Anna scored a $1 DVD copy of LadyHawke at the op shop the other day.
What’s that? You don’t know of LadyHawke?
To be honest, the trailer doesn’t really sell it, but trust me this is an excellent film about a cursed werewolf and a cursed hawklady in love who team up with Ferris Bueller and Rumpole of the Bailey to break their curse and win each other’s love again. It’s awesome. I watched this movie a bajillionzillion times as a kid on a crappy TV-dubbed VHS tape. It’s pretty shlocky, but it’s also pretty wonderful too.
Anyway, I did the only thing a sensible person could do in response to such a great op shop find: I livetweeted the sucker.
It’s a blow-by-blow retelling of one man’s evening spent rewatching a movie he’s watched over and over since his teenage years. There are laughs and there are tears and there is also what may well be the beginnings of what I like to call “The Ladyhawke Cinematic Universe”.
