Flick Pick: Willow

(MGM, 1988)

A nice little sword and sorcery flick from George Lucas by way of Ron Howard. Featuring Warwick Davis before Harry Potter, Val Kilmer before Tombstone, and New Zealand before Lord Of the Rings, it's a lot of fun in a very small package. The only drawback is that while it pioneered a lot of modern CGI, it went a little crazy with it, and some of the dark parts are too dark for younger kids. But it's a fun story with a good cast, told well, and Val even got a wife out of the deal - for awhile.
