Fantasy classic!

I remember watching this movie as a child and wearing out the old VHS tape. The music provided by the 70s music group, America, provides a wonderful folk mood to the piece. I recently discovered this movie on DVD and immediately bought the movie. I watched the movie and read the book. I love how the animators were able to bring forward the essence of Peter Beagle's masterpiece of fantasy fiction. The Last Unicorn is story about friendship and love. The Unicorn discovers that she is the last unicorn in the world. Searching for a sense of identity, she starts a quest to find the other unicorns. That quest introduces her to Schmendrick and Molly Grue. The Unicorn, Schmendrick and Molly are each searching to fill a void, and as an audience member, I vicariously find a way to fill my void through their experiences.

An underrated classic

I saw this movie in theaters when I was a kid. I didn't see it again for the longest time until I found it on video recently. I rented it and was instantly reminded of what a wonderful movie this is. I bought my own copy a week later. It's one of the few book-to-movie translations that actually stays true to the spirit of the book. Probably due to the fact that Peter S. Beagle wrote the screenplay. A must-see. Gotta love that theme song!

Favorite and Keeper

This is one of my all time favorite movies. I grew up watching this movie and cherished it. The characters are timeless and the quotes from this movie are so moving. The things that the characters say are so real and true to life. They often reflect some of what's in my own soul and I love that. I read earlier that one of the other reviewers compared this to a Hayao Miyazaki and I would totally have to agree. It has the same elements of the films, the whole reality without the happy ending thing, but it's not sad either. As Schmendrick says, "There are no happy endings because nothing ends." I admire Peter S. Beagle for not only writing a fabulous book by the same title, but for writing this fabulous screenplay as well. I must admit, I'm a bit hesitant to see the upcoming movie for fear it will ruin the old one. I wonder what they will do about songs. America's songs are timeless. They take you to another place and you are part of the magical world that is created for you through animation. While my family is sick of me watching it all the time still and my roommates are definitely tired of me watching it, I will continue to do so since this is a movie that can be watched over and over without anyone getting tired of it. Fabulous. Definitely give it two thumbs way up! Huzzah!
