35 thoughts I had while watching The Princess Bride for the first time

Everyone tells me that The Princess Bride is one of those movies you have to watch before you die. I’m not really a fantasy movie fan, but I have been putting it off for too long.

  1. This screams 1987.
  2. Is this based on a book?
  3. Were there pirates in the Renaissance?
  4. Buttercup reminds me of Bella from Twilight for some reason.
  5. Is that Lord Farquaad?
  6. Never trust men you find in the woods.
  7. I guess she had that coming.
  8. So they took her to start a war?
  9. Who fishes at night?
  10. That’s a big eel.
  11. Who climbs a rope like that?
  12. Is it supposed to be a surprise that Westley is the guy in black?
  13. If you’re going to kill someone, kill them.
  14. Why would you use your left hand if you’re right handed?
  15. How would Vizzini know that Westley knocked out Inigo?
  16. Why is she blindfolded?
  17. Are there criminals in Australia?
  18. If I was him I would have put poison in both cups.
  19. Wow, I was right! That never happens.
  20. Did he jump onto that horse?
  21. Why doesn’t Westley tell Buttercup that he’s alive?  
  22. Which set did they reuse? The Bog of Eternal Stench or Dagobah?
  23. Stop, drop, and roll!
  24. His arm healed fast.
  25. That crown seems too large for her head.
  26. Plan a party, murder your wife, and frame someone for a crime. #firstworldproblems
  27. Wouldn’t it be easier to stab him?
  28. Why would Buttercup trust him for a second?
  29. Billy Crystal ex machina?
  30. Worst guards ever.
  31. This better not end like Romeo and Juliet.
  32. How did she not notice that he was on the bed?
  33. Did he kill the six fingered man?
  34. Couldn’t they have just walked down the stairs?
  35. That’s 98 minutes I will never get back.
