Val Kilmer and Warwick Davis Reunite, Not As Madmartigan and Willow, But Still


I could write a dissertation on how the movie Willow formed a great deal of my psyche growing up. Be it the furious and fierce Sorsha or the shirtless and flowing-haired Madmartigan, it left its mark on me. ANYWAY. Val Kilmer tweeted this photo of himself and the fantastic Warwick Davis on set of Life’s Too Short, Davis’ show with Ricky Gervais. Presumably they’ll be making fun of, and in turn promoting, the release of the Willow anniversary blu-ray. I can’t wait.

    I would say that I like “Willow” because Mad Martigan is an anti-hero who’s not the stereotypical grim brooder. I like that he can play his more swashbucklery.

    Peck! Peck, peck, peck, peck!
    That way to the lake!
    : No, no, no.
    That way?
    : No, no, no.
    Then which way is it?
    : That way.
    That way?
    : That’s what I said!
    We go that way!

    :D Awesome movie.

    Willow is one of my favorite movies from childhood, along with The Princess Bride (and it makes me feel so old that it’s been 25/26 years since they came out omg). I can quote along with all of the dialogue in Willow. Val Kilmer as Madmartigan was my first celebrity crush, and Sorsha apparently started my lifelong obsession with badass redheaded heroines. So I am insanely excited about the bluray release, too. :D

    I think that’s my favorite fantasy racial slur.

    I thought Life’s Too Short had been cancelled! Guess I ought to watch, for this at least. And I’m definitely buying that blu-ray.

    God, I love Willow. That movie had some of the finest casting of all time. Also, a reminder that George Lucas wrote that movie. It was a perfect mix of romance, comedy, adventure, action and fantasy! What happened to you, George?

    Technically I believe it has been cancelled but they are going to wrap it up with a special.

    I think that was the appeal with Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow, at least in the first film. He was the scoundrel that did heroic actions for selfish reasons and did not angst over it. The introspection that showed up in the later films (god the Davy Jones’ Locker scenes in the 3rd film were miserable!) destroyed the sheer fun of the character.
