On this edition of In Defense Of, We Got This Covered comes to the defence of Ridley Scott's critically derided fantasy fairy-tale, Legend.
Never seen but sounds worth a watch!
It's so fn good. There need not be a in defense of for this film. I highly recommend it, one of my faves.
You really need to seek out the 113 minute Director's Cut (which is still truncated from the Ridley Scott's first 125 minute submission). It's the superior version.
This movie is legend.
Love it because of Tim Curry 😍
I prefer the one with the Goldsmith score.
Best bedtime movie ever. Rarely ever get past the opening credits before I'm sawing logs.
Why does this movie need defending?
For the most part, film critics didn’t like it:
RT - 42%
MC - 30%
"Film Critics didn't like it"
Then it must be LEGENDary!
Fuck critics. To think that I would have missed Boondock Saints, Star Wars a New Hope, Blade Runner, Jaws, Big Fish, Constantine, John Wick..(.too many to name) because of what critics think.
