visits my nightmares on occasion. Matthew Broderick is young and fresh in this movie, he was just the person to play Phillipe the Mouse. Michelle Pfeiffer is ethereal and so lovely, it is easy to understand the bishop's obsession. Rutger Hauer embodies the cursed captain Navarre.

"No mouse today, he's run away. To ease the pain, he's down the drain."
"Not unlike escaping mother's womb. God, what a memory."
"Drink. Forget." "An hour ago you were drunk and you remembered."
"He called upon the powers of darkness for the means to damn the lovers."
"No one escapes the dungeons of Aquila and lives to tell the tale."
"She flew away. Gods truth, she flew away."
"Are you flesh or are you spirit?" "I am sorrow."
"You must save this hawk he said. For she is my life, my last and best reason for living."
"Alabaster skin and the eyes of a dove."
"Bring me the wolf. The wolf that..........loves her."
"Our lives are in your hands now."
|I don't like watching Michelle Pfeiffer in any other movies because I want to always remember her as Isobeau.|
