Episode 99: Ladyhawke (1985)

ladyhawkeThe second in our look back at fantasy films of the 80s feels very different from our first! This time, it's Christianity as the background for a tale of corruption in the church and a pair of cursed lovers in 1985's "Ladyhawke!" Directed by Richard Donner, written by Edward Khmara, Michael Thomas, and Tom Mankiewicz, this film seems almost haphazardly cast, and yet it works! In the lead roles are a young Matthew Broderick, Rutger Hauer, and Michelle Pfeiffer. Supporting them are Leo McKern, John Wood, Ken Hutchison, and a very young Alfred Molina! Again, the background aspects of the film (costumes, art direction, and sets) bring this story to life in the imaginary land of Aquila. And, like our previous episode, the score brings a unique feel to the movie, with its sometimes-medieval and sometimes-modern sound and rhythm, but when you have the legendary Alan Parsons as the producer, you're bound to get something that's a bit different! And, finally, the trio announce the results of their search for an appropriate pairing for the 100th episode, coming up next!
