Thank You Rutger Haur

One of my favorite movies of ALL time is Ladyhawke.  It was the first time I remember seeing Michelle Pfifer and looking to see what movies she was in.  The love story of Ladyhawke was the perfect fairy tale brought to life, where the evil was destroyed, the good survived, and old wrongs corrected.

This sort of movie wouldn’t make it in today’s cinema viewing and hope to catch young viewers.  There isn’t enough gore, nudity, or foul language to attract viewers.  This doesn’t detract from the fact it is my favorite movie of ALL time and was perfect for a geeky girl to love with all her other geeky friends.

I think, for me, Ladyhawke is a movie, and a story, about hope.  Things turn out well for the characters.  There is hope throughout the movie and after seeing it you feel there is hope for your happy ending.

Thank you Rutger Haur for creating the perfect knight in shining armor who saved the girl and lived to have a life with her.  You reminded me things can work out – not that they are, but can.  I needed that reminder.  Thank you for making my favorite movie of ALL time.

    I recall the movie fondly, too. Oddly enough, I remember seeing it on VHS at home with my father. That’s odd, because he and I rarely watched movies together.
