Fellow fan commentator Tysto (http://www.tysto.com/) joined Justin and myself (Your Soulless Minions of Orthodoxy) in our recording studio for a collaborative commentary on the 1988 Sword & Sorcery Epic--Willow.
This was a blast to record because of course three heads are better than two. But also because the three of us of really like the film. Not only for nostalgia sake, but for the fact that its a stand out of its genre that still holds up today. As with other films of its kind Willow draws upon a shared pool of mythical elements - a child of prophecy, an evil queen, a lovable rogue, a hero on a journey, etc. But those familiarities shouldn't keep anyone of this generation or the last from enjoying this underrated film. Either young or young at heart Willow takes you on his journey with him.
